With a house full of boys, Rachel of Maison de Pax has never been one to go over-the-top for Valentine’s Day. However, pillows sporting frayed X’s and O’s caught Rachel’s eye as a subtle way to show a little love. Rachel whipped a pair up with rich red velvet and leftover drop cloth for only $4 a piece and couldn’t be more pleased with the result!
Looking for more subdued Valentine’s décor that doesn’t overload you with red and pink, hearts, and glitter? Look no further than these XOXO pillows that Katie at View from the Fridge sewed up for her home. Katie loves the simple, neutral look and subtle hints at Valentine’s Day. Oh, and of course the price! Katie paid only $25 to make all FOUR pillows, which would have cost her a shocking $600 if purchased from Anthropologie!
