It seems that Valentine's Day home decor can go one of two ways - over the top or not at all.  If you are still weary from putting away all of your Christmas decorations, but want to add a little love to your home for Valentine's Day, here are a few easy decorating tips.

Decide Where to Decorate

If decorating your entire house for Valentine's Day feels overwhelming, chose one area to create a holiday vignette such as your fireplace mantle, foyer, kitchen island, or front porch.  We favor the front porch because what's better than welcoming your family and guests with signs of love?

You can carry touches of Valentine's Day throughout your home by adding a hand towel to your guest bath, displaying colorful conversation hearts or candy in glass apothecary jars or proudly stringing your children's paper heart garland across a window or mantle.   We love this vintage pop of holiday charm from Maison de Cinq!

Red or Pink?

What color do you see as Valentine's Day?  With so many shades of red and pink to choose from it can be hard to decide.  Traditionalists may only see Valentine's Day in colors of red and white.  There is an advantage to this because many times you can carry over some of your red accents from Christmas such as decorative pillows, red buffalo check throw blankets, and red lanterns.  Red is bold and striking.  Red makes a statement and is the ulitimate pop of color.  You may already have red in your home in which Valentine's Day decor is a natural fit.  We get this! We're feeling all the love of red with Metroflor's Deja New Lucky Red luxury vinyl floors!  This floor would be so fun in a small space such as a foyer, kids' bathroom, or laundry room. 

Pink is fantastic because they are so many shades that work for Valentine's Day. From blush to fushia, pink provides a broad Valentine's Day palette.  We love how pink coordinates with gold or black and white accents.  Even something as simple as  a vase of pink flowers and gold mercury glass votive would add Valentine's Day flavor to your space.  
Of course, there is always the option to mix reds and pinks together for the optimum Valentine's look!  Be sure to balance the colors with a neutral such as white, cream, or silver.  We love this versatile tray from Birch Lane which works for any holiday decor. 

Last Minute Decorating

If Valentine's Day came upon you quickly and you haven't had the chance to decorate, there is still time to add sweet touches to your home.  A fantastic way to surprise your family or loved ones on Valentine's Day is to create a festive tablescape on your kitchen or dining room table.  Suddenly, the everyday meal becomes something special on Valentine's Day!  Add personalized, sweet touches to let them know they are loved - and what you love about them - with a handwritten card at each place setting.  Bring out the fine china and silverware regardless if you are serving filet mignon or spaghetti!  We love this tablescape from Randi Garrett Design for its fun Queen of Hearts theme.
