Over at The Kitchn, they're doing what we're doing, only with meals: Valentine's Day Contest! Inspire a Dreamy Meal. They're posting reader's inspirations for a special Valentine's menu. We thought we'd see if we could pair one of our romantic inspired bedrooms with one of their reader submitted meals. This is what we came up with...

Dreamy Meal for Valentine's: Nicole Mari's Impressionist Picnic

Nicole Mari was inspired by this John Singer Sargent painting, a romantic Impressionist scene of leisurely sharing a moment in the game of love. The soft palette of colours, play of light and shadow and the ying-yang composition create a balanced scene of romance at its most gentle. Paired with a delicious picnic menu of Fig-Sesame Jam, Roast Chicken Legs With Lemon And Thyme, and Fudgy Hazelnut Brownies With Marbled Chocolate Glaze, Nicole Mari's inspirations create a seductive impression.

Romantic Bedroom Week: Diahn's Cozy Comfort

Diahn of North Hollywood sent in a photo of a romantic and inviting bedroom that shares some of the same characteristics as Nicole Mari's choices in food and art. Both share the same rich and earthy colours, the soft diffusion of light, and the room creates the impression that time rolls just a little slower inside its four walls.
