We are still in boots, winter coats, and even had more snow so when the sun finally came out yesterday I felt energized and headed out to the nursery to get a few flowers! I had to be careful what I bought because very little will survive with the current temperatures. If you saw my instagram stories, I purchased yellow daffodils and primrose. These will get me by until we get some warmer weather.
Adding spring touches to your home: 5 easy steps
I’m fine with the cold winter weather through February and then I get antsy and spring fever hits. I feel the need to open and clean windows, declutter, and creat a light, bright coastal feel in our home. Freshly washed crisp white linens, warm woods, and plenty of flowers help keep our spirit bright as we transition to the season of spring.
- Change up your pillows
With the temperatures still freezing I will leave my wool throw for another few weeks. You hear this time and time again and it’s so true. Changing pillows is the least expensive way to update your living space. These pillows are from McGee & Co. I like the coastal vibe they give my room. I also ordered this pillow and can’t wait to receive it!
2. Add warm woods
I ordered this console from Target and it’s been a great piece to show flowers and store odds and ends that end up on my counter. We also have a new coffee table coming next month and I can’t wait to share it! I’m loving the cozy, coastal feel that natural wood brings.
3. Freshen up your table with a new runner and vase
Hydrangea are so beautiful, yes? A big bouquet of white hydrangea gets me every time. They make a statement on our RH farmhouse table sitting on top of a delicate lace runner and wood cheese board.
4. Add baskets and bowls filled with lemons
I always have lemons around and keep them in wooden bowls on the counter. The bright yellow makes me smile and reminds me to add the juice of a lemon to my tea, water, or on top of fresh greens, poultry, fish, veggies, and the like.
5, Flowers and potted plants
I found ranunculus at my local nursery and bought a few to plant indoors. Hopefully they will be okay by my kitchen window until I can plant them outdoors. Lemons pilled up in a wood bowl a feeling of sunshine indoors. They smell so good! Truth be told, even as snow flakes continue fall outside, I am content to simply enjoy a little spring inside.
