Guest Picks: Perfect Pastels for a Fresh, Feminine Room
Pastels are everywhere, and they are just in time for spring. At this time of year, I'm always craving some pinks, yellows and lavenders. Bring on spring and all of its beautiful colors! Pastels are being used by the top designers everywhere, even in kitchens. This ideabook is focused on getting you started with using these colors on a more traditional room: a feminine and calming pastel bedroom.

Ondine Lapis Blue Matelasse - $95
I love the soft blue and feminine floral in this bedding. It would make a great start to any pastel-based bedroom, whether you choose to add more color or not.
Magnolia Tree Printed Cotton Bedlinen - $300
Likewise, this pink bedding could stand alone or be mixed with soft blue to bring in more than one spring color.
Perreau Fuchsia Cushion - $140
I adore this light pink pillow in any room.
Dujardin Crocus Floral Area Rug - $1,300
This rug uses soft colors in a way that is anything but boring. You could play up the purple; however, I actually prefer the soft lavender and pinks in it.
Geo Pillow - $59.95
The bold pattern on this throw pillow is softened by its pretty color.
Fleur Tealight Holders - $9.95
Every room needs accessories, and I love these artichoke candle holders for a feminine bedroom.
Silsila Pillow, Indian Sea - $69.95
I would mix this with other patterned pillows in soft pinks, greens and purples for an interesting, feminine look.
Palmer Stool, Aquamarine - $129.95
A pop of bright color here and there can really make a room. Even mixed in with softer tones, I love this garden stool as an end table or vanity seat.
Spring Bloom Embroidered Window Panel - $69
What could say spring more than these beautiful yellow dot curtains?
Delphinium Abstract by Janice Trane Jones - $89
I love this watercolor by one talented artist on Etsy!
Starfish and Sea by Hippy House Designs - $27.99
This is a beautiful pillow. I would mix several amazing pillows like this one in all different colors on the bed.
Favorite Throw, Aruba - $29
Every great bedroom needs a soft, luxurious throw like this one.
Soft Pink and Green Floral Modern Throw Pillow by Lilypad Workshop - $18
I'd love this pillow on its own for its pattern, color and workmanship, but I would also like it with the others.
Coastal Living Cottage Night Table, Lemon Twist
The color on this piece makes it for me — that soft buttery yellow is just divine.
Carousel Bright Idea Chandelier, Lavender Shades - $578
Chandeliers in soft colors can often look childish, but this one has just the right amount of sophistication to work in an adult bedroom.
I would use this as a bedside table. I love that the green is clearly there without being too bright for a relaxing room.
Trinity Tree 7-piece Comforter Set - $72.99
If you favor blues and greens over pinks and purples, this bedding is a perfect start. I personally would add some pink and purple, but the room could also be built solely around this beautiful bedding.
Jackson Chair - $1,150
I just love the color of this modern, comfy-looking chair. In a room full of pastel colors, this shape takes away a bit of the femininity and makes for a nice contrast in styles.
Pink Pepperment Baroque Vase by Vase Candle - $18.95
How beautiful would this handmade vase be on the bedside table?
Shabby Chic Pink Vase Up-cycled Metal Container by Nor Scott - $10
I love the shabby chic rustic style of this vase. Can't you see it filled with the first spring blooms?
Green Floral Porcelain Scalloped Tea Jar Table Lamp - $184.91
