We enjoy writing these types of posts to introduce you into our homes and our own personal design styles. We each have our own side or way of doing things, which makes us unique. When decorating for specific holidays these distinct styles carry through. This month, we added decorations to our homes in honor of Valentine’s Day and our looks couldn’t be more different. We feel that this is a good thing as it will give you two completely different “sides” or sets of inspiration to follow when decorating your own home.

T Side: Red has always been one of my favorite colors, and so this year I chose to incorporate it into all areas of my Valentine’s decor. I added in traditional heart touches to complete this look in honor of finding the love that this holiday represents.

 I created this tissue paper and doilie bunting at this month ‘s Craft Club meeting. I added some special details to dress it up such as  red sparkly hearts and a glittered red tulle bow.

Lauren gave me this amazing black cake plate for our birthday this year, and I thought it would be fun to use it to display candles. This large silver candle from Anthropologie is my favorite. I’ve been told the scent is the one you are greeted by when entering the store.

 I have been enjoying displaying my calendar pages each month as inspiration for planning events. It hangs in my kitchen making it easily accessible. As I don’t use my stove as often as I’d like, I chose to fill it with one of my favorite things … chocolate!

L Side: One of the things I look forward to most about Valentine’s Day is that little box of Conversation Hearts given to me by my mother with my nickname “Lauren Love” scrawled across it each year. This year, I decided one small box was simply not enough. In fact, I chose to base my whole design on this concept.

This heart garland was made at this month’s Craft Club meeting. I tied the whole thing together with pink paper, a love print that I created myself, and turquoise, yellow, and white twine for a little bit of color.

Glass jars were filled with Conversation Hearts and other festive candies and embellished with heart details to tie everything together.

Other candy and candle holders around the living room were also embellished to match the overall look.

“Sometimes we are the same, sometimes we are different, but we are always twin sisters.” As you can see we each have our own style when adding Valentine’s Day decor into our homes, which “side” do you relate to most?
