Love is in the air! Whether you will be spending this hallmark holiday doing something special with your significant other, or you and have a romantic reservation for one in front of your TV complete with heart shaped pizza and ice cream, who doesn't love an excuse to indulge themselves and eat as much candy and chocolate as they please!
If your hibernation has you feeling like it’s been the longest winter ever, you aren't alone! No matter what your relationship status is, this "holiday" gives you the perfect excuse to add fun pops of colour to your décor and bring some love into your home. As the snow somehow continues to accumulate outside, there is no better remedy to cure your winter blues than a mini indoor make over.
Just because Valentine's day may only last for 24 hours, it doesn't mean your décor should. So skip the balloons, dollar store streamers and heart shaped banners, and up your game with lasting modern décor you'll love all year round.
Wall décor is an easy way to add love-themed pieces to your space. Graphic prints in heart shapes are great statement pieces and will bring a pulse to your décor. Keep in mind that although traditional Valentine's day colours tend to stick to reds and pinks, don’t restrict yourself to this palette. Love is colour blind, so select artwork that will work well with your space's existing décor scheme. We are also seeing a trend in word art, making love quotes and phrases a fitting décor element. And if you are an avid DIYer, framing a greeting card from a loved one, or a favourite poem or song lyrics can bring a nice personal touch to your décor.
We all have a soft spot for flowers. Whether received as a gift or picked up personally from your local florist, flower arrangements will bring that automatic feeling of "amour" to your space. Roses are a classic Valentine's symbol, but any floral will do the job. Tulips are fun choice and will transition nicely to spring décor, not that we are already counting down the days...
Nothing screams romance louder than dim lighting and lit candles. While winter roars outside, get cozy indoors with the comforting warmth you'll feel by candle light. Try incorporating simple tea lights in mason jars, get a 3-wick candle of your favourite scent, or for those that love a touch of vintage, incorporate antique oil lamps for the ideal Nicolas Sparks movie night atmosphere.
