What are the things that make our hearts skip a beat? When it comes to furnishings and accessories, our designers have very different tastes, but some things – like love itself – are universal. Here are a few of the pieces and techniques we’re crushing over right now!
Unexpected twists. Love is never boring – and your rooms shouldn’t be either. We adore taking something structured – like this Devine chair from WCL Upholstery – and kicking it up a notch with a novel color. Stir emotions even more by adding in an unexpected plush piece in a soft shade (or go bold with a vibrant red in the right setting)!
Throw them a curve. Curves are always sexy! Add these softer angles somewhere unexpected – like in this Demilune desk by Sligh in a home office – and watch the fireworks. We like pairing feminine pieces with a masculine fabric (or vice versa) to give a space universal appeal.
Accessorize! Just as jewelry can push a solid outfit over the top, the right pieces can take your room from swipe-worthy to drop-dead gorgeous. We love how these coastal inspired accessories from Uttermost bring in multiple things we adore – romantic colors and our ocean-loving vibe.
Get Chemistry! There’s nothing more romantic than an over-the-top bed, and the Bridgeton bed by Century is one of our designers’ favorites. It’s that perfect-for-each-other combination of masculine wood trim and feminine upholstery (again!) that stirs their hearts. If your passions lean toward the more traditional – or the modern – just look for a dynamic pairing of opposites to arouse a similar reaction.
Piles of pillows. What’s more romantic than snuggling into piles of pillows? Quite frankly – nothing! Whether you layer them on the bed, stack them on the couch, or toss them on the floor for the perfect spot to cuddle up in front of the TV (or by yourself with a good book), nothing says romance like the look of scattered red and pink pillows. Add some snuggle-worthy texture to amp it up another notch.
No matter what you style, add a splash of romantic color, lush textures, and sexy shapes this February – and watch the sparks fly!
