Create a calming, restful scheme with a palette of soft pastels. Co-ordinate your upholstery in tonal pastel shades; try a sofa, chair and footstool in a mix of grey, pale blue and shell pink, then add cushions and throws in matching shades. Line shelves with pretty pastel accessories, as rows of books in sugary tones will complement the scheme.
