May has arrived and it finally feels like spring in Illinois! Today I’m joining a few friends for our monthly “Cozy Living” series that’s published the first Saturday of each month. I thought I’d share how to create a cozy spring family room using my own space as an example.
My inspiration was this beautiful white Portuguese bowl from HomeGoods. I knew I wanted just one item for the coffee table and spied this beauty while wandering the store aisles.
Aztec pillows in pink and blue (also from HomeGoods) dot my white sectional sofa, so I decided upon pink and white flowers for the bowl to continue the soft color scheme.
Lightweight woven throws in shades of pink and blue to match the pillows add texture and cozy appeal. It’s still cool at night so it’s great to snuggle under the soft throws while reading or watching TV.
Do you ever have lucky and unlucky shopping trips? I hate when I can’t find what I’m looking for, but the shopping angels must’ve been with me because I found the pink and white faux flowers when I found the white bowl.
A blue waffle blanket drapes over one end of the sectional creating more cozy goodness. I’ve decided to be brave this summer and leave the beige covers off my sectional. We’ll see if I can keep it clean and white. Wish me luck!
The end table enjoys a small button fern on the lower shelf. It’s one of my favorite houseplants – I love its shape!
Pink and white faux roses fill a light blue vase. I never thought I’d be such a fan of faux flowers but they’re pretty realistic-looking these days.
Pillows, throws, and beautiful flowers all come together to create a cozy spring family room!
