Guest Picks: Pale Pastels for Your Spring Home
Spring ushers in a wave of soft colors to the outdoors. Bring a dose of that same freshness indoors and create a welcoming spring feeling in your home. This collection of home decor choices is inspired by the first lovely pale pastels of spring. — Darlene from Fieldstone Hill Design
Pink Elephant Hand-Painted Pillow - $200
I cannot say how much I adore this pink elephant pillow! It is sophisticated, light-hearted and beautiful all at the same time. Since each pillow is hand-crafted, no two are exactly alike.
Sea Glass Ball Table Lamp - $388
I like the soft touch of sea glass for a perfect touch of pastel. This table lamp would look fantastic in pairs at both ends of a richly colored sofa.
Paper Flower Bouquet, Petite Pastels by Flighty Fleurs - $22.40
Bring spring right into your house with this whimsical collection of paper flowers. These 30 stems make up a perfect bouquet and will bridge the gap between lilacs and tulips. And the best part: No water required.
Persimmon Paint - $45
Not much of a pastel person? This warm persimmon paint is the perfect pale orange backdrop. Because of the complexity of warm and cool pigments, this particular orange can function like a neutral, working with brights as well as pastels.
Polkamania Green/White Poly Acrylic Hook Rug - $170
Don't fear pale mint underfoot. I love the polka dot fun found on this rug, and I think it would make an awesome addition to a nursery, or any room in need of something light-hearted.
Flame Leaf Bowl, Yellow - $16
Bring spring to your table with this yellow stoneware bowl. It is both decorative and functional, as it is dishwasher and microwave safe. I think it would look lovely filled with a chilled mint-pea soup.
Fluffed & Flaunting Pillow, Blue - $98
Pastel does not have to mean prissy. I love this pale aqua Mongolian sheep pillow cover. To me, it is the perfect dose of fun. Toss a pair on your sofa if your space is starting to look too serious.
Bungalow 5 Melrose Table Lamp Base, Pink - $481
Pale pink is such a classy color right now. It is showing up in even the most sophisticated of living spaces. I love this Melrose table lamp base in pink. And the gold accents take the classiness up another notch.
Ollie the Elephant, Mint by Mahzer & Vee - $47
I love this mint elephant statue. It might be obvious to use this happy guy as decor in a nursery or a child's room, but I would love to see him in a living room or library. I picture him sitting happily on a stylish navy blue bookshelf.
Crystal Octagon Knob, Pink - $8
Don't let your cabinetry be dull! I love the idea of colorful knobs on a fun desk or kitchen cabinetry. For the perfect pastel punctuation, I think these pink crystal knobs fit the bill.
DL Rhein Hexagon Lilac Pillow - $110
This lovely lilac honeycomb pillow is soft and sophisticated. The muted tones make it perfect for bridging the gap between the coolness of winter and the brightness of spring. Plus, the muted gray-lilac is one of my favorite pastels this season.
Rosanna Bowls - $60
Casual and fun, these Rosanna bowls have a generous depth for slurping. They come in assorted pale pastels for an instant spring table.
Worlds Away Hampton Turquoise Bar Cart - $963
Bar carts are such a fantastic home decor choice because they are versatile, practical and glamorous. This particular pale turquoise cart is powder coated for indoor or outdoor entertaining.
Coco Chandelier - $1,800
The Coco chandelier is a showstopping piece made with strands of rose quartz and brass hardware. This splurge for your space is a surefire attention-getter, even in its soft color. I would use two of these over twin beds in a girls' room or guest room.
Pastel Stripes Wooden Spoons or Forks Party by Tulle & Twig - $8
Bring in spring with a party! Make it pastel themed — and don't forget to be ecofriendly. This pastel flatware is made with biodegradable wood and will brighten up any gathering. I think I would even use it with just the family to celebrate those first days we get to eat outdoors again.
Fleur-De-Lis Juice Glass, Lavender - $6
A spring breakfast would be lovely with freshly squeezed juice and pale purple glasses. I think it would be fun to keep these in the rotation and use them to add color to the table throughout spring and summer.
Trina Turk Pillow Embroidered Linen Greek Key Pillow, Acid Yellow - $110
For the perfect touch of soft sunny yellow, toss a pair of these embroidered Greek key pillows onto your bed or sofa. I think they would also look fantastic in a sunroom, or even bring them onto your outdoor patio.
Cotton/Linen Tea Towel, Melon Dot by Printing Grounds - $16
I love these cotton/linen kitchen towels with an energetic pale melon dot pattern. They will instantly bring character into your kitchen, and who couldn't use a new set of kitchen towels?
Jonathan Adler Bridget Light Blue/Natural Rug - $145
Bring spring right under your step with Jonathan Adler's Bridget rug in light blue and white. I think that the soft pastels would look fabulous paired with richer tones, such as chocolate or navy.
Pink Moroccan Leather Pouf - $450
I love this pastel pink Moroccan leather pouf — it is as cute as a button. And it's practical too, as it can be used for several purposes: as a footstool, as extra seating or as a place for a little one to put on their shoes.
