HOW TO FILL YOUR ROOMS WITH LOVE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY
Home really is where the heart is.
It’s time to enjoy a love affair - with your home - and turn it into the cossetting, indulgent space that fulfils your desires.
Of course, it’s all down to your decor taste - which is as individual as your choice of partner - so you could opt for curvy furniture and sensual textures, feature racy red accessories, or take a quirky approach with comic book art.
What’s key is bringing romance to your rooms and conjuring the perfect space for snuggling as a singleton, or for flirting and wooing on Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Go on, indulge your decor passion...

White and pink are the perfect partners for a seductive scheme, and the addition of sensual textures - velvet upholstery and a sheepskin rug - will ramp up the romantic atmosphere. In a pared-back setting, subtle gilded touches (so on-trend), which hint at your feelings, have the space to star.
Serve up love on a plate
Why go public with your love? Instead, avoid crowded over-priced restaurants and enjoy the occasion in private, with an intimate meal at home. It’s worth remembering there’s a close relationship between love and food - because you’re using all the same senses; taste, touch, smell and sight. If you’re too tongue-tied for a gushing declaration of your feelings, however, you could simply let the tableware spell out it out...
Let the wall ‘Pop’ the question
Online daters always rate a GSOH (good sense of humour) as one of the top qualities needed in a prospective partner. Witty decor - from a comic-style mural, through to quirky lights and accessories - could go a long way to proving you not only see the lighter side of life, but are also uber-stylish.
Show your love with heartfelt details
It’s the little things in life that really make the difference, and just a small token will show you care. Use one tiny accessory to make the special point, or perhaps several, hung on door handles or pinned up at intervals, leading the way to that Valentine’s Day surprise...
