ATTENTION TO FABRIC
Redecorate your living room with curtains and pillows in pastel shades to complement the rest of your interiors. Pastel rugs also work wonderfully, as they tie in the whole room together and give it a retro feel.
Paint your living room walls with sky blue pastels or a fresh white linen colour. Sugary pastel shades are also an amazing idea to paint your living room walls with; it adds a contemporary touch and makes your room come alive.
Extend your décor outside your home too, by painting your outdoor furniture in ombre to pastels shades. Or paint up empty glass bottles in pastels. These work wonderfully as decorative products too.
One of the simplest ways to make your kitchen interiors more interesting is by replacing your boring kitchen dish towels and tablecloths with those in pastel shades. Changing your refrigerator?
