This Valentine’s Day, it’s time to treat yourself. Break out the fine china and create an in-home spa sanctuary. Change your chargers to red, add some extra candles to your mantle, embrace more of what you love, and let go of what you don’t!
Most of us have fond memories of elementary school exchanges of heart-shaped cookies on white doilies, precious homemade cards, and those fortune-telling conversation heart candies. Valentine’s Day is about accepting and showing affection in a variety of creative ways. It’s about declaring your love for whomever, or whatever, you desire.

This year it’s time to commit to kissing your drab décor goodbye and start living like a queen. Show some adoration for yourself by spicing up your spaces!
Whether your humble abode is dressed in rustic designs or the most modern of furnishings, a mid-winter revamping around this loving holiday can do wonders for your spirit.
If your strongest sense is touch, pull out the plush fabrics, the velvets and silks, and wrap yourself up in luxury. You may not need a room as bold as this one, but the mixing of multiple tactile accessories – especially in our favorite Valentine-worthy colors of Samba and Vivacious – can warm up a room instantly.
