Valentine’s Day Home Decorating Ideas
The Christmas decorations are snuggly packed away. It’s time for red, pink and white decor along with hearts and arrows to make their appearance. So, if you’re looking for some Valentine’s Day Home Decorating Ideas, you’ve come to the right place!
While I love Valentine’s Day for its sweet sentiment, I prefer to keep my decorations simple with pops of color around the house, which totally brightens up gray winter days! Come along as I show you how to create a festive home for Valentine’s Day without going overboard with cutesy decorations.
Since it’s a focal point in our home, it’s fun to start with our mantel. Switching it out for the season or current holiday brings a festive feel to the room.
Valentine’s Day Mantel
When decorating a mantel, I find it easiest to start with a blank canvas…here, that’s just the bare mantel with a rectangular mirror as the focal point. I take everything off the mantel besides that one piece. You can use whatever you have as a focal point – a shutter, a picture or mirror – as long as it has enough presence to be the focal point. Whatever works in your space and goes with your theme is perfect!
From this point you can go in any direction depending on what you like and what you can add from around your home. The “You Are Loved” hand written font sign on my mantel adds a pop of whimsy and color. It was a great find at Fred Meyer! The sign is so cute, it could totally be used year round.
It’s important to add items with varying height, textures and shapes to your mantel to make it all come together. If possible, create a triangle using your focal point as the tip at the top of the triangle and decorating out from there.
Flowers, an ampersand, candles and some farmhouse buckets filled with red roses complete the sweet look.
Around the House
Unlike Christmas, which takes over just about every room in my house, Valentine’s Day decor is better lightly sprinkled throughout the house. My tiered tray is the perfect way to incorporate Valentine’s Day in the family room. The kids have a hard time keeping their hands out of the candy jar, though!
The kitchen is another place that Valentine’s Day decor is a perfect fit. I can’t wait to serve some Valentine’s Day treats in these adorable bowls! (they kinda work as decorations too because they’re so stinkin’ cute) 🙂
Pillows! I may have a teeny addiction to pretty accent pillows, so this “LOVE” pillow was screaming my name as I passed the home decor section at Fred Meyer! How adorable, don’t ya think?
My farmhouse ladder was the perfect place to hang my “XOXO” tea towel. It brings a little pop of red to the other side of the family room and ties everything together.
This L-O-V-E table top sign could really go anywhere in your home. I love that it’s neutral, but still says Valentine’s Day.
