The new darlings of the moment, the pastel tones might look gruff and uncharacteristic in the not-so-distant past, but a few years ago they came back to show strong design tendencies in general.
The pastel colors soften not only the view we have of the environment but ensure that we have a sense of calm and tranquility, no matter the idea of decoration. That's why the minimalist environments do not seem empty or cold with them and the environments more filled with objects and furniture do not seem crowded. In both decorations, the overall feel of the composition is softened by the right choice of colors.
And it is because of this effect that pastel colors have and by their increasing appearance in objects, furniture and decorations of environments that today's post will talk about these shades, how they came back to fashion and their growing uses in decoration!
Palettes of pastel tones: from basic beige to candy colors trends
Used in interior decoration, fashion, make-up and conceptual design pieces, the pastel shades have been defined only by white and beige derivatives to encompass a variety of colors.
In 2016, Pantone, a company that catalogs and standardizes colors for the general industry, has selected two shades of color of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity, shades of pink and baby blue to work alone or together as a trend .
Pantone's choice not only defined the new trends but began to explore these "baby" shades differently. Now when we speak in pastel tones we can also think of the lighter shades of pink, yellow, blue, green, lilac, orange and gray, which end up giving more personality to what once seemed to be "pale", "erased" or "bland. ".
They gained so much personality that they started to have other names: candy colors or off-white.
These candy tones are those that are considered more colorful in their lighter shapes, much like the colors that appear on sweet cottons sold there. They are perfect not only for children's environments, but to give a different mood to all environments. It is with them that architects and designers are playing at the time of decorating living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bedrooms.
Use of gray as a super versatile color
The gray, which has always been associated with a dark and cool color, has been used as the perfect balance for the environment with the most colorful pastels. Serving as much for the protagonism as to balance with these shades, the gray gained in the more contemporary environments the importance that needed to be explored of diverse forms in the decoration.
