Welcome to our newest D-Happ series, Tuesday Huesday. Each week, we’ll share a new color combination inspired by a photo we love, whether it’s an amazing designer space, the label on a vintage jar or a confetti-inspired party backdrop.

Since we’re a mere two days away from Valentine’s Day, today’s bedroom color palette is all about hot pink. It’s a classic color, but it feels modern when paired with warm gray, dusty pink and bright turquoise. The white, black and navy accents keep it from being 100-percent girly. (It’s a mere 90-percent girly.)

Have any big plans this weekend? With the day of love right around the corner, I’ll be hanging out with my little lovebug Lulu, making Valentines for her classmates.

Play Dough Valentines

This year we are skipping the candy and making these sweet homemade play dough Valentines. I love this project because it’s a no-cook play dough recipe, so little kids can help out.

Have you heard that Knoxville, Tenn. has been named the Most Romantic City in the US by Amazon.com? That may come as a surprise to a lot of you, but as the hometown of Design Happens and HGTV,  it’s really only appropriate.

Since the majority of D-Happ’s bloggers live in Knoxville, how could we not be inspired by our surroundings? Just look at how we roll.
