Pink and red
Deck out your home with some pretty pink and
red accents just in time for February 14.
Mason jar candle
Line a mantel or windowsill with a few of these charming soy wax candles housed in Mason jars (Urban Outfitters, $20). Not only will they be ideal for Valentine’s Day, you can incorporate them into your decor all winter to warm up your space.
Set your Valentine’s Day table with some glazed ceramic dinnerware in a vibrant shade of red (West Elm, $40 to $48). Add a white tablecloth and a simple floral centerpiece that features subtle pops of pink for the ultimate romantic table.
A grouping of several of these bright pink vases, each holding a single white or yellow bloom, would make for a simple yet elegant addition to your Valentine’s decor (Z Gallerie, $5).
We were instantly intrigued by this looping candleholder in a Valentine’s Day-ready shade of red (Crate & Barrel, $30 to $50). The unique looping shape adds a playful twist to how you display your candles.
Pick up a few of these pretty pink photo frames to display pictures of you and your sweetie (Anthropologie, $28). The zigzagging chevron pattern continues to be popular, and the chic shade of pink is perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Lace vanity tray
Clutter can take over a room if you let it. Keep smaller items like jewelry, keys, pens and lip gloss under control with the help of a lace vanity tray (Urban Outfitters, $19). This one also happens to make an ideal accent for February 14.
In the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, replace your usual bookends with these in bold fuchsia that spell out “love” (PB Teen, $49).
Enhance any neutral couch or chair and get your space ready for February 14 with the help of some decorative pillows in a rich shade of red (Crate & Barrel, $35). These pillows would look especially good on a white or gray sofa.
Chain lock throw
Snuggle with your Valentine under this cozy throw in the perfect shade of pink (West Elm, $69). The bright color livens up a room and the soft texture makes for the ideal way to stay warm on a cold night.
Give your kitchen counter a colorful boost by displaying this bold red platter (CB2, $15). Then, on Valentine’s Day (if you’re having dinner at home), you can use it to serve the main course or dessert.
