Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion to infuse your home with love and style. As an interior designer passionate about creating spaces that resonate with warmth and elegance, designer Carla Dashwood curated two exceptional pieces to help you transform your space into a romantic retreat.
Elevate your bedroom into a haven of romance with the Rest & Renew Duvet Set. This set, comprising a duvet cover and sham, not only brings a blush of pink to your space but also introduces the perfect blend of comfort and eco-conscious design. Style your bed with this luxurious set, and complement it with soft, neutral-toned throw pillows and a cozy faux fur blanket like the cozy Kaycee dark pink throw. Create a serene ambiance with dim lighting and scented candles to complete the intimate setting. The silky-soft sateen weave and Fair Trade Certified™ craftsmanship ensure your space reflects not just style but love and ethical living.
Introduce a touch of modern elegance to your living space with the Cambridge Light Pink Velvet Accent Chair. This piece is not just furniture; it's a statement of style and sophistication. Surround it with lush greenery and drape a chunky knit throw over the back for a cozy touch. Incorporate metallic accents, like gold or rose gold, to enhance the chair's glamour and create a harmonious aesthetic. The soft pink hue exudes romance, making it an ideal spot for unwinding with a loved one or indulging in some well-deserved self-care.

"Comfort and cuddling come to mind when I think of Valentine’s Day, whether it be with your partner, pet, friends or other family members. Our Amber Sectional is perfect for all of the above! This sectional features a full size pull up sleeper, combined with the chaise and sofa on either side, it is about the size of a king size bed! The chaise also includes storage, which is great for keeping extra blankets and pillows. In keeping with the Valentine theme, you can accessorize with soft pinks, grays and whites to create a soft romantic tone or add red pieces for a more alluring vibe. Don’t forget to use candles and florals for that special touch!" - Designer Karey Wright

Creating a warm and intimate ambiance for Valentine's Day can be achieved through thoughtful decor choices. Cushions, artwork, throws are all great ways to decorate the Nixon Collection for Valentine’s Day. Arrange cozy blankets and pillows to create a comfortable and inviting setting for relaxation and intimate moments. Choose fabrics in romantic colors and textures.
Incorporate flowers into your decor, especially those in shades of pink and red. A vase filled with fluffy pink peony stems, as mentioned in your example, is a beautiful and classic choice for Valentine's Day. Roses, tulips, or other romantic blooms also work well.
Introduce red and pink accents throughout your home. This could include throw pillows, blankets, tablecloths, or decorative items. These colors are synonymous with love and can instantly set a romantic tone.
The soft glow of candles or the twinkling lights of fairy lights can create a cozy and romantic atmosphere. The choice of scented candles can further enhance the atmosphere, with fragrances that evoke emotions or memories, making the experience even more personal and meaningful.

"Flowers, the romantic gesture that quickly becomes a burden. Picture a vase of wilting lilies. The pungent smell of pollen, the murky scum water, the wasted sentiment. Flowers die. Get a new dining room set instead.
The Alden dining collection is bold, sleek, and longstanding. I like the Alden black round upholstered armchairs with the black round dining table for smaller spaces. Incorporate sculptural wall art like the Finto Brown Wall Art to complete the moody, contemporary look. Mixing deep neutrals with an offset of white, found in both wall art and Alden’s upholstery, creates a calm yet pensive space. It’s peak quiet extravagance!" - Designer Jennifer Koff
This Valentine's Day, let your home be a canvas for love and design. Embrace the harmony of colors, textures, and thoughtful styling to create a space that not only celebrates the season but also resonates with timeless elegance. Cheers to creating lasting memories in a space that reflects your unique style and celebrates the beauty of connection.
