Red & Pink Hearts

Bela and I spent the weekend tracing hearts, cutting them out of scrapbook paper, and pasting littler hearts onto bigger ones. Now our handiwork is hanging all over the house. Everywhere I look there are beautiful red & pink hearts, which has gotten me in the mood for Valentine's Day.

Red and pink are such bright, cheerful colors. Which is exactly what I need to get through February!  I'm not sure I would actually do anything permanently with red & pink in our house, but these designer rooms are definitely fun!


I'm crazy right now for some bench/chair seating, and this room is no exception. While pink chairs might not work in the majority of households, this is a fun vignette that totally works. The shades of red in the window treatment and pillows tie the pink mid-century modern chairs into the otherwise neutral space.

This girly bunk bed room was designed by none other than Sarah Richardson. The graphic wallpaper of pink palm trees and flamingoes with the red polka dot pillows and ottoman are dreamy! Since the room is mostly white, the red & pink aren't overwhelming. Since red is one of the lesser used colors for a little girl's room, I am loving its unexpectedness!

The pink interior of this secretary is a nice contrast to the black paint and brass accents. {Doesn't that big ornate brass frame just look so fancy?? LOVE it!} Painting the inside of a piece of furniture is a really good way to incorporate a fun color into an otherwise traditional or neutral space. Not to mention, it would definitely designate this as my desk. ;)

For over-the-top color, though, this room takes the cake! I love the mix of bubble gum pink walls and red chairs--pretty much everything in this style should be painted glossy red, in my opinion. It just.looks.amazing! The teensy bit of aqua and green on the table (pitcher & plant) is repeated in the pattern on the chair cushion, which balances the intensity of the room's color.

I'm also excited about this e-book from Positively Present. The ABC's of Self-Love is only $8 and features some beautiful graphics that could be printed and hung for daily inspiration... I'm guessing there are some great insights in here and who couldn't use a little more self-love???

Any fun plans for celebrating LOVE day where you are?? Do tell.  :)
