I try and keep Valentine’s Day Decor sweet and simple around here. Maybe it’s just because Pink and Red aren’t my decor colors of choice. So when I can add simple touches that blend in with my existing decor, that makes me happy! Today I’m sharing this sweet corner of our master bedroom. The whole room is still a work in progress, but I did manage to hang up some of my romantic artwork featuring the song lyrics from our first dance at our wedding, and the two canvases where I hand lettered copies of our love letters from when he was in bootcamp for the USMC (see that whole DIY tutorial HERE)
You all know that I tend to lean more towards a minimal style of home decor.
Less stuff just means that the pieces you do have will “pop” all the more.
But I do like small collections of items. For this table beside our bed, I paired some dark amber bottles next to our rusty marquess arrow to pull out those natural brown tones.
I’m a sucker for romance. But formal, hand written love letters seem to be a thing of the past due to the digital nature of communication these days. Well, thanks to good old Uncle Sam, Silas and I were only able to communicate the old fashioned way during pretty much the whole first year of him being in the USMC. So we had to write instead of talk. Those letters are gold to me. So I picked out one of my favorites from him, and had him do the same, and I filled two canvases with hand lettered versions of those letters. And now they are hanging in our master.
These two art pieces have been in our last three homes, and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of them. As humans, we can sometimes temporarily lose sight of the romance part of a relationship… the part that brought us together in the first place. So I love having this reminder of how strong our love & dedication to each other is. After 8 years of marriage, I’m only crazier for him.
So can there be any better Valentines Day Decor for our home than this? I think not! This method also would work great for transforming digital texts messages, wedding vows, or any long distance communications (deployment, college, etc) into beautiful reminders.
I also have the lyrics to our first dance from our wedding hanging above our bed. I lettered it in a similar style. The song is “You’ll Be In My Heart” by Phil Collins.
These pieces of love letter artwork will stay up all year long, but they are the perfect touch of Valentines Day Decor in our little farmhouse.
