It’s the last day of January (yay!) and I’m already dreaming of spring. Big time. I’m sure many of you are right there with me. I’m literally counting down the days to more sunshine and warmer weather. It’s still a ways off for us here in snowy Colorado, but I’m so excited for February because that means we’re getting closer. Little by little we are getting closer. High five to that my friends! I’ve been adding little pops of spring all over the house lately, trying to find the balance between late winter decor and my desire to put bright happy things like purdy flowers and greenery everywhere. I think I’ve found a pretty good balance of late winter and early spring in our living room, so that’s what I’m sharing with you today. I’ve also rearranged all the furniture and changed just about everything since my last full living room tour, so I figured it’s high time for a little update!
Have you been by Michael’s recently? You should go. Just take my word for it and go. They’ve put out all their spring decor already and it’s absolutely heavenly. I found many of the greenery in today’s post, like that adorable little potted flower, at Michael’s.
I actually made this hanging planter box. I’m soooooo happy with how it turned out and it’s perfect for spring. I’ll be sharing the tutorial for that soon!
Aren’t these faux flowers the perfect mix of winter and spring? I love the little buds of pink, but they’re really subtle and not “too” flowery. I think they’re great for this time of year.
This crocheted throw is recent thrifted find. Isn’t it pretty? I found it at my favorite local thrift shop for $15. I brought it home, threw it in the wash, and it’s been in this spot ever since. I LOVE it.
I added that vintage headboard piece over the top of our reading nook and I really like the change. Remember I had the “fresh eggs” sign there before? I just needed something different in the spot and this worked perfectly. It’s funny how the smallest change can be so refreshing and energizing. This living room feels brand new after rearranging the furniture and adding in a few early pops of color. I decided to leave a couple winter items out, like my oversized fluffy pillows and lots of cozy blankets, but somehow it all seems to work for a late winter/early spring living room.
I can’t wait to share the tutorial for that hanging planter box, it’s coming soon! Have you started to decorate with spring decor yet or is it too soon for you? Let me know. I’d be tickled pink to hear from you, so don’t be shy!
