With pretty pastels and sweet vintage touches, it’s no surprise that romantic style has gained so much popularity in recent years. Bridging the gap between old and new, romantic spaces welcome serenity and relaxation with feminine accents throughout. Below, we’ve listed some essential elements of this sought-after style so you can bring it into your own home! And if you’re looking for more romantic style, be sure to take a peek at our new Romantic Cottage special issue!
A romantic space is no place for big and bold colors and patterns. Use palettes that consist of neutrals and pastels, like pale pink, antique white, and light blue.
Florals are a staple in romantic style! Whether styling with actual bouquets or introducing floral patterns through fabric choices, using these delicate beauties adds a feminine touch.
Romantic style usually consists of a mix of old and new items, but you can really bring in the charm with a few vintage elements.
It’s all about the little details when it comes to romantic style. Don’t overlook any space! Layer linens and lace and old and new pieces to create a vignette that’s the essence of romantic style.
Focus on Lighting
From crystal-laden chandeliers to barely-there candlelight, lighting plays a key role in creating a romantic space. Pay attention to fixtures in your room and perhaps opt for no fixtures, choosing to use lamps or a string of lights instead.
