Even though it’s still cold and yucky outside, I thought it might help to bring a touch of what’s to come to the inside. I’d like to share some of my decorating ideas for spring in preparation for blue skies, warm weather, chirping birds. I am so ready!
I already showed you the dining room and antique chest. Next is the sofa which sits smack dab in the middle of my living room. I brought in some lighter, neutral pillow covers. The pieced grain sack covers bring in a bit of blue, which just says spring to me.
One of my favorite ways to welcome a new season is adding accessories that tell a story. A birds nest with eggs along with a trio of little blue birds. An Easter basket with colored eggs…and fresh flowers. I had to settle for grocery store flowers but I didn’t even mind. They brought my tired room to life.
The vintage oval tray was my mother-in-law’s. It sat in her dining room on the bottom of a tea cart. I’ve lost track of what happened to the tea cart but I’m glad I have the tray. I’ve thought, many times, about painting it. Somehow I just can’t do it. It adds a subtle layer even though it blends in with the coffee table. Chances are it won’t be meeting a paint brush…but I have definitely learned to never say never!
As usual, Kelly was lurking about while I was taking pictures. I was having issues (shocker) with lighting and my tripod. I wasn’t paying attention and realized when I was editing that she found her way into a picture.
If you aren’t already on over-load, check out my spring and Easter decorating ideas from last year. I’ve updated the post and added sources. Wishing you a happy Friday and a lovely weekend. See you next week!
