How to Style a Spring Vignette and Seasonal Home Tour
Welcome to A Stroll Thru Life’s annual Spring Home Tour blog hop. I have so much fun participating in this series and am excited to share with you home updates and Spring decor.
If you are coming from Whispering Pines Homestead, welcome. I adore Anita’s home style which happens to also be colorful and maximalist but in a beautiful traditional way. She is a fellow musician and military veteran so we have a lot in common.
Scroll down to the end of this article to see the full lineup of home tours this week.
I recently completed a major makeover in our hallways which you see right away in the foyer so let’s start here, shall we?
If you are new here, howdy! I’m a retired military spouse who moved back to Texas after being gone for 19 years. I perfected the art of rental decorating and overcoming challenges in small spaces for over fifteen years but now am tackling homeownership with a new set of challenges! Our family of four lived in some of the most beautiful coastal towns in the US and Japan which have influenced my colorful and global style with DIYs and furnishings in our one-story 60’s ranch-style home in Fort Worth.
Spring Vignette #1
The foyer chest belonged to my grandmother so it is a special piece of furniture. I styled it with estate sale finds and a money plant. A tin Asian lamp on one side balances out the plant, a lucite sculpture, and a large crane. The tray they are in is actually a planter.
There are two original paintings, a framed signed playbill by Cole Porter, and a few fun dried florals I found recently at a garage sale.
Almost every flat surface whether it is a table or wall I think about decorating in grids or columns and using odd numbers. You’ll notice the two sides on the cabinet and then two rows of art evenly spaced on the walls.
To the left of the foyer table are my green and blue hallways. The perfect color scheme for Spring! You can find all of the details from molding, two-toned walls, and art in this article. But here’s one more quick view below.
The brass knobs in this tour were gifted from Signature Hardware and they add such a beautiful detail to our home, I’m still pinching myself. The flush light in the hallway is also from Signature Hardware.
Just to the right of the foyer table is the actual entry featuring a matching brass doorknob gifted from Signature Hardware that my husband just installed last weekend on the front door.
A simple seasonal setting with a bar cart, spider plant in a chinoiserie planter, and picnic basket for storage underneath was all the entry needed for a Spring update. When you use a lot of decorating items as I do, it’s nice to have a few bigger pieces for a visually quieter area.
Spring Vignette #2
Our living areas are an open concept in a small single-story ranch home so really you can see most of it as soon as you walk in.
My daughter brought me home flowers a few days ago and I used them as a starting point for Spring decorating in the living room. They look really pretty with the teal and pink velvet curtains in the front room. I pulled out a pair of purple pillow covers and a floral pillow to change up the sofa.
The coffee table is divided into four quadrants with decorative books. I used the flowers and a pair of brass cranes on two stacks to add height and kept the other two simple with a decorative box to hide remotes and a stone apple on a tea light candle holder, and brass stand. Layering is key in decorating!
I finally took down my Christmas garland which kept the living room cozy during winter and replaced it with a matching set of candlesticks and stone decorative eggs.
A small sofa table features a small Spring setting with global easter eggs in a crystal basket, a jewelry box egg, and a glass bunny.
Spring Vignette #3
Behind the sofa are an art deco desk and a striking yellow and bluebird painting. I didn’t put much thought into the decor on the desk except for the tall candlesticks on the right. The left small chest holds teaching supplies for when I teach piano lessons and the items in the middle just looked like a curated collection of foliage so I left it!
I always think about spaces around furniture when I’m decorating. If a small stool and/or plant will fit, I do it! Also, enjoy more updated gorgeous brass knobs on my office door. It’s like jewelry for the home.
I can’t wait to share more of my Spring decor next week in another home tour but I’m dying to show you our bedroom. We finally finished the door threshold, barn door, and new Signature Hardware pull on the door in our master bedroom and it looks perfect for Spring!
The bedroom looks almost the same as last year’s summer home tour but I switched rugs with the piano studio. And now, of course, there’s a pop of blue and green to the small ensuite bathroom.
I used the same green that is in our hallway so the room feels cohesive with the doors open! And doesn’t the barn door hardware look beautiful?
It is really nice having a handle after months of the bathroom being done last Fall for the One Room Challenge.
I placed a faux plant in a pink planter on the back of the toilet and hung cactus art on the wall for Spring!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Head over to The Stonybrook House for the next Spring home tour and I’ll see you there.
