For me spring decorating is swapping out a few accessories, maybe artwork or throw pillows, but decorating with flowers says spring better than anything else. Do you look for excuses to buy flowers too? What a difference a small bouquet can make in a room.
When I talk about swapping out something, I’m referring to shopping in my own home. It’s a great way to save money on seasonal transitions such as the large floral painting in the entry. Originally it was in the master bedroom, but I’m loving how it looks in here.
I’m amazed how different artwork looks when displayed in different spaces. With lighting and background changes artwork can take on a whole new personality. The navy wall does wonders for the painting by bring out all the dark hues.
I’m thinking about keeping the painting in the entry for a while, although I didn’t even hang it. I just set it on the entry table leaning against the wall to see how it would look, and that’s where it stayed.
This is Angus. Usually he’s running through whatever room I’m trying to photograph.
When I think about flower arranging, it can be a hit or miss with me. I’ve decided to keep arrangements simple and that seems to work best.
Flowers not only add interest, but also bring a happy spring vibe into a space. Add a pop of color and see what happens. That’s one of the suggestions I made in the post, four easy ways to keep neutral decor interesting.
I love mixing in vintage pieces that have a history. The sliver heart-shaped dish, the pressed glass candy jar holding flowers and the Limoges eggs, once belonged to loved ones that were very dear to me.
You can do this too. Remember vintage pieces add character and don’t have to cost very much.
Are you ready for spring? What’s your favorite way to decorate? I would love to hear from you!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
