3 Surprising Ways to Decorate with Pastel Blinds

Don’t call us crazy yet. I bet you never thought you’d find yourself considering bright pastel blinds for your house, but neither did we.

Blinds.com recently expanded the color collection for the Designer 2″ Wood Blinds to include dark espresso stains, bamboo slats, and 3 bright pastel paint colors. In the world of window coverings we see a lot of classic neutrals, but with spring in the air we’re ready for something bright and fun.


Why Pastel?

Pastels are making a huge splash in fashion and home decor. Designers are mixing them with neon, color blocking, or layering tons of pastels together for a soft, dimensional look. We love the pastel pop of color that bright SMEG fridges are bringing to homes.

Let’s see this look in action!
