Friends, don’t forget that my new YouTube decor and design show Real Life Design With Courtney Warren debuts March 13!

If you’d like an email reminder for the premiere, text HAPPYHOME to 24587.

You know, I love my home, but more than that I love the people IN my home.  One of my great joys is creating an atmosphere at home that celebrates those I love. You can, too!

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…”

Whether it’s word art on a shelf or throws on the sofa, I like to surround my guys with reminders in our house that they are loved.
Use fireplace mantels (or faux, like mine, if you don’t have one) for celebration banners.

Elevate even a simple treat on a cake stand as a special way to celebrate an occasion.

How about using a special plate for a birthday dinner? So easy, but it’s something your loved one will long remember.

Just displaying family treasures, photos, even the family initial–signals to your dear ones that they are special to you and that your family is at the core of who you are.  The pretty, on-trend items from the home store are great, but don’t forget the personal touches.

And of course, on Valentines Day, you can pull out all the stops and party hearty at home with your favorite people!
