Although the temperatures are still chilly in Milwaukee, it's time to warm up your home design scheme in honor of Valentine's Day. February 14 is just a few days away and there's no better time to bring romantic flair to your house or apartment. Take a look at some of our top tips to exude romance through your home decor.
- Cozy throws: What better way to create an inviting atmosphere than with a cozy throw blanket? Drape a throw across a love seat for a truly romantic mood. Now sit back and relax by cuddling up with your sweetheart by the fireplace.
- Soft fabrics: "Soft, supple fabrics are absolutely critical to creating a romantic mood," writes HGTV. "For the utmost in luxury, silk should be high on your list, even if it only makes it onto a pillow. In a bedroom, good coverlet candidates include chenille, matelassé and velvet; the textural quality they bring into the room contributes to the overall aesthetic." One of the best ways to introduce romantic fabrics to your room is through the use of custom curtains and drapes.
- Upholstered chairs: Upholstery projects are great because they allow you to choose your own fabrics to create a one-of-a-kind furniture piece. Choose floral patterns or trendy Chevron in the romantic shades of dusty rose or light lavender. You can use this fabric on everything from love seats to corner chairs.
