Though pastels are often associated with children's rooms and Easter eggs, muted peach tones and robin's egg blue can actually be very sophisticated. The bedroom above, designed by Dyer Grimes Architects of London, proves that these shades can be used to create a restful, grown-up space. A hint of pink or yellow in a gray or black and white room, keeps it from feeling too serious. I don't naturally gravitate towards these colors, but spaces like these make me think I need to at least consider them an option the next time I have a painting project.
