Feb 02 2012
It’s the start of February and love is in the air – or at least on the horizon. Whether you’re looking forward to Valentines Day, or avoiding it like the plague you can still take great inspiration from all the holiday has to offer!
Perhaps most commonly associated with the day of love, hearts can be used in all sorts of ways to decorate your home. I’ve once again been searching the web for some innovative ways of how we could show our homes some love with heart shaped décor.
Hearts in the hallway
Who says door decoration is only for Christmas?! Dangle these beautiful room tags from your door handle for an instant feminine touch.
Hearts in the kitchen
Ever popular, Emma Bridgewater’s wonderfully simple heart designs can add a touch of country character to your kitchen. Combine with pastel colours for the perfect shabby chic look!
Hearts in the garden
Don’t stop at just the house! Feel the love in your garden with beautiful lanterns…
…or watch the sun glisten off this innovative wind-spinner.
Hearts in the Lounge
There are many lovely trinkets and artworks that can be used to add subtle touches to your living room. But, if subtle just isn’t your style there’s also a bolder option for you! Take a look at this heart shaped chair designed by Giovannette. Could this be the ultimate seat for a Valentines Day cuddle?
Hearts in the Bathroom
Hang up your towel on these french inspired bathroom hooks. A very popular trend at the moment, vintage french design can look stunning in your bathroom and create a quaint atmosphere.
Hearts in the Bedroom
Create a natural oasis with this outdoors inspired wicker lantern and be mesmerised by the flickering heart….
If the home spun look is more your thing, why not get creative and make fun heart bunting to stylize your headboard! They’re so simple to make!
So, have we managed to inspire you – is there a place for hearts in your home? Remember, incorporating Valentines inspiration isn’t limited to heart shaped decor. Check back next week for more holiday inspired design tips!
