If you are an avid lover of home décor seeking to add a romantic, feminine touch to your house or apartment, the colors you use on your walls are essential. Not only do painted walls make a room seem more inviting and visually pleasing, painted walls also help to create a foundation to base the rest of your decorating on. Here are several different colors to consider painting your walls for a romantic, feminine look.
Pink is often considered one of the most truly feminine colors, so it is only natural to include this color in your romantic home décor. When painting your walls pink, a soft shade is preferable over a richer, more vibrant hue. Not only is a soft pink more subtle and romantic, it is also more gender neutral and easy to decorate with. Soft pink walls can easily be accented with antique ivory or gold.
If you are seeking a truly gender neutral color for your romantic decorating, French blue is the perfect choice. French blue is a gray-tones shade that is almost creamy in appearance and is very rich. This color will create a lovely feminine look and is perfect if you are using a theme for your decorating, such as shabby chic or French provincial. French blue walls will coordinate well with stark white, canary yellow or gold.
Red is generally considered a seductive color, making it a great choice to use in romantic decorating. A rich shade of wine red is highly feminine and mature. When painting walls red, it is best to consider the environment of the room as color plays an imperative role in your mood. For example, wine red is not an appropriate choice for a bedroom as it is may be too visually stimulating and can cause problems with your sleep schedule, but it is perfect for a dining room as it is known to stimulate hunger. If you are unsure about using such a bold color in your decorating, consider painting only one wall in the room wine red to act as an accent wall.
A pale shade of sage green is another gender neutral color to consider using in your romantic, feminine decorating. Sage green is also an easy color to use on your walls when decorating to a theme. This color is great for garden themed rooms and Victorian themed rooms. Sage green coordinates beautifully with many other romantic colors, such as marigold, mauve, light purple and pale blue.
If you are not ready to make a transition to painting your walls a bright, obvious color, keep it subtle by updating your walls with an off-shade of white such as antique ivory. This creamy, yellow-toned color is highly romantic and feminine and will give your walls more personality than stark white.
