If it does, then build up slowly in layers to add more and more of the key colours into your existing scheme. You don’t have to decorate the whole space. It’s more about adding rainbow décor details that work within your existing room scheme.
When creating a show stopping interior inspired this modern pastel trend, think about all the little details in your bedroom. For example, I wallpapered my walls first in this coral pink paper, then I added the rug on the floor. I felt the room was missing something, so I painted one wall in a feature colour for a splash of colour. I’m still adding and mixing in these colours as my mood takes me! Why don’t you do the same?
Start by decorating your room with an elegant wallpaper, put down a cosy rug, hang vintage style artwork and choose modern lighting. Or even a vase of flowers in these soft colours. Take a look at Sola Wood Flowers who sell faux stems (and wedding bouquets) that will stand the test of time.

But interior designer and stylist have decided to create a new look for 2022 giving it a modern and contemporary feel. It’s about adding these tones in blocks of colour for a fresh style and teaming with simple furniture and accessories.

If you want a bolder, more dramatic look then pair the modern pastel trend with navy blue, turquoise and mustard into your room bringing this look bang-up to date.
In my bedroom, the pastel colours complement my dark navy fitted wardrobes, adding warmth to this room. The tones also sit well next to my linen bed giving my bedroom hotel-vibes!
3. Add the pastel trend with Patterns & Texture
Fresh pastel tones will add depth to your colour scheme when combined with bolder patterns and colours.
If you love patterns they why not dress your bed in dotty pastel prints! The contrast of this bold design emits a fresh and funky feel in your bedroom. It looks and feels youthful.
In my own bedroom, I coupled this baby blue polka bedding with teals, pinks, and a splash of ochre with my cushions, bringing this interior together. As you can see, I’ve fully embraced the pastel trend.
For a chic look, modern pastels look fabulous with natural accessories like rattan, wood or even wicker. These natural textured elements will give your bedroom and warm and cosy feel.
