Fresh & Simple Spring Tour

Fresh & Simple Spring Tour

Welcome to my fresh and simple spring home tour!

I'm participating in the annual Spring Home Tour. Marty from A Stroll Thru Life, is our hostess with the mostest! She gathers the info from about 30 bloggers and puts it all together into this tour for the week! You can find the full list of all that are participating at the end of this post. These beautiful spring homes will definitely inspire you!

If you're coming over from Kathy's site, Up To Date Interiors, welcome! I'm so happy to have you here! Kathy's home is incredible and beautiful. She has an eye for color and detail! 

Let's get into this spring tour! If you've been around here for any length of time, you're going to know that we always have some sort of demo going on. It's a bit of a construction zone...😜

Dining room to living room

Sometimes you have to look for it... like the flooring sitting next to the front window. Then there are other times you don't have to look too hard. The plastic hanging from the ceiling to the floor kind of gives it away. ( We demoed a coat closet that was there. We needed the studs to frame our master closet.)

Dining room to front door

I'm loving this fresh and simple approach to decorating. It's amazing how just a vase of fresh flowers brightens up the room as well as your mood! 

Dining Table Decor

The natural hyacinth plate chargers add such a easy simple detail. I picked up the faux wood chargers at the Dollar Tree.

Front Door flower arrangement

I've been using this basket on the front door for floral arrangements. I just love the ease of it. This is how I made the front door arrangement.

Dining room

I thought I'd share some real life, behind the scenes. It's not all cleaned up, that's for sure! I usually move all the "stuff" so that  it's out of the camera's view. 😂

Behind the scenes mess

The bookcases and the hand-truck have been sitting in the dining room for weeks. I had to have hubby help me move them. 😆

Behinds the scenes bookcases

I don't know why, but this little vignette behind the couch, just makes me smile. It's a mix of faux and real. 

Fresh and faux vignette

That 'Christmas' cactus bloomed for me at Christmas. Now it's blooming again! I've never had one bloom twice. What a nice surprise!

Cactus blooming

A few weeks ago, I decided it was finally time to put some photos on the wall. I put this photo gallery together. I just love looking at family!😍

We just got these two chairs not too long ago. They are sturdy and comfortable. We picked them up at Sam's Club, of all places.

Gallery wall and chairs

Aren't these tulips just lovely? I bought 2 sets of these white tulips off of Amazon. They look and feel so real! The quality is very nice!

And how about those fun and adorable pink pillows with the pom poms!! I found those on Amazon as well! Pink Pom Pom Pillows.

Living room to front door

This view! I love the pops of pink here and there, but not too girly.

Living room to dining room

I wanted to keep the decor simple on the TV console. So, I added a couple of bright green faux ferns I found at Target.

So, there you have it. It's fresh, it's simple. I really like how it all turned out! I wasn't going to let a little construction keep me from having some fun decorating for spring!

I hope you enjoyed the spring tour! Up next is Cindy, from DIY Beautify. You're going to love her. She has such a beautiful style!

Blessings!

  1. I've lived in the house with a renovation going on and it drove me crazy so I feel you pain. But even with all that going on, you've done such a great job at making your space look inviting, cozy and springy! I love everything you've done. The touches of pin, the sofa table vignette and the wall collage but my hands-down favorite is the front door basket! Oh my golly, I want that! Hope things get back to normal for you soon so you can sit and enjoy it all. Glad to be hopping with you this week. Oh! And I learned something new. All these many years we've called a hand truck a dollie so I looked it up. We've been wrong! Now I'll sound so smart. :)

  2. Nothing like tulips to bring Spring into our homes! Love the soft pinks too. And hey, you beat me to that master closet makeover. I've been postponing that project for the longest time. Looking forward to drawing inspiration from yours.

  9. Love that you "keep it real" by showing what it's really like living in a home during a major reno! And, the importance of having a pretty space to relax at the end of a busy work day! Love those tulips! They look so real! And, I just noticed we got the same ruffled green napkins!!! Great minds think alike!!!
