Before we do anything else, I want to chat just a minute about what’s going on in the world around us.

First, I want to say that I hope you are all safe, and taking good care of yourselves. Since my website revolves exclusively around my home, I am going to continue to bring you refreshing and easy ideas for your own homes. If life gets in the way, and you can’t open my emails, or visit my blog, no worries. Just come back when you can.

In the coming weeks, I’m going to try to share some easy recipes, since most of us will be sticking close to home. I would love to share some organization ideas as well, so hopefully I can pull those together. I will do my best to offer you inspiration for easy living, and while you are here, a short break from the world today.

One more thing. In the spirit of full disclosure, I am actually writing this from my iPhone…which is a challenge to say the least. My laptop refuses to turn on. So to save myself the torture of phone typing, I am going to skip my usual narrative, and just show you the pictures of my spring living room. All the sources and related links are at the end of the post. Please let me know if you have any questions by sending me an email at ann@onsuttonplace.com.

  1. Hi Ann, wondering if the baskets are removable on your blanket ladder? I think I may have a great spot to place one in my formal living room. Thanks for sharing all of your beautiful decorating ideas!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Sally…yes, the baskets are removable!

  2. Anne Horning says:

    Any idea where you found the beautiful green check blanket/throw on your ladder? I love it and it would be perfect for my living room. Love your style!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Anne…I got it on Amazon, and I’m sorry I didn’t include the link. Here is my affiliate link: https://amzn.to/2QBwYYM Thank you!

  3. Ann, I love your inspiring tips, recipes and your positive enthusiasm. I have thought about ordering a blanket ladder for some time and finally did today. I have the perfect spot for it. Thank you for your wonderful blog. I’ll look forward to each new post, especially now that we are ‘sheltering ‘ at home for what may be a long time. Stay healthy!

  4. What a beautiful living space.

  5. Lovely pictures! Thanks Ann. A bit of normalcy is great. I’m in the UK in isolation with my family listening to news of school closures! Your blog is a lovely reminder of the beautiful things in life. These strange days certainly remind us that loved ones and basic comforts are what life is all about. Stay safe.

  6. Ann, whenever I want to see color done right I visit your blog. You have a gift for mixing colors that are always beautiful. Love the green pillows and pink flower pictures :)

  7. Love the pretty pink flowers and the green pillows and how they pop in here!

  8. In these interesting and trying times, thank you for inspiring me with your warm and beautiful decor

  9. Those pops of pink among your blue and white are just gorgeous! It made me smile! I bet you smile every time you look at that vignette!

  10. Thank you for continuing to post your charming ideas and pictures. It gives us some more normalcy in these unsettling times. Stay well.

  11. So pretty Ann! I especially love the pops of green from the pillows against those gorgeous pink flowers!

    Hope you are taking care – and happy spring to you!


  12. So lovely… You really have a gift. Links for your chairs and sofa??

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Joyce…the sofa and chairs are no longer available. I got them at a store that has since closed. I wish I could be more help!

  13. Ann,
    I have always l o v e d your style and design!
    Thank you, today, for your kind words. . .they touched my heart.
    I’ve been over booked and away from my blog. . .
    so this time ‘at home’ may give me a break to put together a post.
    Thank you for sharing and inspiring!

  14. Flowers and plants make a room. They are in every photo.

    Beautiful home tour! I just finished my asymmetrical plate wall and it was so much fun using my Mother’s collection of hand soft pastel painted plates. I moved away from home while in college and we didn’t live close to each other, but it’s amazing how our decorating styles and favorite colors were so similar. Guess it’s in the genes! Please take care of yourself! Happy St. Patty’s Day!! 🍀

  16. Ann, I just love your living room. Every time I see it, I just swoon!! I love the little touches of blues…green and that hot pink. My favorite is your plate wall. I’ve saved it to my Pinterest board so that someday I might get to re-create it. I have a plate wall but my dishes are all white…now to me it looks boring. :) You and your family stay safe too, and thanks for thinking of us. I’ve been quarantined by my family…since last Wednesday…only because they are concerned. I’m at that age where they think they can say that! :)

  17. Thank you for sharing Ann.

  18. Thank you for continuing to share decor ideas and inspiration and recipes. It is important to have some things that stay the same during this period and brief breaks/distractions.

  19. Hi Anne,

    Your living room looks gorgeous, I really love the green touches and the pops of pink rally add something extra!
    Kind regard

  20. Nancy Hamilton says:

    Ann, I just checked your suggestion to find the Eucalyptus garland, Amazon is out of stock and not sure they will have the item again. Just an update for your list. Thank you so much for your blog!! Stay well.

  21. You are truly an inspiration and a bright light! Thank you!

  22. Bless you Ann. I have found your blog posts not only inspiring but calming during this uncertain time in our country. Please remember we are not going to abandon you if you cannot post everyday. Thank you for all you do to brighten our lives.

  23. Cindy Farinholt says:

    Thanks Anne for all your inspiration! With everything going nowadays it is hard to get inspired, your ideas and photos give me a springtime lift! I turned off the TV and could hear the birds outside ! Since I am over the magical age of 60 I am staying home and sewing quilts! Decorating for spring and starting some in door spring cleaning! I hope everyone stays healthy and enjoys their time at home!

  24. Kim Gibson says:

    Your pictures are a calm oasis in a crazy crazy world. The colors are so happy, and white always pops them and makes everything clean looking. Speaking of clean, however do you keep your couch so spotless? If I had white, it would be a dingy grey brown in no time! Cheers and I hope your family is doing well. Stay safe.

  25. I always enjoy your blog post and I can’t wait to see what you have planned to show us. It is such a refreshing break to open your emails. Thanks for all you do.

  26. Linda Smith says:

    Ann, I love your blog and always look forward it! Could you tell me where you purchased the green plaid throw that is on your blanket ladder? Thanks,

  27. Your home is lovely and not only that, but it also looks so welcoming. Today is such a gray gloomy day that I’m beginning to wonder if I should get out my spring decor and liven the place up a little. I love the pillows on your couch especially the green trellis ones. Beautiful.

  28. Yvonne @ StoneGable says:

    I love your decorating style and images Ann! So crisp and pretty! And I love the way you brought gorgeous color to your room! Stay safe yourself. So sorry your computer is being finicky!

  29. LORRI RAUSCHER says:

    Thanks Ann for the lovely pops of colour. I see that you put in some green for St Patty’s Day . Lovely. Please continue with your calming words and pictures, so your readers can have a respite from the craziness that is happening. Be safe and take care.
