It Doesn’t Have to Be Valentines Day to Deck Out a Room with Heart Decor
If you’ve decided that a heart-themed room is what the doctor ordered, then don’t forget to use the floor to complete the overall look.

When we decorate, we tend to think of things like furniture, bedding, drapes, pillows, throws, and art-work; we sometimes forget that the floor can also be used as a piece of art.
The best part of floor decor is being able to use the area as a focal point. This is especially useful if you have ample open space. As an example, using an area rug with hearts serves two purposes; it provides an opportunity to create a defined space as well as a chance to include a unique design and pattern to the room.
The best, most practical use of an area rug with hearts is against a neutral/less patterned backdrop. Soften a bedroom’s feel by placing a busy rug with hearts either in front or by the bedside. Complete the heart theme with heart-shaped wall art, heart-shaped pillows, and heart-themed lamps.
Don’t be shy about the main room of the home either; an area rug with hearts can easily be part of a living room space. Just remember to go easy on all other patterns included. The secret is ‘bold subtleness.’ The area rug makes a bold statement but using solid-colored furniture, drapes, and lamps scream, “I’m subtle.” When people enter a space where there’s ‘just enough pattern, they won’t feel overwhelmed, and best of all, they grasp your intention.
How About a Contradiction Theme?
If you enjoy being different when you decorate, then take a heart-themed space and do it any color other than red or pink.
That’s right. Bring heart decor into your room, but choose a color scheme that completely contradicts what people think of when they think of hearts. How about a blue heart themed room, or a black heart themed room. Your creative energy will be given a chance to shine! How much fun would a black and white heart themed room be?
