Roses are red, violets are blue. I love to decorate my house. How about you?

Once again, February is here and with it, the celebration of Valentines. During the first couple of weeks of the month, our senses were stimulated with a flood of imagines enticing us to find romantic words, flowers, chocolates and the colors red and pink extremely appealing.

Valentine's day represents the love of a couple, the unity of friendship, the spreading of love... All wonderful causes! But also, causes that should be acknowledged and celebrated not only February 14th but everyday of every month of every year...Right?

I don't know if valentine's day is a significant day for you or not. If it is, I hope you got pampered on Tuesday and felt very special. Ans if it is not, I hope you enjoy the "just because" type of gifts on any given day. But, whatever the case, I thought it might be fun to extrapolate Valentines to home decor!

When I think of Valentines, I feel like using the following elements in my ornamentation:

1. The color red: red is the color of fire and blood. It is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate and raises blood pressure.

2. The color pink: pink is a delicate color that means sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tender. It is associated with bubble gum, flowers, babies, little girls, cotton candy, and sweetness. The color pink is the color of the universal love of oneself and of others.

3. Soft fabrics: gentle textiles like sheepskins rugs, velvet pillows, wool throw blankets say cuddles and comfort to me.

4. Candles, glass details and brass elements add texture, spark and romanticism.

5. Flowers. Flowers are the perfect touch to create beauty and warmth. They add freshness and a welcoming sensation to your home.

6. Pictures. Nothing says "love" better than pictures beautifully displayed of your loved ones.

Combine all these elements and you will find results like these!

I have to say, I think decorating Valentine's style is lovely. Don't you? Let out the romantic in you and display it in your home. The result will be darling! :)
