A Modern Version of Pastels

Professional Project by Pia Richter

Pia Richter is a NYC based architectural designer, now branching out and running her own agency after working with The Apartment (the team responsible for one of my favorite NYC interiors). She shared her complete source list for each room in this creatively colorful project; providing us with a one stop guide for fresh ideas for using pastel colors in a modern way - it's cool, unexpected and still unapologetically pretty...

Our favorite touch (and idea to take away for a very high end look at home) are the layered patterned sheers, color matched to the easter-egg shaded walls. Used in both the living room and bedroom, it feels slightly old-world-y and fashionable at the same time - definitely one for the inspiration clip file.
