Pastel home decor for walls

Clean, chic and captivating – pastel wall colours are a big hit with modern home owners!

For years, pastels wall colours have either been considered female-oriented or more suited for children’s room interiors. Thankfully this is no longer the case. With pastels making their way into home interiors on a regular basis the possibilities are endless! People usually tend to opt for bold colours to make a statement with their interiors or opt for neutrals to paint a balanced picture, but pastels can offer you a mix of both. Check out these eight beautiful pastel colour schemes for your home interiors to make a pretty unique statement.

Pastel Wall With A Pop Of Colour

A green or a mint green pastel wall colour is one of your safest bets if you are a newbie with pastels. The colour adds a touch of freshness as well as softness to a room. It works especially well with homes that are low on natural light. Most of the space is kept minimal with the use of neutrals except for the addition of the bright sofa that perfectly complements the pastel green wall.

Pastel Pink Wall Paint

We think pastel pink wall colours are still one of the most sought-after pastel options. While pastel pink has always been a go-to colour for nurseries in modern times this shade is for any room and for every homeowner that is bold enough to pull it off! A pastel pink wall paint works fabulously if you wish to add a playful tone to your space. You can pair it with colour and texture combinations that change the way you want the room to be perceived. The use of another pastel colour and neutrals for this room helps in keeping the tone of the space chic yet minimalistic in its appeal.

There is nothing that a soothing pastel blue wall colour cannot fix! Another one of your options if you want to experiment yet play it safe with pastels. Blue is an obvious choice for a lively looking living room! Shades of blue along with a lot of soft whites breathe freshness into any space. The pop of yellow used for the particular space is a great way to break the monotony of the blues and white that are in perfect harmony with each other.

Go For A Partially Pastel Wall

It doesn’t always have to be all pastel! For smaller spaces like this one, the use of dual wall paint colours help segregate the personal corner and a cute little dining space. As you can see, a pastel pink works well with neutrals like black and white. All of these colours work well with bright yellow making the place look bright and cheerful!
