One of my favorite hobbies to do is to decorate. I always wanted to be an interior decorator but ended up working in a Corporation for years and years. My passion is decorating my home. I love all things pretty and just get excited when my eyes are pleased when seeing something beautiful.
Simplicity is key for me. I don’t like to over-decorate or have anything too busy. I like very simple, elegant pieces that make a statement. I have always found less is more and quality over quantity.
With that being said, I love to place some lovely sweet touches in our home this time of year. Even though I don’t go all out for Vaelentine’s Day, I do love all the “love” decor, flowers and candy! After Christmas and before Spring is pretty much simple decor in my home. I have kept some pieces from Christmas that I bought at Target and just thought they were the cutest pieces ever. They are white, ceramic houses. They remind me of our first little home my husband and I bought as newlyweds twenty-two years ago. I left these houses on top of my fireplace mantel.
The best part about decorating simple and elegant is that it can be used all year long!
Here, I show you some pieces that I have decorated throughout our home and hope they inspire you to decorate your space. The important thing is to use your imagination and what you love.
White ceramic houses are still on my mantel from the Target Dollar Spot during Christmas time for $3 each. I still love them! These white vases are everywhere throughout my home from IKEA. Boxwood trees are from Target.
Here on our dining table, I placed some peonies and eucalyptus in vases and kept my candle/pillars on each side.
I go over everything about the candy bar cart in this post: Candy Bar Cart
Macarons & fresh roses are the sweetest combination!
Enjoy this day and remember, we should always celebrate love 24 hours a day and 7 days a week!
