It seems that pastels make their comeback every spring, both in fashion and interior design, and we can't complain! Pastel color schemes make interiors both – soothing and fun. Pastels are like a colorful version of neutrals – not as loud and bold as the bright colors – that's why they work so well in interior design and match different styles and themes. And still – pastels represent playfulness, fun and are like a grown-up version of colorful interiors. How come you do not love them? No wonder the Danish Pastels interior design aesthetic is becoming more and more popular – light and cheerful pastel colors combined with a Scandi balance of clean-lined silhouettes and organic, curved lines are just so pleasing to the eye.
We've put together three pastel interiors inspiration mood boards with wallpaper designs from our new Danish Pastels Wallpaper Collection to embrace the Danish way of design and living – keeping it minimal while still colorful and full of joy.
Pastel colors are perfect for nursery interiors – they allow to create a calming setting for a new baby. And this pastel's nursery interior is just that – a cloud of calm, Scandinavian simplicity and sweetness.
Trending Candy Terrazzo Design Removable Wallpaper in soft pastels is not only eye candy but also a practical choice for nursery interiors because it's gender-neutral and versatile enough to grow together with your child. Designed for modern families portable Origami Mini Crib in light green pastels is minimalistic and matches the subtle nursery design. With its compact size, flowing silhouette, and soft sheepskin upholstery iconic Little Petra lounge chair will be a cozy and dreamy addition to the nursery. Little Petra's simple, organic appearance is a lovable example of the Danish funkis style of the 1930s. Tufted Basket in light sage is another soft, cozy, and practical addition to the room. Round shapes suit nurseries – that's why we've chosen the Petit Palais side table in pink pastels. It continues the pastels theme and is a prime example of modern Scandinavian simplicity which also has an air of luxury and elegance – same as the iconic Flowerpot VP7 pendant in beige. The joyful Flowerpot lamp was inspired by peace, love, and the Flower Power era of the 60s. Retro-inspired Once Upon A Dream Wall Art will be a cute addition to the nursery's dreamy pastels theme just like the Safari Cushion - Lion – for lovely comfort at naptime.
