Coastal Colors: Pastel
Add a relaxed mood to any room with powdery hues of blue, yellow, purple, and pink.
Pretty pastels, like light purple and yellow, are ideal for creating a restful mood, and can work especially well in upholstery and pillows.
With the energizing elements of red and the diluting influence of white, pink is lively but soft, making it a perfect choice for bedrooms.
Pastels play together surprisingly well, and it might be because they appear together in nature. The ocean’s light blues, a sunset’s soft pinks, and sunny, subtle yellows seem to belong together.
Not ready to paint the whole house? Try coating a garden wall or fence with a soothing pastel. Your home will become an instant landmark in the neighborhood.
