Hearts are not really my style but the UK seems to take Valentine's Day even more seriously than the U.S., so it has had me searching for a modern way to incorporate hearts into the home without the sappy cutesy look.

The shape of the heart is a nice flexible form that can add a touch of whimsy anywhere in the home, whether it is in your morning coffee or the focal point of your living room.
