Embracing Summer Vibes: 25 Bedrooms Filled with Soft Pastel Beauty

It is easy to fall in love with charm and cozy presence of summer; especially if you live in a region of the world with cold winters and a moderate summer. It is a time when you want to step outside the confines of the four walls, go beyond the colors of spring and spend a few lazy evenings on the pool deck or lazing on the beach as you soak in the sun. But, even after a long day outside, inevitably you want to come home to the comfort of your relaxing bedroom. And bringing in a bit summer charm into the bedroom is the perfect way to usher in freshness and cheerful allure.

Few colors fit in with the vibrant summer theme as pastel hues. Pastels create that perfect balance between color and a soothing relaxing vibe and do so without ever seeming out of place. You will never miss the tranquil serenity of neutral hues and yet pastels still fill the room with brightness and sunny zest. Sure, pastels can feel a touch feminine at times, but there are ways in which they work well in contemporary, traditional and even minimal bedrooms. It is all about visual balance and elegance; something that the bedrooms below have aplenty. Enjoy!

Effervescence of Pink

Pastel pinks are a hit in the girls’ room irrespective of the season and current trends. But this summer they would make a great addition in the adult bedroom as well. You need not worry about pink pastels being a bit too feminine as balancing them with white, gray and other muted hues gives the bedroom a modern shabby chic vibe that is largely gender neutral. If you are worried about too much pink in the room, then start small with bedding, accent pillows or vases in pastel pink. Once you are comfortable with the hue, think about larger additions like a plush rug or accent wall covered in pastel pink power!

Perennially Popular Blue

Blue as a color is incredibly popular in both adult and kids’ bedrooms and it works with a wide range of themes and decorating styles. Offering the same adaptability even while crafting a neutral backdrop that allows accent additions to shine through, pastel blues offer the best of both worlds. They feel elegant, relaxing and stylish. Yet, you can combine a pastel blue backdrop with any bright secondary color in the room and over time, changing this secondary color can alter the ambiance of the room with ease. With pastel blues, you can simply never go wrong!

Mild Green Goodness!

Green in pastel hues is much rare than blue and pink and the many shades often used tend to venture into the bluish-green color range. Yet, delicate pastel greens remind us of nature at its elegant best and surely offer the bedroom an appeal unlike any other color. Since one normally would not come across pastel green hues, it makes the bedroom all the more special. From beige and blue to pink and purple, you can mix and match pretty much any color with pastel green tones.

Shades of Yellow

It is hard to find a color more cheerful and sunny than yellow! This makes it the perfect hue to give the bedroom summer freshness and joy without ever seeming out of place. With pastel yellow colors, we suggest opting for darker rather than lighter shades as they feel far more effective and elegant. With a lighter pastel yellow hue, the room can feel dull and uninspired once natural light fades away. On the other hand, dark pastel yellows appear lively and smart even under artificial lighting.
