I have rather fallen in love with this knitted chandelier from Anthropolgie, a somewhat unconventional material for a chandelier the hand-knitted aspect adds a little quirk and intrigue to the piece. The knitted chandelier creates a beautiful, hazy atmosphere and is a wonderfully original take on the traditional crystal chandelier.

From ceiling to table, a quick and easy way to inject a little romantic mood lighting into a dining room is with a stunning tea light holder like this one from Graham and Green, its large enough to not need too many other sources of light, creating the perfect setting for an intimate evening, and its beautiful design means it can be used for all sorts of occasions as well.

Keep the romantic feeling alive even during afternoon tea, this cup and saucer combo from Rockett St George is absolutely adorable and lives just on the right side of twee and gushy. A few integrated into a set of plain teacups and saucers would look lovely and would avoid everything looking a little too matchy-matchy.

Another romantic addition to tea are these rather sweetly design napkins from Thornback & Peel, teaming a traditional pink with an untraditional rabbit and cabbage design makes the napkins suitable for using all year round.

Romance and Swans are often been intertwined with one another and if you’re looking for a more permanent romantic touch to your home these Swan curtain tiebacks would make a really sweet addition to a home, perfect for a bedroom.

For an animal less typical affiliated with romance but equally as lovely, this monkey bottle holder from Graham and Green will really add something to your dining room table and is a wonderful way to show off your style, as well as your fun side.

The beautiful lines and colour used to create this beautifully stylish vase makes it a rather dreamy design, in keeping with a romantic atmosphere, suitable for a small bouquet of flowers, or dare I say it a single rose.
‘Wave Vases’ from Not on the High Street
To fill your living area up with a warming and cosy atmosphere you can’t go wrong with this lovely dusty coloured cushion from Timorous Beasties. They make the most amazing designs and for something low-key a few of these cushions scattered across a sofa will do the job nicely.

‘Star Dish’ from Catesby’s
This star dish from Catesby’s is impossibly cute and will add some twinkly-eyed magic to any evening, they’re wonderfully contemporary as well as having a hint of rustic-ness about them.
And finally, I couldn’t help but gush at over how gorgeous this elegant candelabra is, it’s absolutely stunning and even if you didn’t have anything else on the table it would still wow your company and goes hand-in-hand with a romantic interior.
