Each person interprets romantic style in a unique way. To me, the look is simply not complete without my five favorite essentials!
1. Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers instantly add warmth and charm to your home. Think outside the nightstand and dining-room-table box. I love to add them in the bathrooms, on the window sill in the kitchen and even on the outdoor tables.
2. Barely Blushing
Barely-there blush and shades of creams and whites are perfect ways to add a bit of romantic style. Your colors don’t have to be oversaturated to make a statement. Think subtle and simple for big impact.
3. The Midas Touch
I always love a bit of gold mixed in to create a romantic, elegant feeling. Adding just a touch of gold on the mantel or table is all you need to bring a bit of drama.
4. A Little Bit of Bling
I am a big believer in the power of chandeliers—and those crystals and pretty little details add instant sophistication and romance to a room.
5. Something with a Story
Incorporate something with pretty patina. A gilded finish on the frame. A carved vintage chair covered in white linen—anything with a bit of history adds romance and character to a room. Plus, it gives you something to talk about when you have guests.
