Pastels Candles

with pastel candy and decorated eggs and spring flowers Pastels eggs and flowers and sweet little bunnies (how cute are these from the Etsy shop Fairyfolk…)Pastels Bunnies by Fairyfolk and oh, did I mention handmade pastel soaps from the Charming Frog? (who has the time to do all this stuff?!)Pastels Bunny Soaps by The Charming Frog Etsy that I would be sick of pastels-any pastels. But in truth, pastels can be the perfect palette for a dreamy bedroom…and not just for baby rooms! This stunner in lavenders by Tara Dudley Interiors would be a perfectly restful retreat.

Or how about an entire pastel palette of spoons from The House That Lars Built? These would be great in an old crock or as an art display.

But a pastel palette doesn’t have to scream country style. An ocean-side home calls for the hues of the water, sand and sky. This kitchen from Plato Woodwork, has neutral white cabinetry set off with contemporary blue tiles and countertops that draw your eye to the window and the fabulous ocean views.

Using pastels in your living space can be funky or fun, and adding pops of bright colors can keep it fresh and young! Have a pretty perfect Tuesday, everyone! Susan
