It suits both traditional and modern design. Benjamin Moore’s senior interior designer Sonu Mathew explains that this season we will see a softening of the palate, and refers to this softening as “the emerging pastel.” Paired with white, rich woods or even a bright raspberry for a pop of color, Lemon Sorbet can be used in a multitude of ways in a multitude of rooms. It can be used in a toned-down manner to create a serene and relaxing space, or paired with a fun and punchy color to create energy and drama.
Many home furnishings companies have reproduction lines that recreate the nostalgic and retro looks that we all love. If you decide to use authentic period furniture from garage sales, hand-me-downs or from vintage stores, ensure you are safe when painting, refinishing, or changing the look of old furniture. Especially children’s furnishings can have lead based paint, toxic varnishes and also can have safeguards that are not in place as modern children’s furniture. Keep this in mind if you’re refinishing old furniture or plan to buy children’s cribs, changing tables and other adolescent furniture.
Outdoor living, especially on the front porch was a way of life for many homeowners during midcentury years and bringing retro styled garden furniture to your front porch is one way to re-live those years. Metal or heavy gauge steel garden furniture in pastel hues or vibrant color palettes are perfect for your outdoor home. Add a modern appeal with all-weather seat cushions in fun patterns like florals, stripes, or polka dots to bring back the days of drinking ice cold soft drinks from a glass bottle with a straw on the front porch and watching the world go by!
