Spruce Up Your Interior Painting With Pastels

Interior Painting Tips Using Pastels

Whether you want to get a jump on summer trends or follow springtime traditions, pastels are the perfect addition to your color scheme or interior painting project. These pale palettes can add a relaxing feel to any room, as well as open up a world of decorating opportunity with accents and furniture.

Bedroom

Bedroom Interior Paint Recommendations

You want your sleeping space to be cozy and soothing, so pastels are a natural color choice for bedrooms. Popular for nurseries, these paint tones can bridge the gap between kids’ rooms and adult living spaces if done correctly.

Light colors allow for freedom with linens - whites, beiges, grays and other colors can be seamlessly worked into the room without contrasting with the walls and decor.

Kitchen

Kitchen Interior Paint Color Ideas

Though sprucing up the walls with a fresh coat of pastel yellow paint like Benjamin Moore Pineapple Grove (color code 333) can instantly brighten your kitchen, don’t ignore other aspects of the room. Pastel appliances, chairs and other elements can take an otherwise bland room and make it an enjoyable space with style and function. Likewise, painting kitchen cabinets is often an inexpensive option for giving your kitchen a fresh, updated look.

Living Room

Painting Tips for your Living Room

Pastels are versatile - they don’t need to keep a modern theme. If you’re feeling vintage, work some yellows and greens into your living room to compliment wood floors and beige furnishings.

Not into the throwback look? Keep pastels in mind as an alternative to safe tans and creams. They aren’t going to distract from the room in the way a bold, bright accent wall might, but they’ll give you a more personalized, individual look that will guide the rest of your decorating decisions.

Bathroom

Interior Painting for Bathroom Walls and Ceilings

Your time in the bathroom should be calming and relaxed, so create a light, airy theme or a beachy look with pastels. Walls and ceilings shouldn’t be ignored, but this look can be achieved with towels, stylish rugs and small decor pieces in an otherwise bright, white space.
