As part of my journey as a designer, I thought I’d share with you some of my trend research as it is what I’ve done for a living for the last few years. In these new posts “Well Styled” I’ll be touching on some ideas that I found have been trending… feel free to send me your thoughts!
Color has been THE story of design for a while now. A strong trend that’s been coming on for home design is Pastels… it’s been big at the shows in Europe. While, I do like them right now- they feel fresh and light, I do recognize they might not work for everybody.
However, there are a few ways to do this I find particularly successful, typically it involves a strong pop color detail to create some drama, or grounded with neutrals to keep the pastels from getting too sweet. Otherwise, I think it can end up looking dated or a little too retro in “the bad way”!
To illustrate my point, I’ve pull together a few lovely examples of a softer side to color.
I can see in some of my own choices that I’ve been pinning and picking more in this iced color palette… let me know what you think?
