SPRING REFRESH DECOR TIPS
It's that time of year when we want to refresh our home decor. We want to get rid of the heavy feel from Winter and embark on an adventure into greenery, flowers and a light airy feel. At least that's how I'm feeling. I'm ready to shed the winter trappings and lighten things up!
One thing that I love to bring out in the Spring is my collection of bunnies. They give an instant feeling of spring to any decor style. I also moved all my ironstone collection to the hutch. I love all the white against the natural wood. The preserved lavender wreath is a purchase from last summer but still looks and smells great. It's from Floral Treasure.
I also painted a new Spring Cow. She's called Faith!. She's actually a twin to my Christmas painting, Sophie. For Faith, I included Eccl. 3:1 TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON. With the tree just starting to bud out, it felt so appropriate. Prints are available of Faith!
This year my inspiration for my table setting was a set of Bunny Plates that I found for a great deal at Marshall's. The minute I saw these plates, I knew exactly what I wanted my Spring Table to look like. They inspired my whole Spring Refresh! The idea of simple black, white and green just felt so fresh and clean to me.
So I started pulling out all my bunnies and other spring decor. I added a couple more moss covered bunnies and the wooden charger's from my Christmas screened porch table, to give the tablescape a woodland look. I was looking for white and green to complete this look. Most everything, other than the plates, I have used in various places around the house. Adding the glass Cloche's and wooden base, allowed the bunnies and toparies to shine on the table.
I also added some bunnies to the island to continue the green and white into the kitchen. The metal cake tray was a Vintage Cottage find.
I love how fresh and clean the kitchen feels for Spring!
The Living Area Refresh
I also carried that theme into the living area. Here I've used concrete bunnies, my handpainted "BUNNY TAILS' pillow cover and shades of blue, grey to keep this area neutral!. The ruffle ticking pillow covers and the bunny pillow covers are also available in my online shop.
Books, bunnies, and greenery fill the vintage tool box
Shades of creme, white, grey and blue complete the sofa area. The buffalo check pillow covers are from Amazon.
I added touches of lavender throughout the whole living area. These are faux lavender baskets that I purchased last year from The Painted Fox Home. The natural preserved wreath is from Floral Treasure.
Even the office area got a refresh with a Floral Treasure Wreath and some faux flowers from Hobby Lobby.
I wish my desk looked like this all the time. LOL
Mixing vintage finds in unusual ways creates a more interesting vignette. Here I've used a $1.00 thrift store glass cloche that was originally a part of a cheese tray and a Hobby Lobby cake plate updated with some Chalk Paint. I add it to a vintage book and a thrift store frame. I filled it with a birds nest and a couple of sweet bunnies for a unique vignette.
Use what you have in new and interesting ways to refresh your home for Spring. If you find a great deal on a Spring item, let that be the influence to style your home around. Start pulling out items that fit the theme you are designing around. I pull items from every room. That helps to keep all your rooms fresh. It's every revolving.
