4 Ways to Use Pastel Colors in the Home

At Remodelista, the warm spring weather has us thinking about pastels, but we’d like to avoid a cloying overdose of them. Here is a roundup of four interiors that combine pastels with brighter colors.

Yes, I do like pastel colours, as my home is smallish, but a bright colour here and there is a nice contrast.

Looks like someone got a deal on some old Daycare chairs at an auction and put them in a big beautiful house?
