Nowadays pastel colors have been on top, both in the area if street fashion style and the interior design industry – it seems that they won’t go out fashion yet. In the field of interior design they are a must in small spaces, making them more cozy and intimate, converting surfaces of walls into soft and velveteen. As pastels are easy to juxtapose with modern furniture and accessories, they appear in paint palette catalogs of many producers. At PIXERS they dominate wall mural design.
Set of geometric patterns in pastel colors is highly recommended particularly to bedrooms and living rooms, where serene hues will create an atmosphere of calmness and relax. What’s more, they are an essence of Summer for us. Such wall murals are also an alternative for white paint, favorite color of minimalism-lovers. Pastel geometry will produce a real modernist “feeling” – especially when placed together with iconic designs of Verner Panton, Eero Saarinen, Eames Brothers or Arne Jacobsen.

And who says recessed living areas need to be indoors? Your outdoor space can benefit just as much from sunken seating, as evidenced by this elegant, stone-lined patio by Dean Herald-Rolling Stone Landscapes. And for one final dose of sunken living room eye candy, feast your eyes on this over-the-top living area by Chris Barrett Designs. The former estate of Johnny Carson features giant windows overlooking a cliff in Malibu, so it’s no wonder a safe and plush sunken sofa was added to ground the space.
We now turn to top design bloggers such as Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, who has decorated her kitchen shelving with an array of pastel dishware. Don’t be afraid to mix function and style when it comes to your decorative shelves. Put useful items on display, but arrange them artfully. If the shelving is purely decorative, choose pieces carefully. Be selective, as this gives your shelves a curated, artful look, as shown by this DIY hoop shelf from A Beautiful Mess.
