Pastels can work well in your child's room. Consider having white walls and pastels as accent colors. Choose soft furnishings in pink, yellow, and Tiffany Blue. You can also have wall decor and furniture in the same hues.

Welcome guests into your space and make them feel right at home! Liven up a gray or plain sofa with colorful pillows and throws. Got a plain wall? Display framed photos, prints, and artwork! As much as possible, go for pieces with vibrant colors and use white frames.

Bright, cozy, and relaxing—this may just be the perfect peg for your next room makeover! Create a summer vibe by sprucing up the walls with bold and colorful pieces. Add a potted plant for a refreshing touch of green and choose decor pieces in vibrant yellow shades. Complete the look with light-colored sheets and a unique area rug.

If you're not yet sure if pastels can work in your home, you can test it in one area first. Turn an unused corner or room into a bright storage station filled with pastel-colored accessories. Paint one wall with a light shade to make the accessories pop.

You can never go wrong with just a few pieces when experimenting with a new look. If you have white as a dominant color in the living area, you can easily transform the space into a relaxing haven where you can entertain guests and friends. Make it inviting by adding pastel throw pillows, floor cushions, and a printed area rug.
