Design showcase: Top five pastel-coloured interiors
We consider five hotels that have deliberately steered clear of rich hues in favour of a soft, light and airy colour palette for our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN feature.
Most people are familiar with the term ‘pastel colours’, but what are they exactly?
Pastel colours are defined, in technical terms, as a hue with a high value and low to medium saturation. Taking this into consideration, they’re not just the typical cotton-candy pink.
So, how do designers use these without turning a room into a unicorn factory? Great pastel interiors create a calming and harmonious ambience with simplicity, texture and interest.
Today, we’ve selected five projects that’ve successfully turned pastels into their weapon of choice.
From a 158-year-old aristocratic palazzo with restored ornate frescoes, original flooring, a carefully curated modern art collection and cosy, sleek and clean atmospheres with delicately incorporated state-of-the-art technologies to a reinvented mint-toned Vegas nightclub, these designs value comfort while paving the way for captivating experiences.
