Kelly Behun: Soho Penthouse

Call me a bit of a Scrooge, but I've never really been much of one for Valentine's Day. While I love the idea of a day intended to reflect on and celebrate the ones we love, the mass commercialization of the holiday has put me off a bit. That being said, I'm definitely a romantic at heart, and while I don't really like the notion of forced romance, we all could definitely use a little more in our daily lives and this day is perhaps a good reminder of this. So today, rather than force the issue, I thought I'd share an interior for those looking for more of a 'Valentines-Lite' approach.

The notion of 'romantic interiors' always conjures up images of a warm, luxurious atmosphere. While I may not be one to go all out, little hints of romance really brighten the everyday, show consideration and of course, often include flowers. I think this Soho Penthouse designed by Kelly Behun and Natasha Ziff has the perfect understated modern romantic feel. Cool, clean and contemporary with just a few little hints of luxurious textures (plush throws and velvet upholstery), pretty floral arrangements (always love the elegance and purity of white roses) and of course, an obligatory dash of red. Throw in a box of chocolates and that would be all I need for the perfect romantic atmosphere.

P.S. As you can probably tell, I'm a little besotted with designer Kelly Behun's beautiful work at the moment, so couldn't resist sharing another one of her stunning spaces.
See more of her work here, and at her website.

When I grow up I want to own extra long couches. A pain in the neck to move but they just look so good.
