Good morning friends, I thought it would be fun to post my Valentine’s Day decor from last year. I love looking back, even if it is just one year, to see the progression of change. I was 4 months into my blog this time last year, and trudging forward with a creative escape.
I went for the shabby chic look last year. It’s so fun viewing these photos, because they are here to inspire you and I for those home decor ruts we all run into. You don’t have to use pink, and can still gather ideas from the simple placement of items like this vignette on a side table.
I was creating a romantic setting for a hashtag challenge in these photos. I remember trying to balance that old window in the background!!
I was learning so much about photography too, and would like to think I have improved by leaps and bounds. One thing I will say for sure, NO FLASH!!
I created a wine cork heart out of stained red corks last year, and posted the super easy tutorial here. A great use for stained red corks!
This next vignette is so busy! I actually migrate more towards simplicity, but admire those of you who can rock a vignette using so many objects, and it doesn’t look “busy” at all! I fee like I failed at this shot, there’s no height, the angle of the photo is all wrong, too much glass and silver. It is washed out. A lot has changed in our bedroom since this photo 😀
I received this tray and bottle set for Christmas last year. Love the simplicity of these roses, I may have to mimic this again.
I loved this shot from last year. My dad gave me my grandmother’s old Bibles. They are so fragile, so I bound them together with ribbon to protect the covers. I love how old books add character to your decor. They are such good space fillers too!
I made a garland out of an old table cloth and some ribbon. You can catch the tutorial here.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I’ll be sharing this year’s Valentine’s decor next <3
