As always, I’ve had an idea of how I’d like to have the space decorated well in advance of actually putting it all together. One major necessity on my mind was to find floral patterned pillows. I’ve obsessively searched and searched, but never could find exactly what I wanted. Luckily though, I did find exactly what I wanted for summer, so I decided to keep the cost of pillows for spring to a minimum and got these pretties 2 for $24 at Marshall’s. They dress up the space so nicely!
I told you I love fresh flowers. Are you ready for even more? Haha! I sprinkled bowls filled with small floral arrangements around the room to brighten up the otherwise pretty neutral space. That’s actually one of the great things about a neutrally furnished space. You can easily transition the look with minimum effort!
One thing I’m sort of obsessed with this season is terracotta pots. You’ll see that the fireplace houses some with succulents in them. You even saw one in the entryway on the table! A larger pot is sitting inside of a basket on my coffee table, with calla lilies potted inside of it. And I’ll admit, I might be going sort of overboard with this obsession, but I added yet another pot with a larger indoor plant to sit in front of the fireplace. I just love the look!
And now I am going to introduce you to another obsession of mine. Brass! Okay, you know about it already from this post, but my obsession goes far beyond just candlesticks. If I pass a brass figurine in the thrift shop, you can bet it’s going into my basket, much to the dismay of my husband, who is probably sure I’m certifiable considering the amount of brass we have stored away at this point. Haha!
These swans are my favorite out of my collection. I found them in Iowa, along with the set of brass candlesticks I shared with y’all in this post. It was truly like hitting the jackpot! Normally I come across ducks, or the larger brass swans, but these are so dainty and seem perfectly “spring” to me, so out of storage they came! I may never put them away. *sigh*
Here’s another view of the living room. I love that we have so much seating now! Recently we had many family members over at once, and we were able to all find a comfortable seat. That’s always been my goal! Oh, and is anyone else irked that my smaller succulent on the mantel isn’t between the two taller ones? Ah! I’m such a sucker for symmetry! How did I miss that?!?! It’s probably because one of my succulents died on me, so I had to remove it for the shot and didn’t put much more thought into styling that space. It sill looks good though, I think!
Here’s another close-up of the small floral arrangements I made. It didn’t take much to put these together. Some greenery, a few daffodils, and viola, an arrangement!
See my brass duck? Love!
Another one! Still love! Haha!
Well folks, that’s all for now! I had hoped to be able to share more, but the kitchen is still being renovated, and the dining room is a hot mess and too terrible to share because of it. I promise I’ll be sure to share it all once everything is done! Until then, let’s look again at this clean and refreshed space. So calming! I hope y’all think so too!
