Living room in london with a blue velvet sofa, light grey tufted armchairs, two small coffe tables, a modern chandelier and a pink piece of modern art on the wall

There's just something about this pastel hued home that I'm really liking. I came across it in uber photographer Simon Watson's portfolio. When I usually think of pastels in home decor, I think of that shabby chic look or something too frou frou and frilly for me...well this home has changed my view on that!

Lavenders, blues and the palest of pinks in the living room. Then there is a soft sea foam green blue used in the dining room and den. Hmmm...these are definitely pastel colors but read as neutrals in my view.

Modern and sophisticated.  Not a lot of fuss.  Fuss-less is important here I think when using such potentially fussy colors.  Simplicity is key.

What to do you think of this decor ode to pastels?  Like or dislike?  Any of these colors you might use in your home or anything you would absolutely never use?  Do tell!

Happy Tuesday!
