Overview

Pastels are enjoying an exciting comeback. Forget the sugary pinks of little girls' bedrooms, today, pastels pack plenty of personality. The best of the bunch have a rich intensity or a subtle sophistication, keeping them the cool side of sweet. They allow you to fill your home with colour, without splashing statement brights around, and they bring a warmth and softness to a room. In Pretty Pastel Style, stylist Selina Lake shows you how to use this truly versatile colour palette to create beautiful spaces that are feminine without being girlie; colour-rich without being garish. The book first walks you through the Elements of the look. Modern Pastels are contrasted with pops of stronger shades and sharpened with statement furniture. Vintage Pastels plunder the past, taking from it smoky pinks, faded greens and elegant patterns. Retro Pastels cheerfully channel the ice-cream shades of the Fifties on candy stripes, polka dots and cute floral prints, while Simple Pastels work with off-whites for an elegantly minimal take on pretty pastel style. Next, Details looks at everything from furniture and lighting, to display and decoration, with inspiring ideas on how to piece the style together. Finally, head to the Spaces section of the book to see beautiful rooms that have used pastels with super-stylish effect.
