Pretty In Pink~My Valentine's Living Room

I had so much fun making my living room all frilly and romantic for Valentine's day!

I made a very simple little garland that I hung on my metal wall art.
I used a heart punch and scrapbook paper and laced twine in between holes I punched in the hearts.

If you want to know how I made the LOVE pillow click here.

On the side table is a topiary, a homemade chalk board made from a thrift store tray and a candle.
My older son was teasing me about trying to do fancy writing on the blackboard.
I started laughing and said "honey this is nothing! You should see the fancy blackboards some blogger's make...they take hours!"

I love this candle!

What girl wouldn't love a pink map of Paris?

I am using a ruffly throw from Ikea, partly because it's pretty and romantic and partly to cover a dirty spot on my slip cover.
I am dreading washing this thing!

On the table...a romatical tray.
I always love it when Paula Dean says "romantical". :)

Pretty pink flowers in a white pitcher.

Candle holders from Michael's that I decide to use as little vases holding baby breath.

Another candle with a bit of pink.
I think I got it from World Market.

The white tray is from Ikea.

I scattered a few hearts on the tray as well.

Well that about covers it.
I just had to throw in a few more pictures.
I live in a house of boys and I am really enjoying all my bits of pink corralled together!

  1. That pink Paris map is awesome! And those pictures of the candle with potted white flowers look SO romantically beautiful. <3

  2. It's looking good Lisa. I love your pillow looks so pretty and so does your garland. Oh and the flowers and hearts. Ok, it all looks amamzing - as usual!!

  3. This is so pretty and very romantic! I love the couch. It looks so inviting.
    I'd love it if you linked this to my new linky party, "What We've Accomplished Wednesdays." It is live right now.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Very delightful atmoshere! Great work. Thanks for sharing

  6. It's've added such sweet, soft touches!!

  7. It's so pretty in pink. And very romantical! ;)

  8. Hi Lisa,
    This is so beautiful. I love all the soft and simple touches to your already gorgeous living room.


  9. That soft pink looks so pretty in there. You chose the perfect color to use for Valentine's Day.

  10. Yes... I adore your sweet decor for the holiday. Lovely touches here and there! But, now don't laugh, but my eyes lighted on your windows! I love your windows.. how wide and how low they are. With all our moves, we've had windows of various sizes and I will always remember the house that had the low windows. Great for dogs to look out and great for toddlers to see what's going on outside. I know... silly me but those moments hold such fond memories for me!

  11. How Beautiful! I had to go over all of these pictures twice... so romantic and serene...

  12. So pretty Lisa!LOVE that pop of pink with shades of white and gray!What beautiful flowers!

  13. Your room looks so pretty all decked out for Valentine Day. I like the subtle touches of pink you added. I love the throw from Ikea too. I have one as well. It is so romantic looking!

  14. The pink is fresh and subtle. Beautiful! I think my favorite is the tray, cause you know I can't style to save my life.

  15. Hi, Lisa - We love you, too ;) So pretty! It's always a treat to enjoy your living room. I love the candle holders as vases.

  16. This is definitely romantical! The pink flowers are such a great touch. I threw my slipcover in the wash and was thinking it was going to be a huge pain to put back on, but it really wasn't a big deal. Go for it! Although, I like the throw the way you have it to hide the spot. :)

  17. very cool Lisa.....the little garland is so cute!!!! BTW I did start a blog a couple of weeks ago....still learning from Pros like flattered if you stopped by

  18. What a pretty room. Saw you at the party at FMFPTY. ~Kristie

  19. It is lovely. The white and pink make me smile and not a lot of smiling is happening here I tell you. I once went to a yard sale where a woman was selling all of her pretty white and soft things because she had a house full of boys. I told her I would have one room for myself.

  20. Your touches of pink make such a romantic living room. Good for our boys to have some girly influences!!

  23. LOVE LOVE LOVE this! So sweet and simple ;)
