A pretty Swedish apartment in a 1930s building

I absolutely adore this apartment for sale in a 1930s buidling in Gothenburg. Many of its original features have been lovingly restored to its former glory such as the beautiful wood floors, limestone window sills, wardrobes and fireplace. Add in some pretty pastel walls, a bit of wallpaper, some gorgeous art and modern furniture, and a bonus mezzanine space and you have quite a beauty. (Thank you Silje for the link to this space on Stadshem).

A farmhouse in pastels and white 

No, this doesn't look like your typical farmhouse. A Scandinavian vibe with lots of white, grey and pastels with wood accents make this modern, clean and bright. Styling: Laura Melling + design: Scott Posno + photos: Janis Nicolay.

Dirty pastels

Definitely not your typical pastel palette. Not a sign of nursery pink or sugar Easter egg blues and greens. No, a more mature pastel scheme, muted, dirty, soft but still striking. Add to that beautiful textures, patinaed metallics and playful patterns and the result is a charming and stylish family home by Los Angeles-based Reath Design.

A pretty seaside home

Tara Mangini and Percy Bright of Jersey Ice Cream Co. sure do know how to add rustic, feel-good character to a home. This summer and weekend getaway in Long Island was about 10 years old and the only interesting element it had was wood beamed ceilings. This creative duo added a sense of history that would make you think this house had been in the family for decades. With pale pastels, a stunning kitchen and a bit of gorgeous Farrow & Ball wallpaper, this home now has all the character the homeowners could ask for.

Modern pastels

I'm still reeling from the crowded chaos of my Christmas shopping. It's time for another getaway to calm my jangled nerves and as for those of you facing the long, bleak hours of a hump day at work I'm guessing you'd like a virtual escape too. How about the soothing pastel prettiness of London's Leman Locke Hotel by Grzywinski+Pons? I love the play of powder-puff pastels against the raw concrete and the modern minimalism. Meet you in the bar for a drink. Something pink perhaps?
