It all started with a trip to Target. That sentence has gotten me into trouble so many times before! My youngest and I went there to find bathing suits because they were on sale. And I made the mistake of venturing over to the home decor department. They had the prettiest pillows and covers at the best prices! Needless to say, I came home with more than bathing suits that day.

Our living room needed a little spring refresh and the inexpensive throw pillows and covers were the perfect way to do it. I love using pinks for decor in the spring. It’s such a fresh and happy color. Well, as long as it isn’t bubble gum pink. That’s not my style at all. I’m more like Shelby from “Steel Magnolias” and prefer blush and bashful. Don’t you love that movie?

I had already clipped several branches from our quince bush and have been enjoying them for a couple of weeks.

 The coral blooms are so pretty and perfect for spring decor.

I borrowed the vintage mirror from the guest room for something to hang on the wall behind the branches. And the throw came from the family room. The wood candle holders were on the hearth. So other than the pillows, nothing in here is new. I love shopping the house!

A couple of vintage books I picked up at a recent estate sale are sweet additions to the coffee table.

And some dried roses add to the soft, romantic vibe.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. The simplicity of the Quince branches in the vase with the mirror behind is so lovely. I have two Quince bushes and have never thought to cut branches for inside. I have a cranberry/taupe parlor with touches of pink. They would be perfect! I love your pillows from Target. I don't get there enough but when I do I always find something fabulous.

    1. Thanks, AnnMarie! Yes, definitely clip some of your branches and bring them inside to enjoy. They'll last for at least a couple of weeks and the color would be perfect for your entry. And I'm really enjoying the Target pillows. It's dangerous for my wallet any time I visit there. Have a great weekend! ~ Angie

  2. Your refresh is very pretty! I've never been much for pink, but it looks great at your house!

    1. Thanks, Brenda. I like it in small doses, especially in spring. Have a great weekend! ~ Angie

  3. Angie, there are so many things I love about your space I don't even know where to start. Like those candlesticks, those pillows, the old copy of Little Women (my all time favorite book) and that enamel pitcher. I love it all.

  4. I love that sofa with the white throw and those pretty pillows! Perfect for spring! You have such a lovely home.

  5. Gosh I love that flowering quince in front of the mirror! I can see why you are enjoying that! I love blush pink too. Beautiful home and decor!

  6. This is really a lovely combination of colors and textures. The room is fresh but peaceful too. Love it!

    Pinning and sharing.

  7. Your space looks amazing; peaceful and pretty! What color are the walls in the living room? Looks like it blends with many things. We're fixing up a home we bought and I'm struggling with paint colors…there are so many beautiful neutrals! Thanks and many blessings to you.

  8. Could you please tell us the paint and brand of paint for the walls and especially for the buffet/china cabinet. Thank you! It is beautiful.
