Welcome to my Spring Living Room! This year I decided to not do a Spring Home Tour. (You can find all of my past home tours here.) Since I haven’t made many changes around here, I figured I’d hold off on another tour until summer.
However, it’s been a while since I showed you around, so I thought it’d be a good idea to give you a couple room tours leading up to the official summer home tour. Sound good?
Let’s start with the living room. (As always, all of my home’s paint colors can be found here.)
As I said, not a whole lot has changed. Most of the changes are accessory swaps from last fall. As I mentioned during my Holiday Home Tour, I’m trying to incorporate more black accents in this room to tone down the colors. When I found these graphic striped vases, I knew they would look perfect on my mantel. Throw in a gold vase (from my buddy Nate’s collection) and some flowering twigs, and I was in business.
Another big change in this space was replacing my yellow pattern poufs with these gray cable knit ones. I picked them up this past winter, and they are working great in this space. I also like them because they’re a bit sturdier than the previous ones.
Speaking of cushions, I kept the throw pillows the same. I found a pair of gray pillows for a steal at HomeGoods this past winter. And although you wouldn’t think gray pillows would work on a gray sofa, they really do. I love that they add comfort and volume without too much pattern.
I’m also kind of obsessed with this big gold wishbone my mom bought for me. I believe she found it at Boscov’s, which is a department store similar to Macy’s.
Naturally, because it’s spring, I had to tuck in a few fresh flowers here and there Also, since I’m cheap, I picked them up at the grocery store for next to nothing. (Check out this post for my Grocery Store Flowers styling tips.)
Sidenote: See that bowl with the black interior? Yeah, that used to be filled with chocolates. Now it’s just filled with regret.
Another thing I wanted to mention is my rug. MANY of you ask about it here and on social media. I purchased it from CB2 several years ago, and unfortunately they no longer sell it. However, I did notice that West Elm (here and here) and Rugs USA (here) released a few that are very similar in style. The pattern is almost the same; only the coloring is different. These would be great options if you’re looking for something similar.
Also, in case you missed it, I gave my fireplace a quick refresh with paint. I can’t believe what a difference it made. I’m still loving the change, and it’s held up wonderfully. You can read more about that here.
That’s about it. I hope you enjoyed this little Spring Living Room update. With that, Kevin (my moose) and I are signing off for the day. It’s in the mid-70s here in Central PA, and we’re desperate for some sun.
Have a happy and sunny week!
