Whichever pastel you fancy, there’s something for everyone to love in this week’s top 5 design inspirations.

1. Children’s Center Inspired by Pastel

Our first pastel inspiration of the week takes us to Melbourne, where designer Danielle Brustman created a bright and cheery pastel interior for the Brighton Street Early Learning Centre. The concrete building houses individual playrooms and includes a total of 47 different pastel-like colors that flow throughout the interior. Each room has its own theme, and includes a motif of a river, meadow, star, sun, and a cloud. There are also several wall-murals, which were hand-painted by Ben Maitland. Additionally, each room has a “seasonal” feel, which adds for more options when it came to choosing a diverse color palette. Check out the rest of the building in the link above and let us know what you think of those stunning colors!


2. Springing Forward Into Pastels

30 Pastel Rooms to Help You Spring Forward, Architectural Digest


Our second design inspiration of the week is all about life, as Architectural Digest pulled together 30 of their best pastel-themed living rooms. These living rooms are a sight to see, from light shades of blues intertwining with mauves and purples to bright yellows accenting a massive painting. On the list, number 5 – the Nantucket home – proves you can keep it classy and incorporate pastels without going too far into one color. The kitchen is a gorgeous shade of cream, which matches the surrounding interior with ease. Right below, we love the purple-themed master bath outside of a living room, including the centerpiece chair, which accents the floor tile perfectly.
