Spring has Sprung!

     Spring is officially here, and even though its not as warm out as it was last week, it is still beautiful. You forget how pretty it can be when its brown as long as it has been this year. So I'm on to springing things up around here. I don't have a specific system for doing this and it changes every year but this year, this is what I'm up to.

     Bring in a fun color. My main living are is very open. In the living room I have varying shades of sage-y blue. I turned this color up a notch in my kitchen where I brought in more aqua tones. For spring I changed out my bird plate above the stove {which is still very spring-ish} with a really cute plate {believe it or not its plastic} that I found at Target. It looks great with the chevron painted fence above the cupboards and adds a bit of freshness.

     For my mantle I added a few spring branches, and some Easter eggs. I tried to cover the utilitarian boxes with some burlap but it didn't come out very well so I left it off. It is so hard to decorate around these things and have it look nice. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

     I added a spring wreath to the front door. The tutorial is here.

    And added a few other touches around the house.

     So there you have it! Not earth shattering changes but just a few things here and there to help usher in the season. Changing things here and there with the seasons may seem like a waste of time to some but for me it helps me to appreciate the seasons throughout the year, shakes things up a bit and helps us to feel more content with what we have.

Happy Spring!
