Modern Floral Touches For Spring
Updated: Mar 21
Hey friends! And welcome to back to another fun round of Seasonal Simplicity Spring Series! I'm so thrilled to be sharing my spring home tour with you! If you are visiting from Laura's home, welcome! So glad you stopped by my tour today! And if you are a regular visitor here, thank you so much for joining me! I'm absolutely delighted to be joining my friends on this spring home tour today - there is just so much inspiration! Make sure to scroll down to the very bottom of this post to check out everyone's take on decorating for spring!
Normally, I go all out when decorating for the seasons - but this spring I am craving calm. Although we have vaccines available, the world is still very much dealing with COVID 19. Certainly, decorating is not on everyone's priority list. So I wanted to share some easy tips on welcoming spring into our homes with some modern floral touches. My goal is to help create a peaceful environment so that we look to our homes as a place of comfort. I'll be focusing on two main areas of my home and the purpose this spring tour is to pare down and decorate simply. So grab a cup of tea or coffee and join me!
My great room gets a ton of use on the daily as it is our main living space. I always like to dress it up for the seasons, and this year, I wanted to make it bright and cheery.
I opted for a combination of greenery and bright pink/peach/white blooms for the spring. I didn't create any arrangements that were over the top - just a few pops of color to welcome the spring season.
You may notice that most of the time, I use white vases when arranging florals. I really love the contrast between the all white vessels and the colorful florals. It's always a tip I suggest to everyone when decorating for spring.
A few weeks ago, I shared this fun DIY on how to repurpose old vases with paint, baking soda and black pepper - you can find that post linked here. These fun vases remain on my shelf and I can see myself styling them each and every season. I also shared a few fun shelf styling tips last week which you can find linked here.
Since I styled the shelves with a pop of color, I wanted to keep the ottoman styling minimal with very little fuss. I opted for a few faux olive stems, a clear glass vase, votives and some books. I simply placed these all on a tray and called it done!
I've had many people on instagram (you can catch me @thisissimplicite) ask me about these new stools - they are just fabulous! They are from Room & Board and I just love the fun cowhide print with the X base. They are stylish, modern and functional and are such a great option if you are looking to add seating either in a living space, in a bedroom or even a nook. The quality is exceptional and I cannot wait to show them off once we are allowed to gather again! Here's a link to the stools.
Let's take one last view of the living room before we head on upstairs.
Regardless of the season, I usually keep things fairly simple in my bedroom. I see my bedroom as a retreat and too much decor can get in the way of rest and relaxation. I do love to change out the greenery in the vases that sit on my nightstands and add a few additional pillows. This year I kept things simple by adding faux eucalyptus to the vases on my nightstands and a few neutral pillows for a clean look.
