Color Study: Pastels

Today is the first day of spring!  Even though it has not been a cold winter, I have been looking forward to this.  The sun is out longer, the weather is warming up, and the world feels full of potential.  In honor of the first day of spring Brynn proposed that we do a post on pastels.  I have to say this was a challenge for me as I don't have many pastel objects.  Be sure to stop by Chartruese and a Twist for more inspiration.

(Please note that the floral pattern in the top image is from the cover of my copy of Domino Book of Decorating by Deborah Needleman, Sara Ruffin Costello, and Dara Caponigro)

  1. Good for you, you got to see the sun. I've been missing it for 3 days no. It keeps on raining in our place.

    Nice choices of pastels, I've always liked these colors.
