Beach Tones Pastels from Design Seeds

Color Palette | Pastels Spring Back in 2012

Pastels are springing back this year and we are so happy about that fact!  We are all about peace & quiet, calm & relaxation in our cottage.  Don’t get me wrong, a pop of bright color is fun and we can certainly appreciate it too.

Isn’t this ‘beached tones‘ color palette from Design Seeds great?  All the pastel colors are soft, beautiful and calming. LOVE it!
