Once Upon a Dream


Interiors get dreamy in February

MWB Desk

As the one magical month where the year shrugs off the chill of winter and explodes into bloom, where the sunshine is pleasant and the air crisp and cool, February is the month that inspires a feeling of romance, even before and after Pohela Falgun and Valentine’s Day. If you want to capture that dreamy feeling in your décor, here are five ways to do it.

Color me intrigued

You’ve heard of dopamine dressing. Now meet dopamine design, one that captures the essence of fantasy through colors. Opt for a whimsical palette that includes soft pastels and muted tones – think about cotton candy hues of pinks, purples, greens, and blues that Wes Anderson uses in his films. Don’t be afraid to experiment with unconventional color combinations; the more fantastical the better.

The old and new

Transport your space into the realms of your beloved fairytale by mixing and matching styles, and employing distressed finishes and muted upholsteries to add an elegant touch to modern pieces.

Textural layering, enchanting accessories, and floral accents invite you to craft a living space that embodies the magic and romance of classic fairytales. Transform your space into a haven where every element tells a story, allowing imagination to take center stage

Feels like a fantasy

To bring your fantasy design to life, incorporating layered textures can add depth to the room. Combine soft, muted fabrics with rustic textures such as distressed wood and iron. Fluffy rugs, patterned throw pillows, and sheer curtains add a sense of luxury, elevating a shabby chic style into storybook splendor.

Say it with flowers

Unleash the allure of florals and botanical charm to transform your space into a dreamscape. Floral wallpaper or murals can create a more organic charm to a modern room. Blooming flowers or potted plants bring life and color to your space.

Look at this stuff. Isn’t it neat?

To tie in all the elements for that wow finish, tap into your inner magpie to furnish your space with whimsical accents and accessories. Think vintage mirrors and dreamy wall art. Throw in some pops of gold or silver in your fittings for the right dose of sparkle.
