How to Mix Valentine’s Day into your Winter Home Decor

Are you looking for ways to decorate your home for Valentine’s Day? Here are some ideas for adding a hint of Valentine’s inspiration sprinkled with your cozy winter home decor.

Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?

I’ve never done much to decorate my house for this romantic February holiday. I live in a beach cottage so when it comes to my home’s mostly blue and green sea-inspired color palette, there’s never been a lot of pink and red decor around.

And then there’s the fact that I’m not an expert DIYer, so creating a Valentine’s Day masterpiece is sadly not in the cards for me.

The more I see this holiday’s decor ideas from other bloggers, I have become inspired and realize that I could still have fun mixing in Valentine’s Day touches with my already existing winter decor.

The best part was that I didn’t have to go overboard. I could do what feels right in my own home. I’ve just added a touch of pink and red here, and a heart or two there. It can’t get any easier than that, right?

And don’t forget the flowers! LOTS and LOTS of pretty pink and red flowers.

For those of you who saw my Winter Decor Tour a few weeks ago, you’ll see that I have kept many of the same winter elements in this room.

Adding a Valentine’s Day Vibe to the Winter Decor

  • The bare Christmas trees have been put away and replaced with faux plants and flowers.
  • A few rose-colored pillows have been added to the neutral palette.
  • A heart or two has been added to the winter vignettes in the room.
  • A rose-colored pitcher with an olive print from Anthropologie replaced some mini bottlebrush trees.
  • A fun print that is usually in my office was hung to bring in more of the rose color.

The cream pillows were already here for a cozy winter vibe. I just added some rose-colored pillows to my couch, chairs, and window seat.

The cream pillow is from The Loomia. I added the chunky throw and rose and white print pillow from Target.

I bought this rose-colored pitcher with an olive print from Anthropologie last fall but I am loving the fact that it goes so well with the other touches of Valentine’s Day decor.

A red vintage book or two brings that Valentine’s pop of color to this vignette. I found a bunch of great faux plants at Target that were in the $10-15 range.

I won’t even tell you how many I bought.

My vintage cabinet has plenty of vintage goodies like a suitcase and wicker picnic basket. The white faux flowers break up the greenery on either side.

When you think of Valentine’s Day, how can you NOT think of roses?

These gorgeous roses are the perfect color combination. I tend to choose soft pink tones over red when it comes to decorating for Valentine’s Day.

My bedroom was fun to decorate with rose print pillowcases next to the vase of roses.

Adding candlelight makes the space even more beautiful.

I found the LOVE sign in LaConner, WA. many years ago. Unfortunately, the store has gone out of business since I was there last.

Valentine's tablescape

Our kitchen table is a focal point in both the kitchen and the living room so I always try to create a tablescape for each holiday.

Last Valentine’s Day, I went to a floral shop to get a mixture of roses, stock, and eucalyptus for the centerpiece. The tulips came from the grocery store.
