Spring Home Tour

After slowly decorating the house one room at a time due to a crazy schedule, I’m really excited to finally be able to share more with you today. Even the entryway got a little sprucing up for Spring.

What do you think of the new mail drop?

Once I finished the mantle early last week in pale blues, greens and whites I decided to use that same color scheme throughout the rest of the house and on the front porch as well.

No matter what season I’m decorating for people regularly ask me what it’s like to live in a house that has such an open floor plan. My answer is always the same.

032515-4

It’s awesome when you’re entertaining. I can be in the kitchen popping popcorn and making drinks while the visiting littles are lounging the in the living room watching movies.

 I can hear them giggle when they’re trying to find a seat in sea of pillows

 or they’re asking me where to put the juice boxes.

032515-7

It’s also nice to be able to pop over to the coffee station when I’m snuggled up reading a good book

032515-8

 or magazine.

Having an open floor plan is also great when you’re feeding a small group at the kitchen table

or a bigger crowd at the dining room table.

But you have to make sure you have the kitchen is picked up before your guests arrive or they’ll be able to see your mess. Sometimes the mess isn’t even in the kitchen. It’s when you’re in the middle of taking your spring home tour pictures and your dog is off to the side having a blast.

032515-11

If your guests are looking at the mess in your kitchen they’re missing those super cute bunny plates on your table

032515-12

and the little baskets you found while you were out shopping with your mom last summer filled with the white flowers that are growing right outside your front door

032515-13

or the eggs she let you borrow for your spring inspired tablescape.

032515-14

They might also miss the super awesome china hutch display that you took you hours to get “just right”

032515-15

and the present nature gave you just for the occasion.

032515-16

Of course, they might ask you how you keep the natural history inspired posters on the wall and you’ll tell them with painters tape.

032515-17

And when they leave you’ll think about the all the messes you cleaned up before they even got there and realize it was all worth it.

032515-18

Because there’s just something about opening the door to your home no matter what state it’s in and realizing you love where you live.

      Thanks so much Vicki, I really appreciate it! We could start a store with all of our collections 🙂 I love it that we love the same things. We’re going to be fantastic shopping buddies one day. Hugs, CoCo

    Coco, what a beautiful home! Not just with decor but with love and memories that you’re making. I even loved your “mess” pic. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your home wugh us. I wish I was closer. Your house would be one of my favorites to visit and sit a spell! Hugs!

      Oh my word Angie, it was like Tally was right on cue with her toy mess. I wish you could have seen her face when she realized I was standing right over her and she had been caught red handed 🙂 I wish you lived closer too, all the time. Thank you for your sweet words. Hugs for a happy day, CoCo

    Your home looks beautiful for spring CoCo 🙂 Your china hutch display is definitely “just right” and even the “messes” look charming. Your love for where you live shines through in your post. Happy spring sweet friend! Bwg ~~~

    I like your vintage and spring decor. Is that some kind of spring holding the mail? So creative! I have an open concept kitchen and living/dining too. It is motivation to keep the dishes clean and counter tops cleared. 🙂

      Thank you so much Emily! Yes, it’s some sort of spring but I don’t know if it came from a mattress or something else. They were in a rusty/crusty box of stuff I picked up one day. You are so right about the dishes. If I’m ever in a pinch I immediately put the dishes in the sink with hot sudsy water and let them soak 🙂 Hope you have a happy day, Coco

    Coco, I love your home and love it all dolled up for Spring. Your story telling is always so enjoyable and makes me giggle along with you. Our doggie would be doing the same thing too. It looks beautiful xo Lisa

      Thank you Candice! Having the open floor plan include the kitchen is nice especially when you have people over because it makes it really easy to bring food over or refill drinks. It also makes keeping the kitchen clean a priority which I can tell you is not always easy 🙂 Hope you’re having an awesome day, Coco

      That’s very sweet of you to say, bonbon, thank you! I’ve been collecting scales for a bit now and pick them up whenever I find one. It seems they’re getting harder and harder to find though. Heading over to check out your salvaged sliding doors now. Thanks for stopping by, Coco
