With Valentine's Day approaching, we're dedicating next week to romance with our Love in the Afternoon issue. Romance through a Remodelista lens means soaking tubs for two, romantic hotels, (ungirly) pink palettes, and lighting with a softer glow. Here are snippets of what we've been intrigued by around the web this week, including a few DIY valentines we're planning to make: Above: Is this the world's most minimalist hair salon? Vine Hair Salon in Kobe, Japan via Yatzer. Gearing up for V Day, Margot is reading  Love Illuminated , a new book by friend and editor of the NY Times' Modern Love column, Dan Jones, in which he explores "life's most mystifying subject (with the help of 50,000 strangers)." Admiring this list of  romantic Southern travel destinations  via Southern Living. Above: Sarah recently spotted this lofty idea for a  Valentine's Day DIY project  via Tikkido. Paying attention to Country Living's post detailing  seven ways we could be ruining our wood floors . Above: Revisiting a favorite DIY session of ours, the  Retro Valentine's Workshop at Cookbook Grocery in LA . For more ideas, here's a great video tutorial on making  homemade valentines  with children via Real Simple. Above: Inspired by the vanilla bean twisted hearts at the LA valentine's workshop, Alexa made  her own version . Having finally received some rain here in arid California, Sarah is coveting this  Scottish-made charcoal poncho  (good for riding a bike in the rain). Above: Margot is beating a path through the snow in New York to attend this weekend's  Dosa  sample sale in Soho featuring the Traveler 2013 collection, shown here, as well as past season bargain boxes. (At Remodelista's New York Holiday Market, a woman confided that she considered canceling a trip to Paris to be at a Dosa sale.) This one is Saturday 11-5 and Sunday 11-3 at 628 Broadway, suite 302. Impressed by all 20 of these dramatic  before and after kitchen remodels  in Sunset Magazine.
