Create a calming space with gorgeous pastels from Home Fabrics

Home Fabrics, the innovative and trendy fabric house has the perfect cue for your interior makeover: a perfect pastel up-do. 

Soft, supple with a wonderful handle, suede has moved up to the next level of contemporary interior design. Saddle is a collection of 46 distinctive colours, from trendy up-to-the-minute fashion colours, to the more restrained neutrals and desert shades. Hard-wearing with a martindale rub count of over 100,000, Saddle is very versatile fabric suitable for upholstery, curtaining and blinds, headboards and many other decorative accessories.

Refreshing and beautiful pastel shades are the perfect accompaniment to so many decor options it’s definitely a colour scheme that is here to stay. The Saddle Collection is one of soft suede shades that are beautifully feminine yet still elegant. We’ve compiled some amazing products that will take this collection to the next level.

Mix and match your decor, flooring and lighting with these luscious colours. From grape to pink, powder blue to coral; there is so much variety to play around with. Our top picks will work well with any of the Saddle collection colours- the textures and shades should work seamlessly with any of your favourites.

Colour Schemes 

For a light and bright feel to your space, match your Saddle fabrics to a neutral shade. Pure white will add depth to the fabric, while a more grey shade will bind your metallics to your fabrics. While lighter shades work well with the Scandinavian style, feel free to create more of a mood with dark teal, blues or even darker if you’re daring.


A slick of paint is always a winner but creating a feature wall with wallpaper is a sure way to make a statement. The aim is to bring out the colours of your fabrics. We’ve chosen Armani Casa’s Precious Fibre wallpaper from Dreamweaver Studios as a winner. The soft shimmer will bring out your metallics and add a rich feel to the pastels in the Saddle collection. This is a palm leaf print so you are still adding a touch of the tropical trend to your interior but with a glamorous twist!

The SHF Mosaic Mirror in Gold is another way to bring your colour schemes together in a romantic yet edgy way.


Why not go for a darker wood floor from Lalegno to really bring out your pastels? This adds necessary contrast to a lighter room. A herringbone style is another way to bring your flooring to life and will look gorgeous with the Saddle collection.

We have chosen a Veronica Lidchi Griff collection rug in Bronze Azurite. The striking azure woven into the fabric is perfect to add a little pop of colour into your decor. This will heighten any choice of fabric colour and also create continuity with your overall scheme.


We love bespoke wood furniture for this look as it pairs so well with pastel tones and metallics (in fact, anything really). We have chosen a Natural French Oak sideboard from Pierre Cronje that is functional and modern. The Golden Moon coffee table from Casarredo is another winner- the perfect way to add a metallic finish to your decor and yet another material; glass.

Everything in between

The little touches like greenery and homeware are also important. Jazz up your pastel couch with plenty of texture and bold monochrome blankets or throws. We love this Studio W print throw from Woolworths to bring some contrast into your scheme.

Keep up with the metallics and add this Jonathan Adler centrepiece bowl to your sideboard.

A beautiful crystal chandelier from K Light completes the look. Neither too ornate nor understated, this is the perfect balance for a modern yet romantic style.

Your plants are often the last bit of decor one chooses for their home. We have chosen a two-tone plant that adds height and a refreshing green. The twist is that this Lincor plant is totally artificial (silk) and so does not require any sunlight or watering.
