11. Give pretty pastels some tough love. An easy way to toughen up soft pastels is to throw some raw, edgy materials into the mix — think industrial finishes such as concrete, steel, exposed brick and timber. For a look that’s more sophisticated, pair powder hues with sleek materials such as natural stone, glass and gleaming metallic surfaces, while rustic touches such as distressed leather, cowhide and reclaimed wood will infuse any space decorated in pale tones with a cool, earthy and eclectic vibe.
