Cottage Style Spring Home Tour

Happy Spring! Ok, so it’s technically not spring on the calendar but it is spring at the cottage. To celebrate the change in season I’m joining in with Carrie from Lovely Etc., for her Color Loving Spring Home Tour. There’s a ton more spring inspiration from my blogging friends so make sure you check them out at the end of the post.

A change of season usually means packing stuff away, getting stuff out and changing pillow covers. It’s not my fave thing to do, especially the pillow covers, but spring is different. It just makes me happy to see the bright fresh colors from flowers or pillow covers and the clean look of more pared down decor.

It usually doesn’t take much to add a bit a spring to a space. A few spring colored pillows in our recently redone sunroom and the greens from my potted herbs and our rescued bird of paradise. It’s doing really well in this space, and recently sprouted two new leaves.

I packed up the faux fur throws and brought out a lighter striped throw. My DIY furry stool is a must in this room so that had to stay out.

Now we just need the leaves to pop up outside and this room will really look like spring.

The kitchen and dining area are another easy place to add a bit of spring. Pillows and throws don’t help much in this area so I rely on fresh flowers. This spring I’ve been gravitating towards yellow…lots of yellow. Probably because we haven’t seen the sun a whole lot this winter.

I finally took down the magnolia leaf garland from around the window and it really opened that area up. I have to admit that I miss it but it was definitely time for it to go.

The glass bottles that I found for $10 at a thrift store are still out and getting tons of use. Even something as simple as daffodils in glass bottles seems to scream spring.

I made just a small change on this wall with the addition of a new plant. I already had a small snake plant and wanted something bigger for this side of the dining area. They are so easy to grow and do well in low light conditions. Plus it gives me that spring green color that I’m looking for.

I hope that my tour has inspired you to add some spring color to your home. Even if you just put away winter decor and add a bouquet of fresh flowers it will give your room a spring vibe. So simple.

Many of my home decor items are listed in my Shop My House tab, if you want to check it out.

      Thanks so much Cassie! We love the sunporch, after an initial deep dislike when we moved in. 😉 It’s a great place to sit and do nothing.

    I love all the beautiful spring touches in your home! That sunroom looks like the perfect place to enjoy the season! So pretty! (We just got another inch of snow so I am envious!)

    Thank you Kristi, your Spring home tour is exactly the flowery, warmth, and beauty my eyes needed to see right about now!! I wish I could jump through the computer screen and land in your gorgeous sun room! I love that you kept the fur covered stool out, its a favorite of mine!

      You guys have had it so rough up North lately. I’ve lived through winters like that so I feel for you. Hopefully it will be the last. Thanks for stopping in to take our spring tour, and for the stool love. It’s the hubs’ fave thing too. 😉

    I too am looking forward to spring. There are flowers everywhere in my home right now. They block out the snow! 😉

      Ha, good for you. Anything to block out that awful white stuff. Thanks for stopping in.

    The sun was shining when I went this morning to get my car inspected. It was so nice because we still have snow on the ground. Love your pops of yellow. The color yellow just seems to make everything bright and gets us thinking about spring!

    Enjoy your bright and sunny day, my friend!

      We just had more snow this week and I’m just over it. It melted quickly but it’s just cold. I’m really ready for spring. Thanks for stopping in to take the tour. Hope your weekend is good! 🙂

      Thanks so much Beth! 🙂 The sunroom is one of our favorite spaces because of all the windows. It’s especially nice in the winter when it’s dark and dreary outside.

    Your Spring home is lovely, and I adore the pops of yellow, fresh flowers and green plants! I live in Arizona, so we are not lacking in sunshine, but I still like to lighten things up for Spring and Summer. You’ve inspired me to buy some tulips and daffodils!

    • Kristi
      Tuesday,March 20, 2018 / 6:31 pm

      Thanks so much Carol. Ah…Arizona sounds nice. 🙂 We haven’t had a whole lot of sun this winter so the fresh flowers and lightening up definitely helps. I think that no matter where you live it’s always nice when we can put the winter stuff away and lighten things up.

      I’m glad that I was able to inspire you to buy some tulips and daffodils. Happy Spring!

    Your sunroom is GORGEOUS! And I agree, the furry stool absolutely must stay! Love all of your fresh greens against the neutral, bright and airy space. Beautiful home and tour, Kristi!

      Thanks so much Rachael, I appreciate it! This room had a big change this past year and it’s been fun dressing it up for the different seasons. Thanks for stopping by to take the tour.
