Happy Spring!

Don't you just love Spring! I know I do!

We've had some really mild weather here in Michigan but we all know that warm weather is probably a good month away. So, I've decided to pay more attention to the calendar than the weather report and add some Spring to our family room.

I haven't made any big changes in here for a while.  We're adding some rustic touches with wood trim and beams in some of the house and I think I'll soon do the same in here.
But to celebrate Spring, I've added some pink blooms.

A Spring mix on the coffee table and some cherry blossoms behind the couch add just a soft touch of color.
I bought this ginger jar at HomeGoods. It's a lighter blue than my other blue and white and I love it in here. Because it's lighter, it doesn't seem to be quite so formal and traditional so it's perfect in our casual family room.
I had gotten influenced by how popular silver was recently but gold has always been my favorite so I changed all my picture frames and accents back to gold all around our house.


I found this little pot at HobbyLobby. It's kind of rustic finish. There were a couple of different shapes and sizes and I bought a couple for the deck this summer.





We're supposed to get snow later this week so I'm enjoying the sun today. Have a wonderful week!

love and blessings~

  3. Lynda, I have a hard time coming up with something original to say when I visit you because I've already used all the adjectives: beautiful, serene, gorgeous, french country. I love it all! The pink flowers are perfect for this time of year. I like the way you've styled the sofa table too. :)

    Your house needs to be in a magazine.

    1. Thank you, Rita! They changed the 'snow' to 'rain' for one of the days so hopefully it won't be too bad! Hope you're doing well! Happy Easter!

  6. Your room looks beautiful. I am happy to hear that gold is coming back because I have never changed some gold things that came with our house! Love it when problems solve themselves while I do nothing...

  7. What a truly "great" room you have there. Everything looks so pretty and the touch of pink is perfect for spring! I was just listening to the weather forecast. Wouldn't you know I convinced hubby to take off the snow tires since it's been so mild. We're expecting 4 to 8 inches. Oh well at this time of year it won't last long...just a small set back. We Michiganders are eternal optimists aren't we!
