Windows 7 Themes: Valentines for your desktop!

Ah, February. The favorite month of florists the world over… at least anywhere Valentine’s Day is customarily celebrated with gifts of flowers. And of all flowers throughout history, the rose is the most enduring symbol of love. Sadly, although the symbol endures, a real fresh-cut rose doesn’t stay lovely for long. But the roses in our new Windows 7 theme will remain beautiful forever.


And of course love is not limited to humans. in the new Animal Affection theme we published today, affectionate couples of many species nuzzle, kiss, play, groom, and nap together in happy companionship.


The Lovebirds and Lacy Hearts themes are not new, but the images in them are as pretty now as they were when we first published them. And don’t forget to pick up some Chocolates!



If you don’t have Windows 7, or prefer to use a single desktop image, check out the Valentine wallpapers on the Holidays and seasons tab of the wallpapers page.

For a total change of pace from sweet romance to futuristic high-speed shoot-em-up, check out the brand new Bullet Asylum theme! Get a preview of UberGeek’s gorgeous graphics, and prepare yourself for the game’s February 8th launch on Windows Phone, with the luminously glossy visuals and techy laserlike sounds in the theme.


The next two themes showcase artwork submitted to the open call by two amazing artists, Cameron Bashaw and Guo Bo. Cameron’s darkly dramatic fractal art evokes spiral nebulae, ice crystals, feathers, and swirling smoke.


Guo Bo’s stylishly tasty Fun Fruit artwork explores the colorful worlds inside slices of kiwi, lemon, watermelon, and more.


In the next few weeks we’ll have a lot more new stuff, including a theme for Chickens Can’t Fly and several that feature the works of fine photographers who are participating in the open call. So keep on visiting the Windows Personalization gallery for new Windows 7 themes and wallpapers.
