Bring Nature In: Rosy Palette |Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

Peony is the type of flower that will steal the scene with its luxurious blooms and velvety foliage. It is a type of herbaceous with a hard woody pencil like stem. It doesn’t grow more than 3-1/2 to 4 feet tall, it likes cooler climates and afternoon sun with plenty of water. It blooms in shades of lavender, pink, copper, yellow and cream. (Click on each photo to view it larger).


Taking inspiration from my peony photograph, I thought its colors are perfect for a feminine interior. I see this rosy palette in a home office, a sitting room, or a girl bedroom.
Rosy colors activate brain frontal lobe activities, generally associated with reasoning, planning, decision-making and problem-solving, but rosy colors also affect the way you see yourself in a positive way. Rosy colors are calming, thus are perfect in rooms where thinking is required.

Bring your nature in and try some rosy colors in the décor. How does black enters this soft palette? Well, aside from being the natural background of my photo, that’s what my camera saw, black functions as grounding color and it can be introduced in a small amount, perhaps in the form of lampshades only.

I amuse myself with nature photography I take here and there, some are from my garden and some are not. Once a week, I will come up with a new color scheme based on my photographs of flowers and propose it for interiors. It will be a new series called Bring Nature In. If you need help in finding the right colors, I am here ready to help with my online services. Ciao,
