How to get the look
This stylish and eclectic mix of updated, sophisticated pastels fits perfectly into any home filled with your mementos and travel keepsakes, creating a soothing feeling of personal luxury. To get this look right, start with a base of muted, subdued fabrics paired with a chic pastel combination like our Lavender and Vanilla Yellow. Or you can cover your IKEA sofa in Tegnér Melange Rose, paired with BEMZ cushion covers in Fuchsia, Yellow Fiskis and Orange Kvarter. To tie the Eclectic Pastels look together, add plain and patterned cushions in unexpected colours, brass details, cut glass, crystal accessories and hand-painted wood furniture. For a fashionable, high impact style, think contrasts. Mix and match modern design classics with vintage items. Or combine matte finishes together with glossy. This style of mixing diverse furniture with unusual expressions brings life and movement to a room and is at the heart of the Eclectic Pastels idea.
