Hello abode LOVERS and Happy Valentines Day to all of you! I am celebrating all of the loves in my life today and hope that all of you are doing the same! Family, friends, Mister Husband and of course my pups. Last night Mr. Hubbs and I went to see The Vow for an early V-Day present for me :) Mr. Hubbs wasn't super pumped about it, but he knew I wanted to see it (thanks hubs)... tonight we will be lounging around and NOT going out on the busiest date night of the year. Anyone else taking it easy??? Anyway, I thought we should celebrate super "valentine-y" looking spaces today... so here you are. Enjoy!
Love this sweet space. I think the stripes are fun and really elongate this space. I think the pale watery aqua color is such a beautiful contrast to the reds used in this space. Anyone else loving that chandelier?? I think it is just SO sweet.
Love that red, pink and orange rug. It adds a ton of color to the space and once again, the stripes elongate the space big time. Those pinky-toned chairs are quirky and add a retro feel to the dining area- and isn't the lighting so fun?
If there was no Mister Husband... I could see this color palette working beautifully in my abode. But let's be honest, life is better with a Hubbs around to balance out all of my femininity. BUT, I still love the soft pink silk drapes and that pale pink armoire.
Wowza. Hello red wall, really, really bright red wall. I think that this little nook works because of the huge mirror to break up the large red wall. I also think that the pale, rustic wood tones in this space even out the harsh quality that this color red can have within a space. The rustic tones of the floor, console and basket really take the edge off...
I LOVE this living room. That red and coral stripes sofa topped with a gorgeous tapestry is just too pretty and it adds so much life into this super neutral space. I think the only reason that the sofa works at all is because of the creamy tones that it's surrounded with. Anyone just dying to take a seat on that beauty???
I'm quite certain I've shared this image on Abode Love before, but it's a goodie! I freakin' love this bright and daring space. I think that the golden hues in the fabrics, frames and artwork ground this space so that it doesn't feel like we're staring into Barbie's dream house! Isn't that large scale chevron chair just to die for??? The answer is "yes."
I love a pink that has a bit of a purple undertone. It's such a warm and rich color. The quilts, lampshades and pillows really make this space sing. I love that the whole space is all about mixing very feminine color and prints with the caramel tone that's seen in the rug, upholstered beds and the bamboo shades. The combination is simply lovely!
Gold, pink, white and black. This is one girly space-- and I LOVE it.
You can't have a whole blog post about pink spaces without including a gorgeous little girl's room. Wouldn't you have died to have a room like this as a little one? I love that it's a kid room packed full of sophistication. The artwork is whimsical and sweet but the way it's been framed and hung really takes the space up a notch. I also love the unexpected black, leather tufted chair beside the bed and the black and white patterned wall to wall carpeting.
The rich caramel wooden beams on the ceiling is the perfect tone to go with the coral walls in this amazing bathroom. I think this may be my favorite bathroom of all time. I am loving the tile- it's spectacular. Also- check out that gorgeous vanity. This would be a very do-able DIY with any great antique table. Just add a sink and a towel bar and you're good to go. I also LOVE the casual feel of the leaning mirror instead of hanging it on the wall. Goodness gracious, I die.
How fun is this dining room. The upholstered chairs at the head and foot of the table bring so much personality into this fresh, bright space. The side chairs are all different and I love that they've all been painted red to make a cohesive set.
I think I may have saved the best for last. This space is so classic and romantic... and then you see that hot pink, super mod chair. I LOVE it. Not only is the color unexpected, but the style is so vastly different than it's surroundings that it just works. I love these unexpected moments in a home... it's what brings personality, a sense of humor and light-heartedness to a space. Hello charming!
Well, I hope all of you abode lovers have a fabulous and love-filled Valentines Day!
