Home really is where the heart is.

It’s time to enjoy a love affair - with your home - and turn it into the cossetting, indulgent space that fulfils your desires.

Of course, it’s all down to your decor taste - which is as individual as your choice of partner - so you could opt for curvy furniture and sensual textures, feature racy red accessories, or take a quirky approach with comic book art.

What’s key is bringing romance to your rooms and conjuring the perfect space for snuggling as a singleton, or for flirting and wooing on Valentine’s Day and beyond.

White and pink are the perfect partners for a seductive scheme, and the addition of sensual textures - velvet upholstery and a sheepskin rug - will ramp up the romantic atmosphere. In a pared-back setting, subtle gilded touches (so on-trend), which hint at your feelings, have the space to star.

Why go public with your love? Instead, avoid crowded over-priced restaurants and enjoy the occasion in private, with an intimate meal at home. It’s worth remembering there’s a close relationship between love and food - because you’re using all the same senses; taste, touch, smell and sight.

Let the wall ‘Pop’ the question

Online daters always rate a GSOH (good sense of humour) as one of the top qualities needed in a prospective partner. Witty decor - from a comic-style mural, through to quirky lights and accessories - could go a long way to proving you not only see the lighter side of life, but are also uber-stylish.

Show your love with heartfelt details

It’s the little things in life that really make the difference, and just a small token will show you care. Use one tiny accessory to make the special point, or perhaps several, hung on door handles or pinned up at intervals, leading the way to that Valentine’s Day surprise...
