pastel shades pack a fruit-flavoured punch
High summer pastels this year are more about flavours than shades. Think of the ice-cream counter and take your pick. From the mint green sofas at Sofas & Stuff to the blackcurrant ripple take on the iconic Wishbone chair, the apricot lamp shade from Wild Wood to the zesty lime table at Hay, it’s all about offering a strong taste of subtle colour. Stop a scheme getting too sweet by mixing in a few acid shots, as Alexander Wang did on the catwalk, fusing strawberry crush with lemon sorbet. We recommend at least three scoops for full effect.
