With Valentine’s Day right around the corner everyone is in search of a little bit of romance—and what better way to find it than in the comfort of your own home! Whether you have a private abode or live with loved ones, a home with romantic flair can be a warm and inviting sanctuary that can be enjoyed all year-round.

Romantic and cozy environments have a mix of elements that work together to create a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. When it comes down to it, romantic interiors are all about setting the mood and filling the space with small details that reflect your personal style and make you feel at home. Start off with a delicious color palette of deep reds, rich browns and earthy colors–these hues can instantly add warmth to a room. If you’re a fan of more neutral spaces go with a winter white or creamy color that has a soft and airy feel: rustic wood accents and soft textures can easily warm up these brighter interiors. Set the tone by using multiple sources of soft light–chandeliers, sconces, lanterns, or lamps–to enhance the style and ambiance of any room.

Once the overall mood of the room is set, you can start to focus on the smaller details. A home will feel most cozy when it’s filled with things that you love–so don’t forget the decorative accents and personal touches. In the kitchen, a refreshing bouquet of flowers, upholstered chairs, a small dining nook with lush throw pillows will provide an intimate setting for dining home. Stylish throw rugs, luxurious fixtures, art, aromatherapy and candles can make the bathroom as calm, relaxing and indulgent as a spa. Check out our Pinterest Board and some pictures below to see how some of these ideas can really transform your home into a romantic retreat.
