Valentine’s Decor vignettes – 3 color ways

Now that the calendar has turned to February the focus is on the love holiday mid month. Injecting seasonal decor into our homes is an easy way to keep it fresh and festive. Here are some Valentine’s Decor vignettes using three different color palettes.

I love to add seasonal touches to our home and always try to create new decor. Last year I created these three vignettes {valentine’s day vignettes – 3 ways}. This year I decided to change it up and create the vignettes around different color families.

I prefer to create unique pieces for our home since I enjoy crafting. Come on in and enjoy some of the Valentine’s decor vignettes in our home.

Roses are Red

As I continuously express, I do not use much red. I don’t decorate with red around the holidays; I do not have red flowers in my garden; I don’t buy red in my accessories and outfits. You get the picture.

So….using red in my decor is always challenging, but with just a few key pieces I created this red Valentine’s Day vignette on the coffee table in the family room. The family room tends to be a relaxed room in the home and ours has rustic, farmhouse vibes.

I used the moss heart wreath I created here {heart wreath} as the back drop. The wreath is made of primarily neutral and organic materials, but the teeny, tiny red velvet ribbon ties it into the color scheme.

The red mercury glass vase is the chief of the display and sets the tone {no pun intended}. The red books along with few red hearts bring everything together. The “be mine” scrabble tiles grounds the vignette to it’s Valentine’s theme. Fun, huh?

The oversized moss ball in the footed metal bowl and the candle are regulars on the coffee table tray. The candle sits in a crown on a thrifted, vintage transfer ware plate. I left these in the Valentine’s decor vignette, since they coordinate.

Pretty in Pink

Anybody else singing it in their head? For all of those who grew up in the 80s, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Anyway, the soft pinks in this vignette, give all the romantic and shabby chic feels.

I set this vignette on the bombe chest in the foyer, which I always like to dress up for the different seasons and holidays. You can see guidelines to setting up your entryway here {how to decorate a spring foyer}.

Candles, hearts and lots of pink hues gives this vignette the soft, subtle shabby chic feels. Instead of fresh flowers I opted for the preserved olive branches in the rattan vase and the super fun feathers in a pink ball jar. I have organic, boho and vintage all rolled up in this vignette!

The sheet music also echoes those romantic vintage vibes. I used vintage sheet music to cover some books {7 ways to decorate books}, decoupage some hearts {sweet notes for Valentine’s Day}, and cretae the coasters I recently shared {vintage sheet music coasters DIY}.

As a backdrop a galvanized heart and arrow hang on the mirror with some soft pink velvet ribbon, which is also echoed on the vases. I love all the romantic vibes this vignette gives off, and it reminds me of last year’s vignette {Valentine’s Day on a tray blog tour}.

Heart of Gold

The last Valentine’s vignette steps outside the norm with gold tones and yellows leading the way. It’s set on the dining room sideboard with vintage gold frames as a back drop. It has nostalgic tones with vintage vibes and even a bit of religious touches.

Roses are not the flowers I usually gravitate to, but in soft creams and blush tones I can’t resist. You can read about our wedding roses here {faded blooms then and now}. I added some cream dried roses and metal roses and rose smudge sticks to evoke the romantic rose feeling that is so prominent on Valentine’s day.

There are golden hearts in a porcelain compote on one side of the sideboard. On the other side golden keys sit on a wooden bowl, you know the whole keys to my heart thing.

As I am preparing and staging for this post I ran across my aunt’s | godmother’s rosary beads. The amber beads spoke to me, and the virgin Mary statue was in with my candle stash so she came out as well. Didn’t mean for it to have religious notes, but it works for me.

The golds, brass and yellows all work well together. Although it’s not your traditional Valentine’s colors, it makes for a fun Valentine’s decor vignette, which fits my style. It’s something a little bit different, but still festive.

While I was preparing all the details for these Valentine’s decor vignettes for this post I had to run some errands. I was searching for some tiny rhinestones for my daughter, which brought me to all the craft stores, JoAnn, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby. Of course while I am searching for said rhinestones, I had to peruse all the isles to check out seasonal and fun decor, etc. And lo and behold, I come across this…

A mushroom garland in the exact colors I chose for this post, red, pink & gold. I wasn’t shopping for a mushroom garland, nor do I need a mushroom garland, but gosh it had to come home with me. It was calling my name so loudly I could.not.walk.away. It was on sale so that clinched the deal. For those who have been around here and know me, I have a thing for mushrooms. I have a project planned for this garland, which I will be sharing real soon.

Back to our regularly scheduled program, I hope you enjoyed the Valentine’s decor vignettes. It was fun to see how each color palette developed a different vibe, from playful, to romantic, to spiritual. Let me know which one is your favorite.
