Full disclosure, I’m kind of freaking out with excitement about today’s post. Like jumping up and down, doing a happy dance level excitement! Ever since I connected with the amazing Rhian Awni, the uber-talented artist we collaborate with for all of our seasonal phone wallpapers and backgrounds, I’ve been dying to create wallpapers for my very favorite holiday – Valentine’s Day! I have a totally unapologetic, long-standing love affair with the most Hallmarky of Hallmark holidays, and I think a huge part of that is due to the fact that it’s my favorite time of year on the design and decor front. The abundance of pink, purple, hearts and flowers everywhere is pure heaven in my eyes! Which is why when Rhian told me that she created a brand new set of Valentine’s Day watercolor illustrations last year that I could use to create new Valentine’s Day desktop backdrops and phone wallpapers for you guys, I was beyond pumped to get to work and bring these to life so you guys could enjoy them this season!
To say that I was in hog heaven designing these is the understatement of the century. I’ve been a little under the weather as of late, which has made blog and home improvement work a little tougher to tackle over the last few months, but creating these totally turned that around and injected my life with all kinds of excitement. It was just what I needed! When I create our seasonal wallpapers I always feel like I need to hold back on the pink a little bit and balance the designs out with other colors, but it’s always really, really hard to control myself. I’m not even a little bit ashamed to say that my love for pink knows no bounds, so I’m working on these designs everything looks better to my eye against a pretty pink backdrop. But this time around my pink-loving heart felt totally free to inject all the pink I could handle into these Valentine’s Day-inspired designs with reckless abandon, and it was complete and utter bliss. It was all my wallpaper dreams come true! What’s more, I feel like unlike some of the other seasons’ designs, this season’s set of wallpapers can be used all year round, not just over the course of the next month or so. Love is evergreen, right? Right.
As a side note, I also threw one in that’s sort of my little nod to every romance lover’s favorite new streaming obsession as of late, the super steamy, totally bingeable Bridgerton! Can you guess which one it is? I’ll give you a hint: there are two different watercolor illustrations included in this one, and paired together they totally reminded me of all things regency romance. Drop a comment if you can guess which one it is!
But enough about how much I love these particular designs. What’s important is that you guys love them, and I really hope you do! Both Rhian and I have been completely bowled over by your support for our seasonal wallpapers and backgrounds over the last few years, and I just can’t tell you how much it means to us when you download, share and enjoy these. It makes our hearts so happy, and your enthusiasm for these has really the fueled the design fun for us. We love nothing more than seeing you tag us on Instagram with all of the ways you’re using these in every season.
And as a reminder, if you’re as in love with Rhian’s adorable art as I am you’ll be happy to know that you can commission her to create custom art for you of all kinds, for any occasion, milestone or moment in your life. How amazing is that? Wedding invitations, Save the Dates, branding and logos, family portraits, illustrations of your home, pet portraits, book covers, and so much more. If you can dream it, she can create it. She’s that good. If you’re reading this thinking, “Yes, please!” you can find her offerings on Etsy or you can email her at Reani.firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll make all your dreams come true! And if you’re not already, make sure you follow her on Instagram to see what she’s currently working on — the inspiration in her feed is endless and it’s so fun to watch her work on her Stories!
So happy love season, friends. I hope it’s filled with all the hearts, candy, flowers and kisses you can handle. Cheers!
