Happy Valentines’s Day to all my blog readers, I love you all! I hope you all have a romantic and love inspired day. Whether it consists of a romantic dinner for two, a trip to an exotic location, a massage or even just a love note from a friend or client this day is sure to be red, pink, white and gushy!
Here are some great Red color schemes and red interiors to inspire your day. Stop and think… what makes a space romantic? what makes a space luxurious? what makes a space an exciting getaway? what sights, smells, textures, lighting and moods are necessary for a valentines surprise? It can be hard to introduce the color red to a color scheme without overtaking the interior, but if you add it as bold pops in luxurious materials with a white backdrop you are sure to have a winner! The shade of red you choose will also impact the mood you achieve. orange reds appeal more to men and blue reds appeal more to women- is that why Valentines items tend to be more blue-red focused?
This room is so beautiful! I think it is another Philippe Starck creation but I don’t remember! It has plenty of old world charm but all done in a new way. The freshness of the white bedding, headboard and walls make the picture frame collage on the wall and the red blanket really stand out and add character to the cleanliness of the bedroom. This is a very feminine but sweet space that I could see a teenage girl, woman or even grandmother loving to spend her time in and store her pearls.
Nothing like beautiful black and white photography with pops of red!
This red and white color scheme is excellently executed. Not only am I in love with the Red wall paneling and its proportion but the white and red mosaic tiles are the perfect way to ground the space and give it some refined pattern. This space also would not have been as well executed without the natural daylight to brighten up the deepness of the red.
I dont know why I love it so much but the NYC LOVE sculpture is incredible. I have a picture of me standing in it somewhere in my files… I will have to post it as soon as I find it! The Holly Hunt chair to the right of the LOVE is one of my all time fav pieces from the collection the color shape and materials are all so beautiful for both residential and hospitality spaces.
The Faena Hotel in Argentina by Philippe Starck is stunning and looks like it was created just for Valentine’s day. I love at all that beautiful white marble, mirror details and red accents. Very feminine and luxurious.
You cannot even begin to think about Valentine’s day without a touch of Valentino and his iconic Valentino Red… the perfect touch to a romantic day.
This room has a serene quality to it with beautiful well thought out touches. All the low furniture leaves room for this simple and beautifully executed wall mural.
Let me know how you spent your day and where your inspiration came from! Do you have any romantic red color scheme spaces that inspire you?
