Black and Berry Valentine's Inspiration | Camille Styles

Three days until the 14th, and this year I’m feeling a Valentine’s palette that’s unmistakably romantic. And since these days I can’t get enough of a dark and moody aesthetic, I thought I’d opt for a look that’s amorous without being typically red and pink. So I turned to this selection of gorgeous images in deep shades of burgundy and oxblood, all set against a black and slate backdrop — from decadent berry desserts to twinkling textiles, this pairing is the ultimate display of affection. Be sure to keep these colors in mind when planning your Valentine’s Day dinner, desserts or flowers, and stay tuned for more love-themed goodness in these few days leading up to Thursday!

  3. So refreshing to see a Valentine’s palette that is not pink or red!! Not that I don’t like pink or red, I do, but this time of year it’s overload! Those berry pancakes look ah.mazing btw – great find and a lovely selection of complimentary images.

      Thank you, Louisa! I’m definitely on the same page as you — Valentine’s Day is so much more than pink & red hearts! It certainly doesn’t get more seductive than those gorgeous berry pancakes… that one image actually inspired this entire board!

  4. I am in love with this palette. The sequin dress is everything in lovely hot pink

  6. […] doesn’t have to be bright and poppy, either. In fact, we love the juxtaposition of moody makeup and spring flowers, […]
