Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!!!
It’s all about love today. But truthfully, every day should be Valentine’s Day.
Every day we should have an emphasis on showing how much we love and care for
those in our lives. Of course, every day cannot be all hearts and flowers.
However, we can show our love for one another in so many ways.
Whether those ways be subtle like a kind note of gratitude,
a phone call to a friend who may need someone who will listen,
or something so memorable as a fistful of flowers . . . you know those that you may
have received from a child who gathered some wildflowers for you on their way home.
Today, this post does have hearts and flowers and some Plum Love – A Great Room Refresh.
It was time to take the winter pillows away.
Maybe it was because I have severe Spring Fever.
We had a taste of Spring the other day with 70 degree weather, but that did not last long
as the temperature dropped almost 30 degrees the next day.
I shopped the house for items in shades of purple and found a long lost
purple vase and filled it with white Hydrangeas and Seeded Eucalyptus.
While browsing through the new issue of Traditional Home,
I was loving all of the pretty Spring colors. I noticed more and more of the
various shades of the Pantone Color of the Year, Ultra Violet,
being used in so many interiors.
So it was time for me to bring out the plum pillows . . . the ones I am “plum crazy” over!
The plum pillow covers first appeared in the Sunroom dressed for Fall last year.
The vignette on the coffee table took on a new look too.
An orchid with flecks of purple was placed in an ironstone tureen.
Purple Spider Mums from Trader Joe’s fill a monogrammed pewter cup.
I added the Plush Pumpkin Red Velvet Hearts to the table
to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
The red with the purple reminds me of the poem that was adopted by the Red Hat Society.
The poem begins something like this:
“When I am old, I shall wear purple with a red hat that doesn’t go” . . .
So the velvet hearts serve two purposes, a beautiful nod to Valentine’s Day
and my “red hat” for the room.
Another vignette with lavender sits on top of the antique French bamboo stool.
Pillows of shades of purple/plum and beige tones fill the sofa.
The white pitcher on the mantel gets pretty mums too.
I must admit, I am truly loving the shades of plum and purple in this room.
I love the beautiful shades of purple. So regal . . .
and who doesn’t love regal!
I wish you all very Happy Valentine’s Day!
May it be a most beautiful one!
