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?

A foyer with white walls and a beautiful walnut cabinet is decorated with a Spring vignette.  A money plant is in a small white pot with a large brass crane and lucite sculpture sitting in a bonsai planter.  A vintage tin Asian lamp is on the other side of the cabinet.  Neutral art in a small gallery wall hangs above.  To the left are two-toned blue and green walls.
An Eclectic Spring Vignette

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.

Spring Foyer Decorating

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.

A collection of dried flower hangings and a brass feather sconce is on a white wall.
Dried Floral Hangings

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.

A beautiful balance of two-toned hallway walls in blue and green with a large Japanese screen and a white foyer wall with ink and watercolor landscapes gallery wall above a walnut cabinet.
Two-toned Walls in Spring Colors

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.

Living Room with Jewel Tones for Spring

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.

A beautiful sage green velvet sofa is styled with purple and floral pillows with purple flowers and books on a white and chrome coffee table.  White walls and a white and cane cabinet are behind the sofa to create a lovely a Spring vignette.
Green and Purple Spring Vignette Styling

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!

Cozy and Eclectic Traditional Spring 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 brass peacock and white built in shelves with colorful books and decor complete the wall with a white washed wood and chrome coffee table styled with books, flowers, and brass cranes.

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!

A large painting with chartreuse green and dark blue birds is striking on a white wall.  French doors showing the office is next to the desk with a zz plant in a basket planter on a black Asian stand.

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.

White french doors with brass knobs and hanging brass bells show a colorful green office with bird wallpaper.  Dark blue velvet chair, garden stool, and plant are in the foreground.

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!

A master bedroom with a grey anthropologie landscape mural on the wall and a dried fern wreath hanging above a green velvet headboard wtih white bedding, white side tables and lamps, and dark blue velvet throw pillows. A light blue upholstered modern bench is at the foot of the bed on a traditional rug. To the left is a bold green barn door with gold hardware and pull leading to the ensuite bathroom.

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.

A green barn door with a gold pull looks stunning with a pop of blue in the threshold leading to the master ensuite bathroom with dark green floral wallpaper.  A neutral landscape mural is on the bedroom side with white walls and furniture and eclectic decorating.

White Bedroom Walls with Pops of Color

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.

Green Floral Bathroom

I placed a faux plant in a pink planter on the back of the toilet and hung cactus art on the wall for Spring!
