Mix up those fabulous pastel paint colours
The Ice Cream Shades trend differs from other pastel colour schemes in the way the colours are combined in the room. Forget wishy-washy pale lemon everywhere, the colours used are on the highest saturation end of the pastel spectrum, and they’re applied in bold blocks. Think of real ice cream flavours – lemon, raspberry, pistachio, mint, vanilla. Then create a tasty colour combination on your walls. Delicious!
Reflect the pastel paint colours in large mirrors, adding more brightness to the room. And think about blinds or curtains in complementary pastel shades.
Wooden furniture – perfect with any pastel colour scheme
A pastel colour scheme is cool, while natural wood – such as oak, beech or elm – is warm in tone. This is why wood suits the Ice Cream Shades trend so well. So if you already have a wooden dining set or a wooden floor in your dining room you’re half way there.
Pastel paint colours are fabulously retro, and so is the iconic mid-century design of Ercol furniture, including their famous Ercol Originals collection which includes the never-out-of-style stacking and butterfly chairs.
