Styling Inspo: Breezy Summer Pastels

With summer on the horizon we were inspired by a breezy palette evocative of warm sandy beaches, clear blue waters and soft pink seashells.

To achieve this look, base your colour palette around a piece of artwork with washed out pastel colouring such as this Faded Hillside framed print we found by Middle of Nowhere. Give a beachy natural feel to the space with raw-look textured flooring (and maybe even a feature wall) such as our Classique La Grange French Oak planks. Add to the feeling of calm with wall colours in white and if you're feeling playful add a feature wall in pastel pink. Keep to minimalist Scandinavian-style furniture in neutral fabric colours, with the exception of a statement pastel piece such as this pale blue couch from Freedom. Add cushions in contrasting pastel hues and layer a natural fibre rug over your timber floor for an interesting play on textures. Accessorize with materials in white metal, ceramic, terrazzo, marble and the odd hint of brass. Finally - don't forget to add plants for a dose of greenery! P.S. Floaty floor-length sheer curtains would go perfectly with this look!
