Enjoy a Pastel Christmas in the Kitchen

Soft hues can be especially pretty for the holidays, and this pastel Christmas kitchen is proof positive of that. When I was a kid, we always had a live, flocked tree that towered above me to the top of our living room’s vaulted ceiling. My mother trimmed the tree with pink and aqua beaded ornaments that were highly popular back in the 1960s (and now I’m giving my age away!). I’ve always had a fondness for a pastel holiday palette because of it. So I was delighted to find this festive kitchen that reminds me of my youth.

This Scandinavian style’s kitchen has a different pastel color scheme than my mother’s Christmas. Pale green, white, and gold ornaments complement the green cabinetry of the small kitchen.

Paper packages are tied up with string for a simple Nordic effect. A light-stained wooden bowl cradles ornaments not used on the tabletop tree. I have similar ornaments that I placed in a bowl as a Christmas decoration during my Christmas home tour of 2018.

Open shelves take on the holiday spirit with a pretty wreath and wooden Christmas trees. You’ll notice a few pine cones on both the tree and the wreath. Pine cones are an inexpensive decorating staple for the holidays. You can always find some on the ground in a variety of sizes.

  1. Your posts are always a joy and I so much like the variety – special ornament colors one day and innovative bathrooms the next. And chairs – I, like you, enjoy chairs, odd, Windsor and many more. Thank you.

  2. I love pastels for Christmas decor. It is calming and blends with any color decor. The reindeer pillow is adorable.

  3. Love receiving your post. I decorate my home each year with the traditional red and green. A few years I ventured over to the pastels, but seem to always come back to the more vibrant red and greens. For me, they make my home more festive.

  4. I usually decorate with pastel colors but, I just love everything about Christmas. It’s just a time to celebrate Jesus birth so it’s all so peaceful and lovely.

  5. That is really pretty kitchen. Haha, I like bubble lights from the 50’s for the same reason. I always decorate the kitchen in reds and greens, the only time I use those colors. The living room this year is bronze, ivory, and golds and the front room is soft peaches, blues and ivory. The dining room is all out colored lights and Santa, a little nostalgic.

  6. I love the green color of your kitchen! I’m really curious which color exactly it is, currently looking into ideas for my new kitchen and want to go for a lovely green 🙂 Could you share it? Thanks for the inspiring ideas.
