Be Inspired : Pastel Geo!

Pastel-Geo-BE-INSPIRED-e1399968606414-min

As the new season approaches and the weather becomes a smidgen warmer, colour palette trends will always change, this year catwalks are filled with an abundance of pastel shades, candy pop tones and soft summer colours. This look doesn’t just stop at fashion, interiors follow trends too and already this year we’re seeing the pastel trend creeping through to the world of interiors.

Mixing in with this palette creating a modernist aspect is the element of pattern, particularly geometric designs. We’re seeing a lot of geometric wall features, bedlinen and soft furnishing rocking this design on the high street.

ExCel London’s Grand Designs Live Exhibition showcased the same look in their room-sets this year, featuring geometric inspired accent walls and pastel toned accessories with muted greys. Pops of lemon and and vibrant pink broke up the paler shades creating a funky styled home.

This trend is not for the faint hearted, it involves a lot of bold blocks of colour, vibrant patterns and unusual shapes. It is however perfect to accessorise, once you have your initial colour choice which should consist of colours from the pastel spectrum, such as coral pinks, pale blues, lemon yellows, mint greens and lilacs, just choose a main colour and add accessorise in the same tone. We’re seeing a lot of heavily patterned geometric wallpaper prints available at the moment. Sian Elin’s Tress Multi collection features a multitude of pastel colours from baby pinks and turquoise blues, for a more subtle colour scheme this design is also available in a muted grey and white. Graham & Brown offer several geometric styles too.

However the only way to get a unique design is to do it yourself. This is a simple technique involving measuring tools, a steady hand and 3 or 4 small pots of different coloured pastel paints. Section off areas in a triangular shape and colour each section in a different shade, this is a great idea for chimney breasts and bed headboards.

To compliment your Pastel-geo prints try to keep to modern accessories, lighting should be sleek and arty, think oversized Floor lamps, edge table lamps and origami and spirograph styled ceiling shades. Opt for chrome or white finishes but if you want to include colour then just make sure to keep to the pastel range. Pastel-geo doesn’t always have to be an overload of colour and pattern, for a safer option start off with a white base and then just add accents of pastel and geo such as bedding, scatter cushions or lighting.

To help you recreate this look using our products and for more inspiration we’ve pulled together a look book.
