Valentine’s Day is just two weeks away! This year instead of single use paper decorations, consider home accessories with heart – ones you can use all year ’round! Show your home and family a little love through your decorating. This post is filled with ideas to get your heart-felt decorating started.
Heart to Heart
First, let me assure you that using hearts in your decorating doesn’t have to lead to an overly sweet or kitschy decorating style. You can put your own twist on a room when using heart motifs. See what I mean by studying the two very different bedrooms below - both use an abundance of heart motifs but with very different results.
Everyone knows the kitchen is the heart of the home. The fun and practical hot pads and kitchen towels shown above emphasize the point.
Show your love by serving dinner or a sweet treat on heart bedecked plates.
You can show a whole lotta love to your walls when decorating with heart. The metal wall art (top) presents an interesting repeat of heart motifs. Cut hearts and other simple shapes, such as the birds birds shown in the second photo, from a variety of scrapbook paper and add a frame for a fun and love-ly piece. Animal print wall decals might be perfect for showing your love of animals – or your wild side. Intricate cut paper hearts make an appealing framed pair.
Decorate your desk with gorgeous heart shaped paper weights or a frame to showcase who holds your heart in the game of love.
Open the door to love with this great bronze heart rimlatch.
Keep the keys to your heart safe on this darling key hook.
You won’t mind having your heart stepped on when it’s this colorful hearts and flowers area rug someone is treading upon.
Declare your love with a toss pillow.
Store your jewelry with love using these beautiful silver vanity storage pieces decorated with hearts.
These felt ornament hearts can help spread the love throughout your home. Hang them on a door or drawer knob, add several to a decorative wreath, scatter a few on a coffee or side table, run a ribbon through the loop and use the heart as a curtain tie-back or a napkin ring.
