I love pastel shades. At the same time soft, comforting and luminous, I find that they offer beautiful bucolic notes to every interior. In addition, depending on the other colors, materials, textures and volumes associated, the pastel kitchen transforms the universe of a room at a glance. Indeed, pearl gray and curvature for a Scandinavian effect or black metal, copper and brick for an industrial atmosphere, pastel lends itself to every desire. It counterbalances the other colors and thus harmonizes the entire interior decoration.
So between vintage, Californian, Scandinavian, country or industrial atmospheres, come and discover the wonders of pastel decor in the kitchen.
1. Fresh and vegetal look
Once the painted walls option has been selected, it is now time to choose between plain tones or combination of tones. By opting for colored walls, then prefer accessories and furniture in neutral and natural tones in order to balance everything. The soft colors will thus further enhance the pastel walls.
Here is a first example perfectly illustrating the above remarks. The jade green, mint green, sea green or celadon green are green shades pastel bright. They diffuse a sublime burst of freshness in all the rooms. In addition, with the help of its soft hues, the color lends itself to any room. Bedroom, living room or kitchen, each space is entitled to its little touch of freshness. I love this first kitchen. The natural light is wonderfully reflected on the white walls and sea green furniture. Finally, the decorators opted for a wooded floor and worktops. Both luminous and minimalist, the interior decoration thus closely resembles the Scandinavian style.
2. A trendy and bucolic look for a pastel kitchen
In addition, the second flagship color, pastel pink, powder pink or even blush pink, are iconic in pastel cuisine. They bring a soft, bucolic and romantic atmosphere. For more authenticity and originality, there are multiple tile imitations. In the form of repositionable wallpaper or vinyl, the splashback adds more subtlety and texture to a room. Here, I find that the rendering is very successful. The geometric wallpaper, the retro kitchen utensils as well as the wooden parquet plunge us into a light and poetic atmosphere.
3. Bring some pep to your interior
Finally, less common than pink, green or pastel blue, yellow is also part of the palette. Unlike other colors, yellow will offer a more sparkling and summery look. The idea is then to dress part of a wall or furniture in this shade in order to make your interior shine. Then, it’s up to you to measure and juggle the different shades of yellow.
4. Mix the nuances for a sparkling cuisine
In addition to the solid colors, the mixtures are just as ideal. However, be careful to respect the golden rule of decoration: no more than three colors per room. Yes, be sure to balance the colors well to avoid the carnival atmosphere. So, for a subtle harmony, adopt neutral and natural furniture, such as wood for example. In terms of association, one of the most common is pink and pastel green or even pink and blue. Then it’s up to you to select the wedding that suits you best. Blue and pink, being more flashy and imposing, are perfectly suited to a pastel kitchen in search of singularity.
Unlike the union of pink and blue, green and pastel pink are much more discreet. Indeed, the tones blend more into the environment, thus offering a more sober and elegant look, while adding a touch of exoticism.
5. A pastel kitchen with bright accessories
Now let’s move on to a slightly more different decor. Instead of repainting the walls or changing your furniture, it is possible to give your kitchen a makeover by simply adding a few accessories. Indeed, carrying out work can take time. Therefore, if you have a neutral white kitchen, in this case you can bring pastel-colored utensils. Arranged here and there, they will immediately give life to your new pastel kitchen.
6. A flagship color for a unique kitchen
As we have seen previously, you have the choice to opt for a flagship color or to mix several, for a more Californian effect. Trendy retro, country, Scandinavian or industrial, polish your decor using pastel utensils. They will bring a little pep.
7. Merge the colors for a Californian atmosphere
The association of colors in the decorative elements. Here, as we opt for color in the accessories, the rule of three colors is relaxed. Indeed, by playing between trends, colors and materials, the accessories will appear like small blooming flowers. These colorful and vitamin notes will wonderfully illuminate your interior. These colorful notes will also help break the monotony and lividity of a room.
