Pastel pairing with metallic accents

Pairing pastel with metallic accents will add a fresh, modern touch to your décor. Whether you have plain walls and want to jazz up your décor, or have gone for a blush feature wall or room, there’s plenty of ways to pair these two elements together.


If your walls are a neutral shade, pair with darker furniture that can then be balanced with pastel and metallic accessories.

Try working a blush tone into the cushions, and choose a metallic feature lamp to complement the look, as Elle Décor has done below.

Blush Walls

Use contrast with blush walls and grey furniture to complement your living space with a touch of metallic décor. If you decide to paint your walls a blush tone, try British Paints Pink Haven for a subtle pink.

Kitchen Colours

A blush and metallics theme can be used in stark contrast to a white kitchen, with pastel appliances, floral and copper lamps.

Used against a blank canvas such as Love Note white, you have more room to subtly inject the pastel and metallic.

Your office space is another place for incorporating pretty pastels and metallic accents. Work pastels into your books, stationary and shelves, so it’s evenly spaced on your desk without over-crowding.
