seaside sanctuary

From Habitat magazine - issue 25

Use washed pastels for a dreamy vibe.

It's easy to defer to sea and sand tones when decorating a beachy bedroom, but this range of dusky washed pastels creates a heavenly haven that would look sublime anywhere.

Muted pastels bedroom
Seaside sanctuary

It all begins with a great new colour, Resene Rascal, for the walls. It's a delicious merging of blush, soft tan and peach, so answers the current desire for neutrals that have extra personality. It's teamed up with a floor in Resene Unwind, a cane bedside table in Resene Mozart, and an ottoman in Resene Inside Back. The pots are in Resene Inside Back and Resene Stetson.

Add a floaty bed-net made from Pause voile in colour Naturalle from the Resene Curtain Collection, and some washed linen bedding. It's a room that would be hard to leave each morning.
