Are you guys ready for some SPRING DECOR INSPIRATION OVERLOAD? Well, overload might be exaggerating a little haha… but how about “Just the Perfect Amount of Spring Decor Inspiration”? 🙂
I started working on this about a month and a half ago if you can even believe it. It doesn’t look like it, but I like the changes I make to be intentional and inexpensive, so I go slowly, adding things that I like, refreshing spaces as I go.
Since I love to keep things clean and bright in the kitchen, I incorporated aqua with bits of yellow and orangey-coral. I started with using those side window shelves as storage… I utilized my collection of vintage blue Ball jars and filled them with some baking essentials: nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and some often used things like Nesquik and popcorn kernels. I’ve decided that even thought I have a little pantry that can hold these things, it looks so much prettier in jars where everyone can see!
I also think tulips makes everything look like spring, don’t you agree? I made those two cutting boards because A) I didn’t have the budget to buy new or authentic vintage, and B) this corner needed some contrast! I just used some scrap/salvaged wood I had in my garage, drew out the shape I wanted and use my Ryobi Jig Saw to cut them out! It really was that simple! Of course I cleaned them up a bit and sealed with hemp oil.
I also decided to put my canisters of flour, sugar and oats on the counter… it makes it look more farmhouse, which I love and is super convenient! We found an inexpensive pendant glass fixture for above the sink at Lowe’s and I replaced it during naptime a couple weeks ago.
I think my favorite addition to my entire kitchen is this little aqua egg carton I found at HomeGoods. It’s the little things, ya know?
Here is a fun thing I discovered… because Tulips have rubbery stems and leaves, when you put a bunch together, even in a shallow vessel (like this thrift store urn), they will stay upright, because they sorta stick to one another!
Only downside? Tulips grow so fast, they only last like a week.
I decided to go simple with my table decor. Just some flowers!
This table I made over a couple years ago and was my first HUGE dining table project. I vowed never do do a dining set again. Since then I have done about a dozen! haha! But I still love this table as much as I did when I first refinished it.
My living room is where I made the most changes, but even then, my spring decor will be easy to blend into summer, because I just added some flowers and pops of color to brighten the room!
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the addition of this side table.
I built it. 🙂 (Plans will be up on Monday for this one!)
My color palette for this room was: coral, blush and aqua.
Obviously I have my neutrals which don’t/won’t change, which are white and gray and gold.
I completely re-did my gallery wall. I LOVE it. It includes some items I did for the #swapitlikeitshot Flea Market Swap Challenge.
Call me crazy, but this mini tour was 100% the motivation to build the end tables that I added to this room. It had been bugging me for awhile that there was ZERO tables in this room, besides the coffee table. So I set out to remedy this fact a couple months ago… refinished the restoration hardware inspired end table, then building this little end table for the other side.
This little thrift store vignette makes me smile. Everything but the lamp, people! Thrift stores are my best friends.
K, here is a funny story. I completely re-styled my bookcases. And after I finished, I asked Bruno, “So what do you think?” His response: “They look great, but to be honest, they look exactly the same.” Hahahaha! I laughed so hard! I love ’em… that’s all that matters!
I did splurge a little and got some new throw pillows. I’m starting to have an addiction, and I’m not ashamed!
I added some faux blossoming branches to my piano, because they were only $3 a piece on sale at Michaels!
The herb/botanical artwork is from the Spring Printable I did a couple weeks ago.
Ya’ll, it is for real amazing what some flowers (faux or real) can do to make your home feel like Spring!
That, and a some pops of color? Boom shaka aka!
Looking at this collage below just makes me so happy! It’s just seasonal decor done right without anything too bright or obnoxious!
