Stylist: Charlotte Love’s Pretty Pastels

A few months ago I featured one of Charlotte Love’s prints in a 10 Things I Learned & Loved This Weekend post but today I want to share one of her recent test shoots. As well as running an online shop, Charlotte is also a very talented interior stylist, whose work regularly catches my eye in the likes of Good Homes magazine and when assisting the lovely Selina Lake. I think she styled up this pastels story an absolute treat without going overboard and creating a sickly sweet result. Rather, the space feels fresh and organic, not overly forced. Charlotte has expertly paired sorbet hues together, breaking them with the occasional flash of neon – the key to creating a winning pastel scheme. The dip dyed curtain teamed with the baby blue hued wooden chair is such a delight! As we know, pastels are top of the class in both interiors and fashion right now so I hope this shoot sends lots of work Charlotte’s way. What a talented, creative and inspiring woman!

    oh my goodness. this is just the inspiration i needed to makeover a few fairly ugly chairs hiding in my basement! those pastels are perfect.

    Very pistachio ice cream inspired! I like the chairs – somewhat like a girl with a birght dress and nude coloured hose.

    i am crazy about pastel as well. just came back from NYC with lots of pastel and my friend gave me a “WTH” look since I am no longer just picking black and white or navy blue! I'm totally loving minty green, yellow, and even considering pale pink!

    These pastels are all so pretty + just adore the typewriter! Those pink-dipped curtains are lovely too. I've just seen Charlotte'shop + love just about everything – thank you for the intro Will! xx

    i love that first pic: the dip-dyed curtain and then the chair… wonderful. i love that the chair's legs are in natural wood. with this detail the room doesn't feel too girlie, but gives it a modern look. lovely post, Will. lots to pin ;-), have a great day.

    Love the first picture! So soft and feminine, but not too sweet…Perfect! Thanks Will πŸ™‚

    These shots are lovely! I think I might snap up the idea of partially painting things. I've already been planning to paint some of my wooden furniture to add a bit of colour. This looks great!

    I've always loved pastel colours (especialy mint) so I'm super excited about this years trend (mint is everywhere). I love the dip painted chairs and the work desk area (that little green clock is adorable).

  • Reply Anna Elder June 20, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    This makes me want ice cream and candy. Those curtains are to-die for.

  • Reply Gwen June 20, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Would love to see a picture of that entire desk. Too gorgeous! =)

    I adore the plates! anyone know where theyre from?

  • Reply June 20, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    I love the chairs and the dip dyed fabrics. I'm a little wary of using colors that are on-trend, but Charlotte uses the trend in a way that won't make it look passe a few years down the road.

    I love the cameras! Do you know where they are from?

  • Reply Pretty Dandy Homewares June 22, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Pastels can so easily become too cutesy or too trad, but these images completely avoid that and make it feel fresh, young and contemporary. Hats off to Charlotte!
