We are super excited to start celebrating all things Spring this week and today, we’re sharing our Spring inspired entry!
The day I took these pictures it was THE perfect Florida day. The temperature was in the low 70s, the sun was shining bright in a cloudless sky and there was a light coastal breeze that was so enticing, I kept the windows open until nightfall.
Every time I open the windows and doors when the coastal winds are blowing our house always smells like a mix of salty marsh and lemongrass. We love citrus candles and burn them all the time. I keep saying we should just plant some citrus trees on our property so we can smell that delicious scent every day. Maybe this year will be the year.
Our house is currently decorated for a vintage inspired Spring and it’s been so much fun to change up all the décor. Spring is one of our favorite seasons and I know it is for so many of you too!
The entry is just inside the front door but because we live in an open concept home you can see multiple rooms from that vantage point. It’s the biggest reason we’re big believers in keeping a consistent color palette for each season.
There is almost always a specific flower or a piece of fabric that inspires our seasonal décor and it’s true for this spring season too. I found this wreath at Michaels a few weeks ago and totally fell in love!
We love, love, love peonies but they don’t grow in our area so we are unabashedly embracing faux peonies this year.
I found this old watering can for $3 at Renninger’s a few years ago
The gray and white buffalo check pillow is from IKEA.
We’re constantly on the hunt for pretty white bed skirts since we use them for the couches on the front porch too. Using white makes them super easy to care for because you can just throw them in the wash and bleach them if you need to.
The burlap sack is actually an old coffee sack we also picked up at Renningers a few years ago.
I love all that tattered fringe.
Most of the time this area is filled with backpacks, purses, flip flops, and bags of goodies I’ll be taking to clients so it’s always fun to see the entry dressed up like this for Spring.
Whenever people ask if our house, “really looks like that,” it gives me the giggles. We have littles that visit and make messes, aging dogs to clean up after, we track in all sorts of dirt from around the property and there are times this entry is filled with furniture waiting to be painted or delivered.
We do make a huge effort to keep things as neat and tidy as we possibly can which means nearly every day we’re sweeping up everything from dirt to dog hair.
Of course, it’s extra work but it’s definitely worth it!
Investing time in your home will always be worth it no matter what the season. You don’t have to do anything fussy or fancy just do the things that make you feel excited about creating a home you love.
