Bold bright colours can be wonderful in a design scheme and bring a space alive. But the soothing shades of soft pastels can have just as big an impact on a design scheme. Just in a more subtle understated way.
It can be refreshing to have a space where there is nothing fighting for attention. Just a simple understated and relaxing space.
