DECORATING WITH LOVE
To all the lovers out there who fell behind prepping for Valentine’s Day, this is a last minute update that will help you celebrate your love with style. Take a moment, think of your Valentine, let yourself inspired by all the things that connect you two and you will pull off an unforgettable day for both you and your lover.
Traditionally, Valentine’s Day wraps around hearts, Cupid-shaped ornaments, flowers (mainly roses), sweets and definitely champagne. However, it’s best not getting caught up in these motifs, because the more you put your heart into it, the more unique the whole celebration gets, becoming an individual symbol for every couple.
This day is all about expressing your love and affection in your own style that brings out every bit of romance you’ve been hiding all year round. And fret not! You can decorate your love nest without going over budget – just let yourself drift while shaping the most irresistible and romantic atmosphere.
If you want to play safe, use red, white, pink or all together for your color themes. Red symbolizes love and passion, white stands for innocence, purity and sincerity and pink is the mark of happiness, respect and tenderness. Any of the above is suitable for this occasion.
However, you can always think outside the box by shaping a color theme that represents you and your partner. Irrespective of the chosen colors, your home décor must be intimate, romantic and simple, yet spectacular.
First and foremost, you don’t want to ruin the atmosphere by over lighting the place – the light should be warm, soft and pale, preferably from candles and lamp shades. Every adornment should be simple and elegant, in accordance with the dominant color chosen for the setup. Floral arrangements, rose petals, tiny symbolic gifts, famous love quotes, ribbons, garlands, wreaths, paper hearts – they all play important parts in the overall décor, making your romantic evening glow.
In addition to all the above, candles are sensual elements that can be placed almost everywhere in the décor, subtly lighting up the set.
To complement the atmosphere, wrap yourselves in a few romantic collections of background music – this will definitely emphasize your love! Remember: be romantic, caring, loving and most of all original, as your love is one of a kind. Happy Valentine’s Day!
