Turn your apartment into an “aHEARTment”

Make your DTLA apartment extra festive this Valentine’s Day.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the red-centric holidays just keep rolling during February. This lovely day should always be welcome because it gives you a chance to focus on that special someone, especially if it’s you! Take the opportunity to make this year’s celebration one to remember with a little planning and a lot of heart. Here area some ways to turn your apartment into and “aHEARTment” for the 14th.



Brighten your place with fresh flowers. Red roses are traditional, but red tulips are festive and speak to spring being around the corner. And don’t feel limited to red flowers, any color flowers can make a room pop. If you can get to the Los Angeles Flower Market before noon during the week, do it. If not there are a ton of flower shops on and near East 8th Street to peruse. When you find a favorite, you can keep you apartment stocked with fresh flowers regularly.



Don’t just go with the box from the pharmacy this year, even if it’s the “good stuff”. This year calls for a box of chocolates from a place that specializes in sweets. Luckily for you, John Kelly Chocolates is just down the way from Axis on Eleventh and Axis on Twelfth. This artisanal chocolatier will give your mouth a reason to be happy with velvety smooth and fudgy chocolates in a variety of delectable flavors.



Explore your culinary range and avoid the dinner crowds by making a meal at home. Do you have a dish that’s your specialty? How can you bump it up a notch? Even mac and cheese can be fancied up with a little truffle oil or a cave-aged Gruyere sprinkled on top. An Axis kitchen is designed to be a pleasure to use, so use it with joy. Head to Whole Foods Market and pick up all the ingredients for a delightful meal made with love.


This is the point where we tell you that if you want to get flowers, chocolates and a prepared selection of food from Whole Foods, that’s ok too. Spending more time with your special someone is more important than spending time stopping at a few shops (no matter how close).


With a little effort you can make your DTLA apartment a Valentine’s Day haven and may spur you find new ways to love your home. If you haven’t found the perfect apartment in DTLA yet, you have to take a look at Axis on Eleventh and Axis on Twelfth.
