Some might say it goes against common wisdom but we like to think pastel shades aren't just for nurseries and girls' bedrooms. After all, there are no rules to using color—as long as you're happy when you look at your space, you're good to go. If you've been thinking about using sweeter shades around your home, we've put together a few pegs that will surely satisfy your design upgrade craving:

If blue isn't your favorite calming color, you can try going for a tranquil mint or pistachio green instead. It strikes your attention without making you squint, therefore, it qualifies as a restful shade—a great choice for the home office especially when you need a cooling break from beating work deadlines.

For those who like colors from the warmer end of the spectrum, a bright lemon yellow might suit your work area better. It can lift your spirits and boost your energy when you're feeling too tired to finish the tasks at hand. As an added bonus, it can make a study nook look larger than it really is, too!

A tinge lighter than red, a dusty pink reminiscent of milky strawberries can create the perfect ambience for long conversations over shared meals. This color also represents compassion, nurturing, and love—making it the perfect pick for the dining area.

Is summer your favorite season, too? Paint your walls a fruity melon for a tropics-inspired space! While colors with hints of orange aren't usually used for bedrooms, this particular shade can evoke the feeling of comfort and warmth which is what you need in a sleeping space.

This bubble gum-inspired teal is probably the most fun option from this bunch! Although it is considered as a fun shade, the hints of blue in this color can stimulate the mind, aid concentration, and is essentially soothing so you can use it in spaces for rest and recreation.
