Channel the carefree nostalgia of a fresh spring day in the meadows with charming pastels like pink, yellow and green. Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture And Choice shares 3 ways to style a modern home with dreamy springtime pastels.
1. Soften a modern living room with pretty floral hues
Signal the beginning of warmer days with touches of soft springtime pastels in the living room. Create an airy look with fresh white walls and a timeless grey sofa with raised legs. “Bring in floral hues like Pantone’s Rose Tan and iris blue through scatter cushions and lively centrepieces for a dose of dreamy spring nostalgia,” says Rebecca. Then balance the space with pops of modern black and soothing greenery for a contemporary finish.
2. Use meadowy green walls for a touch of country charm
“Channel the relaxing feeling of a day in the countryside by painting your walls Pantone’s Tendril - a meadowy green that’s both lively and calming,” advises Rebecca. “Elevate the look with a fresh white wood dining set for a hint of contemporary country charm.” Then add pops of a light yellow like Pantone’s Anise Flower and light blue through flowers or artwork for a sunny, blue-sky effect.
3. Style a chic, dreamy bedroom with blush and yellow tones
Sweet and stylish, use a palette of pink, white, grey, and yellow in a modern bedroom. Create a contemporary blush haven with a half wall of desert pink like Pantone’s Rose Tan, and white shaker style panels.
“Wall panels are a great way to add character and depth without taking up floor space - and they can work as a mini ledge for learning art or displaying small accessories too,” says Rebecca. Choose a modern grey fabric bed, then add pops of muted yellow tones like Pantone Anise Flower to soften the space and keep things light and contemporary.
