Is it Spring Yet?!

I don’t know about you, buy these cold, dark, dreary winter days are making me ache for Spring!  I need color, I need fresh clean linens and fabrics, and I need them now.  No more snow and ice and cold for this southern girl.  Bring on the first buds of Spring please!

While I’m wishing the winter away, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my most favorite projects involving color to inspire all of us to start putting a little Spring in our decorating steps.

Luckily my husband and I see eye to eye on most decorative decisions in our home.  I’d describe our furniture as modern/rustic.  We stick with neutral colors and browns for most big pieces {couches, end tables, kitchen table, bar stools, beds, etc…}.  So, the more decorative items in our home are where I like to bring in some pops of color.

I’m a huge throw pillow person.  Since learning to sew, I’ve tackled a few envelope style throw pillows for different spots in our home.

I also LOVE to leave our table set and ready for a meal.  Now, this doesn’t always happen since my two year old has a new found love of coloring in his coloring books, but when I can, I’ve got these beautiful place mats and cloth napkins out on display!

And, who doesn’t adore a cute mason jar upcycle?  I think I’ve got mason jars in every room of our house besides the kid’s bedrooms.  For this one, I applied one thin layer of Annie Sloan chalk paint and added some sweet white daisies for an instant pop of color to our kitchen.

There you have it!  Just a few ways that I bring a little color into our home.  What are some of your color popping tricks?!
