Hi everyone! After a week of frigid cold temps, cloudy skies, and even a crazy weekend snow shower, the sun came out and spring arrived! Today I’m sharing my Spring Family Room and Kitchen Tour and participating in a Spring Home Tour with 30 bloggers, hosted by Marty at A Stroll Thru Life. If you are arriving from Remodelando la Casa (one of my favorite bloggers) then welcome!
When it comes to spring decor, I enjoy a fresh, clean and uncluttered look. The first thing I love to do is bring in lots of botanicals. February and March is when retailers start receiving shipments of lush indoor plants like majestic palms, fiddle leaf figs along with bright and cheerful potted bulbs.
Our backyard has two very large forsythia bushes, which are in total full bloom right now! Unfortunately we planted them on the side of our house and they can’t be seen from any window, but thankfully I can bring in long clippings and force the blooms each year. The forsythia branches look bright and pretty paired with yellow daffodils on our new wood beam mantel and marble herringbone fireplace.
You can’t beat free flowers from the yard in sea glass vases!
Our grocery store had these amazing yellow hydrangeas that I couldn’t resist.
Are you sensing a color theme yet? We’re celebrating spring with shades of blue and pops of yellow.
The yellow and blue pillows were pulled from our playroom and my daughter’s room. I promised myself that I would not buy any more pillows this spring since honestly, my linen closet can’t hold anymore. Instead I used these easy to make envelope pillow covers.
I filled a cloche with painted Easter eggs for a quick and easy 5-minute display.
Spring means spring cleaning. The kitchen received a top to bottom cabinet wipe down. A sparkling clean kitchen is a rare occassion in our home. This lovely view lasted all of one afternoon before the family arrived home.
My birthday present was the new gold bamboo chandelier from Ballard Designs. I love how it elevated the space but once it was up, the farmhouse styled kitchen chairs looked out of place. So I shopped our house and switched them out with the dining room chairs and pulled in the linen bench. The X-back chairs compliment the chandelier and look so much nicer. I’m not sure if I’ll keep them there but it’s fun having them there for now.
The whole space came together nicely for spring!
LOVE IT? PIN IT!
