Blogger Home Tour: Five Simple Ways to Add LUV to Your Home for Valentine’s Day

Hey y’all! Hopefully you’re making the loop and stopping by my home tour after visiting Deborah’s blog at B Vintage. If so, thanks so much for stopping by here as well. Is her home gorgeous, or what?! If you like what you see, I hope you’ll subscribe to LUVBEC.COM and maybe even give me a follow on Instagram. I’ve teamed up with some of my friends to share 5 simple ways we’re decorating for LUV Day! In true Luv, Bec-fashion, my decor inspiration is simple, minimal and consists of a lot of natural pieces and pops of pink.

Coming right off of all of the holiday hoopla, and just having taken down all of my Christmas decor, I just can’t stomach the idea of adding a ton of decorations back into my clean spaces. Having said that, my kids LUV when I make a point to honor each holiday and do something that makes the day stand out and feel a little special. And let’s get real… I’m a decorator. So, NOT decorating for a holiday pretty much goes against my religion. So for my Valentine’s Day decor, I keep it very simple with fresh spring flowers in hues of pink and red and my favorite way to add in simple holiday decor… throw pillows & banners/garland.

I got this simple mirrored “I LOVE YOU” banner at Target last year, but I’ve linked some other similar options for you at the bottom of this post, along with some other awesome options to add a little LUV to your home. The  amazing scripted”love” art was custom-made for me by my friend Aedriel. It’s usually above my desk, but I always rotate it down into the family room this time of year, as it’s obviously the perfect decor for Love Day.

Shop the these amazing cactus silk Moroccan vintage pillow covers & the other items you see here in my family room:

Fresh flowers are the number one way I LUV to add Valentine’s Day and spring to my home. I’m a big advocate of picking up some inexpensive floral at the grocery store each week. I can usually get a simple bouquet for only $4, so for less than a cup of Starbucks, I can add a little happy to my home for the week. Having fresh flowers around just makes me smile. Life is short- add happy wherever you can. 🙂

Another simple thing I like to add to my kitchen table each holiday are decorative straws. My kids LUV to throw straws in their cups, so adding some decorative ones to a clear mason jar is a little something simple for the kids and it adds a simple touch of the holiday to the space. I usually find mine in the Dollar Spot at Target, (I found the ones photographed there as well.), so for $1-3 dollars, I have a cute decorative item on my table that makes the kids happy. Win. Win.

Shop my new kitchen table, chairs and lighting (along with some other items you see in this kitchen space) here:

Finally, my daughter’s room is usually the space that gets the most LUV. She really LUV’s when I add a decorative banner to her chalkboard. I found this one also in the Dollar Spot at Target.I also found the pink sparkly pillow you see in the Dollar Spot for $5. But bonus- it matches her room, so it can stay put after the holiday. She also picked out her own natural greenery last time we went to Lowe’s together and her own little pink planter. Adding that to her desk also brought in a cute touch of pink… always need at least a bit of greenery in each room. 😉

I’ve linked her pink bed, floral bedding, pendant light (THAT IS ON CLEARANCE!) and some of the other items in my daughter’s room:

However you add LUV to your home, I hope it’s something that puts a smile on your face and brings happiness to your heart.Remember, it doesn’t have to be elaborate. Throw a cute decorative pillow on the couch or a pink throw blanket and some bright fresh flowers, and you have an instant update. I’ve compiled links to some of my favorite Valentine’s Day decor that will help you add a little LUV to your home in simple ways as well…
