I’m not a gal who does red. If I can help it. At Christmas I will avoid red in my decorations. I’m a green and silver and gold gal. But sometimes, like for Valentine’s Day Decor, even a green gal needs a pop of something that might be a spot of red. Hot pink, too, which is my fave.
I like to have sort of natural elements in my family room decor, but love to give a nod to the romantic notion of Valentine’s Day. When I found this vintage graphic on the www.theGraphicsFairy.com site, I grabbed it with glee, knowing just what I might do with it. Did I mention it’s FREE?!
I had this frame and mat. I printed the birds onto matte photo paper and added it to the frame. I know it is not as wide as the mat.
I could have cut a new, custom mat, but I decided to let go of my perfection-laced tendencies and told myself this is good enough for a glance from across the room sort of temporary decor. Right?
Don’t look at the Haunted title. I just happen to love the black spines of these books, and had them there before I thought to add the last-minute ribbon. The hot pink ribbon was the pop of color I needed to balance the tiny red heart pop on the other side of the mantle, in the birds image.
Not too much. I know. I wanted just a touch of romance. Hubby didn’t even notice the heart… I suppose I might add one to his pillow on February 14th. It might even be red.
