Aesthetic color palettes to ramp up interiors this Valentine’s Day
Every color, from muted mauves to delicate blush tones, has a distinct function in establishing an ambiance that captures the spirit of this momentous occasion.
Romance and colors have a complex relationship in which each shade adds to the emotional fabric of love. The want to bring romantic and loving colors into our homes grows stronger as Valentine’s Day draws near. Every color, from muted mauves to delicate blush tones, has a distinct function in establishing an ambiance that captures the spirit of this momentous occasion.
The founders and principal architects of Workshop for Metropolitan Architecture, Ars. Bhuvan and Gagandeep Kapila, discussed several romantic color schemes with news agency HT Lifestyle that may transform spaces into enchanted havens of love.
1. Ethereal Whites
In addition to being a color that symbolizes purity, white is a key component of a refined and elegant Valentine’s Day palette. It acts as a blank canvas for the radiance of other romantic colors. “Using white as the dominant colour for walls and larger furniture pieces, allows it to act as a backdrop that enhances the vibrancy of reds, pinks, or mauves. Consider white floral arrangements, candles, or ceramics to bring a touch of freshness and purity to love and the overall decor”, stated Gagandeep.
2. Delicate Pinks
Blushing pinks are delicate and soft, adding a delicate appeal and a sense of sweetness and innocence to interior spaces. You can embrace the softness of pink with bedding, accent walls, and decorative accents. A set of blush-toned candles on a coffee table or a pastel pink throw blanket draped over a chair, for example, create a romantic atmosphere without being overbearing. A subtle hint of refinement can also be added by combining blush pinks with different décor types.
3. Rejuvenating Mauves
Try using gentle mauves for a subtle, elegant look. The rooms are made more enigmatic and elegant by the soft, dusky purple color. “Mauve-coloured drapes, or snuggling armchairs with mellow mauve-coloured fabric can create a soothing and romantic backdrop. To enhance the luxurious feel, introduce textures like velvet or satin in mauve tones. Complementing colours such as silver or soft greys can elevate the overall aesthetic, ensuring a refined and timeless expression of romance”, mentioned Bhuvan.
