A Look Around Our Home | Spring

As we're preparing for the Easter weekend, I thought I'd take you on a little Spring tour of our house.  I love spring, but I feel like the weather has been so unpredictable this year.  Or is it every year and we just forget?  Where are the sunny, but damp 55 degree days for piddling in the yard?!  I'm hoping April is full of them.  I've been searching for new patio furniture, too, in full outdoor mode.  For now, I'll take you around inside - while I wait to be working in the garden.

I designed the Natural Check Pillow Collection completely for this room.  You know I love tone-on-tone so much.  I find it soothing and classic.  I love that the the small check pattern is subtle, but definitely complimentary to the oatmeal linen sofa.  They really freshen and lighten the sofa (and the room) for spring.  

Now, when I look at this room, I see the beautiful Dutch Ship Oil Painting and the plush, comfy sofa that sort of blends with the walls and area rug seem work perfectly together - instead of competing with each other.

This is our more formal room, so I've replaced our end tables with antiques.  I've been working on collecting them for the last two years - carefully watching each piece at local antique stores and saving until I could no longer resist them.   I love the warmth and authencity they bring to the room.  They were investment pieces, but they will never go out of style, and I love them so much that I know I will always find a home for them our homes.

This chest was actually my Christmas gift from Mike this year.  It is where we are storing our Christmas Ornaments and special decorations.  I love that they no longer have to live in the basement.  I'll share more about how I'm storing them closer to the holidays.

The antique writing desk has barley twist legs, similar to the side tables in our bedroom.  I watched this table for 3+ years.  When I went to visit it, I couldn't find it.  I panicked and thought someone had purchased it.  When I discovered it was just moved, I bought it on the spot.  #FOMO. 

Both were purchased at Rooms That Bloom here in Kansas City.  

Natural Check Pillows, $38-46

Mr. Darcy doesn't seem disturbed by my photos.

I've loved changing this sideboard each season.  It was another piece I hunted and saved for since we moved into our home.  I found it on 1st dibs.

The kitchen.  I never get tired of this view.

 It has been so fun to watch these bulb grow - just like paper whites, I forced daffodils, hyacinth and tulips indoor this year.

I went with the Natural Check in our formal room and a little more fun in the hearth room with the Spa Check with little touches of the Natural for warmth.  It is so fresh and clean - I'm absolutely obsessed with how they turned out.

 Spring light.
