Before we get started, I wanted to mention I have an awesome update on where we’re at with our house being on the market but let’s be real.. you didn’t come today for that so I will be sharing all that in the next one. For today, let’s talk spring and bringing it into the living room!
This year, for spring, I kept things very neutral and relaxed in here. Well, I guess that’s 2 things I do all year round, but Spring was no exception this year. Last spring I had pops of seagrass green in here, but this year I chose to keep it more neutral. With our house on the market, we did keep it a little more sparse in here than usual and I was liking it so even when the showings ended, I kinda kept things as they were!
When I think of spring, bringing the indoors in is a must. I’m talking greenery, floral arrangements and the fresh air this season brings, rain or sunshine! Lately, I’ve also been really inspired by the boho eclectic feel cause the relaxed and fun touches really gets me excited. The textures in some of the pillows, a new hand-woven wall tapestry made by my friends at Gem.and.Elli, some multi colored woven baskets are just some of the ways you can bring a little boho to your space.
Another important thing is for the space to smell fresh. These flowers from Costco are my go to because it’s so fresh and effortlessly pretty. Also candles with a slight sweet and floral aroma is my fave. This candle was purchased in the spring of 2014 called Springtime in Provence and oh my goodness, it smells so so good, it’s ridiculous. It smells like spring in a jar! (Edit: though I do love my candles, they can only burn for a few minutes lately before it starts making me nauseous, no matter how good it smells. I have been into my Young Living Essential Oils and it’s been actually helping me relax without any nauseous moments, but more on that later).
I decided to keep some pillows I had from winter that are neutral because I just love the texture it adds to the space. It really fits in all seasons if you ask me. I’m also holding on tight to our “5” pillow from Sovintage Chic. It’s such a fun and simple graphic touch but it’s also going to change to 6 soon, so I’m using the heck out of it while I can 😉
Something as simple as a chalkboard welcoming spring and windows wide open to let in the fresh breeze can really help a space feel Springy.. except you can’t tell here because truth be told, there is a big ol’ bbq grill parked right in front of the window and there was no way I was going to go outside to move it. Shameless confessions cause being pregnant and running to the bathroom at least 5 times in the time I took these pics to relieve the morning sickness was already more than I could handle for one day. Sorry for the TMI, but TMI is how I roll. I’m pretty sure all my real life friend’s eyes are rolling and saying “uhh huh”…
Anyway, hope you all enjoyed the One Room Spring tour: living room. Please check out Erin, Oscar, Ashley and Megan who also shared their living rooms today if you haven’t already. Listed below is everyone in the home tour. It’s an awesome line up so don’t miss out!!
Just for kicks, while I was uploading and writing this post, my son says “that’s weird… you’re wearing Christmas socks in April and you’re writing a post on bringing Spring inside.. Not sure you’re the right person for the job mom” And we both start cracking up! Dying because I noticed it before he sat down and was already giggling to myself! LOL! We so think the same! Ok, maybe you had to be there but it had me giggling the rest of the post! He makes me laugh on a daily basis! Love my pre-teen!
