20+ Cute Pastel Living Room Design Ideas That You Should Have
Although pastels might not immediately come to mind when considering living room wall colors, they can actually be used quite effectively. Light wall colors such as pastels can be an especially good choice in a small living room, since they can make the room seem larger than it really is. Although you might not want to paint your living room “baby boy blue” or “baby girl pink,” there are plenty of other pastel shades that can really shine as part of your decor. Here are some decorating tips you can use to add a beautiful touch of pastel to your living room.
If you want to add a subtle retro look to your room, a pastel shade can be the perfect wall color choice. Pale green or light yellow can add a sunny bright look that will provide the perfect backdrop for fun retro furniture choices. Light blue walls can work well to add a soft country look, while pastel lavender will add a hint of romance. Once you’ve selected a light pastel shade for the walls, you can choose darker shades of the same color for your decorating accessories and furniture pieces. Or, accessorize the room with coordinating or contrasting pastel shade. For example, a light green and pastel yellow pinstriped sofa could add the perfect coordinating look to a living room with light yellow walls.
