Practical Tip: Do What Makes You Happy!

Spring home decor is on my mind. I’m over all the snow we have in Colorado and ready to transition to my Spring decor.

Welcome to our home! For those of you new to my blog, I’m Kelly and I live in beautiful Colorado. Yes, it is still snowy here but as you are about to see it is Spring inside our home! It makes me happy and that is my first tip for you.

Do what makes you happy. It’s your home! It’s OK to not always follow the rules. 😉

Welcome to our entryway.

Our newly remodeled tile entry was a risk. But it was something that made me happy and I am so glad we did it! I had fun dressing up this area for Spring. I added Spring vignettes throughout our downstairs, just like the one below. I also eliminated all winter trees and winter type pillows from this area and of course added some color!

Practical Tip: Vignettes and Collections

As you walk through our entryway you land in our dining room. I love the light in this room and had fun creating a fun vignette (collection) of my favorite ironstone blue and white dishes. While at the grocery store I had to grab a few bunches of these daffodils.

The pretty pop of yellow is just what I was craving for that Spring feeling! Flowers are easy for adding instant Spring home decor.

When creating vignettes I like to use the rule of three. I create different layers and varying heights with objects that I love. Even though this grouping obviously has more than three items your eyes really only see three things.

The flowers as one, the group of cups and plates as one and the layered tray and basket as one.

Practical Tip: Faux Flowers & Color

From the dining room you are greeted by my beloved green painted dresser.  I LOVE the color green and you will see it weaved throughout our home.

To the left is our kitchen which I will be sharing more in detail next week here on the blog so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a post! The kitchen is my favorite room because it was designed by my husband and myself!

My go to for adding color is through flowers both real and faux. This is an easy way to transition from winter to spring decor!  These gorgeous pink peonies are faux and from Pier One. I found these gorgoeus ones that are similar since Pier One is no longer selling them.

Each year I try to add more faux flowers while I wait for my garden and my real peonies to grow. And each year they seem to look more and more real. You can see a list of all of my favorite faux flowers HERE!

On our kitchen counter I brought out my beloved jadeite and more faux pink peonies. I just recently bought these at Cozy Cottage and they are incredible and look so real!

Pinks and greens are some of my favorite Spring color combos. Choose colors that are bight and make you happy and weave them throughout your home. If you look in most of my pictures you will see blues and greens consistently.

Practical Tip: Don’t Be Afraid to Start Early

When I transition my decor from Winter to Spring I always start a few weeks before it’s actually Spring. I do this for a few reason.

One, it makes me happy and two, I usually change it up several times before I finally find that perfect combo.

Also, a lot of stores put out Spring decor early and it inspires me. I will pick up a few things and stash them away and it’s fun to bring them out!

I put away heavier darker blankets and pillows and exchange them for thinner white or bright colored ones.

You will also notice a few cute bunnies start to appear around our house.

As you can see I started early and I don’t regret it one bit. Instead I plan to enjoy it for quite some time!
