Our Big Book of 50 Valentine's Day Decorating Ideas
Wear your heart on a wall, table, bed, bench, pillow, shelf or shade
Pink, red, hearts: It’s February, and l’amour is officially in the air. If you’re looking for a way to bring a little extra love into your home for the holiday, we have you covered. We tapped Houzz users and bloggers from around the web to find out how they incorporate a little Valentine’s cheer into their style. Read on for their sweet solutions for loving up your interiors.
Nothing says lovin' like a giant heart print... that literally says LOVE inside.
Blogger Veronika of A Few Things from My Life has a whole wall of her home devoted to heart-inspired art.
She makes the pretty pieces herself.
Go all out at dinner with a puff-ball bouquets of pink carnations and fuchsia accents.
They look fine as-is, but with a few pictures of loved ones clipped on, it's a more special gesture.
The chrysanthemum's bursting shape, like these from Marlous at Planet Fur, seems appropriately celebratory for February 14.
For a quick Valentine's fix, switch up your bed linens for some in shades of pinks and reds, as shown here by Atypical Type A.
I love that the back of this seat mimics the shapes in the artwork above.
I'm equally enamored of the Jonathan Adler pillow hiding on the banquette seat of this dining room.
Italian blogger Groovy Elisa went for a grand gesture in the kitchen with this heart-emblazoned shade.
But a smaller one offers a sweet effect too.
The little heart candleholder on the desk of Kay from KayLovesVintage picks up on the other red accents in the room.
There are lots of fun colors in this bedroom, and a happy message scrolled on the pillows of each bed.
Layla from The Lettered Cottage shared this rosy red spot — the perfect location for typing a love letter.
Not a writer? Try reading a few heartfelt poems from a professional author instead.
Other Houzz users took the same approach by writing it out in big, bold letters.
Make your feelings known for your city of choice.
Sometimes it's not so much a word as a feeling. This rooms feel all sorts of love-y thanks to rich red accents.
This modern kitchen proves that pink and red do not necessarily have to equal ultra-feminine.
... Nor does a wall of hearts.
Of course if you want to go girlie-glam, the Vintage Laundress shows that pink and red are a great place to start.
Pink drum pendants provide a warm glow in this restaurant design.
Any romantic gestures captured on film deserve a frame and front-and-center placement.
Nothing says Valentine's quite like flowers...
Be they real...
... Or just inspired by the real thing.
Blossoming walls and a red stair runner feel right for February, but are also perfectly pretty for all year long.
A few stenciled hearts can make quite a major statement, as on this wall by Design Hole.
Should the weather cooperate, a homemade meal in the garden would be a Valentine's treat I'd certainly love.
