Pastel colours ruled the world of interior design during the early 1990s, and now they are finally back in fashion. We have had to wait a long time to get excited about candy pink, luscious lemon and mint green, but very few would deny that it hasn’t been worth it. Not only this, but this is a trend that is even more so great at present as pastels are widely associated with spring.
This post deals specifically with the utilisation of pastel colours in the kitchen as their use is definitely welcomed in this room in particular. One of the reasons for this is because pastels offer a fantastic way of incorporating colour into your kitchen without being too overpowering.
The soothing and soft quality of a pastel colour ensures that calm and serenity surrounds a room that can often be associated with stress. After all, cooking can be a challenge for the best of us!
If you get your colour palette right then you can easily create a retro feel. This vintage trend has always been a popular one in the kitchen. The best way to achieve this style is to go for a palette consisting of bolder pastels that are balanced out by crisp neutrals. Thus your daring pastels can consist of the likes of rose and violet, whilst neutrals such as ivory and baby blue can tame the overall impact. The result is fantastic; feminine yet with a punch of feistiness.
The great thing about adding pastels to your kitchen is the fact that you don’t need to embark on a huge redecoration process in order to do so. One effective method of implementing the trend is to merely buy a selection of sugary coloured plates, mugs, and alike. Display a selection of these around your kitchen, rather than merely putting them away in a cupboard. Alternatively you can change fabric via purchasing pastel curtains and a matching tablecloth.
So there you have it; it appears that it is not only the popular bands of the 90s that are coming back this year, as the pastel interior trend is too! So stick on some 5ive or Steps and sprinkle your kitchen with some yummy and sugary colours.
