Early Spring Home Tour


It's hard to believe that spring is almost here, but if there's a good indication of that, it has to be the beautiful weather that we had over the weekend and even yesterday. Those delightful temperatures in the sixties and seventies were a good sample of what to expect.

It's definitely the time to open those windows, let some fresh air in, and add a few signs of the new season inside our homes!

Welcome to my Spring house, I'm so excited that you're here! Once again, I'm joining my dear friend Marty from A Stroll Thru Life and a fabulous group of blogging friends to showcase our homes for the new season. All the links to each of the beautiful home tours can be found at the end of this post.

If you're stopping by from Decor To Adore, you might know that Laura is renovating her kitchen. Don't you love kitchen renovations? Oh, I love them, and she's turning her kitchen into a stunner. Not only that, but she also managed to give her home a lovely lavender glow for Spring.

Today I'm sharing part of my downstairs all dolled up and ready for the warm days ahead!

Let's start in the living room where this room sported some winter attire... the red rug, black curtains, and dark accents were removed. I almost went down to the bare-bones, as you can see in the picture below.

Once the weather started to change, all those dark accents were a little too much.

LIVING ROOM

The white canvas I was left with made me remember that I've always wanted to add a fun design to this wall, there in between the b & b planks.

Well, after three rolls of wallpaper and a few accessories, this is how this room looks now. 💙💙💙

I love this wallpaper! It looks as if denim/jean fabric was added to the wall and it brings so much character with all those printed birds. 
This is a peel-and-stick wallpaper which means that there's no texture to it. For this 12' x 9' wall I used three rolls, but I was running a bit short of it. I even had to patch up some areas.

By the way, this paper is very forgiving when you do that, which is always a big plus.

You can check the little video about this wallpaper install.

This big focal wall filled the room with color, but I still wanted to bring another contrasting color to the space.

These tulips were love at first sight. I love the two-tone, strong orange on the outside and a soft yellow on the inside.

My fiddle leaf was moved from the corner of my office to this central spot in between these two rooms.

Last year I gave my fiddle leaf a good amount of TLC and she's been thriving. She got another little trim last week, as one side was growing faster than the other. This is the perfect time of the year to trim and transplant your household plants. 


The old sofa was spruced up with some throw pillows and a blanket.

🐶 Louie's guarding post is on top of that chair in between the windows. He's always there, keeping a watchful eye on everything that moves outside.

He normally makes an appearance in my seasonal tours (especially seated in his favorite chair). However, Mr. RLC was home while I took these photos and Louie was spending some quality time with his dad <3.

I always cover the chair with a slipcover, that's the best way to keep both, those furry friends and ourselves happy.

These carrots were the first element I grabbed after a quick look into my Easter bin in the basement.

Followed up by these engraved eggs that I keep on displaying year after year. They were a Pier 1's find before they closed up their stores.

HOME OFFICE

Let's now head towards the contiguous home office. I don't usually take a wide shot of this room because of all the light coming from those windows and the wooden tones in the room give me some weird shades, but this time it kind of worked in my favor.

On the shelves, little faux plants are my sure way to bring Spring inside this room.

I love working here, it's such a bright room.

A bouquet of hydrangeas and that little fellow peeking out from behind the vase make me smile every time I look at them.

THE KITCHEN

In the kitchen, I prefer to display fruits and vegetables as seasonal decor.  A big bowl of oranges is not only the centerpiece on the island, I'm a girl who loves fruits... Mangoes, apples, pineapples, bananas, papayas, I like them all. It's good to have them at the ready. 

The big black bowl was an easy DIY a few weeks ago. I adore its size and how sturdy it is.

You can check the complete details on how to DIY a black pedestal bowl right HERE.


Here, a little treat for my kids. ;)

I hope you enjoyed my Spring home tour and maybe found some inspiration to add some spring cheer to your space!

  13. Christina,
    You are so inspiring and very talented! I absolutely love that wallpaper and need to find a spot to use it. I'm pretty obsessed with blue. I went and read your post on the ceiling. I've never done anything like this on my own, but rather inspired to try my hand at the underlayment for a plank wall. I have 2 kids that are getting married in the next 6 months. I'm going to have 2 empty bedrooms to decorate!
