Roses at the ready – Valentine’s Day is here! And whether you’re scowling at greeting card shops or drawing hearts on everything, we have the recipe for a perfect night in. From sumptuous sofas to snug beds, hot date or not, you’ll definitely fall in love with your interiors! Because why spend money on clichéd nights out and unsentimental set menus when you can get cosy instead?
A date on the sofa catching up on Netflix is totally acceptable in the modern dating game. You’ll need plenty of room for 2, but pick an L-shape for luxurious lounging, or add a footstool for a footsie moment. You’ll want your date to feel comfortable, so mix different textures, colours, patterns and sizes of cushions (including some you can hide behind at scary movie moments), and invest in a beautiful throw for snuggling up. You’ll want to appear tidy, so hide ugly TV wires behind a stylish sideboard and read our blog on coffee table styling for a seamless tabletop.
Breakfast in bed
Create that boutique hotel experience at home with a surprise breakfast in bed. Our So Versatile Mini and Theo Side Tables will be your perfect bedside companions, as they have lift off tray tops for easy serving. You’ll also need a great headboard to lean back on. Our Simply Relaxed has a loose trim for a cosy cushion effect, or create a cocoon with our Simply Winged design. For a real luxury suite feel though, our Simply Winged AND Buttoned headboard is endlessly romantic.
Dinner a Deux
Dish up some romance with a classic home-cooked meal. Our stylish Complete Circle Table is the ideal size for an intimate dinner, but you’ll still be able to reach across to share dessert. Pair with upholstered chairs which you can linger all night long on. Or, take it to the living room for a more relaxed affair. Our Tailored Taste room has a fashionable feel and will sit a small squad. There’s even a floor lamp in case you run into the evening. We love a kitchen disco!
BFF bubbles & brunch
Galentine’s Day might have started as a fictional holiday on the TV show ‘Parks and Recreation’, but what better excuse to get your girls together and celebrate female friendship? You’ll need plenty of bubbles, and fuss-free sharing food, so we’re proposing the long boozy brunch! Our X Tray and Tray Coffee Table both have removable tops for a sofa supper.
Being single or anti-valentine’s day doesn’t have to equal miserable. Make this a day to spoil yourself! Watch all the guilty pleasure TV you want, eat an entire box of fancy chocolates and indulge in some online shopping from the comfort of your own bed. Layer up cushions for a dreamy den and pair with some silky pyjamas for a tactile treat.
