Pastels. What do you feel when you read this word? I immediately feel soothed, relaxed and calmed down. If you do too, I’d recommend to incorporate pastels into your home decor to surround yourself with them and feel at ease at home. Besides having such a great psychological effect, pastels are timeless and can be incorporated into almost any decor style of any epoch. Though pastels aren’t a popular choice for bathrooms, pastels there can help you relax taking a shower or a bath after a long day, and such a reason is enough to make your bathroom a pastel one. Here are some inspiring ideas that will make you think about it!

What Pastels To Choose?
If you hesitate over pastel shades to try, go for pastel blue and pink tones of any intensity, they will always work, especially blue, a sea color that is great for any bathrooms, especially for coastal and seaside ones. Pastel green and its shades is another popular idea for bathrooms as green and aqua shades are associated with ocean. You may also try pastel yellow and lilac tones if you want something special and unusual for bathrooms. Using only one or two pastel shades or playing with a whole color palette is up to you and the effect you want to create. Pair up your pastels with brass and gold for a chic look, with black for drama and with white or creamy shades for a fresh touch.

How To Integrate Pastels Into Home Decor?
A pastel tile accent wall is a perfect solution for your shower or bath nook, and if you are ready to dive into pastels, make all the walls like that. Besides using tiles, you may opt for painting your walls, paneling them and adding wallpaper to them. Consider having pastel appliances for a bold look (match them with the walls for a more cohesive look) or going for a pastel vanity and a mirror in a matching frame. the last but not least are accessories and decor: bath mats, curtains, towels and rugs can help you infuse your bathroom with pastels.
