Decor Inspiration: Pretty Pastels

(Photos via Style at Home)

Pastels definitely belong to my favorite color palette. They are the perfect choice for your home décor: soft, elegant and chic, and they can be easily combined not only together, but with some bright and vivid hues (like magenta, bright blue or kelly green) as well. Here are a few examples of the decorative power of pastels.



Stylish office supplies, a real phone and a beautiful table lamp add a glamorous touch to your working space. And soft pink and dove gray colors look so amazing together!


I love just about everything about this space: vintage chest of drawers used as a TV stool, white Billy bookcases lined with patterned wallpaper, original bookcase styling, a piece of art that prevents the TV from being the focal point of the space.


This space has "feminine" written all over itself: an ornate silver mirror for a touch of luxe, vintage lamp with a blush pink shade for a girly factor, matching cups and trays to hold the beauty essentials. 


White Stockholm sofa from Ikea is accessorized with cheerful throw pillows and the glass table is modern and airy (perfect for small space).


A perfect masculine space: black mirror, patterned tray and a vintage briefcase and globe read as classy and chic.


The chest of drawers transformed into a party focal space: a tray with drinks and glasses allows the guests to move around and have fun.
