understated and rather unexpected color pairings like pale pink and mint green, mauve, coral — whatever you prefer to call it, i’m seeing these pretty pastels jewel tones popping up everywhere. from fashionistas to fainting sofas, these faded shades would appear to be very en vogue. shades of the palest pink and coral really complement soft hues of gray-green and mint, and throwing in a sneaky small hint of hot pink they make a very soothing, and yet modern, bold, and very dramatic decor statement. if you wanna get the look simply swap out your current pillow cushions or even an area rug and add some clear tinted candle votives — or go all out with a fabulous pink platform bed. this week’s color story is all about this trending color palette and lovely understated jewel-toned pastels.
