Pink: It's not just for Valentine's Day

Pink isn’t just for Valentine’s Day, and it’s not just for little girls’ rooms, either.  The color is undoubtedly feminine, but it can be sophisticated and rich. Check out the terrific use of the color in these interiors.

I’m in love with the pink used in the dining room with the Chinese Chippendale chairs.  But I’d also take a pink sofa any day!  A little pink decor in a house full of boys could help keep me sane!  Do you decorate with pink?  If so, where and how?

Wishing you a wonderful Valentine’s Day full of love and friendship!

The word vintage is synonymous with wine.  Since I love wine, and it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d take a break from writing about vintage decor, and write about vintage wine.  Okay, well, not really vintage wine…  just wine.   I’m just trying really hard to tie in wine today, can you tell?!

I’ll be the first to admit, I am not a picky wine drinker.  I can enjoy a cheap bottle of wine (and I mean cheap… well, not Boone’s Farm cheap…) just as well as a more expensive one.  Even though we don’t mind the cheaper bottles, my husband and I sure do notice when we’ve opened a nice bottle of wine!  That’s what we’ll be doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day… sitting at home in our living room, away from the TV, eating some cheese and hors d’oeuvres, and enjoying a glass of wine.

Since I have wine on the mind, here are some fun and useful wine pins I’ve compiled from Pinterest:

I’ve never met a cheese I didn’t like.

Based on this, I’m a “Bold & Fruity” kind of girl.  How about you?

Do I get Brownie points if I base my menu on this graph?

Oh how I love a white plate filled with cheese, crackers and fruit!

This is very handy, although I am not above a red solo cup on the beach!

I’m a “cute label/cab” drinker!  What about you?

An absolute truth.

Just to throw in a little decor after all, isn’t this room AMAZING?

 

You can find these pins on my Pinterest boards, along with many others!

Wishing you a happy Valentine’s Day!
