Hey y’all and come on in to our Almost Farmhouse – I am so glad you are here! Let’s visit a while as I show you how I’ve styled my home for Spring this season.
If you are coming here from Ashley’s beautiful home from Little Glass Jar, welcome, friend! Don’t you just love her gorgeous home? I believe my ‘Almost Farmhouse’ wants to be like hers when it grows up! Ashley is such a sweet blogger with amazing decor inspiration. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the Spring Home Love blog hop with 15 other wonderfully talented bloggers.
Today, I’m sharing how to add simple touches of Spring Decor to your home, but first I have a confession. Do you decorate your home for each holiday? I have to admit that I’m not a holiday decorator. Of course, I love to decorate for Christmas, but I don’t hit each and every day holiday that passes by.
I would call myself more of a seasonal decorator.
I like to change up my home for each season. Brightening up my home for the warmer months and making it warm and cozy for the cooler seasons. So that means switching out my slipcovers from the gray back to bright white – which almost didn’t happen!
Of course, some of y’all know that I’m a momma to two boys.
Two boys I should have named Rowdy and Raucous. Two boys that are stinky, messy and sometimes muddy. And now, we also have a puppy. At the end of last summer, I vowed to do away with the white slipcovers because they constantly needed to be washed. However, this year a genius idea inspired me!
That white sheet with the stripes is a duvet cover I found on clearance for $8! I cut it in half and covered up my cushions to extend the time between washings! When it gets dirty, I can just pull that sheet off and wash the cover and it’s not such a chore to disassemble the entire couch.
I’m kinda proud of myself for that smart idea! I don’t have them often, so when I do, I just have to share!
And that middle striped pillow up there…. that’s a tea towel that I tied around an old pillow. Again, quick, easy changes that brighten up the space. And I just love how the gray buttons match my gray pillows.
One big change we made to this room were the addition of the woven blinds. We got these gorgeous wood shades from the wonderful people at The Shade Store.
Our windows were so plain before and the simple addition of woven shades has warmed up the room dramatically. It’s like jewelry for your windows! We went for the Standard Woven Wood Shades in the Fair Harbor-2 color.
Last week we updated our fireplace mantel by adding beadboard above to match our kitchen backsplash, and I styled it with a pop of black and hints of driftwood and tarnished silver.
Adding touches of greenery just brings Spring indoors! And switching out the slipcovers seemed to make my Entertainment Center just stand out.
One of my favorite touches of Spring I love is my faux tulip crate. We got this screen from an estate sale years ago. They used it as a gate of some kind. Hanging it on the wall and adding a bright colored wreath looks so Spring-y and farmhouse-y!
Now, Spring always means color to me – pastels pinks and baby blues, which I scattered hints of throughout my kitchen.
Aqua Ball glass jars adorn my shelf over my sink along with a fun sign from the Paper Riot company that matches perfectly.
Also, I couldn’t forget my little rooster – he gets a fun, baby blue bow!
Why, hello there beautiful! I continue the pops of aqua at my coffee station.
The last area I added touches of Spring decor to is my dining room, which I left super simple.
I added a moss runner to my table and filled a DIY pallet box with faded green and white hydrangeas.
Continuing the touches of tarnished silver in my Dining Room, I displayed my favorite pieces on an old ladder.
I shared this fun DIY framed nest art I made with adhesive fabric from the Paper Riot company. You have to check out my fun tutorial from Monday – their product is so easy to work with, I want it all over my house!
Thanks for stopping by. Indeed, I’m honored! Next on the blog hop is Deb from Seeking Lavender Lane. Without a doubt, you all will swoon over her gorgeous French inspired Spring Farmhouse.
