Springtime is here and with the recent launch of our latest project at Wyke Farms, we want to appreciate delicate colour schemes and the best ways to use a pastel palette. Pastels and pale colours are traditionally avoided in corporate interior design schemes due to being ‘wishy-washy’ or ‘babyish’ – and Wylde are here to debunk that myth!

Pastel palettes are the perfect balance of softness and sophistication which makes for the ideal colour scheme for the modern workplace. The workplace has changed and in a time where so many of us have been working from home, the office has changed forever to a place to touch base, hot desk, meet clients and generate ideas. The design of the space needs to be fresh, energising and inspiring.

For our recent project at Wyke we used a combination of timber surfaces paired with soft pastel coloured furniture and a carefully designed lighting scheme, to create a relaxing and homely aesthetic to a state-of-the-art modern facility. Colours, materials and fittings were chosen to create a crisp professional feel, from the fixtures to the lighting solutions, all the design elements have been carefully considered to create a relaxed environment which reinforces the welcoming family heritage of the business.  

That’s not where it ends! We’ve developed a pastel palette into several other workplace schemes including light blues and yellows to compliment the marine hues in our project for Turner & Townsend. We’ve also introduced delicate pastels into more daring design schemes such as the headquarters for innocent, Fruit Towers. The pastel colours were introduced in a variety of furniture specifications to soften the bold primary coloured artworks and bright astroturf flooring!

We love pushing boundaries when it comes to workplace designs and the more we can explore and play with different colour schemes and design options, the more we can provide a space that is invigorating to use and totally representative of your brand identity and organisation!

If you’re not convinced yet, we’ve compiled a gallery of some of our favourite pastel palette design schemes – including some of our own of course!
