We hope you enjoyed our heart-themed DIY projects and decor suggestions from last week, and while that theme carries into this week, today’s focus will be on decor that is versatile enough to be used for Valentine’s Day as well as throughout the year. A symbol of love, hearts are welcoming and charming accents, and they complement almost any color theme or room design.
As we said in our Chair Pad article last week, dressing up furniture is a simple way to dress up any room in your home. Pillows are versatile accent pieces that you can enjoy for many holidays and seasons, especially when they are adorned with hearts. Our Lace Heart Pillow features an elegant design on red, cotton velveteen fabric. While it is a perfect Valentine’s Day gift or decoration, the lace on the pillow allows it to fit in with any rustic or antiquated home decor during the remaining days of the year. Our Queen of Hearts Pillow features a cute design for cat lovers that is unique and vibrant enough to stand out during Valentine’s Day, yet cozy enough to fit in with your living room or hallway furniture, as well as with other cat decor. And, if your decor is avian inspired, our Heart & Bird Hooked Wool Pillow is a great complement in any room, and the heart creates a loving atmosphere for Valentine’s Day and the rest of the year.
We love offering a variety of braided rugs, chair pads, place mats, and other items that are durable yet decorative. For your living room, our Heart Stencil Jute Rug is perfect for placing before a table holding cherished photos, either year round or just for Valentine’s Day. Its durable jute fibers are tough enough for any high traffic areas within your home, and the red, gray, and black colors complement any primitive decor. Our Heart Rug is available in a variety of colors that are perfect for finishing any cozy theme throughout your home; whether you use it alone as an accent piece or with the Braided Heart Placemats and Braided Heart Trivets. Again, this collection adds a special, loving touch in your home throughout the year in addition to on Valentine’s Day.
Although our heart braids and pillows fit into this category, there are other ornamental pieces that you can be a little more creative with when implementing them into your decorative themes. Lori Mitchell’s Old Fashioned Love Sculpture, for example, can be used on its own to showcase love; it can be added to your personal, year-round Lori Mitchell display; or you can put it among photos or other baubles for Valentine’s Day. The Stained Glass Double Heart can be hung from a small window in a bathroom or kitchen to reflect pretty light, or you can decorate a wreath on a door or wall. Not just for Valentine’s Day, this hanging ornament will be admired wherever you display it, even if you choose to hang it on your Christmas tree!
There are also more subtle decorative avenues you can go down, if you are looking for pieces that make a strong, yet soft statement in your home. Our Heart Medallion Seating incorporates a heart design in your dining room or kitchen, while maintaining a classic and sleek look. The Eight Hearts Medallion wall art complements the seating if used together, or adds intricate detail to a blank wall in any living space. While you may think of heart-shaped picture frames in relation to Valentine’s Day, our Metal Scrolled Heart Photo Frame is traditional enough to go with any ordinary photo frames and decor while featuring an elegant scrolling design you will enjoy looking at. This also makes a great Valentine’s Day gift, especially when filled with a picture of you and your loved one(s).
