Welcome to my Spring Home Tour 2016!
If this is your first time to visit, welcome to my home. If you are a returning guest, I’m so glad you stopped by for another visit. I hope you find some new inspiration for spring.
We’ll begin our tour at the front porch. My porch doesn’t get much sun, so I buy these hardy Japanese Holly Ferns from Lowe’s every year. They grow well in shaded areas, and I love that they are perennials.
This year, I paired it with this lovely purple Alyssum for a pop of color.
As you walk into the entry, you quickly see that I love using natural elements when I decorate. The moss wreath was a fun DIY project I made using a foam circle and some moss I purchased at my local craft store. I paired it with a moss bunny, narcissus, and a terracotta bird dish filled with eggs.
The Living Room got a fresh look for Spring, mainly by switching around pillows and layering natural elements like The DIY moss balls I have displayed in the vintage dough bowl.
I also added pops of my favorite color, purple.
The mantel is decorated for Easter, again using natural elements like the moss basket, raffia carrots, and the DIY wreath I made using a grapevine wreath and some faux cherry blossom branches.
Nest are something you will find throughout my house year round. I think they are beautiful works of art, and I love that they symbolize life, growth, health, and good luck.
The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in the house. We completely remodeled it 2013. I love the contrast of the black cabinets with the distressed cream-colored island. I painted the kitchen cabinets using General Finishes milk paint.
I enjoy decorating this tiered wooden tray with seasonal decor.
The bottom tray is always filled with fresh fruit.
I found this vintage scale at a local antique store. It’s defiantly a conversation piece.
Lastly, the dining room is a decorated in fun spring colors. The linen table runner was purchased at Pottery Barn. I paired it with natural fiber placemats, neutral dishes, and some fun yellow peeps sitting in a nest. The cheerful centerpiece was made using some faux flowers I had around the house. It just screams SPRING IS HERE!!
I’m so glad to have shared my home with you today. My hope is that you found some new ideas to inspire you to create something of your own! If you’d like to see more of my home, please be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.
