SPRING HOME TOUR

Welcome to my Spring Home Tour

Spring is in the air. The days are longer and I am finding myself motivated to clean and freshen up our home. It’s been a while since I have photographed the main floor living space of my home, and I need to update my Air BNB listing. So I am sharing some of the changes I’ve made around the house in the last few months.

I some of you who follow me on instagram might know. I finally got the dinning room set of my dreams last November. The Taos Harvest Table and Benches from homefurniture.com has really changed the look of my dinning room.

I was also gifted a new rug for this room from Loloi Rugs. It is very soft and plush and I love the look of it with the modern table.

When I was getting my house ready for The Homes for the Holidays show (this was when 1500 people came through my house to see my Christmas decor to raise money for the YWCA) I moved some of my furniture down to the basement. I decided to move the small leather sofa that was in the dinning room and replace it will this simple console I found for $50. It makes the room feel less cramped and gives me extra space for my plants!

I took a few of the flowers from my Christmas mantle display and the beaded garland from my tree and made a little arrangement for my coffee table with them. Because the theme for my Christmas decor was wood, fire and roses (I decorated with gold and blush pink) so I’m able to make some of my decor work in other ways throughout the year.

There are a few other bloggers who are also sharing their home’s this spring. If you are looking for more inspiration check out:

KID FRIENDLY BATHROOM

Use Bold Colors, but Not Too Many
For a stylish and cheery bathroom, stick mainly to one or two bright shades. Pops of color in striped towels or flowers will keep the space energetic. Colored vanities could add some flair, too. Just don’t go overboard: Too many colors in a small space can make it feel messy or overwhelming, while an uber-minimal environment isn’t fun for kids.
