Pink and lavender are the most delicate of the pastel shades. Often associated with love, femininity and youthfulness these are colours that are generally found in bedrooms.
Here we have pulled together some of our favourite wallpapers, paint colours and wall art pieces and suggested ways to incorporate calming pastels into your home.
Soft pastel colours naturally lend themselves to delicate florals. Above we have teamed our small scale floral wallpaper Rose Cottage
from the Graham & Brown Spellbound collection with our lavender paint, Second Skin
, from the Platinum collection
Rose Cottage is a beautiful floral trail which has a stunning all over shimmer effect ideal for creating an elegant bedroom.
Watercolour shades are a great way of adding colour to a room confidently without being over powering. Here are two wallpapers from the Superfresco Easy Eden collection. We have chosen to team the Poppies
floral wallpaper with the co-ordinating Watercolour stripe
If you want to wallpaper all four walls in a room but want more than a feature wall with a co-ordinating plain then consider using stripes. Stripes are also great way to create the illusion of height and space to a room.
Below is Twine
hung horizontally, this is another way to consider using wallpaper to create a new look to a room.
Another way to add a splash of colour to a room is by using a piece of Wall Art. If you are just wanting to quickly update the look of a room inexpensively the wall art is the answer. You can keep upto date with the latest trends without having to change the whole room.
Pink Hearts Compendium
printed canvas is shown above. This photographic canvas would create a lovely feature in any room.
If your looking for something a little different with the added wow factor then Delicate Dandelion
wall art show below uses complimentary shades of pastel pinks with the stem and buds of the dandelion have been stylishly dusted with glitter. Sure to be a talking point with any guests.
