Skip the crowded restaurants and celebrate Valentine’s Day at home.

Valentine’s Day presents a perfect opportunity to infuse your home with romance and create a special ambiance for you and your partner. Instead of braving the crowded restaurants, why not transform your living space into a haven of love and intimacy? With a few quick interior design tricks, you can set the stage for a memorable celebration right at home. It’s worth putting a little extra effort in to remind your partner how important they are to you. Here are our top ten tips for dressing your home for Valentine’s Day:

Set the mood. Lighting plays such a crucial role in creating ambiance and soft light is much more flattering. Opt for warm lighting with the use of dimmer switches, lots of candles, and fairy lights. Experiment with different light sources to achieve a romantic glow throughout your home.

Embrace romantic colours. Incorporate shades of red, pink, and deep purple into your decor to evoke feelings of passion and romance. Use sensuous textures such as silk bedding, velvet throws, or rugs by the fire in these hues to instantly transform the atmosphere of a room.

Get floral. Fresh blooms not only add beauty but also infuse your home with a delightful fragrance. Choose flowers like roses, tulips, or my favourite, pink peonies, arranging them in vases or decorative containers to bring a touch of nature indoors.

Create a relaxing spa experience. Transform your bathroom into a luxurious spa retreat by lighting candles, setting out plush towels, and adding bath salts or bubble bath to the tub. Treat yourselves to a relaxing soak together and enjoy some quality pampering time.

Cosy up the seating area. Arrange your furniture to create intimate seating arrangements where you and your partner can snuggle up and enjoy each other’s company. Layer soft throws and cushions for added comfort and warmth.

Create a playlist. Music can evoke feelings and memories of good times shared with your partner and it’s key to creating the right ambience. Whether it’s the soothing tones of Luther Vandross, or the lyrics of an Ed Sheeran song that take you back to fun times you shared, curate a playlist that will make you both smile.

Set a romantic table. If you’re planning a special dinner, set a romantic table with elegant tableware, linen napkins and flickering candles. Consider adding a floral centre piece or personalised touches such as handwritten love notes or place cards to make the evening even more special.

The scent of seduction. Splash out on some signature scents from Miller Harris or Penhaligons, use soya based natural candles from St Eval or Jo Malone and create a seductive, hedonistic atmosphere.

Personalise with memories. Display photos or mementos that hold special meaning for you and your partner. Whether it’s framed photographs, love letters, or souvenirs from past adventures, these personal touches can add warmth and nostalgia to your home.

Plan meaningful activities. Set aside time for activities that you both enjoy, whether it’s cooking a romantic dinner together, watching your favourite movie, or simply stargazing from your balcony with an Old Fashioned cocktail. The key is to create moments that deepen your passion and celebrate your connection.

This Valentine’s Day, transform your home into a romantic retreat where you and your partner can celebrate your love in style. With these top ten interior design tips, you can create a warm and inviting atmosphere that sets the stage for a memorable and heartfelt celebration at home.
