Winter has been such a crazy season this year in Indiana. It hasn’t been cold enough to kill off all the sickness and it only snowed two or three times. It has been a real bummer of a winter. A week of 60 degree weather then a week of 20 degree weather and back and forth and back and forth…well, you get the idea.
I tend to
hoard collect more junk decor over the holidays and winter months. I don’t know if it’s to brighten a dreary interior (I really love the sunshine) or to cozy it up, but I looked around and realized our home was getting a bit cluttered. It was time to shake off the winter blahs and create a light, bright, simple spring look! Hopefully the season will soon follow.
I put away all of the winter decor (I had to go buy another tote, shame on me!), washed the windows, and dusted the blinds. Then I put out my spring decor…the light version. Come on in for a little taste of Spring, our door is always open!
A Simple Spring Mantle and Dining Table
Fresh flowers are a wonderful way to bring a simple spring feel into your home. I picked these up at the store that shall remain nameless and split them into my two vintage white pitchers. I wanted more tulips, but they didn’t have any (sad emoji face). The rest of the mantle I kept as simple as possible with only the candle holder, south/north piece of an old weather vein, and my white bird that I got eons ago. Styling your mantle can be difficult, but in this post I show you the easy way to put yours together!
My large pickle jar and some faux flowers sit in the middle of the dining room table. Vintage plates are all ready to hold some pie or maybe banana pudding (YUM) when we finish dinner. I didn’t use a runner because I love the simple raw texture of the table top.
Simple Spring Touches in the Family Room
I decluttered the built-ins and added faux flowers to my vases. My favorite bird sits watch, keeping an eye on the grand littles that are currently living with us. Styling built-ins can be challenging too, head on over and check out my tips for decorating built-ins like a boss.
My repurposed apothecary jars are happy to be back out with faux lavender (until my real lavender blooms) filling them.
And lastly the vintage carpenter’s box (that I picked up at a garage sale on the serious cheap) is once again filled with vintage milk bottles and faux spring flowers.
Oh I nearly forgot! The door to our laundry room is an exterior door, it helps to muffle the sound of the machines running. Some of the grand littles magnetic alphabet have made it onto this door, so I decided to remind us of what is coming, lol!!
I hope you enjoyed my touches of spring and I hope I have inspired you to shake of your winter blahs and add a touch of spring to your spaces!
