The pastel color palette is often overlooked because the delicate pale shades are not as salient as the strong, energetic colors. Due to the gentle sensibility, they are often replaced by stronger, dominant tones, serving mainly as an option for children’s rooms which suit the children’s spirit.
But the designers and architects are bringing back the gentle pastel tones in other parts of the home as well as in commercial interiors. If properly used in the design, they can bring freshness and relaxation in the interiors without fear that the colors may create too delicate, feminine or nursery settings.
Instead of using one pastel shade that would result in a uniform pale interior, designers began to balance the pastel colors with white or highlight them using black or darker gray with contemporary décor with clean lines to put more energy in the pastel combinations.
