Our house was feeling so bland since taking down christmas decorations. While I’m not normally one to decorate for Valentine’s day, it gave me the perfect inspiration to add in come color without going all the way spring (we still have six more weeks of winter!)
Warm touches of pink, orange, gold and red. Nothing over the top, but just enough to feel festive and pretty and less-bland.
A few sweet saying about love are scattered around as gentle reminders.
And some valentine treats in old silver bowls.
The living room feels much more feminine than usual – with pink pillows, flowers and ruffly details.
Simply by changing out pillows, adding a colorful throw and a few choice accessories, it is easy to alter the look and feel of a room. It’s one of the things I like the best about having neutral basics like our linen sofa (from andella home) and taupe tufted chairs (from ethan allen).
I sewed each of these pillows out of fabric I’ve been saving for a moment like this. The ombre pillow is made from a table runner, the orange geometric is from King Cotton, but I used the reverse for a less bold look. And the cutie heart pillow was a simple project inspired by this tutorial by Melaine at My Sweet Savannah.
The stag got a fancy new flower bouquet. I think this is my favorite part.
I just snipped the stems off of a few silk flowers and wired them together to make the bouquet, then wired them to the stag.
Just a few pretty updates to help celebrate this month of love.
