Looking for an excuse to prepare for spring? Then maybe you’ll want to look into adding pastels to your décor style. But don’t feel limited to muted pinks and faded blues. Designers are rethinking pastels. A new trend is earthy pastels.
These are colors that take their tones from nature. That might mean highly muted pinks, light naturalistic greens and lavenders that are closer in shade to the actual flower. Another hallmark of earthy pastels is to combine them with earthy, light neutrals, like natural sand shades, slate greys and light browns.
The photo above gives a good look at how an earthy pastel look might take shape. The textured, muted pink looks almost sandy in texture. Wood pieces and plants give a more earthy look. Slate grey marks the rug.
