You only need one rule to set the scene for love in your home: your romantic décor should reflect your romantic personality. So take some time to think about it. Are you a leather lady, or a lacy girl? Or do you prefer the feel of satins and silks? Do you get racy with animal prints? Or soft and sensual with florals?
Choose accessories and prints that mimic your style. Damask is the perfect V-Day print because it resembles lacy lingerie. While crystal and mirrors conjure up images of diamonds and jewelry (perfect if you’re trying to drop a hint).
When it comes to colors, you can stick with the go-to’s, such as red, various shades of pink, and purple. Or, to create a sultry mood, try dusky grays, exciting metallics, antique whites, deep plum or a sensual burgundy.
Choose from highly textural fabrics, such as crushed velvet, satin, silk, leather or lace. Set them off with soft lighting and lots of candles. And most of all, don’t forget the staples of V-day: chocolates and flowers!
Whatever you do this Valentine’s Day, be sure to set a mood that is all you!
