Parisian Romance – No place says romance like Paris, France.  The Parisian influence on interiors epitomizes romance.  Light-filled rooms decked in lush fabrics, curvaceous furnishings, gilded accents and topped with shimmering crystal chandeliers are what Parisian interiors are all about.  Rich moldings enhance these romantic spaces, lending unique architectural nuance to each interior.

Elegant Romance – Elegance speaks to romance in a refined way.  Soft whispers of gilded surfaces, a sophisticated muted palette, comfortable traditional furnishings with French flair, and rich moldings enhance the elegance.  Soft lighting is supplied with ornate chandeliers and wall sconces.  When you enter these rooms, the romance is palpable.

The Romantic Details – In the romantic interior, details set the scene.  Damask wallpaper, frilly pillows with feather trim and tufting, romantic settees upholstered in plush velvet or silk, fresh flowers and delicate side tables all enhance the romantic interior.  The color pink inspires romance, as does intricately carved and curved furnishings.

Soft Colors, Beautiful Furnishings –  A soft color palette and lush furnishings for snuggling are the epitome of romantic interior design style.  Soft pastels, creamy off-white, or clean white with vintage accents make for a romantic aesthetic.  Pink blush walls with accents of amethyst give a sophisticated edge to the romantic room when paired with shimmering metallic surfaces.

The View – A setting sun over the water is truly romantic, and when your view is like this the need for accessorizing is secondary.  A neutral palette and simple lines enhance this romantic interior, letting the view become the focal point.
