Welcome to A Very Colorful Life Spring home tours with simple decorating ideas to add pops of color that you can try now.
Do you love to search for inspiration for seasonal decor but tired of seeing the same neutral-farmhouse or traditional ideas? (Hint, hint, I’m talking to you Pinterest.) Well, look no further my friend! I’m joining 14 other eclectic and colorful bloggers to share Spring home tours full of unique and charming ideas that will infuse your home with color.
First a huge thank you to Dimples and Tangles and Jeweled Interiors for hosting and organizing this round up of “It’s A Colorful Life Home Tour.” If you are coming from Monica’s gorgeous spring home, welcome. Her signature chinoiserie-chic style continues to make feel inspired to surround myself with all of the pretty things. *Scroll to the bottom of the post to see all participating bloggers.
Colorful Spring Home Decor
Let’s start at the foyer, shall we? We’ve been in this house six months now and I’ve transformed our daughter’s bedroom and the small master bathroom. But I am happy with how our main living areas are shaping up. We have a single-story ranch-style home so you see everything as soon as you walk in. Here is an elegant and eclectic spring wreath I made recently repurposing items from my crafting stash for A Very Global Easter series.
And then you are in the open concept living-dining rooms and kitchen.
Since this tour is all about color, I painted our brown mantel to a blue-black and rearranged the bookcase with colorful books color-coded instead of its usual neutral styling.
Some fresh purple tulips steal the show on our coffee table. I recently added decorative rock grapes that were my grandmothers and brass cranes from my grandfather. Our home is full of sentimental items!
Add a no fuss flower arrangement with tulips or daffodils.
I’m so excited to have a real fireplace again and couldn’t wait to style it for Spring. I placed our faux mantel from our Japanese house in from and added so other global touches. But my favorite is the pop of green with a Boston fern inside a Japanese bowl.
Add a plant in a pretty container to fill an empty hearth.
Most of our decor is from living in Japan and traveling in Asia. I’ve also acquired art and furniture from my grandparents that I love having close by. A corner in our living room received a spring refresh with an ink painting of the New York skyline and a mounted skull from Texas hill country.
Behind the sofa is a small dining area and kitchen with a small wall to the left. It’s the perfect size for our bar cart and a colorful painting I found at an estate sale with my grandpa. Faux florals and more blue and white pieces emphasize the interesting color palette.
Since the living and dining areas on next on my to-do list for house projects, I decided to play around with the dining furniture arrangement to see what works best. We are currently trying a banquette style eating area and so far love it. There is still plenty of room to set up folding tables (with pretty linens off course) in our living room for large dinner parties!
The space is full of FB marketplace and thrifted finds. I love the combo of hot pink, blue and white, and green patterns for spring! The chinoiserie pieces also tie into the bar cart vignette and a decorating accessories in the living room.
I mentioned our small bathroom makeover earlier and I’ve already made changes. I decided to move a large floral painting by my aunt from the living room to above the toilet and LOVE it. It will definitely stay here for a while. The jewel tones are stunning. You can find out how I changed our bathroom for under $150 with a small bathroom makeover on a budget.
Rearrange artwork to highlight spring colors and themes.
The last space I wanted to share is our daughter’s room because it’s my absolute favorite room I’ve ever done. I completed it for the New Year New Room Challenge but added a couple of bunnies and a DIY tassel basket with some easter eggs for spring. I would use the peachy pink and mint green color palette anywhere. It has such a soothing feeling.
