Something about the muted nature of the colors and the way they soften the hard lines of contemporary design just drew us in.  Image from 70 Ideas In truth, I have personally had a long and torrid relationship with pastels. Too kitschy, too retro, too childish. And yet in researching, I discovered that today's pastels are much more serious.

They're also striking without being over the top.  So what are the tricks to a good pastel interior? Keep things neutral. There are tons of options in modern white kitchen chairs . Geometric patterns blend surprisingly well with pastel colors.

Table lamps are ideal for the job because they come in almost every color under the sun.

A coat of white, pink or blue paint can transform tired old furnishings into anchor pieces for your cheery new space.  Images: Coco Lapine Design , 79 Ideas , Trendenser
