Valentine’s Day Decor

As Valentine’s Day approaches, we have put together our top ideas for romantic decor. Whether you need a last-minute gift for one of your Valentines or you need to spice things up in your projects this year, here are ways to include love and passion-invoking elements into your interior designs.

Red Hot Love

The color red invokes passion.

Red is a highly stimulating color. It brings out passion, aggression, and energy. At the same time, however, red is associated with hearts, love, food, and flowers

  • Pairs well with neutrals, especially black & white.
  • Don’t over saturate – too much is, too much.
  • Red works best as an accent.
  • Have fun with it – be daring and creative!

Making Me Blush

The color pink represents love and compassion. While in American culture, pink is categorized as a feminine color, it is thoughtful and non-threatening. It symbolizes  unconditional love and is perfect to evoke love and nurturing for the whole household.

  • Pairs well with many colors
  • Many different shades to work with
  • Rose gold may seem like a trend that could go out soon, but it is a great way to incorporate “pink” without being too feminine.

Champagne on Ice

Liven up an environment, with items that lead to a good time. The best way to get people in the mood or feeling passionate is with music and alcohol. Lift spirits or have romantic evenings or breakfast in bed mornings by designing spaces to include a home bar or if working with small spaces, use bar carts.

Dim the Lights

Low lighting is the perfect way to prepare you for cuddling, intimacy, and sleep. Use creative ways to make the transition seem like a special moment.

  • Chandeliers: Not only do chandeliers portray elegance and wealth, they are fairytale-esque and romantic.
  • Pendants and sconces are perfect for low light
  • Mirrors can reflect soft light and be alluring
  • Candles are sensual provide low lighting
  • LED lighting and panels: can spruce up with color, which is stimulating

Curves

Curves mimic the human form and are considered sexy. They lead the eye and offer interesting angles, enticing curiosity. Adding interesting curves to your designs gives the building character and sexuality.

  • You can make an entire building a work of art by adding curvy elements into the structure.
  • Connect with architects for ideas, insight and great collaborations. Don’t be afraid to take risks with designing.
  • Add depth: Tall windows, high ceilings
  • Staircases: An easy way to add sexiness and sophistication to a house
  • Hideaways: A creative way to use space with arches

Rich Mahogany

“People know me. I’m very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.” – Ron Burgandy

Masculinity and office-life can be alluring. We love the idea of adding rich, vintage elements. Think Mad Men.
