Trend alert: Pastel colors

Light purple drapes are right on trend.

Light purple drapes are right on trend.

Pale pink may be the color of cotton candy, but it can also be a sweet treat for your home. Once used solely for baby nurseries, pastel colors have recently been given a mature makeover. Take a look at some helpful tips to make your pastel room pretty and polished.

  • Added vibrancy: To take your room from drab to fab, add a dose of vibrancy to the mix of pastels. For instance, if you have a pale purple love seat, jazz it up with bright purple throw pillows in the shade of Radiant Orchid. Or, if your wall is light yellow, add a pop of pizzazz with brighter curtains and drapes.
  • Fresh coats of paint: Paint isn't just for your walls. To give an old furniture piece a modern look, simply go to your local paint store and choose from a selection of baby blues, light lavenders or pale pinks. Use your imagination when painting vanities, end tables and even chairs.
  • Modern patterns: Geometric shapes or florals can add visual harmony to your living room. Try selecting patterned window coverings or throw rugs to your living room. 
  • Sophisticated shades: "Pastels with a bit of gray or brown, like spearmint, make especially serene wall colors," writes Houzz.com contributor Laura Gaskill. "For a seamless look, paint the trim to match the walls instead of making them standard-issue white."
