I'm not sure if it's because Radiant Orchid is the Pantone Color of the Year or if it's the transition to warmer weather but has anyone else noticed the huge resurgence of pastel home decor? These days, soft hued accents have become super chic rather than 1980s faux pas. (Think Kelly Wearstler rather then Miami Vice.) The key to keeping these rooms interesting and current is the variance of textures. Each of the images above features a mix of crisp flat weave, soft velvet, shiny lacquer and marble, metal and/or wood. Even the folks at Bravo TV have gotten in on the action with their promo shot of "Ladies of London!"
If it's good enough for the Brits, it's good enough for me!
So tell me- Are you into the pastel living room look? Or do you need a little more excitement in your surroundings?
