Spring home tour 2017

Spring has sprung at the Boone house. All of the red berries, evergreens and heavy textiles have been replaced by lighter colors, flowers and flowering branches and breezy textiles.

When I decorate for spring, I like to use a “less is more” approach. Lots of natural elements and not a lot of decorating.

I’m not 100% satisfied, but here’s where we are so far.

I later added a basket.

Our front entry boasts a simple vignette of nests, milk glass, rabbits and branches in a jar.

I’ve used these bird pillows for the past few years, but this year they seemed too plain.

I’ve decided to use these beauties instead:

That’s better, don’t you think?

I’ve owned this lovely china tray since college but have never used it. It looks lovely corralling my kitchen utensils.

The window looking into our dining room got a little greenery in the form of boxwood.

I changed just a few elements in our tiered tray and left it in the center of our table. Gone are the pine cones and plaid napkins: now nests, rabbits and springy napkins have taken their place.

On our sideboard hutch, our apothecary jars are filled with some springy goodness.

How sweet is that little glass bird?

Our “mantle” is looking lovely, with the bird theme continued.

Since I know it’s hard to see with the playroom behind it, here’s a closer look.

Again, that sweet bird! I just love them!!

My home tour isn’t completely finished yet so I will share the changes I’m going to make. 

Thanks for visiting!
