Does your beloved deserve a special space of their own?

Reading into romance

Does your beloved deserve a special space of their own?  Create a romantic reading corner using Resene Pohutukawa as the main wall coloured paired with a circle of Resene Dust Storm. The bold pink and red colour scheme creates a luxurious space that quashes the myth that these colours should never be combined. Pair these colours with a round chair, floral artwork and cosy blankets for a space that oozes comfort and relaxation.

Dark and mysterious

Go deep and meaningful for your bedroom decor by painting walls in sultry dark shades. While brown might not be the traditional colour of romance, the chocolates and mochas of this room are certainly cuddle-worthy.

This rich and decadent bedroom is painted in chocolate and grey hues. The wall is in Resene Monkey, the floor is in Resene Space Shuttle, the lamp base is in Resene Americano, the bedside table and DIY artwork are in Resene Kilamanjaro, the plant pot is in Resene Felix, and the vases are in Resene KabulResene Americano and Resene Monkey.  Project by Vanessa Nouwens, image by Bryce Carleton. 

Flowers and more

Show your loved one you care with a delicious spread of treats such as strawberries and chocolate served on a hand-painted platter. Pair these goodies with some pretty roses or summer blooms, a hand-painted vase for your flowers will make this gift even more personal. Our mason jar is painted in Resene Essence and dotted with Resene Gold Dust.

The flames of love

Although the colour red has been associated with love since the Roman era, romance doesn’t always need to equate to red and pink. Candles will add romance and softness to any room. These candle holders are painted using Resene Bianca and Resene Steam Roller in a marble effect.


Relationships aren't black and white but this handmade monochrome bunting is quick and easy enough to add a little love to your décor this Valentine’s Day – and cute enough to keep up all year round.
