I am so excited to share my newly finished spring time living room.
I love this time of year so much. No matter how much snow is on the ground outside, spring always feels like it has officially arrived once I have my living room made over for the season.
Before we get to pictures, I must apologize for the less than wonderful photos. My camera is mad at me and acting all crazy. It may be time to say goodbye and finally get a big-girl camera like many of you have. Which scares the you-know-what out of me!
That being said, lets get to the fun stuff.
Take a look . . . .
Hello Spring! I'm Ready!
I am now in love with my living room all over again.
I've reused a number if items that I had here at home like the pretty floral curtains. Then I added new things like the distressed white frames with burlap photo mats.
And this newly purchased chicken wire basket.
Have you ever seen such a pretty basket?
I wish I had thought to buy more of them.
The chippy coffee table received a simple lace edged runner and a bowl full of fake hydrangea's I've had for years. The flowers are still a favorite every time I bring them out of storage.
In the far corner, I place a distressed crate filled with my collection of vintage blue books along with a few candles. The books give a great pop of color as does the flower print on the wall.
The two white slip covered chairs along the large wall received pretty pillows in blue and green paisley.
Between the chairs on the little table I place a sweet display that I love for it's simplicity.
A stack of books, a nest and a bird - can't get more simple than that but somehow it looks amazing.
Isn't the sweet little bird adorable? I've had it for years and look forward to taking him out each spring.
My favorite part of the room is on the wall above the chairs.
I love this set of shelves, they are always so much fun to arrange.
I enjoyed the look of the white frames with burlap I use in the room already so I decided to carry on the theme by switch out all my black museum like frames for white ones. I had to make several trips to the thrift store in search of wood frames to paint.
The end result is very pretty I think. The white frames seem to make the prints and photos stand out more.
I tried to add pops of color to the shelf also.
My color of choice this time of year is a combo of pale blue and green.
I painted two clay pots with a pretty, pale blue. Together with the greenery I think they are a cheerful duo for spring. The wire basket adds an interested touch don't you think? They are from the dollar section at Target. I picked up a total of three of them and now I'm wishing I would have picked up more.
Moving on, other pops of color where added like this vintage children's reading book tied open with twine.
Botanical prints in shades of blue, plus little items like this bird . . .
And a pale blue finial I've had for years.
This room makes me smile for so many reason.
Mostly because it's just a bright, cheerful and cozy place to be.
Hope you enjoyed the tour,
Talk to you soon,
