It time for our spring refresh home tour. Today I’ll be sharing simple ways of decorating for spring in our entryway, living room and adjoining dining room.
I’m joining 28 fabulous bloggers, opening our doors to welcome you into our homes. A huge thank you goes to Marty of A Stroll Through Life for including me in her annual Spring Home Tours. It’s a fascinating way to get a glimpse into how everyone celebrates spring in different parts of the country. Plus I think you’re going to love this eclectic mix of decorating styles.
If you are popping in from The Tattered Pew, welcome to Thistle Key Lane! I’m so happy you’re here. Kelly is one of my favorite bloggers that never ceases to inspire me with her clever projects and fresh style of decorating.
Keep reading to the end of this post where you’ll find links for the entire week of beautiful home tours.
Spring Refresh Home Tour
Spring seems to be our shortest season, so I’m holding on to every cool crisp day that comes along. We’ve already had temps reach the 80s, and survived some horrific thunderstorms last week. Today though, promises to be delightfully mild and sunny. Sounds like the perfect day to be joining the spring home tours.
Spring Refresh In The Entryway
A few months ago I changed out the frames above our entry table to display some of my artwork. Since the navy and white botanicals seem to go with almost everything, I don’t feel a need to make any changes there just yet. For previous views with large frames, click on my post, Summer Entry Table With New Artwork.
Spring additions on the entry table start with a branch of sweet blossoms in the vintage demijohn. I love the dramatic height of the branch, and how it draws the eye up.
Completing this little vignette is a moss bunny topiary sitting on a stack of books, and a wood bead garland. It’s an interesting mix of textures that gives off happy vibes.
The moss bunny is one of my favorite spring projects from last year. For easy instructions click on, How To Make A Bunny Topiary.
One more spring addition is the glass egg tray holding a candle and a wick trimmer. I found the tray several years ago in a candle shop, and just love the combination of blue and green eggs. I’m sure I’ll be changing the entry table up as we go further into March and April, but for now I’m keeping it simple.
Spring Refresh In The Living Room
Our spring refresh in the living room starts with switching some furniture around. I’m also swapping out pillow covers to bring in softer colors. The objective is to give the room a light and airy feel.
On the ottoman a large wooden tray holds an arrangement of pink and white alstroemeria. Would you believe I bought these over two weeks ago and they still look fresh?
Next to the flowers I have a little nod to spring with my foraged bird nest from last year. I’m also including sea shells from a Florida vacation in my mom’s silver bowl.
On the side table a cloche holds another bird nest resting in a bowl. This is what I call no cost decorating. For details, click on my post, DIY Foraged Bird Nest.
Dining Room Table Spring Refresh
In the dining I’m adding an oversized wicker tray on the table for displaying a ficus tree, books and flowers. The dining room is usually bright and sunny, which is perfect for keeping my little friend happy.
After Easter I’ll be switching the table back to the library look with stacks of my favorite recipe and decorating books. For ideas check out my post Styling A Dining Table With Books.
Be sure to follow Thistle Key Lane on Pinterest, where the boards are up to date with my favorite seasonal inspiration!
