If you’re decorating to bring some romance into your home, then focus traditional gestures of love. Try to add more candles to your home and place them in positions of prominence.
A slew of tapers or tea lights on tables and mantles flicker delightfully and create a sense of cozy comfort. Luxurious red blankets and throw pillows bring a sense of decadence and the softer they are the more fun it is to snuggle up with them.
Flowers serve a similar purpose by bringing an aromatic sense of romance to the home and seem like a luxury in the dead of winter.
If you’re looking for real romantic inspiration, go with a Victorian style as you decorate for Valentine’s day. Small, busy hearts and floral patterns give your home a turn of the century Victorian style. Add sweet little bows and you’ve got a real sense of old fashioned romance. This decorating style is so timeless than you can use it no matter what the season.

If you’re thinking that adding some Valentine’s decorations to your home might bring a little fun and warmth into the house then its time to get whimsical rather than romantic.
Use Valentine’s Day cards to create garland to stream around the house. If you don’t have any old Valentine’s Day cards to use or if you don’t’ want to buy any, then create ribbons of construction paper hearts to use as garland.
Add more hearts by purchasing conversation hearts in bulk and filling jars throughout the house with these confections. Create a little sparkle by adding twinkle lights in red, white, or pink to your home during this holiday season to set a mood but also bring in a little fun and excitement.
If you’ve got kids, let them help you decorate and come up with their own ideas for whimsical Valentine’s Day decorations. It’s a time for fun and love for everyone in your household.
