3. Choosing the right wood finishes for your pastels interiors

The easy adaptability of pastel colors is the strength to blend with natural materials such as wood paneling, wood floors, rattan, seagrass and more in your interiors. Find lighter colored woods such as white oak, bamboo, lighter maple and similar varieties to compliment your pastel decor and appointments. If you’d like a contrast in your interiors steer towards rich cherry wood which looks gorgeous with pink and peach colors or try mahogany or deep brown colored stains with pastel yellow, blue or green for a beautiful contrast.
