Why is Spring decor my favourite? Because I can go overboard with some of the decorative items I love most - flowers, pastels and nature-inspired things. Hooray! Today I'm so excited to be joining some of my Canadian blogging friends as we share our Spring home tours with you for the Canadian Bloggers Home Tour. Grab a latte, come take a virtual tour of my home decorated for Spring, and then make sure to pop down to the bottom of this post to see all of the other home tours happening this week. Happy decorating!
Welcome to our home. We built our house ourselves in 2013, and you can read more of that story here. Even though it's a new build, I think it has the vintage charm that a lot of historical homes do. We're slowly working at adding more character to our house as we finish it.
In case you're new here - hello! My name is Christina and I'm a mom of 3 girls, a country dweller, a crafter, and a cookie baker. You can read more about me and my blog right here. Thank you for stopping by!
We live in Alberta, Canada, and it's still quite snowy here. The outside of our house doesn't look that pretty right now (hello, brown mushy grass and leaf-less trees!), but I've tried to bring some life and Spring colour into our interior to celebrate the new season.
On our show cabinet in our entry, I've placed some fluffy pink faux flowers and a blue glass jug. I love these colours for Spring, and I guarantee that if you add these hues into your home it will feel instantly fresh for Spring!
Our living room has been filled with fresh and faux flowers and some happy, pastel colours. I've also switched our drapes to a fresh, white option and I think that really makes the room feel lighter and Spring-ready.
I love sewing pillow covers for a quick and easy seasonal update. Click here to learn how to make your own cushion covers.
We still adore our Paris sectional from The Brick (we have the stone colour, and it's been great with the kids), and I've moved our Daphne Accent Chair opposite the sectional. I'm loving this arrangement - it feels open and less crowded than what I had before!
The mantel has been decorated in whites, flowers and faux greenery, and you can read more details about that right here.
Fresh flowers can be expensive to purchase and continue replacing, so I recommend investing in some high quality faux florals for decorating. I love using them in my decor - especially for Spring! Add them to jars, baskets, and even loose on shelves.
Opposite our living room is our formal sitting room. Here's where I hide my white coloured furniture from grubby kid fingers and enjoy a cup of tea or a latte to myself. Nothing much has changed here, but it gets a little update for Spring with some faux florals and a birdcage filled with greenery.
Finally, our kitchen feels fresh and ready for the warmer weather with some flowers and some of my favourite colours - blues, greens and pinks.
I made the drapes myself, and you can see how I made them right here. They were meant for Spring!
Our Hancock Park hutch has been decorated simply with white plates and turquoise glass. I even added a few faux hydrangea stems in turquoise to freshen everything up.
We've already done some entertaining here this month, and I can't wait to decorate this table & hutch even more when we host Easter dinner soon! When we add the extra leaf to this table, it's long enough to host a fabulous party.
For our island, I found a rustic tiered tray and decorated it in Spring finds. Aqua plates, faux greens, and faux nests give the kitchen a nature-inspired, fresh look.
Thank you so much for touring our home decorated for Spring!
