I don’t know about where you live, but here in Tennessee we’ve had a long and unusually cold winter. Not that I mind too much since I’m at the age where I have hot flashes, but I’m so ready for spring weather and flowers. Are you over the dreary winter weather too?
Today I’m joining a spring home tour with 28 of my uber talented blogging friends. We’re all sharing ideas for decorating your home for the spring season. The tour is hosted by Jenna at Wife in Progress, so be sure to hop over and see her beautiful home. You can see her spring tour HERE. And you can visit all of the tours at the bottom of the post.
If you’re visiting here for the first time as part of the tour, you can take a tour of our home HERE.
Our entry and living room mantel are the first things you see when you enter our home, and that’s what I’m sharing today. Check back next week for a spring tablescape.
Spring Living Room Decor
It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind, right? (say yes) You might recall that I shared some spring mantel decorations a few weeks ago featuring blush pinks (go HERE to see that version).
Well, guess what. I changed my mind, lol.
I’ve been seeing vintage botanicals everywhere the past few months and decided to make some of my own. Vintage floral illustrations have always been a favorite of mine so that’s what I made, 8 to be exact.
Roses and lilacs and narcissus, oh my. I even put on my DIY cap and made a simple frame for 3 of them and hung them up over the mantel. Stay tuned for a tutorial next week. (You can sign up for my newsletter below if you want it sent to your inbox.)
Update: You can see how I made these simple frames HERE.
The background of the botanicals have some beautiful vintage handwriting. It looks like a work of art. Don’t you wish people still took pride in their penmanship?
I liked the botanicals so much that I had a pillow cover made in one of them. If you’re interested, they’re available over in my shop in all 8 designs HERE.
I’ll be posting a tutorial for how I made the minimalist frames soon. But in the meantime, I’m offering these 3 botanicals for free. The details of how to get them are at the bottom of the post.
Over on other side of the living room facing the fireplace, a few blush colored pillows on the sofa are the perfect accent to my vintage hooked pink rug. I never thought I would like pink, but here I am with pink accents all over this room. Never say never, amiright?
One of the few things blooming in the yard right now is our Lenten roses. They’re so pretty and delicate. I had to bring some inside and pop them into a pretty pitcher.
A few more clippings are on a three tiered tray in front of the vintage doctor’s office window. It’s one of my all-time favorite finds.
The little vintage-inspired mason jars have flower frog lids and are a recent favorite find. They’re perfect for branch clippings and flowers from the yard or grocery store.
A vintage “Little Women” book leaned against one of my marble lamps adds another dash of soft pink, along with the faux rose.
Spring Entry Decor
So I’m officially obsessed with these botanicals. Did you notice? I put the hyacinth one in a little flower frog spike thing to hold it upright. And that mini mason jar…well, it’s just so adorable. The little grape hyacinths look like they were made to go in it.
A vintage Easter postcard is another fun way to add some spring touches. This one has pretty shades of blue and green.
And even though it’s not lavender season I had to add some to the entry. The vibrant purple is so pretty and they smell so good.
The little blue stool is a great place to sit and take off our shoes at the end of the day.
