Whether your Valentine’s Day plans involve an intimate candlelit dinner for two, a “Galentine’s” brunch with your closest friends, or a relaxed evening at home, these spaces are designed to inspire! Take a cue or two from place settings, floral arrangements, and cozy corners galore, and fall a little more in love with every room in your home!
There’s nothing like the classics when it comes to setting an unforgettable Valentine’s Day table. Rich burgundies add depth to the palette, and a loose, overflowing arrangement of varied roses creates a dramatic centerpiece.
Layers of Love
Not a fan of hot pinks and heart motifs? Turn up the romantic style for a timeless Valentine’s Day look that can hang around all year. Layer in lace and floral prints with muted blush tones and top off vintage accessories with dramatic blooms like oversize roses and peonies. For our stylist’s full guide, tour this space here!
Classic and Casual
A touch of rustic charm is perfect for offsetting the elegance of your Valentine’s Day table. Start the evening with charcuterie before diving into dinner at a table set with pink tapers and glam touches of gold. See the full table for more inspo.
Depart from the typical pinks and reds with a subdued—but endlessly elegant—display. Heaps of white blooms will always add romance to your space, but piling them atop a piano among timeworn vintage touches only enhances the effect.

No time to go on a décor shopping spree? Just a stylish touch or two is enough to celebrate the holiday in your space—like a charming heart-motif pillow in this cozy cottage bedroom.
