February is the month of love, and there are few other things in a home more romantic than a gorgeous sunroom. With the right decor, your sunroom can become a cozy spot for you to spend time with those you love this Valentine's season.
Love in Bloom
Red roses are a Valentine's staple, and having a bouquet in your sunroom will not only enhance its atmosphere, but also sweeten its fragrance. If you don't have an admirer sending them to your door, then give yourself some love and pick up a dozen. Cutting the stems every few days and changing the water regularly will make the blooms last longer. For a lower maintenance alternative, real touch silk flowers offer the same great look as fresh flowers, without the hassle. Plus, they'll last all year long.
The best thing about decorating a sunroom is the opportunity to use natural sunlight in your design, and stained glass heart-shaped sun catchers do the job beautifully in February.
If you're going to have little ones visiting your sunroom, consider getting some fun window gel clings- kids will love to help decorate. The clings are simple to stick to windows and fun to play with, and younger ones will enjoy being able to see their decorations from the outside of the house as well. They're easy to remove when the season is over.
How Do I Love Thee?
Because of the natural sunlight, sunrooms are the perfect place to read. Enhance your Valentine's decor by placing a few stacks of books of love poetry around, and take the time to leaf through them on a quiet afternoon, or read them with someone you love as the sun sets.
Lace doilies might seem like something you'd find at great-grandma's house, but everyone can get away with them as part of their home decor for Valentine's Day. Channel the lacy homemade valentines of the past by adding some simple white doilies to your table surfaces for a romantic touch. Because they also resemble snowflakes, you can even leave them up after Valentine's Day and enjoy them throughout the winter.
There's nothing more romantic than watching the sky turn from blue into shades of orange, pink, and purple as the sun sets, and your sunroom is the perfect place to enjoy the view. Add some throw blankets in shades of Valentine's pink and red, and light a scented candle or two to soften the transition from dusk to nighttime and add a sweet fragrance to your sunroom space.
