Decorating with pastel colors? Find out how to usher soft shades into your living spaces

Pale tones that remind us so much of rainbow colors, when used for furniture, can transform our home into a welcoming and relaxing environment.

Pleasing shades of blush pink, powder blue, icy mint, peachy orange, and buttery yellow lend positive, calm feelings and create a laid-back atmosphere in any environment, both in homes and contract projects.

That’s right! Why limit the use of pastel colors to just one single room? These refreshing shades add a touch of audacity, originality, and grace, from the living room to the bedroom, and kitchen.

La vie en rose

Pinkish shades undoubtedly add glam and femininity to living spaces.

“The softness of pink brightens the room, increasing the perception of lightness.”

Pink is such a surprisingly versatile color and partners well with any furniture style, from the most classic to the most modern and contemporary. Combine pink elements with white to show its soft and sophisticated side or with furnishing accessories in striking contrasting colors for a chic setting.

The calming effect of blue

Blue is essentially relaxing and has the power to calm down the mind and body and aid meditation.

Yellow: timeless elegance

Yellow is a primary color that spins us directly into the summer season, creating a cheerful, fresh, and bright atmosphere to be enjoyed all year round.

“Yellow is a powerful color: romantic, a little nostalgic, and definitely positive.”

The combination of cold and warm shades such as yellow with gray, creates a modern and industrial look.

Green: an earthy feel indoors

Green is undoubtedly an original choice if you’re looking for classy and modern interior furnishing deco.

The fresh, spring shades of green, from delicate sage to mint green, are extremely easy to combine.

“These colors are soothing for the eyes and remind the delicacy of nature.”

Peachy freshness

The delicate yet vibrant echo of peach orange represents a stylish choice when it comes to interior design.

Widely used in the 70s and 80s, this juicy color is once again very trendy. Thanks to its ability to draw attention, it brings to mind all the vitality of spring.
