Forget twee sugar-sweet pinks and washed out blues, 2014 pastels are bright and lively. These delicious ice cream shades are everywhere in retro and contemporary designs. I found so many new pastels on eBay that it was hard to choose just six, but here are my favourites collected from our small boutique owners and high street outlets.

Wow sign

This gorgeous pink metal wall sign from Ben de Lisi at Debenhams gets a ‘yes’ from us.  Have some fun with it! How about hanging it above a mirror for a little boost in the morning?
