Romantic ideas for Valentine’s Day decorating don’t need to come from insipid heart-shaped candies or cupid designed boxer shorts. Serious interiors can be achieved with the use of reds, pinks and even frills! No question, pink is a feminine color, however it can be used so that it doesn’t look like a little girl’s room.
Romantic rooms tend to be more traditional but can certainly be playful and flirty. Pink walls and decor can enhance anybody’s complexion, especially in the glow of a classic chandelier. Take notice how each of these rooms incorporate darker toned wood furniture or architecture to ground the space and offer a masculine counterbalance to the overall romantic themes.
A totally pink too much for you? No worries, here are a few romantic home decor items that can add a touch of glamour and romance to your home. Although everything here is pink, there are some more masculine shapes and designs to appeal to the men in your life.

Romantic ideas can also be all about the small details in your home as opposed to a full room redecoration. From dining room tabletops to dressing tables and side tables, pink can add just enough softness and elegance to make the most mundane space special.
