Punchy pastel paint colours are a current trend in interior design and like a lot of fads, they can march out as fast as they rushed in. If you like your rooms to have broad appeal then muted pastels may be a little easier to live with. The trick is to start with the true pastel hue and grey it down, down, down, until it implies the colour rather than shouts it out.
The wall in this sitting room is painted in a warm, muted coral hue that harmonizes with the cushion covers and the rug.
The muted blue pastel colours used in the painting are a perfect foil for the earthier blue used on the dining chairs and wall paint.
I am loving the muted grey hue wall and bedding. The delicate pink colour of the quilt cover and bed cushions are in happy harmony with the copper lighting and side table. This bedroom has a young but sophisticated feeling.
This elegant and refined sitting room shows us how creamy whites, gold accents and warm beige can work so well with restrained pastel pink and turquoise.
