You don’t need to go for bold tones to inject some colour into your home. Pastel prints are a wonderful way of introducing gentle blushes of colour instead. Soft pinks, greys, peaches, blues, mint greens and yellows are all beautiful shades to complement your décor. Pastels are the colour of a sunrise, of rose petals, of a misty day. They can be elegant, romantic or cute - but they are always soothing. You can bring beautiful pastel art to your home by browsing our selection of art prints, from delicate watercolours to exquisite photography stills.
Create the girly bedroom of your little princess’ dreams by bringing pretty pastels to her walls. The cheerful pink birds of “Hello Darling Flamingo” are a great choice, as is the dainty pink butterfly fluttering along in “Butterfly pink”. If your girl’s bedroom has strayed away from traditional pink, you can go for other pretty pastel pictures, such as the lovably cute “Lamb watercolour” or the warm glowing yellows of fun at the fair in “Carousel Enjoyment”.
Pastel shades need not be confined to the realms of little girls’ bedrooms. Pastels can be a classy and even quirky choice. Bring a touch of serenity to your living room with the gentle dawn scene in “Quiet moments” or bring neutral grey walls to life with the cool green leaves of “Clover pattern main 01”. Pastel pictures can add some stylish romance to your bedroom as well, perhaps with an Asian-inspired cherry blossom scene like “Kihaku”, or the washed out simplicity of “Fawn”. Modern prints, such as the simple “Stripes modern watercolour” or the vibrant “Blütezeit” create pastel visual impact without fussy details and would look great in a contemporary office room.
Not all pastel posters have a contemporary feel, you can also choose from a selection of fine artworks that use pastel tones. Alberto Vargas’ sensual “Girl with angel” is a lovely example, while Gerda Wegener’s 1920’s depiction of “A Summer Day” would be a stylish addition to a bedroom or conservatory. A more traditional artwork, such as Thomas Lloyd’s “Grandmother”, with its floral garden and tranquil setting, would work well in a country-style kitchen.
Choosing the right material to complement your pastel pictures can be important. Traditional canvas is a lovely choice, while the pale tones will also work well on the more slender Forex foam boards.
