With the Scandinavian minimalist aesthetic now trending in homes across Australia, thanks mostly to photos of it flooding Instagram, it’s worth looking at ways you can make a home feel like ‘you’. If you’ve adopted that less-is-more décor approach, sure, you want your space to feel relaxing and spacious, but at the same time, you also want it to have character and to feel like it represents all things ‘you’.
While there are many ways to do this, like painting the walls in your favourite colour, hanging art by an artist you admire or framed photos of your nearest and dearest, one of the easiest ways is to add pops of colour in the form of throw pillows, towels and even kitchenware.
Pastel-coloured décor, in particular, can blend in nicely with a minimalist aesthetic as it’s also soft and calming. Still, it adds personality and warmth. If you think pastels might help lend themselves to your home, read on, because we’ve rounded up some of our favourite pieces in their shades below.
