It’s February again, that cold, short little month that is so often overlooked, discriminated against due to its small size… poor February, only getting attention every four years (“wait… is there a February 29th this year? This whole leap year business is too confusing.”).
But the second month of the year does have one great redeeming quality to save it from oblivion: Valentine’s Day! February is now indebted to Saint Valentine for being beheaded on its fourteenth day and giving us reason to celebrate the month. And also for causing the suicide rates to spike during its 28 (29?) days. Yikes! Does February have no redeeming qualities?
If you don’t have a significant other to commemorate the day with, don’t despair! You can romanticize your home for your own self. Why not have a beautiful, love-filled bathroom designed just for you? Our commercialized “romance” is characterized by roses, chocolates, and candlelight. I like roses! I like chocolate! I like candles! Who says you need to share that with someone to enjoy it?
Whether or not you have a loved one with whom to exchange valentines, decorate your bathroom in the spirit of love. Because everyone loves something, right? So why not focus on all that you do love?

See? Hearts and roses – no commitment necessary.
Vigo Caramel Vessel Sink in Chocolate Swirl with Waterfall Faucet
Look at the name of this sink. Look at it. There cannot be anything more chocolatey than this in your bathroom. It’s like having a Milky Way bar for a sink!
Anne at Home Hannah Heart Knob
Everyone has a heart. (That’s what I told my son when his cousin – a girl, mind you – said that his project with a heart on it was girly.) Why does it have to signify love?
No romantic bathroom is complete without the right lighting. It needs a chandelier and candles!

And it has that chocolatey shade to boot! (And yes, I do like chocolate very much. Why do you ask?)

Rose colored, modern, gorgeous. Perfect for relaxing in the tub (alone or not!).
You can also combine the chandelier with the candles in one all-purpose, contemporary package.

Of course, your bathroom can be romanticized for two if you are in a relationship (I personally am happily married, so don’t think I’m bitter!). There’s nothing like a tub for two – share a bath while retaining your own comfortable legroom and personal space.
