Easy Ways to Lighten Up Your Home With Pastels


Gone are the days when any pastel shade in your home is confined to children’s rooms, Easter décor, or blankets passed down from generation to generation.  

These days, pastels are popping up all over the trendiest homes gracing Pinterest, Instagram, and home décor magazines alike.  

A throw tossed on the sofa, a light pink sofa or accent chair, a soft mid-century inspired rug - there are countless ways to add pastels in your abode. Keep reading to see a few of our designers’ favorite ways to incorporate color into your home. 

Start Small With Pastel Accents

Psst… pastels come in all shapes and sizes.

So, if you’re not sure if you’re ready to go all in with pops of pastel - Don’t sweat it! Try a bit of color on for size by adding pillows, throws, or decorative art into room or two.

A few of our favorites include this blush pillow kit, this festive pink art print,  this light blue pendant, and these purple pastel framed plates.

Tie a Room Together with a Pastel Rug

We’re the first to admit we love neutrals. But, if you’re looking for a way to elevate your room, that’s where pastels come in. 

We love the look of a neutral sofa set against a light pink, light blue, or even light purple rug. It gives your space a subtle pop that sets your space apart from the rest. 

Just Add Paint

When in doubt, add a little paint!

From colorful painted cabinetry in the kitchen to a painted accent wall in your living room or bedroom, a little paint can go a long way in adding some cheer to your space.

Pick a Pastel Statement Piece

Ready to commit?

We don’t blame you - we love pastels, too! If you’re ready to go all in, we can’t recommend adding a statement pastel piece to your home enough.

Our recommendation? Opt for a couch or accent chair, like these green statement chairs, this salmon dining chair, or this blue sofa.

No matter what route you choose, know this - a pop of pastel can bring a breath of fresh air into your home.
