Winter Pastels

Homey Oh My

Pastels are no longer a color for the springtime only, they have become a popular, fashion forward color trend for the Winter as well, and can be carried throughout every design style and a variety of spaces from bathrooms and bedrooms to kitchens and living rooms.

My Domaine

Fresh Farmhouse

Soft warm tones not only lighten up a space making it feel airy, bright, and larger, but also give a fresh yet calming look.

Winter Pastels can be used as a main color within a space such as on a wall or large piece of furniture and / or used for accessorizing and detailing the finishing touches, such as coordinating pillows, vases, blankets, and rugs.

Brit & Co

Whether you’re going for a delicate and subtle look or trying to make a bold statement, pastels can cover any look and feeling you’re wanting to accomplish.


House and Home


We recommend pairing with neutrals for a completed sophisticated look. Some of our favorite Winter Pastels include: Blush, Cream, and Gray.

During my lunchtime walk, I came upon this furniture
 set by the side of the road, for the town's annual cleanup. It didn't look very old probably less
 than 7 to 10 years I'm guessing. Yes, it is falling apart and being thrown out like a beach 
umbrella... that made me reflect on the furniture we craft. We often say that it is built to be 
passed on to the next generation. Not just durability, joinery, or attention to detail, but pieces 
that will both look appealing and timeless. In contrast, the Cherry dovetailed bookcase shown is
 about 30 years old with daily use. Yes, it still looks good as new, sure its had a few scratches 
over time, but because it is constructed from solid wood, those scratches were easily touched up
 and we still use this at shows. Investing in good, well crafted furniture now, will pay dividends for decades to come. We're proud to say Made in Maine.
