Do you ever wish you were one of those people who have elegant home decor for every holiday and season?   Would you like to make your own home look beautiful and festive?  Here are 4 easy yet tasteful ways to decorate your Skagit County home for Valentine’s Day this year… and beyond!

Fresh Flowers

Roses are the first flowers that come to mind when we think of this holiday for sweethearts, but any flowers will add to the beauty of your home on Valentine’s Day, or any day.  Fresh flowers add a lovely natural scent to your home, as well as livening up the indoors during the winter season.

Original Art

Made by you!  Many people are intimidated when they think of making art, but you don’t have to be a master painter to make something attractive to hang on your walls or adorn your mantelpiece.  There are a plethora of tutorials out there for making your own quick and easy, yet beautiful artwork for your home.  Making your own art is creative and affordable, and if you’re feeling the art bug, you can even create a rotating or seasonal gallery!  Try searching Pinterest for ideas.

Create Coziness

Lighting tastefully placed candles is one of the easiest ways to create a cozy ambiance for a room. There are all kinds of colors, sizes, and scents to choose from, but simple white candles or unscented candles can also be lovely.  Whatever you choose will be a testament to your own style and charm.

Add a Splash of Color

Try adding an accent pillow or throw to your couch or plush chair.  Use the holiday as an excuse to change things up and make things feel like new in your home.  You don’t have to go wild with reds and pinks.  A few items here and there will be all you need to set the mood for Valentine’s Day.

A combination of all of these easy things will go a long way toward giving your home a fresh look, even beyond Valentine’s Day.  We could all use some new art, fresh flowers, a splash of new color, and some cozy candles to help us get through the rainy season.
