Valentine’s Day Home Design Inspiration

The River North Design District (RNDD) and our members are celebrating Valentine’s Day all month long. 💕

Pink and Red Home Designs

In honor of this sweet holiday, we are featuring some of our favorite pink and red interiors and products we are currently crushing on from our RNDD Members. Take a little inspiration from blushing pinks and rich reds to inspire your own Valentine’s Day home decor.

The Bonnie to Your Clyde

Let Ligne Roset introduce you to the most notorious coupling of their collection: Bonnie & Clyde. Let their love story inspire your design desires this Valentines Day. When design icon Pierre Paulin created Bonnie, he instilled her with more than French je ne sais quoi: striking in terms of comfort, both aesthetic and physical, she hugs the lines of the human body fiercely. Clyde may come off as steely at first, but designers Numéro111 had Valentines in mind when they created him: V-shaped supports lift the mesh steel structure.

A Bold Pop of Pink on the Floor

A bold pop of pink in the rug and design accents bring the warmth of Valentine’s Day to this chic and modern kitchen not just in February, but all year round. The rug is from cutting-edge and award-winning designer Jürgen Dahlmanns of RUG STAR and is sold exclusively at Oscar Isberian Rugs.

Romantic Art for the Home

Celadon Art — available through Casa Bella — brings the romance with their Parisienne Page Series. A quirky assortment of historical pages from French textbooks and title pages. Each is overlaid with contrasting colorful illustrations of rabbits, statuary, figures, and energetic abstracts and framed in a simple, elegant silver moulding.

Good Vibrations: Red Rugs

Red is passionate, assertive and courageous. It’s like that one shade of lipstick that looks good on everyone. The same is true with this “Rouge Vibrations” bright red rug from Organic Looms. It is a brave yet romantic color choice that can look good in any space.
The rug comes in both 8×10 and 9×12 and is made of Wool/Sari Silk from India.

Unexpected Colors in the Kitchen

Using color in unexpected places like appliances and cabinets, is a fun way to incorporate a bold statement and make a kitchen truly unique. This red kitchen, built by Xced Design Build, brings a little extra love to the heart of the home with bold red cabinets.

Breakfast for Two


What could be sweeter than starting your Valentine’s Day with an intimate breakfast for two? We love the idea of home-made pancakes and coffee, shoulder to shoulder, at this quaint little banquette. Making plans for an evening out while the sun beams in the window…A Valentine’s floral as the centerpiece on the table, nestled on two soft blush velvet chairs. Mia Rao Design made this idea a sweet reality in this beautiful breakfast nook.

Infuse Some Love into Rooms that Need it

The laundry room isn’t typically a place that we love to visit in our home. It’s associated with mundane chores and extra work. Scott Dresner of Dresner Design found a way to make this otherwise dull space into a bright and cheerful room where anyone would be happy to be. With bold, glossy red cabinets, he was able to infuse some love and life into one of the rooms in the home that needs it most.


💕 Happy Valentine’s Day! 💕
