Time to get ready for Valentine’s Day! From beautiful pillows to unique rugs, these bright red and wintry white heart-inspired decor accessories will get your home ready for the month of love!
For your bedroom
Since your bedroom is where you physically and emotionally show your love (usually, anyway!), it’s the perfect room in which to pull out the love-related decor.
Set off the love vibe by placing a couple of these rosette Euro shams (anthropologie.com, $58) on your bed or side chair. They come in a beautiful shade of red and feature attractive ruched detailing with a pompom centre.
Place this vintage-inspired repoussé heart box (potterybarn.com, $22) on your dresser to hold your favourite jewellery pieces. It’ll give your space a classy touch, and who knows? You just might receive another sparkly piece to add to it after Valentine’s Day!
Go the extra mile to really get in the mood! This rich red duvet and pillowcase set (ikea.com, $40) will surely see you using your bed a whole lot more during the month of February — and we don’t just mean for sleep!
For your kitchen
Keep the red, white and silver colour theme in the kitchen or dining room with colour-coordinated dinner and serving plates.
Whether you’re holding a Valentine’s family soiree or an intimate dinner for two, these deep red, studded charger plates (bowring.com, $3) are the way to go. They’ll make you feel as if you’re eating at a fancy restaurant (without the fancy price tag).
To serve your special meal, a simple yet bold serving tray like this red, studded, rectangular tray (bowring.com, $5) is a nice touch.
And forget about turning on the lights. This elegant beaded, egg-shaped candle holder (potterybarn.com, $26–$32) will give you all the light you need to stare across the table at the one you love this Valentine’s Day.
For the rest of the house
Don’t forget to bring the love into your little one’s room too!
You can decorate their bedroom with something as simple as red felt hearts, or you can get them something more personalized, like this oversized Valentine’s envelope chair backer (potterybarnkids.com, $24) they can put on their desk chair at home or at school.
Give them something comfy to sit on with this red mini seat (walmart.ca, $114). It will brighten up their room, and it can be used all year long, not just on Valentine’s Day.
For the guests you love so much — be they your parents, friends or colleagues — this “please don’t leave” heart rug (urbanoutfitters.com, $19) is as charming as it is stylish, making it a Valentine’s decor must-have.
