Hearts at home

Christmas stag head

With Valentine's day just round the corner, here at the Ideal Home Show Shop we have some great tips to help you create the perfect romantic ambience in your home for the special day – and all year round! 


Neutral heart designs

If you're planning on decorating your home for Valentine's day this year then you should invest in a few choice homewares that don't have to be taken down after the 14th February! You'll find plenty of bright red heart and love design decorations in the shops at the moment but these aren't going to stand the test of time. Here at the Ideal Home Show Shop, we recommend that you focus on romantic style homewares made from wood, wicker, fabric and ribbon in neutral colours like white, cream and beige. These can be easily incorporated into your year-round décor as something stylish and feminine without becoming twee.


Hanging hearts

Hanging hearts are the easiest way to get a romantic look in your home for Valentine's day and bring style to any room at any time of the year. They couldn't be simpler to add anywhere around the house, on door handles, dressing tables and bed posts. Choose hanging heart decorations with ribbon, rope or metal ties and you really can add them anywhere in your home or garden. Heart garlands are also a huge trend and ideal for hanging on doors or walls if you want to make a bigger style statement in your home. Complete the look by dotting heart-shaped picture frames and candle holders around the room on shelves, mantelpieces or windowsills.
