I am joining some sweet friends to bring you a “”Simple Spring Styling Tour!!” You can jump from one post to the next and find some inspiration to execute in your home. Lets get started, my door is open, Welcome in.
What is Spring Fever, anyway, I looked it up. It can be a mood, and it can be, either physical or behavioral changes. It talks about an increase in energy, and I can attest to that, just the thought of one nice day, gets me going. It talks about this concept, actually having a real biological basis. A lift in our mood comes from the simple additional hours of daylight. So, yes, it is a real thing, and though none of us want a case of the Flu, I say bring on the Spring Fever, infect me please. Every year, I know I feel and say the same thing, I can’t wait for Spring, the sunshine, the flowers. But truly this year I mean it, even more. Doesn’t it feel worse than ever? It is still really cold, here in PA, we get 9″ of snow one day, the next day it is 71 degrees. Either way, I have already started to get my home Spring ready, and I am loving every minute of it. Every Season I try to add in a few new things. I am always working to get rid of stuff, but also bring in things that will stand the test of time. I started right here in my main Living Room.
I found the most beautiful florals from Lorraine’s Cottage, a Wreath for the Mantle and Floral Arrangement on the Coffee Table, give the room, the life it needs. I love these pieces, they have a romantic, woodsy, organic, look and feel, which I love.
When are pillows not a good idea? Do I need more pillows, no. But why not, they make me happy. The two large fur pillows are from Homegoods, and so worth the $29 price tag, because they came with a feather insert, and a zipper cover. Additionally these two from Pottery Barn, to freshen this space, and in the perfect shade of Pink.
I have been searching for the perfect pair of Ottomans for this space for some time. I do love the Leather Moroccan Style everyone seems to have, and hope to pick one up soon, but I wanted something really special, something that had my name all over it, if you know what I mean. I simply adore this sweet poufs, they remind me of cupcakes. Additionally I added this 5×8 carpet from Target, to soften the space.
I love adding in small touches, as the seasons come and go, and then see the room slowly change. I love purchasing pillow covers, and I am careful to purchase ones that fit the feather pillow inserts I have collected over the years. This way I am only storing covers and not so many big bulky pillows. And changing out art is easy. I always keep candles on hand, all kinds and sizes.
I moved a Floral Arrangement onto my freshly painted Blue Table, and some simple Modern Art pieces, to the staircase area.
I am still madly in love with this painted staircase, it really adds so much to the space.
Lots of Blush touches, because that is where my heart is right now, a few florals, because I can’t get enough flowers, and several textures with throws, pillows and the new ottomans.
Well that is it, my Spring Living Room. Not to much will change for Summer, I will simple add in a few shells and starfish. I hope you enjoyed it. Get ready for your next stop on the tour.
