Comments () | Published February 7, 2014

Who says Valentine’s Day decor has to be all frills and fluff? No, thank you. But just because you’re not going to redo your whole home in ruffles and pink doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in the occasional heart shape—for festivity’s sake, of course. Here’s the trick: Go for crisp color-blocking, modish graphic designs, and interesting shapes. A splash of playful text doesn’t hurt, either. Here, we’ve hunted down ten V-Day finds—to keep or to gift—that won’t make you look like you’ve sold out to Hallmark.
