Q: I want to give my home a colourful refresh. I love pastel colours, but don’t want to run the risk of my home looking like a kid’s room. How can I make pastel colours work for my space?

A: While many people associate pastel colours with children’s spaces, don’t be afraid to use the softer hues in your home, especially if it’s a palette that you love. Add pops of it in your space through accessories such as scatter cushions, photo frames and even printable art that can easily be purchased online and changed whenever you feel like it. If you’re prepared to throw caution to the wind and fully embrace your love of pastels, why not get creative with colour contrasts or patterns on your walls, floors or even your ceiling? Look for inspiration online for examples that suit your existing interior design.
