Inspiring Spring Decor

This week I had the privilege of participating in not one, but two spring home tours.

My dear friends, Marty of A Stroll Thru Life and Katie of Let’s Add Sprinkles, both hosted truly wonderful tours filled to the brim with delicious spring décor inspiration.

Knowing that many of you are short on time I’ve gathered just a few of my favorite spaces from the tours to share with you.

Debbie’s dining room had me at hello. You can see her entire tour at Refresh Restyle.

Cristina of Remodelando la Casa creates amazing spaces with her own mad skills. You must see her kitchen and home office space.

Laura’s beautiful porch at Duke Manor Farm is what my own back patio aspires to be when it grows up.

Rhoda’s living room at Southern Hospitality shows that a lovely space can be created by using great décor store finds and wonderful DIY.

This bathroom, by Z Design At Home, rings all my bells and whistles.

Kim of Sand and Sisal paired blue and yellow, a favorite color combo of mine, in her happy spring tour.

Carol of Art and Sand has created a truly enchanted garden. Her sweet little she shed features a happy red door.

Of course I am in “flooring mode” as we prepare to redo the kitchen here at Storybook Cottage and was truly smitten by Brooke’s selection at Nesting With Grace.

Here are some Easter themed bits of bliss.

My friend Debra of Common Ground is a master at creating seasonal vignettes. I now find myself looking for a large bunny to place in my own wagon.

Jann of Have A Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson presented an Easter Wonderland tablescape that truly made me smile.

The super talented Jane of Cottage at the Crossroads created this darling chalkboard scene in her kitchen and generously provided the pattern for the burlap bunnies.

I’d like to thank everyone who left such kind comments on both of my spring home tours.

You can view Part I HERE and Part II HERE.

I am so very glad that so many of you enjoyed my cabinet of curiosities. I always wonder if my wild ideas will be well received.

Is it crazy that I’m already dreaming of what I can fill the cabinet with for summer?

I'm enjoying visiting the tour blogs, little by little.

Here in MA we'd say that shells, sand dollars and starfish as well as flowers would make a wonderful summer theme for a cabinet of curiousness.

Thanks so much for the feature and the kind words, Laura! I haven't finished all my visiting yet, either, but there is so much that deserves to be seen and shared!

Art and Sand said...

You are so sweet to feature me and thanks for the heads up. We are in Sacramento helping our pregnant daughter settle into their first house. I brought my computer, but have had little time to check my emails with all the sewing, painting and fluffing Steve and I have been doing because her belly is getting in the way.

Great overview of the tours, Laura. It's been such a fun week. I've enjoyed each one and have loads of inspiration on my mind. Have a great weekend!
