Benjamin Moore announced its color of 2013 this week – a pastel yellow called Lemon Sorbet. But, whilst that conjures up delicious food and fashion options, pastels in the home can give many cause for concern, after all, Easter is but once a year. Since pastels seem to be here to stay, how do you incorporate this soft yellow in a sophisticated rather than sickly way? The answer lies in the palette…
As you can see lashings of white is the balancing ingredient to a room with sunny yellow walls. Adding accents in hot pink and cooling lime keep the look fresh and bright whilst adding visual interest. Incorporating textural, natural elements such as sisal and basket weave will help ground the palette.
