Decorating with Red and Valentines Day

With the upcoming Valentine’s holiday coming this week, I wanted to write a bit about decorating for this holiday and the color Red!  Often, once the kids have grown, and there are no little ones about, we tend to forgo decorating for this holiday.  Hopefully I can inspire you with these simple ideas for a tasteful way to decorate for this holiday and add a beautiful splash of Red to your décor.

Logo-JPEG-1The color red is one of my favorite colors!  As you can see, it is prominently displayed in my logo!  In Feng Shui, Red is a Fire Element, a color of passion and high energy.  It can be an overpowering color, but used correctly it can add the perfect pop to any room.

Here are a few ideas to add that pop that you may be looking for:

It’s always lovely to see a decorated mantel, which is easy to do by adding red pillar candles or by using floral arrangements in red and pink.  So pull out that red vase and add a splash of Valentine’s Love to your home!
