Hello everyone and HAPPY (almost) VALENTINE'S DAY!!! Thanks for hosting Laurie, this is so fun!
At first, for weeks, I decided on different tablescapes to represent the upcoming V-Day on Laurie's party. Then time got away from me... With different projects and looking for a house for our pending move in August, things just piled up. But one thing for sure, I wanted to end our winter doldrums... From burgundy plaid flannel to... a bit of Morocco!
Not even our sudden onset of "whole day of snow" can dampen my resolve to join in on Laurie's partay!
I love the vibrant colors of Morocco, but I also know that I just want "punches" of those vibrant hues so I went with shimmery minty blue, a hint of silver, pewter, beige and brown. What do you think?
I got all of these accessories at Ross, the flower print, stayed because it gave just the right punch of red to draw your eye up.
Since I couldn't change out my "country-ish" headboard, I chose to compliment it with calming shades... My inspiration, this pair of embroidered flower heads on silvery minty blue pillows.
The Morocco bit, are on each night stand. I've seen the morrocan decor- layers of colors- complimentary and bright so I did the same thing for this vignette! (modern conveniences like cordless phone bases, have a place in Morocco, too! lol)
Here's proof that the vignette is in the same room. ;-)
Just by candlelight...
I didn't use to be a big Valentine's Day aficionado, and I'm still not, but once in a while... Those romance genes kick in and the bedroom gets a sizzling make-over!
Thanks again Laurie for such a great party! And to all of you for stopping by! See you at your blog!
TABLESCAPING IDEAS: "Brain" is in love... Have a fave vignette from another part of your home, take either the same or similar items and recreate it on your table, and "voila!" you have a great looking and dramatic center or end piece!
Watch out for my V-day tablescapes, coming soon!
