Spring Home Tour Sneak Peak - Life on Kaydeross Creek

Spring Home Tour 2017

Hey everyone! Welcome to our Spring Home Tour! This winter has seemed like the longest winter evvvverrr up in here in the Northeast so it can be hard to find inspiration when you look out the window and still see snow at the end of March. I figured if I can’t see it outside right now, I’ll surround myself with it on the inside!  Come on in….

 

Farmhouse -Spring Home Tour 2017 - Family Room & Entry - Life on Kaydeross Creek

 

I started by adding some robin’s egg blue here and there with pillows and then added a few other touches of spring like nests with eggs and, of course, flowers. I tried to keep it subtle and laid back.

This is the view when you enter our front door. I picked up this old dresser at the Salvation Army for $35. I’m still debating on whether or not to paint it. Would you?

This “Adirondack crate” was a project we did last spring which you can see HERE.  I love the way it frames the giant mason jar and adds texture and a rustic feel.

This is our family room where we play games at the table and hang out.  For those of you that have been here awhile, you’ll notice that I painted the coffee table white. I have to be honest, I really miss the orange.  What do you think? You can see the table makeover HERE.

I talk a little bit about living in our “season of life” and ours now is with a 11 year old and an 8 year old who still likes to jump on the furniture.  Therefore, we hang on to the old furniture for a bit longer.  Sigh, maybe next year.

I picked up this great little corrugated metal container locally at a  cute little shop. I love the mixed metals and color it adds. You can find similar ones HERE.

These flowering branches are from Michaels, the chunky candlestick holders are from Hobby Lobby and I picked up the gold ones from a thrift store.  I made the “P” sign out of leftover MDF we had from the laundry room project.

I used the same leaf stencil on the “P” sign as I did on this tray, which is made out of an old frame. It was one of my favorite projects and you can see how we did it HERE.  I couldn’t find pillows that had a print I liked so I made these. I found the cute little bird fabric at Jo-Ann Fabric. The solid pillows are from Marshall’s.

I love this corner. My husband made the barn door and we made the ottoman from an old crate. You can see that HERE.  I just recently re-covered it in a old burlap sack I picked up at a thrift store for $1 just in time for the Spring home tour.

Again, that’s not my favorite fabric on the chair but that chair used to belong to my in-laws and hubby and I used to sit together in it back in High School. I don’t know what’s scarier, that it was that long ago or that we both could fit in it at the same time back then. 🙂

This room has just started to come together. I picked up the pillows at Pier One and the lamp is from Target. The screen shelf was a recent project and you can see that HERE. I haven’t shared the Farmhouse sign project yet but stay tuned.   I got the coffee table at the Salvation Army for, wait for it, $40. Yes, $40.

This painted antique hutch is one of my favorite pieces. You can see it’s transformation HERE.

We made this mini barn door recently and you can see that project HERE. I love the light blue against the stone on the fireplace and the pops of green.

This is our foyer which I updated last spring and you can see that HERE.

Spring Home Tour – Green & White & Spring All Over!

Hey there and welcome to our spring home tour! I hope you all had a great weekend! It was cold here but still beautifully sunny and bright. It made it that much easier to finish up my Spring decorating because all that sunshine made me think it was warm outside.  That’s all I really needed as my heart is in Spring mode anyway so it quickly became green & white & Spring all over!

Whenever I decorate any room or create a vignette, I need to have a “jumping off point” or at least some color inspiration. In my son’s room, for example, I used the quilt.  For my spring decor this year I decided I’m goin’ GREEN! I want to mix in my neutrals (you’re surprised, I know) and carry over a bit of the black and white I used at Christmas.  I’ll throw in some browns and creams and bring in lots of natural elements.  Sounds like farmhouse decor to me!

Here was my inspiration:

One of the easiest areas in my home to do this is in my kitchen. It’s black and white anyway and adding different shades of green was easy with things I already had…

It’s easier to flow from one season to the other when you stick with basic pieces and neutrals. The beauty is that many of the pieces are thrift store finds or I picked them up for cheap at HomeGoods, Hobby Lobby or Target. Last week I shared my Spring mantel  using some great finds…

Our dining room is hard to truly deck out for any holiday or season because of all of the windows. They are beautiful and let so much light in but there is no room for a buffet or hutch. The table is the focal point….

In our family room is the shelf across from the fireplace. I like using neutral colors but lots of texture and layers in this spring home tour.

If you keep it simple and use things you have, you can transition from one season to the next fairly easily and within budget. Have you started your Spring decorating yet? Do you have go to pieces that you use all year from season to season?

Happy DIY’ing!
