With such pale, pastel colours it would be a brave person who adopted this look with a young family! You could also use these pretty colour combinations in a more traditionally styled home, by using pretty patterns bedding sets, cushions and throws to create a pretty English rose styled room.

Opt for full length curtains with plenty of pleats to create a wall of gently falling fabric. Use curtain rails in white which will become hidden by the top of the curtains to create smooth lines and not distract from the beautiful fabric.
