Our Favourite Fireplace Decor for Valentine’s Day

Cozy it up!

Cozy fireplace Decor for Valentine’s Day

Make your fireplace a cozy setting for Valentine’s Day. A Maribou Feather Boa laid across the mantle says class and elegance. Most boas are 4-inch, so add three or four together to get a nice full look.

A soft upholstered chair, draped in a faux fur blanket and topped with a couple of heart-shaped pillows creates an elegant and sophisticated look.

Since red is a traditional colour on Valentine’s Day, this is an opportunity to repurpose some Christmas decor items, such as the red boa or faux fur blanket.
