Spring and pastels go hand in hand so lets make a good use of them and bring them in our homes. The living room is one of those places in the house that asks for light and positive energy, so pastels are great because they suggest peace, relaxation and calm. Here are some ways to use them in your room decor:

Pastels for your sofa

The sofa takes up the most space of all furniture pieces. So using pastels for it you will get a central piece that brings a soft touch to the decor. Pink is a great colour of choice, but also green, blue or dusty yellow.



And for the walls

Using dusty colours for the walls – painting, pictures or wallpaper – is a great way to give a fresh look to the living room. Use patterns or an accent wall so that the colours won’t get unnoticed.



Mix and match

Another great way to use pastels in your room decor is to mix them together. Combine different shades of pink, blue, with touches of bright yellow or even gold for a magazine-like effect. Here is an example:

But you can also mix the soft touches of pastels with neutrals or strong colours. Here’s a Nordic look with simple, elegant shapes and lines, lots of light, grey furniture and small touches of dusty pink. Looks amazing, doesn’t it?


If you want to have a spring feeling in your home, you can use these colours for your pillows or other textiles. You can also pick a rug in pastels that will add elegance to your decor. Also, small vases, decorations in pastels would be a great way to bring the fresh spring air to your home.
