There’s no denying that kids love pastels. Candyfloss pinks, powder blues and lemon yellows are common sights in nurseries and playrooms up and down the country. Because of their popularity with tiny tots, these sweet shades are sometimes overlooked in grown up interiors. But that’s a real shame, because pastels are perfect for sophisticated spaces. And they’re really versatile as well!
Here at Web-Blinds, we’ve summarised some of our favourite ways to introduce sugar-spun hues to your home. Browse these ideas at your leisure, or scroll to the bottom of the article to get the lowdown at a glance…
Colourful environments are always popular with children, but as we grow older, we tend to rein in our rainbow tendencies and confine ourselves to beiges and creams. Pastel blinds – like this Birds Chintz fabric from our cream Roller blinds collection – are brilliant for injecting a hint of personality into a neutral scheme.
If you’ve already taken the plunge and decorated your room in a fab fondant hue, your windows are a brilliant place to introduce pattern. In this case, our Cottage Garden Chintz Roman blind shows off dusky rose detailing, for a ravishing rustic feel.
Alternatively, if bold statement prints aren’t your thing, you could liven things up with a touch of texture. Soft shades and tactile materials are a match made in heaven; the delicate wave detailing of our Vintage Turquoise Roman blind is just one tip-top example.
Provide a contrast
Pastels are great team players – they work well together and look marvellous with different palettes too. For a really striking effect, pair light blinds with darker colours. Here, this yellow Roller blind supplies a super-duper contrast to our khaki green walls.
