Colour Stories: Pastel Power

PRECISION POISE

It’s the materials mash-up that gives this cute lamp its edge. Pretty damn cool…

PILE ’EM HIGH

Stack up the style with everyday ceramics in spearmint-fresh shades.

PERFECT HARMONY

A statement mint sofa joins ice-cream colours in a rocking setting for band practice.

HOW'S IT HANGING?

Overmantel mirrors are oh-so square. Use an on-trend pendant for instant clout.

GREAT SHAKES

A crafted table built for eight provides the perfect place for tea-time treats.

WIND-DOWN TIME

After a dash around the park, flop into a soothing, softly coloured chair – and breathe…

CREATIVE VISION

Inspiration can be so hard to come by. A glass desk makes light work of it.

NIGHT LIFE

Glam up for some high jinks at a sleek dressing table. The birch and ash combo is so flattering.

SUNDAY SERVICE

A futon-style headboard gives this bed an extra level of comfort – ideal for lounging till lunchtime.
