"Falling in Love with Home Decor" A Valentine's Day Home Decor

"Love planted a rose, and the world turned sweet"

~ Katharine Lee Bates, Songwriter

Happy Valentine's Day! If you have just come from Kristy at Steeplechase Manor, thank you so much for visiting! I am so grateful that you stopped by. I luv Kristy's decor and to be a professional interior designer, what a dream!

Ok, so I'm not a professional interior designer like Kristy, however, I have luved home decor since I was young. I luv decorating for Valentine's Day, as I feel as though it is really simple and festive decor. And can be done without looking like you just bought out a Hallmark store! There are many simple craft projects and DIY's that can help you get there too if you like. You may visit my Pinterest board, Valentine's Day Ideas to check out some of my favorites. I also recently posted how to make a Hearts Garland, which is so cute on a mantel, girls room, door, kitchen, etc..

A great place to begin is with pillows. I purchase pillow covers so that I can swap them out during the different holiday seasons. These I found at Pottery Barn. I use them as throw pillows in my sunroom, outdoors and in my living room.

After adding pillows, I say candles, candles, candles! I luv to have candles burning all the time. I found these light pink candles at Pottery Barn on sale for only $7.00 each and have them scattered throughout the house!

After pillows and candles, I luv to add baskets. Here is a heart basket filled with red and white metal hearts in our sunroom, that I found at Pier 1 Imports. Pier 1 Imports actually luved this so much, they chose this picture as one of their features!

Here is another basket that I found at Pottery Barn a couple of years ago, that sits on our living room coffee table with pink flowers from the grocery store in vintage milk bottles. Pillows, candles, baskets, and flowers!

I luv the welcoming and simplicity of scattering flowers throughout your decor.

This yellow chair was one of my first DIY posts. You may check that post out here if you would you like to see more. This vintage chair gets moved around quite a bit, and now fits right in.

Our sunroom/library

So one of my other luvs to decorate with are vintage chalkboards. And my husband has a touch of the artist in him, so that's a bonus. This one sits in our entryway on an easel that the previous owners of our home left behind.

I like moving things around (a lot) and here is another shot of the chalkboard in a corner of our main living area, which is an open floor concept.

Here you can see where I also decorated with baskets, flowers, candles, and pillows.

I added a few vintage books, which are so fun to decorate with and fill almost any space that is needed.

Vintage books with dried pink roses on the mantel add to a romantic feel.

Pin It!
