If you've been following this week you'll have seen my post on Colour Tools. I mentioned I'm crazy about pastels right now, so I thought this pastel themed home which I spotted in Urbis would be a great one to share today.
Located in Melbourne, this mid-century modern home is the project of interior designers Hecker Guthrie. Although it was architecturally sound and had plenty of character, the owners wanted to make changes to the interior layout and finishes. By simply knocking out a few walls, they achieved the open-plan-style living they desired whilst maintaining the integrity of the original house. Oak flooring and a fresh white palette has provided an ideal canvas to add colour, in this case soft pastel shades. Wishbone chairs in mint and lavender, pink and blue Eames elephants and dusky coloured stools are some of the key pieces of furniture that feature throughout.
The white and pastel theme is further enhanced by earthy tones in the living area and pops of neon on the kitchen shelf.
The Wishbone chairs work equally well in the office. I love the choice of mint here.
This beautiful artwork adds contrast to the gentle colour scheme and depth to the space, while metallics add texture. I love these pendant lights!
Lovely bench top arrangements add texture and definition to the all white kitchen.
The bathroom features lovely stone tiles and the continuity of neutrals and metallics.
The white-washed exterior provides a striking entrance to the home.
To tie in once again with the Colour Tools feature, I've used photoshop to extract the pastel shades used in the home. Which is your favourite colour?
I absolutely adore the combination of white, wood and pastels. With the addition of designer furniture, beautiful artwork and homewares in neutrals and shimmering metallics this is definitely a home I'd love to live in! How do you feel about using pastels in the home?
