We’ve been spending more time in our homes the past few months and it has given us all the opportunity to do some of those projects we have been putting off. It’s time to add a little Spring into your décor and it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. It’s also a great time to do some clearing out and open the window to air out the winter blues!

I always start with my foyer table by adding a little color and these tulips make me happy. You can use faux florals or treat yourself to a beautiful bouquet on occasion to greet you at the door. Wood bowls are big this year and allow you to add texture. Keeping things neutral but interesting is very on trend this year. I love this table at the entrance because it has several drawers that allows everyone a spot to put their keys, sunglasses and whatever else they need to drop at the door. No clutter, which keeps things organized and pretty.

A pop of green is a must for Spring and Summer and I love this fern and white pot to lighten things up. I tucked a sweet bird in the vignette and added home beads for interest. Wood beads are a great way to layer décor in any area in your home.

Lanterns can be used year-round but by adding some elements of Spring to this table, brings the outside in and that makes us all happy. The simple white and black display that is being used this season, will go with any décor style.

I love to use a watering can to display flowers and tucking a nest with eggs in a flower pot under the bench is another way to bring elements of nature to your home. I love mixing old with new and it’s a wonderful way to use things that are meaningful to you. This bench has been passed down and I love using it in my home. Using pieces you love will always be in style.

Now more than ever we realize how important our homes are to our mental well-being. I hope I inspire you to make your space more enjoyable and a place that comforts you and your family in this time of crisis. We are all in this together.

Stylishly Yours,
