Spring has Sprung Home Tour


Yesterday I shared with you that I had a special post planned for Friday, and here it is! If you are coming here from another blog, then welcome! For the rest of you, let me fill you in on what you have in store. I am thrilled to have been asked to participate in a Spring Blogger Home Tour with eight of the most talented bloggers out there. After you've seen my tour, you can find links to all the other participants at the bottom of the post. I hope you will hop over to their blogs as well and take a look! They are all wonderfully talented, and their posts are full of great design ideas for Spring..... Enjoy!!






Since Spring isn't quite like Christmas, with access to so many decor items, not to mention a tree, I tend to keep it pretty simple. I adore white flowers, and I try to have them as a focal point. I especially love the crisp green of the leaves mixed with the bright white flowers.










I've also started bringing out some blue and white items for Spring. Their colors are so fresh and crisp, and really help to lighten up the space.

My kitchen hood mantel is one of my favorite places to style. I love to change it up with the seasons. Here I used an antique blue and white transferware platter with white ironstone pitchers. 



White tulips, a little nest under a cloche, and a blue and white platter from Sur la Table.


A runner from Home Goods adds a little more blue and white to the room. The dough bowl is a "new" antique and I love styling it! 


Another item that I'm in love with for Spring is lavender. Simple, bought from the hardware store or Trader Joe's, lavender. Though I usually only like white flowers, in Spring I do love the soft purple flowers and the smell! Heavenly!







Onto the dining room, where I put my new kalanchoe plant (loving this find!) and some cherry blossoms. I had looked for these before, but could never find live ones. They are so springy and cheerful!












I did get rid of the bunnies once Easter was over, but I decided to leave out all my little nests. I love the earthiness of them, and the way that they represent "re-birth." I put the nests everywhere; nestled in little bowls, on tables... wherever. And the eggs I still have out as well and use them in various bowls around the house.


Faux eggs are from Pottery Barn and the nests are handmade. Vintage silver pedestal dishes.



Eggs from PB again, nests are Home Goods, and the cloche, silver plate, and silver cup are all vintage.



And of course, tulips! I usually have them in almost every room, as long as I can find them. 



Tulips in an antique ironstone tureen.





Thanks so much for stopping by! I really hope you will pop over to the next blog on the tour, and then on from there. I think you will get a lot of inspiration - they are an amazing bunch!

  3. I enjoyed your home tour, your home is beautiful and course so are your Spring touches. I love all of the fresh flowers... what I like about the lavender is that even it if dies it still looks nice (hehe, great for someone who manages to kill all indoor plants)
