Give your home a dose of playful romance with fun furnishings and decor picks. Decorating your home for Valentine’s Day can be so much fun! Whether it’s a cute toss pillow or a Valentine’s mantel, spreading the love around your home can be easy.
A vibrant red wreath will brighten your entrance, while a floral accent pillow can be tossed onto a chair or sofa for added sweetness. Hanging a garland of fairy lights makes a room feel more romantic, coupled with candles, flowers and delectable desserts can make for the perfect Valentine’s setting.
Pretty in Pinks and Reds
Red is the colour of passion. It will not only make your space look vibrant but also warm. But if you prefer a delicate color that is sweet, playful and tender, then pink is the way to go. You won’t need to drown your house in pinks and reds, but can subtly include these colours into your home by using soft furnishings.

When Two is Better Than One
The great thing about pairs is that they immediately bring order to a space. When you create symmetry in a space, you create a polished, impactful look that is both soothing and dramatic. You can do easily pair up arm chairs, bookcases, or accent artworks to bring that symmetry into your home.
