Home Design: Modern Pastels

Though it's been a while, I think I'm going to try to get back into more home design posts. Though we don't have any plans to move (or redecorate) any time soon, I've found a lot of inspiration on Pinterest and am loving all of the pastels I've seen lately. No longer reserved for kid's rooms or Easter eggs, pastels are making a comeback. Thanks to modern shapes and geometric prints, baby blue, light pink and mint green can brighten up a room and add a pop of color without being too overwhelming–read on for some of my favorite products.

This ceramic Mint Geo Vase ($30) would look stunning with a bouquet of white tulips.
Thanks to its sleek design, the pale pink Arper Duna Lounge Chair ($831) doesn't feel too sweet.
This mouthblown Austrian crystal pitcher and tumbler set for Lobmeyer (from $65) adds subtle color to the table.
Balanced with neutral white and gray, the Pietro Throw (approximately $140) would work just as well in your living room as in a nursery.
This multi-use cutting board ($37)–it can also be used as a trivet and serving platter–is an affordable way to embrace two trends in one: pastels and geometric prints.
Thailand-based Studiomake purposefully makes each gold-plated bowl ($68) flawed to emphasize the beauty in imperfection.
