2016 Spring Home Tour

2016 Spring Home Tour

Sharing is caring!

Welcome to the 2016  Hello Spring home tour hosted by Lovely Etc. If you are joining me from another blog, I am so glad you decided to stop by. I have made so much progress on my 1980’s fixer upper since the Christmas tour back in December and I am so excited about sharing the recent updates with you! Just warning you,  my take on the spring tour may not include as much “spring” as you may prefer, as 1.) I am not a huge “seasonal decorator” 2.) I am putting more of a focus on sharing all of the recent developments 3.) I am 37 weeks pregnant with my second child and too huge/ miserable to do much of anything at all.

And I almost forgot to tell ya’ll….Be sure to enter the $400 paypal giveaway at the bottom of my tour!

In the living room, once all of the Christmas decor had been put away back in January, I decided I needed more “glam” in my life. So,  I incorporated new textiles into the scheme with some  luxe throw pillows and traded out my Ikea, Ritva curtains for some silk drapes.

While I decided not to “brighten” my pillows for spring (given I just bought these pillows back in January), I figured fresh flowers would add a little element of festiveness for you guys.

Moving on to the dining room, I traded out the dark gray sheepskin and pillows, for white sheepskin and mustard colored pillows. This allowed for a more light and colorful vibe.

And I had to throw in the “obligatory spring vignette”. Ya know….the one all of us bloggers do with the rain boots?

I also did a fun adaption of DIY Marbled Indigo Eggs I  found on Alice & LoisI will be sharing my take on this project in a few days.

In the foyer, I created a new vignette with abstract art, sea glass and a vase full of lavender….I love lavender!

I “glammed up” my kitchen a bit…trading out the vintage “owl” print for some abstract prints with mirrored frames that I found at HomeGoods.  And to liven up the space, I have a vase full of fresh flowers on the island. kitchen-21


I added some pops of color by displaying my antique jadeite collection in my glass paneled cabinets. Given my love for turquoise,  I was sure to include it on display as well.


We finally made some progress on our bedroom . ….

We ditched the outdated ceiling fan for a drum shade chandelier, and I threw in some down-stuffed pillows. For a source list and more info on our bedroom transformation, visit this post


And in case you didn’t know, my second baby boy is due the first week of April. So, I am super relived to say that his nursery is now complete!

I went with a modern, tribal take on rustic decor.

And just last week, we transformed an under-utilized room into a multi-functional office/mudroom. What I have managed to hide are the washer , dryer and loads of unfolded laundry behind these closet doors.

Thank you guys for stopping by! Now  if you will excuse me, I have a baby to give birth to and some celebratory margaritas to consume once I am no longer an incubator for my unborn child.  I should probably also pack my hospital bags.   I hope you enjoyed my spring home tour.

I can't believe you were able to put the house together for a photo shoot and have it look so gorgous and you are almost ready to have the baby ! You go girl!! The house looks fantastic. And the flowers add such a soft and elegant air for spring. Erica, I hope you have an easy birth and then lots of rest along with that margarita!
