This room is pink and proud with a pastel pink crib, window valance and rug. Touches of green can be found in the valance, and a floral print art brings a pop of brighter colors to the soft space. An ornate pink chandelier tops off this feminine space with a bit of sparkle.
A unique painted stripe pattern flows down a stairway leading to an eclectic living room designed by Bob and Cortney Novogratz. The candy-hued stripes on a plain white staircase add a hint of whimsy and fun. The living room is decorated with vivid throw pillows, a bold area rug and modern wallpaper.
A peacock patterned wallpaper creates the backdrop for the star of the show in this corner set up. The beautiful pink chaise features a tufted backrest, smooth ironed skirt and dainty floral throw pillow. An untreated wood table and natural sunlight make the corner a perfect spot for reading or relaxing.
A pastel pink crib with coordinating bedding is positioned beneath a bright floral painting in this little girl's nursery. The large window is topped with a pastel pink and green valance, complementing the room's color scheme.
Part of what makes this kitchen so visually interesting is the way designer Caitlin Murray paired moody black countertops with pastel pink cabinets. The contrast is especially striking when set against the crisp white walls.
Designers set this kitchen stage with a wash of pastels: pink walls and island, gray backsplash, white countertops. Then, for a playful edge, they layered bold pops of color on top; bright rugs, a blue door, pendants in sherbet shades bringing in so much fun.
There's a lot to love about this colorful living room: the pastel pink sofa, the coral chair, and, without doubt, the white-painted fireplace. A large rug softens the hardwood floors and brings in a dose of yellow and blue, too.
It was hard to miss the predominance of pastel hues in this year's Cashiers Designer Showhouse. Shades of pink, soft blue and mint green graced many of the rooms and the prevalence of glass like this oversized bowl filled with smaller pink vases added to the sense of lightness throughout the home.
A designer trick for working with pastels is to limit use to just two or three colors. Lavender, lilac, baby pink, baby blue, yellow and lime green evoke an immediate sense of spring, but the combination can also read juvenile, overly sweet or feminine. If you stick with layered shades of celery green and pale pink, the overall effect is understated, fun and sophisticated.
Candy colors and sherbet pinks, yellows and lilacs get a cooler treatment in this color-packed bedroom from Catherine M. Austin interior design. We love how she transformed a narrow hallway connecting a bedroom and bath with a punchy, sweet hydrangea purple balanced with a selection of well-curated contemporary art. Even the bold white etagere becomes an artsy statement piece when it’s piled with colorful art and design books to create a mini library/gallery space.
Soft blue-gray blue walls pair with a bold pink changing table and green wingback glider to create this adorable nursery for Laila Ali's little girl, Sydney. Custom wall decals surrounding baby's monogram were created to achieve the look of sophisticated paneling, and framed artwork featuring angels adds a sweet and personal touch.
Incorporating soft pinks and pastel greens, this dining room feels open and full of natural light. The custom pink table seats eight and was inspired by a Chanel piece. Two crystal chandeliers hang above the table, adding elegance and sophistication to the fun, feminine space.
