Easy and subtle Valentine’s Day decor ideas can help you love your home for the whole month of February. And I’m here to help ;).
I never used to like the color pink.
In fact – it was one of my least favorite colors…
When my first child was born, my husband was in grad school so the majority of my new daughter’s clothes were hand me downs from my sister’s boys! I.E. – not a whole lot of pink on my little baby girl.
But a whole lot of blues! Which btw – is still #1 on my favorite colors list.
And somehow in the last five years, pink has not only risen on that favorites list, it has landed in the top three!
Especially blush pink.
So nowadays, decorating with neutral Valentine’s Day decor makes me love my home in February.
Also – blush pink can easily transition into spring decor. So there’s that ;).

Easy and Subtle Valentine’s Day Decor Ideas
In the Kitchen
Besides Christmas, I don’t decorate much for the rest of the holidays. Thus the easy and subtle.
But, the kitchen is honestly the easiest place to add a little touch of neutral Valentine’s Day decor.
We replaced a couple of our upper kitchen cabinets with open shelves about four years ago. You can read all about that in a post here ;).
Open shelves can be one of the most fun places to decorate for all the holidays.
And Valentine’s Day is no exception ❤️.
The wooden hearts are all from an Instagram friend’s Etsy shop called Rustic Occasion.
She sells many different types of holiday cutouts – including Christmas, Easter, and Fourth of July ;).
I recently stumbled across another small shop called The Little Market. It is a mission driven non-profit organization that is helping to make a difference in the economic self sufficiency of women and underserved populations around the globe by selling their artisan wares.
I personally have already purchased gift bags, garlands, and ceramic bowls from this shop and know for certain I will be frequenting it in the future as I look for other decorative items ;).
The bowls below are one of my favorites from The Little Market and are a perfect addition to my neutral Valentine’s Day decor in the kitchen ;).
I also add a touch of neutral Valentine’s Day decor to my range hood…
This XOXO blush garland is from The Little Market as well. And I already have my eye on the blue star garland they sell for my patriotic decor in May!!
The heart wreath is another new find this year and can be found here.
And the last bit of subtle Valentine’s Day decor in my kitchen is of course – pink dish towels and heart spatulas!! If you have been around here for a while – you are fully aware of my dish towel/spatula cabinet that is completely full because it is one of my favorite holiday decorations for each season 🤷♀️.
The fabric hearts were an Etsy find last year that you can find here!
On the Mantel
Besides my open shelves, the family room mantel would probably be my second favorite place to put seasonal decor.
Sadly, I have searched high and low for a string tassel garland like I found a few years ago and cannot find anything similar for you. If you search in Etsy, you can find plenty of paper garlands or yarn garlands with wooden beads but nothing as simple as the one above ;(.
If I find one in my scrolling – I will be sure to come back here and add the link! The gold garland is my McGee and Co Christmas tree garland that have repurposed ;).
On the Table
My kitchen table has been so much fun to add some festive neutral and pink decor to this year!! I bought myself some pink and white roses at Trader Joes yesterday too and now I can’t take my eyes off how pretty this space turned out 💕.
In the Family Room
Have you ever walked into a local decor shop and found the cutest pillow and wished you could know the maker so that you could buy more of them?
I cannot be alone in this shopping sadness…
That said – I found this three embroidered hearts pillow cover at a small shop here in my hometown and think it is just one of the cutest additions to my neutral Valentine’s Day decor collection!
I would easily buy more pillows from this maker if I even knew who it was!!
In Random Little Spots Around the House
I have a walk space separating my dining room from my kitchen nook/family room that my bar cart is kept in.
It has been (once again) – a favorite little space of mine to decorate ;).
The little signs of what season it is in this space are just a bowl of fabric hearts and a bouquet of dried pink flowers. Just enough to feel the beauty of the month of February ;).
I hope you were able to find a little bit of inspiration in this post for some easy and subtle Valentine’s Day decor ideas. I know with the end of Christmas season and the month of January putting so many of my friends (and myself) in a funk – starting February off with some pink roses and decor was the perfect pretty way to start the new month!!
Next week I will be joining more blogger friends again to share Valentine’s Day flower inspo! Now that is a post I am excited to start writing! And of course – as always – I cannot wait to see what my blogger besties share with you as well ;).
