Home Decor Pastels and Neutrals


Home Decor Pastels and Neutrals – About a month or so ago I wrote a post about decorating your office (post here) which was pretty girly and colourful but you all LOVED it and even though I said I would write more about interior decoration, I haven’t really kept up with it!

I have a little addiction with Pinterest especially when it comes to inspiration for home decor and as soon as I spotted this picture above, fell in love with how pretty the room is!

You don’t need to spend a fortune to change your home – all you need is some paint, imagination and of course looking around for the best buys when it comes to your accessories!

Check out some of my picks below! 🙂

Crystal Chandelier


Coffee Table

Amethyst Rug

I’d keep the wall colour very similar to the picture above and maybe a touch lighter if the room is small!

In regards to the cushions I’d also throw in a couple of deep purple tones just to add depth and variety to the room and I would co-ordinate the rug to be a similar purple too – if your furniture is white and most of your cushions are white I think it would be lovely to have that little bit of contrast with the purple.

Ah – interior decorating…..I do love it! 🙂

Let me know what you all think! Is this something that you would go for or do you prefer the minimal/clean/sharp look?

    Pastels and neutrals create such a calm and relaxing environment, whether it’s a living room or a bedroom!

    I love interior decorating too. Our house is pretty minimal with clean lines. I definitely like to keep things pretty neutral with any color coming from accents that can be changed. Love the photo you picked above!

    hi! I share your addiction with pinterest! It is definitely my go to for any inspiration! This little corner looks so pretty and comfortable, its stunning, but I live with my boyfriend and can’t imagine him agreeing on all that pastel and pink 🙁 and yes, it take creativity and some imagination to make the best of your home, makes it more personal as well!

    Such a lovely post! I used to really like pastel colours, but atm I am more into the minimalistic look. I am also obsessed with copper things. They are just so pretty haha!

    I really love that minimal look when it comes to interior! And I like to play with decorations to make a room look more intersting! Flea markets are a great opportunity to find pieces with a personal touch (story)! Beautiful and fresh colors on that photo! 😉

      Ahhhh I am so happy you like this!! I understand what you mean, it cane be a pain at times as you don’t know what to do but you could do the minimal / cosy thing – a couple of cushions, throws and some nice decorative pieces here and there! 🙂 xxx

    I love this look! It’s funny how as soon as you hit your twenties you get a sudden interest in home decor and furniture etc..or at least that’s what happened with me! Pastels and light colours get a big yes from me 🙂

    My husband and I thought of decorating the house pastels and neutrals but decided against it in the end. I mean can you imagine a little one with white? It’s stuff made of nightmare. LOL!
