Here in NY we got to embrace the start of spring with a wonderfully warm and sunny weekend. Now of course we are back to gray clouds and raindrops, but for two glorious days I was living in the land of dresses without tights and sunglasses.
With spring comes the re-immersion of pastel colors. From stuffed bunnies to Easter basket treats all around I begin to see light shades of pink, purple, blue and green.
While pastels in design conjure up images of bad decisions from the 80’s if done correctly it can look very current and chic.
I think the key to using pastels is to make sure to balance it with some darker shades.
This image from House Beautiful sums it up perfectly:
How chic is that tufted sofa! I’ll take 2 please.
This chair had to be my favorite thing in the display. Loved the buttery leather, loved the shade of blue/green it came in and to make it even more perfect it had nail head trim!
The bedding display was a bit more neutral, but I still loved it. Very understated yet stylish. It totally looked like something people would actually use in their homes not just something from a magazine spread.
There whole set-up immediately reminded me of these:
Don’t you think they would work framed up in a gallery wall in any of the rooms from above?
How do you feel about pastel shades in home decor? Do we love it or not so much?
Added more pictures to my DIFFA event recap. Now you can see what I wore and check me out at the table! Go have a peek!
