Decorating a front porch sets the stage and the feeling for the rest of the house. Our little back Cottage’s porch was in desperate need of styling after we renovated the roof to repair some water damage. After a quick trip to town for some clearance flowers, we set to work creating a welcoming cottage…
Decorating your porch is so important! It’s the first thing you see when you come home or have guests over, it sets the tone for the whole house and we are going to teach you how to decorate it.
Spring has come early here in Tennessee so we have spent the last few weeks getting the yard in shape, we’ve been mulching, planting and sprouting seeds like crazy but it is all worth it! The yard is looking amazing and will burst into full bloom any day now. In the meantime, we are pulling our furniture back out into the yard to create some cozy seating areas. This is one of my favorite projects, it’s so fun to make each section of the garden inviting and ready to entertain in.
Spring has been around for a while and we are edging toward summer feels with each passing day, so we wanted to put together a new look in our living room. Something with a nod toward summer while still keeping all the spring touches in place. For this look, we went with a really simple fireplace look and lots of flowers around the room.
Transitioning decor through the seasons is one of my favorite tasks, this week we are tackling our mantel. We had a lot of these colors and textures already up here but we wanted to give it a bit of a facelift and a fresh spring feel.
Spring is in the air around here, the Bradford pear trees in the neighborhood are about to burst into full bloom. The tulips we planted last year are poking through the soil to show off their dazzling colors. With all the stunning blooms outside we wanted to create a gorgeous farmhouse spring mantel that brought those same textures and colors into our living room.
My favorite thing about spring? The flowers! I love incorporating live plants in our decor, it’s a unique challenge of layering colors textures, nature and faux to make something beautiful. We had a great time redecorating our porch for spring, and got to put all the plants we’ve been picking up on clearance at Kroger to good use!
You guys know how we feel about antiques, and so, of course, they showed up in our spring mantel decor! A lot of our neighbors to the north are still snowed in (sorry guys) and we still are expecting some chilly weather over the next few weeks but the official start of spring is just…
We redid our laundry room a few months back to give it a complete facelift from the paint to the light fixture and I have to say we really love the way it has come out. We went with a gorgeous gray for the walls and a gorgeous silver and crystal light. Pictures to come!
The daffodils and hyacinths have bloomed, the tulips we planted last year are beginning to poke their heads above the ground, and the peach tree at the end of the yard is in full bloom which means we have spring on our minds! So we put together this spring tablescape, we wanted it to feel like a cozy greenhouse with lots of layers and textures.
