Summer Pastel DIY Decorating Harlow £299

With warmer and brighter weather on the horizon, introducing pastels to the home is a fun, stylish way to get living spaces ready for summer

With warmer and brighter weather on the horizon, introducing pastels to the home is a fun, stylish way to get living spaces ready for summer. As an ever popular interior trend, pastels are a versatile option that can easily be adapted to suit a variety of interior styles in the home.

Bringing together an upbeat colour pairing and using a DIY-focused approach, Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture Choice, shares 3 tips on how to decorate with pastels in the home in big and small doses.

1. Colour block in small and large pastel accents

Pastels are a great way to introduce colour into the home, especially in living rooms with a subdued colour palette.

“Adding a hint of colour to neutral spaces will give a bright, cheerful boost of energy to the room,” Rebecca advises. “Introduce small elements like a vase or accessorise with cushions in pastel shades on a dark grey sofa to add a pop of colour that’s chic and effortless.”

“For a burst of personality, update the home for summer by giving a door a fresh coat of paint in the season’s trendiest shades. Neo-mint — a new take on the colour mint — is a unique pastel colour that radiates optimism and relaxation, while blush pink lends sophistication and a soothing feel to a room.”

2. DIY a pastel accent wall

A pastel accent wall in the living room is a striking way to create a dynamic, modern look in the home. It also makes a fun DIY project, where some masking tape, careful planning and pastel paint are all that’s required.

“An accent wall provides a cool backdrop to style furniture against whether it’s in the living room or study. For example, the neutral shades of a grey armchair in the living room allow it to stand out against a coral geometric wall while a lilac wall highlights the stylish silhouette of a black table and chair. These two looks create a sharp but sophisticated contrast and provide a burst of colour without being too overpowering.”

3. Pair bright pastels for a modern, bold look

For a bold and unique take on the trend, colour block bright pastels for a chic, summery feel. “An upbeat colour pairing, like mint and coral feature walls, adds character to a minimal aesthetic while still keeping the overall look understated and contemporary. It’s also perfect for spotlighting natural elements like potted plants,” Rebecca suggests.

“The colour blocked walls bring a room’s big and small elements together by highlighting its chic details: a modern armchair’s sharp lines and indoor plants that add a tropical spin to the pastel theme. A subtle touch with the right accessories – like a neo-mint cushion for a beige armchair – makes the wall colours feel cohesive to the room.”
