Outdoor Valentine's Day Décor Ideas

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and express gratitude toward those you hold dear. While these gestures are usually done behind closed doors, spreading the joy with outdoor Valentine’s décor not only looks oh-so-adorable and inviting, but it might just make your neighbor’s day!

The beauty of outdoor Valentine’s Day décor—beyond the vivid colors and overall feeling of joyousness—is that a stunning display isn’t hard to create, whether big or small. Those who prefer minimal décor can add a dose of love with a simple festive wreath clad with hearts or a few Valentine pillows sprinkled on a porch swing. However, if you like to go big, there is also ample space outside for grand displays festooned with large signs, tall balloons, or even a Valentine’s Day card-making station (#22 on the list!). Here is a Valentine’s Day card we wrote for you:

Red, pink, and white create an iconic color scheme for Valentine’s décor, making this red front door the perfect base to build upon. The pink floral wreath does a beautiful job of softening the bold door, while the cluster of heart balloons adds movement and height to the symmetrical display. To top it all off, the distressed pots filled with flowers and wooden step-stools tone down the brightness and infuse it with a touch of farmhouse charm.

Uncovering the Truth About Rain Shower Designs: Are They Practical?

It is one of the unfortunate truths of interior design trends: unique designs cannot be applied as seamlessly as one would hope. One of the main areas we see this reality is rain showers. Extending out of the ceiling with wide shower heads, they create an experience that should transport you to a romantic retreat, but that’s impossible if water is falling directly in your eyes, soaking your hair with limited water pressure that leaves you freezing if you venture even six inches away from the water’s direct flow. https://www.lunaspas.com/blog/rain-showers-everything-you-need-to-know/

With all of that being said, there are positive attributes to these sumptuous spouts, and one of those is how well they can be combined with a hand-held spout or traditional faucet. There are numerous ways to include multiple water sources in one shower that can maximize the spa-like atmosphere. Our lovely contributors, readers, and professional interior designers have shared just how this is possible, hoping to inspire and educate on this pressing subject. With their advice, the rain shower of your dreams may be within reach!

The goal of designing any space is to create a memorable design that exceeds your expectations, and this is a fantastic place to begin.

Have you seen wood planks covering a ceiling and wondered whether it would suit your space? The answer is yes if you want to infuse natural materials or incorporate calming earth tones!

Break all the rules of ceiling color selection and choose a dark or vibrant color to redefine the room’s décor.

Finding the perfect design is just a scroll away, with alternatives to a white ceiling awaiting you below!

The Hidden Truth About Waterfall Countertops: Luxury or Practical Nightmare?

Waterfall countertops and islands are custom and idealistic luxury in any kitchen, but what if practicality trumps aesthetic?
