To celebrate the joys of Spring we take a look at the very specific pastel colour palette that has become synonymous with this time of year – symbolizing positivity and new life. Spring is also the perfect time for a redecoration project so let’s take some inspiration from our favourite pastel coloured film sets.
Pastel green reminds us of new growth, green grass and if you’re a film fanatic – the walls of the children’s party in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
