Spring Home Tour and Spring Decorating

Sharing is caring!

Today I am sharing a little spring home tour of our downstairs that has me feeling like warm days are on their way! 

I am joining a group of 8 likeminded bloggers who are opening up their home and giving their own spring home tours, all in the name of warm weather. When you get done here I will have the next home on the list linked for you!

While I don’t “decorate for spring” exactly, I do appreciate my home feeling fresh with the change of seasons. I want all the winter and off-season things put away and out of my sight. Who doesn’t love opening up the windows for the warm breeze (before the pollen hits!)?  Fresh flowers, greens, and a new wreath on the door is about all I need!

Welcome To My Spring Home Tour of 2020spring home tour blue double front door with glass

How ya like my new front door color? We painted these doors the same color of our shutters. (Read about our home’s paint colors here). I haven’t actually shown the newly painted doors yet, so you’re getting the first peek! I need to get rid of that dead tree on my porch first before I make it official. 😉

Isn’t that wreath CUTE? I made it with my daughter last weekend – we just hot glued a big velvet ribbon (THIS wide, velvet ribbon) onto THIS WREATH. It only took about 10 minutes.  That’s about all I have in me for a DIY these days!

I wanted to make this spring wreath for weeks but my Target store was always sold out of the white wreath. I ended up ordering it from Target online – I always (conveniently) forget that Target does that free 2 day shipping! Oh well, it was worth it!

stairs going up on the spring home tour

Come on in. It looks like usual but we stuffed all the toys scattered on the floor into that popular La Jolla basket (right there between the blue chairs!) and I picked the pillows up off of the floor for you. My poor pillows don’t get any respect here.

Hydrangeas on the coffee table just say spring and summer to me! Sometimes I put out these faux hydrangeas in giant square glass vases when I can’t find good ones in the grocery store. They are so lifelike and for that price you can get a whole bunch of them to fill up a vase!

We are loving our indoor/outdoor rug for family life in here! The kids aren’t technically supposed to eat over here, but you know what they say about rules….. It’s nice to be able to relax about maintaining something that’s beautiful!

If you are curious about our sectional, we have bought this exact sofa 3 times. I wrote a Lounge Sofa Review you can read here.

We moved that lovely bar cart in here just to switch things up, and in place of the liquor bottles I put some of those faux greens in a vase. That bar cart is so much fun to style. My plan is to use it for desk supplies once I have my office set up… but this is too cute to move!

kitchen with a small lemon tree on the counter

My lemon tree is totally fake – but isn’t it cute? Perfect for spring! I read somewhere lemon trees are really difficult trees to keep alive – very finicky – so I am satisfied with my faux. If you can convince me otherwise- I’ll gladly take the bait because a real live lemon tree sounds amazing!

I was spring cleaning a few weeks ago and washed our kitchen runner (made out of polyester) and showed you the process live on Instagram. This rug was SO filthy with a year’s worth of grime. I scrubbed it down with the hose and dish soap in the back yard – hung it up to dry – and it looks brand new again!

Don’t worry – it does look as if a child was here but there weren’t any kids involved in the cutting of those lemons. That cute dip dye stool gets a ton of use from our kids, but actually Jose and I use it frequently for those way up high cabinets.

Fresh daisys in my two favorite matching vases are a free way to decorate. The navy blue buffalo runner is a new find I found at Pottery Barn while browing last weekend. It’s preppy and springlike! I am a sucker for a good classic pattern.

  1. Your home is so beautiful. How do you hang wreaths on your front doors? We recently bought a home with doors similar to the ones you have and I’m not sure the best way to hang my wreaths. Thanks!

  2. Love your home and your style:) I read your sofa review- thanks! Just wondering where your blue chairs are from in your family room (with the lounge sofa sectional. Thanks!

    • Thank you for reading! Those chairs are from a local company called Steven Shell Living and they are called the Lulu chairs. I believe they have stores both in Charleston SC and Raleigh NC. 🙂 Hope that helps!

  3. Hi
    Your home is beautiful! Trying to pick a navy blue for my dining room…do you know what color you used?
    Also, the pale blue color you used for the island in the kitchen?
    Thanks

    • Thank you! The island is Krypton by Sherwin Williams. The dining room is a navy grasscloth wallpaper.. Kind of a medium navy. Benjamin Moore has some great navy paints.

  4. Your home is stunning! Do you mind if I ask what size rug you’ve used in your living room? I have the same Lounge II Sectional and am eyeing the Pottery Barn jute rug you formerly had under yours 🙂 Thanks so much for your help!

    Reply
    • Hey! When I had the jute rug it was massive- I had the biggest size and it was too big honestly. It ran behind the sofa and I didn’t love the way it looked. I have a 9×12 size now and it’s the perfect size for the room.

      I would put down blue painter’s tape on the floor and tape out exactly the dimensions of where the rug will go. Stand back and see how it looks. That is helpful!

  5. Gorgeous home! I too love shades of blue including dusty aquas. May I ask the color of paint on the wall behind the bar cart? I love the warmer whites and that Wall is perfect… At least on my monitor and do you know the white used for your cabinets in the kitchen?

    Reply
    • Hi! The cabinets are a warmer white – you are right about that. They are just the factory finish the cabinets came in though, we did not have the painted. So, I sometimes think it is close to a BM white dove.
      The wall where the barcart is with shiplap is all extra white by SW. Hope that helps!
