This month there’s magic in the air, romance everywhere and so much love to share! But beyond all the red hearts and boxes of chocolates, romantic interior design is a warm, cozy and attractive style that can last all year long!
If you’re hosting a get together on Valentine’s Day and want to set the mood at home without coming across too cheesy, or breaking your budget on décor, we’ve got a few ideas to consider.
They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. And in most homes, it is. Not just because it’s the source of all meals, but it has become an area where friends and family can gather for an informal catch-up and a glass of wine.
This area needs to stay tidy, so buy a pack of pink or red wrapped chocolates or sweets and empty them into a clear glass vase or jar and place it in the centre of your kitchen table. This will not only look attractive, but ensures that you’re unlikely to have to cook alone! A fresh bunch of pink, red or white roses in a wine bucket will add the ultimate touch of class.

Entertain al fresco this year – a plain pink or white table cloth with accent pink and white polka dot napkins adds a fresh and fun feel to the occasion. Add tea light candles, and dried petals around a small arrangement of flowers to make for a stylish centrepieces to finish off your table.
If you’re really going all-out, a few strings of fairy lights and a couple of pink cushions will really complete the theme. Remember that a patio awning is so convenient as the weather is difficult to predict. Windovert offer a range of patio blinds and awning options that will suit any space.
And lastly, the bathroom. Scented candles placed in the corners of the bathroom provide a romantic ambience, as well as a lovely fragrance. A few rose petals on the edge of the basin and a pink soap or hand wash will definitely leave your guests impressed.
Good luck. And Happy Valentine’s Day!
