Neutral Valentine’s Day Decor -a home tour with simple, neutral, and soft pink decorations for a pretty Valentine’s Day Farmhouse inspired feel.
I’ve added a few simple neutral Valentine’s Day touches to my decor and I’m excited to show you. I mostly stuck to my usual neutral colors, but I couldn’t resist adding a few pops of soft pink here and there for my neutral Valentines decor. And even a little touch of pink is a perfect way to make things feel extra festive.
It really doesn’t take much to make a space feel very Valentines-y, so I hope this inspires you to add a few touches here and there, and celebrate all the love!
Neutral Valentines Decor in the Dining Room
In the dining room, I couldn’t help but use my old favourite wooden bowl full of origami hearts on the dining table. These hearts are so easy to make -you can watch my 3D origami heart video of the instructions here. This is such a great way to turn your regular decor into Valentine’s Day decor and add some different textures. I’ve made them out of different kinds of papers and in different sizes, we even added some pink hearts by watercolouring some book pages. I’ve got the bowl on a beautiful grey sheepskin and love the cozy hygge feeling it creates. It’s one of my favorite Valentine’s Day decorations and a great addition to your modern farmhouse decor for the Valentine’s Day.
The Living Room
And over in the living room, I’ve added a little bit of pink. Although I love my white and cozy neutrals, I just can’t resist at least a little light pink this time of year to help create a romantic atmosphere. I’m not a big fan of traditional reds, but soft pink goes so well with our neutral theme. You could of course keep it completely neutral too if you prefer.
This chair is a favourite of mine -often my desk by day and my cozy tv spot at night. It’s made even more inviting with some pillows.
And nothing says Valentine’s Day like some pretty roses -these ones are just from the grocery store, a little treat to myself. The simple heart is one of the easiest DIY Valentine’s Day decor ideas. We just strung some little wooden beads on to some wire and shaped into a little heart. I love different ways like this to add a little seasonal touch to living spaces.
Over on the couch, more pretty pillows. But I didn’t start from scratch, I kept all my cozy knit and fur winter decor pillows and just added in a pretty peachy pink velvet one and this amazing rose gold sequin heart shape pillow. Even the couch has received a touch a love, and it’s the perfect inviting atmosphere to curl up and enjoy an old romance movie.
The coffee table is like a little tiny stage to dress up for the special occasion. It’s full of tiny treasures and beautiful things.
The pretty little wooden heart tray is such a great piece in neutral tones. And the sweet heart twinkle lights add a touch of romance at night.
This little matte white ceramic heart bowl holds a collection of old keys. I’ve only been to an auction a few times, but this random collection of old keys was part of group of things gathered up together with the item I was actually bidding on. Sometimes you discover treasure in the most unlikely and surprising places. Perfect for Valentine’s Day, maybe one is the key to my heart? I love adding old keys and locks as part of my decor items for Valentine’s day, and it’s an easy way to add interest with some vintage pieces too.
How pretty are the glass cloches? I used them here to display more simple beautiful things -a flower and a pretty candle. Cloches are such a great addition to your home decor.
Neutral Valentines Decor Mantel
On the other side of the room, the fireplace has a few Valentine’s Day touches with a neutral Valentine’s Day mantel. I loved my cozy hygge vibe so much -did you see my tips for hygge living this winter here? All I did was add in some wooden hearts, and bring back the little light up houses from my Christmas decorations last year. After all “home is where the heart is”.
If you’re interested in the macramé bunting or the tassels they’re both DIY projects. The tassel are made from simple cotton string and dip dyed in koolaid -see how I did it here and the macrame bunting is here. Pieces like this are great things to add texture and interest to neutral spaces.
I also wanted to add a few touches of Valentine’s Day to the kitchen.
By shopping around my house I found a few pink pieces that I already had tucked away other places and added them to my open shelving and coffee bar area.
It really doesn’t take much to make it feel like a little love has been sprinkled around and add some fun holiday touches.
I love all the little pops of pink so much, I will be tempted to leave them out for a long while. The heart garland is made is another easy DIY project. I made it from old book pages cut into hearts, some painted with watercolor, and stitched on the sewing machine into a garland. Find the heart garland tutorial here..
This is my first time adding a little Valentine’s Day decor to the kitchen since the makeover for the One Room Challenge in the fall. It’s so much fun to decorate now. See the big reveal, including some before pictures of the kitchen here.
And what a great backdrop the kitchen is now for a pretty Valentine’s day party tablescape.
Valentine’s Day Table
I love the idea of a little cozy kitchen party for just us four -my husband and two little girls, and me.
The pretty neutral Valentine’s Day tables setting has lots of favourites collected from all different places, most of which I’ve had for years.
I used some linen for a table runner and layered on some marble cake stands and twinkle lights. On top of the cake stands I used some little vintage bottles and a few pretty flowers for a simple and so pretty centerpiece.
The cutlery on this table is old mismatched silverware from my antique and thrift stores. There vintage cutlery adds a romantic ambiance with it’s beautiful old tarnished silver. Who knows how many special dinners with loved ones its been used for over the years?
And on my little cabinet in the dining area, one more pretty and special Valentine’s addition. P.S. I love you, and the prettiest little touch of love with our DIY yarn hearts.
There’s a tutorial on how to make the yarn hearts here. They’re so simple to make and entirely up cycled made from styrofoam meat trays and thrifted yarn. Perfect for kids too. Handmade crafts always help add a personal touch to your decor.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this Simple Neutral Valentine’s Day Decor House Tour and that you’re feeling inspired to add a few touches to celebrate the love at your house too.
With a house all decorated for Valentine’s Day, life really is a party!
