5 Ways to Add a Touch of Romance to Your Home
Valentine’s Day usually involves elegant dinners out, fine wine, and boxes of chocolates for your sweetheart. While these are all great ways to celebrate, we love the idea of doing something this February 14 that will add romance to your life the whole year through.
Make your home a romantic getaway where you can escape to spend quality time with your sweetheart. Here are a few ways to make your house as romantic – and unique – as your love.
1. Add seating just for two.
Sure, you can snuggle on the couch, but there’s something especially romantic about seating that will only hold you and your special someone. This large armchair offers plenty of room for both of you as you gaze into the sleek, open fireplace. For a further intimate touch, choose a warm throw in a bold accent color.
2. Create a cozy nook outdoors.
Here in Texas, we are blessed with balmy days even in mid-February. Nothing says romance like an afternoon spent outside in the gentle breeze of spring. A hanging bed adds a distinctive touch to your home and is especially appropriate for an open air breezeway or courtyard.
3. Take a bubble bath with a mood.
If your idea of a romantic evening includes a champagne bubble bath, take your night up a notch. A lit backdrop creates a dreamy mood while also giving your bathroom a stunning focal piece and a pop of color.
4. Get fresh flowers year-round.
Why save flowers for Valentine’s Day? Make space for fresh bouquets throughout your home or add cute floral elements like this built-in vase. Not only will it liven up your home—it will also encourage your special someone to bring home flowers more often.
5. Cuddle up by an elegant outdoor fire.
An elegant outdoor fireplace will lead to plenty of evenings stargazing and gazing into each other’s eyes. Of course, this type of space is also ideal for entertaining. You may want to add an extra chair or two for those occasions.
