Now that the pine needles are cleaned up and Christmas decor is all put away, my home has been feeling so bare. The mantel needed something but what? I do not go all out in the Valentine’s Day decor. It’s just not my style, but I like giving a gentle nod to the holiday. If you feel the same then may I suggest a Neutral Valentine’s Mantel? This year’s mantel could also be called my coastal Valentine’s Day mantel too. Because after all these crazy cold temps we have had, I’m longing for warm summer days at the beach!

Neutral Valentine's Mantel -

I so agree with this statement on the art, don’t you?

On a shopping trip to Michaels Crafts I found MDF letters letters that will stand on their own. I purchased an “X & O” (which are symbols for kisses and hugs). They were black so I gave them a quick spray of white primer.

The coastal canvas art is from Joss & Main (affiliate link). I adore Joss & Main. I don’t think the canvas is available currently, but I have seen it come back for purchase often.

My simple heart banner was pulled out of the attic from last year and strung below. This easy Valentine craft has faux capiz shell hearts, paper hearts, and book page hearts. Nice, light, and subtle is the look we’re going for.

Fresh flowers are a must for any Valentine’s Day decor. White roses would have been beautiful, but a simple pairing of soft baby’s breath and white mini carnations creates a romantic and casual bouquet that will last longer. The rattan vase is from HomeGoods.

More pops of white are added to the neutral Valentine’s mantel, like white pillar candles and a sea urchin sculpture by Nate Berkus for Target.

A large blue green glass vase is filled with wine corks and and an arrangement of soft pussy willow stems.

  1. I adore this.. I was wondering how you were going to pull this off, and sure enough you did it. I may have to create one of those banners for my own mantel next month! I also can never get enough with your cork-filled vase. *sigh*

  2. You got it done! 🙂 Pretty!

  3. Love-ly indeed! You have a great mantel to start with and you have decorated so nicely for Valentine’s. I especially like all the pretty neutrals and textures. I adore carnations and they look so pretty in the vase with the baby’s breath.

  4. Such a beautiful mantle Kim! I love it all and so serene.
