Grey is not often a color that comes to mind when we think of pastels, but as we take a look at today’s chalky hues, we see just how nicely they play together. Adding just a hint of slate to these typically soft and kiddie-type colors, we now notice how they appear much more muted and sophisticated. From wall colors to fabrics and furniture pieces, these now grown-up pastels will bring a newness and freshness to just about any room in your home.
