Welcome to part one of my spring decor home tour! I keep reminding myself that spring will be here soon. Truth be told, I haven’t done a ton of seasonal decorating but there’s a few touches here and there that might inspire you. And for even more spring inspiration, visit my friends at the links at the end of this post!
In the sitting room I added a bunch of pink hyacinths to a vintage Atlas jar, which I like more than my Ball jars. The hyacinths were just $5 a bunch at Trader Joe’s. They smell so fresh and spring-y! The white ceramic flower is a candle with a Gardenia fragrance. I like floral-scented candles this time of year.
I’ve got a couple new things on the chest in the sitting room. See that scruffy looking thing in the large ceramic pot at the far end? It’s a tumbleweed!
Yes, I paid money for a dried up tumbleweed because I knew it would look awesome in my large pot. I thought it would be soft – but it’s not! It’s sharp! And every time one of the kitties knocked it on the floor it would leave its sharp little points all over. I think they’re done playing with it now.
At the other end of the chest is my beautiful hoya plant that I almost killed. I kind of forgot about it because it was on the bottom shelf of an end table. Happily, it’s back to its healthy self. It’s paired with a little fern in a birch bark pot.
The other spring decor I changed in my sitting room is the mantel. Can I let you in on a secret? I don’t feel like I know how to decorate the mantel. I rearrange stuff or add a new piece or two, but I’m never truly satisfied. My birch bark vase gets a few faux flowers and sits between a grouping of glazed pottery pieces.
My white ironstone was not part of my recent decorating purge of no longer needed items. I still have several pieces on hand.
Maybe I’ll try a minimalist look next for the mantel and just put one thing on it.
Tomorrow I’ll show you what I’ve done in the family room, dining room, and kitchen.
I’d like to give a special thank you to Lory at Designthusiasm for organizing today’s spring decor tour! Visit my friends below …
