Valentine's Day decor brings warmth and love into your home during the dead of winter.
There's no doubt that winter can be a hard time for anyone, but it can be especially difficult for those of us who live in colder climates. It gets dark early and stays dark until late, and the cold wind can make your skin feel like sandpaper. The good news is that there are some simple strategies you can use to brighten up your home during this dreary time of year—Valentine's Day decor brings warmth and love into your home during the dead of winter. We know Valentine's Day is a short holiday typically geared towards lovers. We also know Valentine's Day comes on the heels of just putting away all your Christmas decor. But please don't miss out on the opportunity to facilitate an atmosphere overflowing with love. Valentine's day decor creates a cozy home for your loved ones, so they feel safe, comfortable and happy in their own home. The best part is Valentine's Day decorations don't have to be time consuming to be elegant.
You want your home to look inviting, not overwhelming.
The secret to creating a Valentine's day decor that looks good and is still functional is to keep it simple. Use neutral colors like red and pink, and add some rose petals where you can. You don't want to overdo it—you want your home to look inviting, not overwhelming. It can be as easy as a Valentine's Day sign hung above the sofa with some DIY decor as accents on the end tables. Tailor Made Rooms has a lovely collection of Valentine's Day canvas wall art you can choose from.

Flowers + candles add color and life to an otherwise drab winter.
Another way to decorate your house for Valentine's Day is by adding some flowers to your space—even fake ones will do! They'll add color and life to an otherwise drab winter.
Create more warmth and light with candles throughout the house. You'll need to find ones that don't drip wax on everything or smoke too much (ask your local candle shop if they have any recommendations). The point is: get some light into your house so it doesn't feel as dark as it does right now. If you have little kids at home you can use faux candles in place of real burning candles.
Valentine's Day is a great opportunity to brighten up your home and create a cozy, sweet atmosphere for your loved ones.
