Pastel shades are the perfect compromise between neutrals and brights and a great way to introduce a splash of colour into your home. Blue is one of the most soothing of the spectrum, so we reckon it’s the perfect choice for any room of the home. Here’s 5 tips to help you use pastel blue to lighten up your interior.
1. Colour block
Conservatory windows and doors are a great place to experiment with colour blocking, allowing you to really light up the room. Customer Naomi spruced up her conservatory with Perfect Fit blinds in a serene pastel blue.
2. Channel a gradient
The beauty of blue is that there are so many different shades. In customer Jade’s bedroom, she played with pastel shades on her bed and accessories, then ramped things up with a bold navy at the window. The result is a beautifully subtle coastal theme.
3. Choose duck egg
Duck egg blue is a natural partner to vintage schemes everywhere, but the soft shade has much wider appeal. Our Delightful Duck Egg Roller blind looks just as gorgeous in an ultra-modern kitchen as it does in a beautiful bedroom.
4. Bring in the brights
Pastels are beautiful on their own, but for added zing combine with bright shades too. Our Bauble Bluebell Roman blind makes a statement with its retro print, while the softer blues stop it from looking too bonkers.
5. Tick off stripes
Stripes and pastel blue are like strawberries and cream: they just go. So keep things effortlessly simple with our Seaside Stripe Blue fabric. If clichés aren’t your thing, ditch the lighthouses and go for subtle details on things like lampshades instead.
