About this Episode

Today we talk about romancing your home. Or better yet, decorating your home so it romances you! We have ideas that push the envelope of what might be typically considered ‘romantic’ and those that clearly fall into that category. Each item will add a delightful touch to your home and in turn make you feel wonderful. That sounds pretty romantic doesn’t it? And today isn’t all hearts and flowers, you are going to learn important tips on an item most of us use regularly.

Anita’s picks for adding a touch of romance are:

A velvet duvet from Ballard Designs HERE.

A cross the tub bath caddy from Wayfair HERE

A faux fur throw from Soft Surroundings HERE.

A tabletop fire from Wayfair HERE .

An Empire style crystal chandelier from Wayfair HERE .

Kelly’s picks for adding a touch of Romance are:
