Today I am sharing the spring decor around my house:
I love decorating the top of the buffet I got from World Market. It is actually a media stand, but I liked that there was open shelving and cabinets so I could display some of my bright colored stoneware, but still hide away seasonal pieces, like Christmas dishes. I love this Easter tree that my mom gave me years ago. It goes well with the "hello" sign I picked up from Target's dollar spot this season. (Yes, it makes me walk around singing both Adele's and Lionel Richie's songs!) I also added a bowl of decorative Easter eggs I picked up from TJ Maxx last year. The butterfly plate on the wall was given to me by my mother-in-law and she also painted the bunny picture.
Staying in the dining room, I also decorated the shelves in my corner china hutch. I always struggle with how to style these shelves since they are triangular. After scouring Pinterest for decorating ideas, I got to work shopping my house. I store my Princess House trifle dish and stemware on the top shelve year round, so I added the rectangular vase full of corks and the pine cone to update the look. I filled the blue stone ware bowl with more of the eggs that I used on the buffet and added a bunny and floral pitcher. I also am displaying a green, glass dish handed down to me from my grandma, in the background. I wrapped a piece of burlap ribbon around the candle and vase for a cohesive look .
Moving into the living room, I updated my mantel by adding matching turquoise vases and candle stick. I also added a turquoise bird I found at an antique mall and a milk glass vase that was my grandmothers. I switched out a mirror for a flower print painted by my mother-in-law and I made my own artwork by framing a piece of chevron fabric.
I also added another bowl of Easter eggs, a bright red candle holder, and a Faith, Hope, & Love sign.
In our sitting room, I updated the couch pillows with teal print butterfly pillow shams from H&M and a lightweight teal throw I picked up from Goodwill. I also added a teal glass vase, filled with greenery, to the end table. I filled the woven basket with a small bird print pillow and some magazines.
On the other side of the room I added a homemade pillow to the leather side chair. My grandmother did the needle work and my mother-in-law made it into a pillow for me. A lot of work went into this piece and I definitely cherish it.
