Pastel Pretty

Andrea MaaseideComment

Maybe it's because Easter is just around the corner.  I have pastels on the mind.  There's something really beautiful about a room done in pastels.  And I'm not talking about Grandma's pastel room with doilies on every surface and plastic covers when the furniture isn't in use.  Using a pastel palette in the right way can actually be really cool.  

 Look at all of these pastels!  I actually want to hang out in this space...not run screaming from the room.  And I love the wall treatment.  {Via Lonny}

 Rock and roll vibe here.  A touch of black and white keeps it from going too Grandma.  {Via  Domaine Home }

 Who knew lavender could be so beautiful on doors?  And perfect with the soft blue chair. And can I just say how much I love that floor and that railing?!?!?  {Via  Habitually Stylish }
