Romantic Style in the Nursery

February is the perfect month to honor romantic style. This style embraces the softer side of design and alludes to fairy tales, dreamy garden parties and even Romeo and Juliet. No two interpretations of romantic style are alike. Romance, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

Small luxuries with romantic details recall old-style femininity, like a Venetian mirror or a lush rug.

Shying away from neutrals, the romantic color palette consists of gem-like tones of blushing rose, lilac, sky blues and greens. Marry garden-inspired greens with ivory or quiet blues or muted whites.

The fabrics found in romantic style are linen, velvet and cashmere. It is important to keep things practical and mix in some casual style. Durable fabrics like cottons help create a room where function and luxury can coexist.

Would you use the romantic style in your child’s room?

  • Camila

    Yes, indeed, romance is pretty subjective. A romantic feel or look for one person may not be so for another.

  • Zoe Alexander

    Beautifully presented Annette! Love the soft tones!

    How about you? What’s your idea of a romantic style?

  • Alison Mar

    In my case, romantic style is something I associate with old-world charm. Anything Victorian. Or Old English. Anything that gives off that nostalgic feel.

  • Julie

    When you say romantic style, what comes to my mind are decoupage art, stained glass, crystals, florals, delicate china, satin and silk.

  • Jillian Scotts

    My idea of what’s romantic is kinda literal: HEARTS! lol

  • Andrea Lowe

    For me, romantic means elegant and classy or delicate and sweet.
