Stunning valentine’s day decor is an underused strategy for creating that perfect moment. People often get caught up in getting the best gift or updating social media. However, updating your home with some Valentine’s day decorations can make the occasion truly special. Keep reading to find up how you can create the perfect love-filled atmosphere in your house.
Choosing the right colors
Even though this sounds like common sense, color plays such a huge role in emotions that it’s worth enforcing. The strongest color for passion is red, obviously, but pink and purple are also great if you want some uniqueness. You want to use warm colors, but avoid bright colors like yellow and orange. Rather than a romantic scene, those colors will make your setting feel like a birthday party.
For contrast, you can use white, black, or brown. Pink and brown is an incredible combination that works well. Try to make your large decors one of the main colors (red, pink, purple) and the small decors a contrasting color. Normally, I would recommend the opposite because the main colors have a lot more energy and really catch a person’s attention. However, for Valentine’s Day decor, that’s the whole idea!
Go wild with typography
When it comes to Valentine’s day decor don’t be afraid to let the decorations do the speaking. Typography on throw pillows, wall art, blocks, and papers do wonders for setting the mood. Even stuffed animals holding hearts with single words like “Love” make great additions.
The power of suggestion is a useful tactic just like colors and few things are more suggestive than words. By placing typography around sparingly (don’t create mounds of text) you can let people read the atmosphere before they feel it.
Bring out the lights
Special lighting isn’t just for Christmas. Valentine’s Day decor without lighting is incomplete. Of course, you aren’t going to decorate the entire house, but small simple lights that add a romantic glow can make a big difference. Even a candle at the table or bedside can fulfill this purpose. Not only are lights naturally intriguing but they can also serve to complement the colors of your decor once the main lights are turned off
Lights like the one above or even smaller are all it takes to make a dramatic impact. They also work for multiple occasions, providing lasting value. If you never had your own candlelight dinner, you need to place it on your todo list immediately.
Extra: Music and Scents
Although not considered decorations, music and scent consideration is a way to bring all your efforts home. If you are transforming your space with Valentine’s day decor, a soft song and warm-scent can make it all come together. For scents, everyone has their preference, but I like cinnamon and vanilla combinations using aromatherapy oils. It’s a bold and sweet smell that really makes the day feel special. I recommend experimenting with aromatherapy and finding your favorite scents for every unique occasion.
There are your help Valentine’s day decor tips. Hopefully, my suggestions were able to be of some use. Just remember not to lose yourself and become too attached to how your space looks. The most important part about Valentine’s day isn’t your decor and even if doesn’t look as good as you hoped, it isn’t that important. It’s the thought and effort that matters.
