Romancing Your Home
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but why limit the romantic celebration to one day a year? You can keep your home charming, welcoming and classy all year long with minimal effort. Colors, lighting, texture, scent and decor make all the difference when it comes to creating a mood in any given room. The beauty of it is you’re the artist! If you’re ready for a quick and alluring home makeover, we have some advice for you.
Comfort is Key
Soft feather down pillows, cozy shag rugs, faux fur accents and cotton throws will have you feeling like you’re on cloud nine. Texture can quickly take any living room, sunroom or bedroom from 1 to 100 on the snug scale. Want to see for yourself? Check out this ultra chic throw cover — the perfect accent for your sofa or bed.
Lighting Sets the Mood
When it comes to creating an atmosphere, lighting is one of the most important things you have at your disposal. Whether you opt for dimmers, soft table lamps, candles or a string of clear lights tangled in a Mason jar, lighting is your secret weapon. Ditch the overhead for a night, and set your house aglow with glimmering candlelight instead. Have a fireplace? Crackling flames are the perfect finishing touch.
When you’re picking candles, keep an eye out for inviting scents such as rose, vanilla, jasmine, cinnamon and lavender. Wine red, plum, white and pale pink are all lovely Valentine’s Day color choices.
When it comes to decor, a little pop can go a long way. Fill a vase with fresh roses and place it in your living room, or pepper small accents around the house, such as scarlet throw pillows and lampshades. Create a centerpiece on your dining room table by placing floating candles in assorted water-filled wine glasses. The possibilities are endless!
