Red Living Magazine: Pastel Perfect

I don't about you folks but I've been crushing on pastels for months now. Do you remember Charlotte Love's pretty pastels shoot? It was one of those shoots you look at and think: 'Wowee, there are some super duper talented people in this world'. Well, speaking of talented people, one of my creative idols Mary Norden has yet again delivered an inspiring editorial for Red magazine. Notice how she mixed in occasional flashes of neon into the pastel tones; these small additions of stronger, bolder hues stop the finished look from feeling too staid. The pastel trend gains further ground with each new collection we see, both on and off the catwalk. Personally I have my eye on the wide stripe tablecloth and colour block throw pillows. How about you; where would you introduce pastels into your home?

  1. Love those colors especially when it was 100 + all week. All these colors look like fruit sorbets which is so desirable now! I would add pillows of color and tablecloths and napkins with all white! Love the white floor!

  4. pastels have certainly made its way into my wardrobe and now I have to start using it in my home. I'm with most of you to use it on accents like pillows and throws. Perhaps maybe on drapes too! Love a soft pastel blue fabric to contrast with white grosgrain ribbon for decorative details.

  8. I love pastels! And I think they are perfect for the summer. But it can get a little too girly if you ask me and be it that I live with my hubby, I try not too overdo it.
