Peachy pas­tels

Style at Home (UK) - - Do It Your Perfect Palette -

COLOURS

Go with cool chalky pas­tels to stop this look be­com­ing too sug­ary sweet. lemon, blush, sky blue, li­lac and mint are all soft and so­phis­ti­cated ice cream hues that will work well to­gether.

FAB­RIC

For a coun­try-chic scheme, ac­ces­sorise with pas­tel ging­ham or polka dot fab­rics. al­ter­na­tively, go for grown-up chi­nois­erie-style flo­ral prints con­tain­ing blooms and birds to com­ple­ment your de­sign.

FLOOR­ING

keep your floor­ing pale and sim­ple with ei­ther clean white­washed wooden floor­boards, or by lay­ing a cosy, deep-pile cream car­pet.

LIGHT­ING

Fab­ric shades make the look feel soft and tac­tile, and come in a wealth of colours. enamel desk and pen­dant lights now come in de­li­cious sor­bet tones to co­or­di­nate with a pas­tel pal­ette.

FUR­NI­TURE

it’s all about com­fort when it comes to choos­ing fur­ni­ture, so go for up­hol­stered ot­tomans and arm­chairs. Pale wood is perfect paired with pas­tel fab­rics.
