To me, springtime is all about new beginnings and the addition of exciting new bursts of colour and life, so I really wanted to portray that in our home's decor this year. As I often like to do, lots of our decor this Spring is inspired by nature, and it's an eclectic mix of vintage and modern.
I'll share more about it later in this tour post, but you can win a ton of fantastic prizes like a $5000 shopping spree, a trip to Mexico (!! I've kept our little entry nook simple with some of my favourite little antique items and a pretty bundle of faux flowers. Moving into our living room, I've added some bright pops of colour to make it feel fresh and ready for the new season. Styling Tip: One single floral pillow adds enough of a burst of colour and pattern to make an entire room feel like Spring!
This bright floral pillow is designed by one of my favourite fellow Canadian bloggers - Lucy of Craftberry Bush - and you can find it here. Styling Tip: To make a dark leather couch feel lighter, surround it with light and bright colours like white and gray.
On our coffee table, I've filled a barnwood box with blue mason jars, candles and pink tulips.
Styling Tip: Mix faux greenery and florals with real ones for a lower budget look for Spring. The rest of the kitchen features little bursts of fresh fruit, veggies, and of course a sweet little bundle of tulips. I still definitely need to do a good, thorough Spring clean on the inside of my kitchen cupboards, but that's still on the back burner...
I made these flowers using this DIY method right here, and then I set them in a glass vase with acrylic water. Styling Tip: Fill a transparent glass vase with real or acrylic water when using faux florals to give them a more realistic look.
The books on the tray on the sitting room coffee table are a fun vintage find from an antique store trip this month.
A simple DIY pink throw and floral pillow add just the right amount of Spring pop to the room.
The Julia sofa from The Brick has the tufted, traditional look that I love and it has a very similar feel to the pieces I have in our sitting room! My friends at The Brick are giving away a TON of great prizes like a Big Brother Canada Ultimate Fan Experience, a gorgeous new TV, a $5000 shopping spree and more.
