Back to the topic at hand: pastels. Paintings made with them are better, loud colors become soft through them and they make it OK to wear yellow in November. Just the smallest hint of pastel can turn a room from it's standard name (dining room, kitchen) to that room in your house everyone raves about when you give them a tour.
If you don't believe me (I can't believe you're calling me a liar, by the way.), check out these photos below and imagine what they'd be without pastels. Maybe you'd still like them, but would you like them as much?
If this doesn't send you to Target on a pastel hunt, there's no hope for you. I guess you could find your happiness in brights or earth tones, but you'll be missing out.

|Under normal circumstances this kitchen would look like something from "The Flintstones." (I've seen rocks that|
weren't so gray.) But add the blue island with the same wood finish and it not only blends but it brings life to the room. Paired with the sun coming from the window, this is now a very happy kitchen.
|Looking for retro look? Put your pastels together in a cute arrangement. Then play some Elvis on a record player in your poodle skirt because it will seem wrong not to with this in your house.|
How do you use pastels to decorate?
