PASTEL PALETTE

As the new year rolls in, so too does the onset of pastel colours that are making rooms pop across the world. The trend follows PANTONE’s announcement of two pastel shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity – as its twin colours of the year. And with McConnell Bourn’s celebration of new beginnings comes an exploration of these relaxed hues.



From dusty pinks to mint green shades and baby blues, the pastel palette is your oyster when it comes to livening up an interior space. Used simply and stylishly, pastels can add an understated softness or a pop of colour to your home decorating repertoire.



With a plethora of colour combinations, it is a palette that lends itself to creating welcoming rooms within any family home. Use soft-coloured textiles and décor to inject light and space. Experiment with accessories; simple swaps or additions – from a dusty pink cushion to a mint green vase – can instantly inject a pop of pastel into a neutral space. Team this with a set of muted, silver-rimmed teacups and matching plates to transform your next summer dinner party.



With an ample palette and a creative eye, the key lies in achieving balance. Pastel tones create depth within a space when they are mixed with bold patterns, textures and dark surfaces. What then ensues is a true match made in heaven.
