Decorating your home for Valentine’s Day

Decorating your home for Valentine’s Day

Whether you are in a relatively new relationship or have been with your significant other for years, you can do something special for each other by turning your home into a romantic getaway for Valentine's Day this year. While the holiday is just around the corner, there are plenty of design trends you can follow to make you and your partner happy throughout February and even the rest of the year. Keeping your house warm and inviting is not something that has to be limited to holidays, but should be a part of your everyday life.

Here are a few ways to ensure your New York home is the perfect spot for the romantic holiday:

  • Flowers: No matter what time of year it is, flowers are a symbol of romance. Keep a vase of fresh flowers in the kitchen or bedroom to display your love for each other.
  • Scents: Nobody wants to think about the everyday on a holiday dedicated to romance. Remove anything that might smell, such as laundry or the dog's bed. Choose a scented candle with care, something that will give the room a fresh and inviting atmosphere. It should add to the room, but not be overwhelming.
  • Soft lighting: Nothing is more romantic than soft lighting. Regular overhead lighting can be harsh and give you the feel that you are at work or in a classroom. Get rid of the lights that exist on the ceiling and replace them with lamps spread throughout the room. This will give the room a darker and more intimate feel, the soft glow of filtered light is more appropriate for the holiday than a well-lit space.
