Spring Tour

Spring Home Tour, Log Home Using Blues Greens and a Pop of YellowI’ve made a few early Spring changes to our home by incorporating new colors. I needed something new to wash away the memories of Winter and the easiest way to do it is by changing the throw pillow colors.

I love to see all the fresh green grass, the flowers pushing up out of the ground, and trees starting to leaf out. 

Green LanternI dug into my home decor stash and looked for anything green and then took the rest of my inspiration colors from the pillow cover that has green, blues, and turquoise in it. Back to the stash to dig up anything in those colors to add to the mix. Once I rounded them all up I decided I needed a color that would pop.

Pillow Fabrics in Green, Gray, Blue and YellowI actually donated them all to our local Hospice store. I decided they were taking up to much room, and I’m sticking t0 the neutral colors so it was time to let them go. I also like that it freed up a lot of room in my home decor closet.

I swapped the lamps from our bedroom with the ones in the living room so now we have the blue downstairs and the white in the master.

I purchased fabric to make navy and white buffalo check curtains but I decided I still like the gray for Spring, so I may make them to use for Summer. No matter how hard I try and stay away, buffalo check always calls my name.

The one I was using was too small for the space and I’ve been on the hunt for a larger, neutral one but hadn’t found one in my price range until recently. It’s from the Country Living line and I feel like I hit the jackpot with it.

Well the one I wanted was on a table and had several others stacked on top of it, so I started working my way down the pile trying to get to the one I wanted when an employee noticed what I was trying to do.

I said, yep that’s the one I want so he took it to the front of the store, rolled it up, and secured it with shrink wrap for the ride home.

Area Rug In Gray From Country LivingI was so excited I paid $39 for an 8X10 area rug. Now I wish I’d have found another one that I like just to have as a back up. The good part about it is I won’t mind getting rid of it when I get tired of it since it wasn’t a large amount of money spent.

    It all looks really pretty. Where do you find slipcovers. I have a sofa that I want a neutral cover for but the ones at target are just too stretchy. Thanks for your help.

    1. Debbie, My slipcovers are made just for the furniture line I have. I love them, but I had them in every color they made. It was time to downsize for sure.

  4. Dawn, I am loving your new rug, too! It really grounds your space and complements all the pretty spring colors you are using! I am yearning to change up some things around here. Tried to change out the small rug in front of the fireplace but Lucy, our dog, had a fit about her rug! So I put it back! Your pooch seems to have taken to your new rug easily!
