Love in the Master

Hi Everyone!

Don't raise your eyebrows at my post title - I am talking about a little Valentine decor in our master bedroom today, lol.

I don't do much Valentine decor. It is a pretty fast passing holiday and I do a little bit on the main level of our house (see my kitchen chandelier here).  That's about it.  But this year, I thought the red color scheme I have going for the winter would be a perfect backdrop for a touch of February love.

The curtain panels are made from Pottery Barn tablecloths which I told you about in this post.  Love them.  I am still going back and forth on what fabric to cover my burgandy wing chair with, so a white sherpa throw is a current stand in.

The old bench made from a vintage sign was something I scored last summer at one my favorite antique malls.  It still makes me smile, and I love how my little fireplace looks on it.

The rocking chair is one my mom refinished years ago when I was just a kid. It always sat in our kitchen.

The "You Are My Sunshine" word art is also a winner for us and is a daily reminder of our honeymoon in Nashville back in 1982.

Such a cozy spot to read by "the fire."

I picked up this "love" pillow a month or so ago at Kohl's.  I had some "Kohl's Cash" and was able to pick it up for next to nothing.  Whenever I get the "cash" I usually spend it on something fun.  This pillow is a fun, crewel-look pillow and looks far more expensive than the asking price.

 I found some old book boxes that had the word "love" on them and set them on the bench, along with a pretty tile my daughter made when she was in school.

And speaking of love....I think today is a perfect day to cozy up to the fire with one of my favorite books, "To Kill A Mockingbird"  by Harper Lee.  My daughter gave me a leather bound copy a few years ago, and it is definitely one my treasures.  

So that's my love story for today!  Now it's time to settle in with my book and brace myself for the blizzard (yes, we are experiencing a blizzard today). Plus there is a little football game on tonight!

  1. Hahaha! I love your LOVE pillow and the curtains Jane!

  2. I almost bought that pillow Jane but forgot about it and didn't feel like going back into the store! I also love your little fireplace!

  3. I love your red curtains! They are very pretty.

  4. Hi Jane. Wow, I really love your spot in your bedroom!. I guess I haven't seen it before. It looks so cozy and charming. I love your curtains. The pretty red print, blended with the black and white checks is just perfect. I love mixing different prints together and yours looks just right. I think your little stove is very close to the one we have in the guest room. It works so well and makes it's corner very cozy..Happy Monday..Judy

  5. That sitting area looks so cozy around your fireplace. I usually forget to use my Kohls cash before it expires. I need to do better about that. That Love pillow that you found is darling. I also like the grey and white one in your rocking chair. Is that new?

  6. What a great post! Love it! Pinned and tweeted. We love to party with you, so I hope to see you tonight at 7 pm. That would be so awesome.
    Happy Monday! Lou Lou Girls

  7. Red is my favorite color, and I think your curtains are beautiful. The pillow too, super cute.
