Pastels are known for being soft, pale colors, but there’s nothing mild about pastel tile’s design impact. In fact, many other tile colors pale in comparison (pun intended).
You’ve guessed it — we’re exploring pastel tile. These muted tones are both soothing and cheerful, and did we mention gorgeous?
Read on for a look at tile in some of our favorite pastel hues, including baby blues, mint greens, pale pinks, and more.
Baby Blue Tile
Oh baby, do we love baby blue tile. Reminiscent of both the sky and the ocean, baby blue is uplifting and relaxing, instilling a room with gentle energy. Pastel blues are a great choice to create a beachy or coastal look in your home.
The baby blue tile above is a creative interpretation of subway tile using a smaller shape, a bevelled edge, and one-fourth offset.

Mint Green Tile
Another pastel favorite is mint green, brought to perfect fruition in the three-dimensional ridged wall tile above paired with a terrazzo look. As mint is itself, mint green tile is invigorating, creating a fresh and clean look.
Muted Green Tile
We can’t help but include another pastel green tile example, as green tile is a popular trend this year.
While muted, this pastel green still manages to convey a cheerfulness that brightens up the space. The oxidized patches of gold shine when they catch the light, adding even more illumination and a touch of glamor.

Pastel Aqua Tile
Pastel aqua packs all of the punch of brighter turquoise shades and is a great choice to create a peaceful, zen-like mood.
Pastel Pink Tile

If pink isn’t quite for you, pale peach or clay tones are a more earthy alternative. The orange tones in these shades instill energy in a space without being overwhelming.
In fact, the feature wall above uses a peachy tone as a creative neutral — close to a beige but with a bit more color.
Pastel Yellow Tile
Yellow tile evokes the happiness, joy, and positivity of a sunshiny day, and choosing a yellow in a pastel shade can make it easier to incorporate into the rest of your decor.
Yellow (or “Illuminating”) is actually one of Pantone’s 2021 colors of the year, so we expect yellow tile in all shades to take off in the coming months.
