Trend Alert: Pastels With An Edge

Pastels are one of the hottest color trends of the year, and we are seeing them in a whole new way. 

Pastel color, once only used for infant nurseries and in feminine décor, appeared mid-century as pale-color toilets, sinks and refrigerators.  The soft palette continued in popularity at the end of the 20th century with Cottage Style design and 90’s Shabby Chic. 

Modern design now uses pastels to bring contrast to a room, make a statement, and create a feeling of relaxation and comfort. 

Major brands like (Apple), Herman Miller and KitchenAid get it, and have begun to produce products in soft hues that are fresh, cool and modern.

The pastel palette is entirely at home in today’s bathrooms, bedrooms, sitting rooms and kitchens.  Whether you give your interior a complete makeover or just add pastel touches to your space, you will be in sync with current interior design trends and will surely fall in love with your new colors. 

Pastels can be blended with natural materials such as rattan, seagrass, bamboo or light/white wood for an ultra-soft design.  If you want to keep a more masculine edge, consider mixing darker color hard surfaces (chunky woods, industrial metals, dark countertops or hardwood floors) with pastels to create an equal balance among color spectrums.

Don’t forget the grays…light gray tones are also considered “pastel”.  Pale pinks paired with grays and blues are seen all over the design world right now!
