Bring the Spring Inside
Cold, dark, and damp. For most of us residing in the Northern hemisphere, the February weather in which we find ourselves celebrating Valentine’s Day doesn’t quite create an air of romance. However, with spring just around the corner, it comes as no surprise that for this holiday, flowers are the staple gift for loved ones. If you’re looking to take it a step further this year, why not decorate with floral inspired artworks to instill the essence of spring into your interior?
Set the Mood with Sensual Colors
Turn up the heat this Valentine’s Day by infusing your home with pink and red artworks and design pieces. Not only are these warm tones sure to set the mood for your evening, but for the whole year round! Darker tones too, such as midnight blues and deep purples can help create a mysterious and romantic setting, reminding us of late nights and red wine.
Revel in the Romance
Displaying an homage to other lovers might be the perfect way to show your partner what’s on your mind… Ta Byrne‘s embracing figures in Lovers I Love You exude an enviable intimacy, while Jaime Lee‘s Hold Me and Bernard Simunovic‘s Kissed Awake awaken a sense of passion and desire!
Show Your Love Through Heart-Art
Why not let your walls speak for you this year by adorning them with the symbol of love? By displaying heart-themed artwork in your home not only do you create an atmosphere of closeness in your interior, as bare walls often create a cold environment, but you inject your space with a playful dose of heartfelt romance.

Making sure your space is equipped with a stylish snug is a love-nest essential, providing a space to cuddle up with those you love all year long.
