BHG Style Spotters

The Hottest Trends for You and Your Home

Pastels are so not just for kids. They’re all over fashion and they’re heading for home next. (We’re obsessed—just take a look at the color story in our May issue!)


Phillip Lim sent the most ethereal pastels down the runway, but these colors would look just as pretty and energizing in a home office. Here’s the look:

And here’s how to use it (colors clockwise from top):

On the walls: Sweet Honeydew Melon 2033-40
In accents or an alternate wall color: Creamy Beige 2016-60
This plus ivory in a patterned drape (love it against that pale green): Splash 2059-60
A slim lamp base and accents sprinkled through the room to cut the sweetness: Jet Black 2120-20
Painted desk and in accents: Pale Iris 2073-60
Bonus: ivory upholstery
