Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so what better time to think about showing your home some love? In the spirit of the day, I thought it would be fun to have a look at some love-inspired items for around the house. These would also make wonderful gifts for the interiors-enthusiast in your life.
Red & White Heart Lambswool Throw
There are few things as romantic as snuggling up under a cosy blanket! Made in Mayo, this beautiful lambswool throw in Tomato & White from Foxford's Nordic Winter range is perfect for those special moments this Valentine's Day.
Love At First Sight Print
Created in Dublin by Frames Etc., this Love At First Sight print inspired by a vision test chart would look great hung as part of an eclectic gallery wall.
Heart Ceramic Bowls
I first fell in love with KaroArt Ceramics when I saw the work of the Dublin-based ceramic artist, Karolina Grudniewska, at the 2015 National Crafts & Design Fair (read my review of the fair here). These gorgeous heart bowls are just the right size to hold jewellery, or to serve sugar, dips, or nibbles. So adorable!
Heart Balloon Cushion
Inspired by world-renowned graffiti artist, Banksy, this soft-feel cushion from We Love Cushions has a graffiti girl and heart-shaped balloon design. Available from Debenhams stores nationwide.
Kiss & Hug Tapestry Kit
What a great idea - a kiss or hug in tapestry form! Designed by Emily Peacock, the finished pieces can either be framed as is or made into gorgeous cushions. Available individually or as a pair, the kits come in two sizes: a small bolster that is a sweet accent on a sofa or bed, and a larger size big enough for two to share. The kit includes the tapestry canvas, Appleton wools, needle, color chart, and full instructions (cushion pad, backing, and pom poms are not included).
Happy Valentine's Day!
