If pink, peach and teal is your idea of the perfect rainbow, then you’ll enjoy these happy rooms. Incorporate a few fresh ideas into your own decor to brighten a bland room. From paint to pillows, bringing spring home is easier than you think and it’s so rejuvenating – sayonara, winter! Don’t let the snow shovel hit you on the way out.
Pink-ify a Door
This gorgeous soft pink is Behr’s Coral Fountain. And how about the way the ridged detail is carried onto the frame? Stunning.
Speaking of doors, here’s another beauty. The great thing about a door is that it’s relatively easy to paint, and you can go bold. It’s only paint, after all! Have fun. Here, a bright blast of teal is eye-catching against a black doorknob.
In this happy nursery, pastel accents look punchy against white walls. If your kid has outgrown a cute outfit, now’s your chance to get more use out of it. Yes, anything can be decor, even a onesie.

A Colourful Combo
Gold, pink and tan are a match made in springtime heaven in this youthful living room showcasing goods by HomeSense. Those jazzy pillows are so joyful, and that gold-base pouf that doubles as a drinks table (just add a tray) is right on-trend. And remember: it’s always a good idea to freshen a space with an adult-sized plant!
Pink and Blue
Ring-a-ling-ling. That’s the sound of a rotary phone calling because we’re feeling a 1950s vibe from these button-tufted sweetheart sofas. Pink and blue should always be seen!

Splashes of Spring
A few easy pieces give this light-filled office springtime sass, including a sweet splayed-legged chair with zippy fabric, a bohemian rug and abstract artwork.
This is a commitment. Do you dare? Or maybe you’re content with swooning over these slick blue cabinets that recall Tiffany’s iconic colour palette.
A Soft Slumber
Pastels work beautifully in a bedroom because they’re instantly calming. Layer your bedding, like in this image from HomeSense, to create subtle depth and interest.
Love These Baby Blues
If there’s one place where pastel colours always fit it’s a nursery. A clever wall treatment is a fun foil to the adorable accessories – from the mini chair to the stuffed animals and pale-coloured carpet. Note the use of black, which lends definition to the space.
This living room exudes a come-hither casualness. It’s all about those relaxed, colourful blankets and pillows. This room doesn’t take itself too seriously – not a contrived karate-chopped pillow to be found! Come fall, remove the lot and replace with autumnal hues.
When you think “accessory” a chair isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. And yet these bright bamboo seats from HomeSense help bring this orange-peachy scene together. A striped rug, a burst of blooms and orange dishware completes the look.

The Pink-Kissed Vanity of Your Dreams
Can we talk about this bathroom? On second thought, let’s not talk. Let’s stare at its perfection. Benjamin Moore’s Head Over Heels, a pale pink, is restricted to the vanity, balanced by hits of black and grey to keep the space sophisticated instead of girly. #CopyingForDreamBathroom
PS: That grey in the bedroom is Benjamin Moore’s Metropolitan.
Pastels look lovely in a pastoral setting. You don’t even have to go overboard. Gently introduce subdued pinks and blues with an antique-looking rug, a fabulous blanket and cloth napkins, like in this vignette by the crafty team at HomeSense.
We’ve got a crush on these juicy orange doors that work brilliantly against the turquoise flourishes in the room. So sharp! Psst… Bright pastels look fabulous in bracingly white spaces.
Too timid to go full-on pink or blue or peach? Then pretty pastel artwork is for you. You can always switch it up with the seasons. We like this modern beachy number inside a kitted-out bungalow by The Property Brothers. The sunny scene and fresh flowers say “Get outdoors, before the weather changes.”
