Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day, folks. We’re keeping the festivities going this week with lots more romance-inspired recipes, do-it-yourself crafts, and ideas to incorporate into your own V-day festivities. But first, this unabashedly lovey dovey inspiration board. Red has long been my favorite color, so I chose to keep this palette clean with little more than the fiery hue, plus black and white accents. Throw in a few cameos from famously amorous ladies like Twiggy, Edie and Marilyn, and our vibe took a slight retro turn. Stay tuned for more goodness before the 14th, and we’d love to hear what colors and motifs you’re loving this time of year.
