Color Trend: The New Look of Pastels

April 19, 2018


Move over gray, you’ve had your moment. We’re ready for something more cheerful but equally chic. Enter today’s pastels. These aren’t the candy-colored hues of kids’ rooms and Easter eggs, but rather earthier, more sophisticated shades reminiscent of charming Scandinavian design. Ironically, the trick to creating this grown-up palette is tinging pure pastels with a hint of, you guessed it, gray. To see these pastels in action, check out some of these rooms.
