If January is synonymous with new beginnings, February is all about romance. Valentine’s Day invites us to think beyond our packed schedules and, instead, prioritize the ones we love. It also invites us to indulge our senses — whether it’s with a decadent box of fine chocolates, an evening out at a gorgeous restaurant, a spritz of our favorite lavish perfume, or in the colors of an elegant bouquet. When you think of it that way, shouldn’t Valentine’s Day last all month? We think so. Here are the favorite ways we’re treating ourselves throughout the month of February. Plus check out 3 of our favorite designers picks: Barclay Butera, Jaime Walters, and Catherine Davin.
