Our Living Room with a Few Spring Touches


I hope you all are having a lovely week! Today I wanted to share a few Easter/spring touches that we added to our living room. We've been working on quite a few other projects lately so we kept it pretty simple:





Because of the new gray tufted chairs our gray tufted ottoman just did go anymore in this room - a bit too much tufting for one little space.  I sent it back up to NH with Jason and will show you how it looks in it's new home at some point this summer! Or maybe even in late April. I moved our coffee table from the family room in here for about two weeks, but didn't love it. It was a little too rustic looking and I like it so much better in the family room. I few days after I took these pictures I ended up doing a bunch of rearranging in here, and I finally painted and waxed the legs on the chairs and will show you that soon. This is how it looked in here, though, for most of March. =)





Sorry - I should have painted the legs on the chairs BEFORE I took these pictures. Oh well, at least this is the last time I will have to give a disclaimer about the chair legs! They drive me crazy, though, looking at them in these pictures. =)



If you look on the right side of this picture you can see a tiny bit of our newest chalkboard that we will be introducing next week. It took forever, but I think it's my favorite one. I hope you all have a wonderful afternoon!

  3. So pretty!! I just love your house. Are the white flowers in the pictures real or silk? What kind of flower is it? Can't wait to see the painted chair legs and what you decided to do about the coffee table situation.

    1. They are real - I got them at Trader Joe's. I'm pretty sure they are ranunculus. I have loved them for years and whenever I see them I like to snatch them up! =)

  4. I love your blog so much...when I see that you have posted, it is the first email I open! I ordered your Irish print and love it...it is still hanging. It was wrapped so beautifully, too. The new one we can spy in this post will be a definite purchase, too. This time I must bite the bullet and finally try downloading and have the large size printed. (Unless you just want to send it to me, frame and all! :) ). Cynthia R

    1. Hi Pinky - they are real, but they are not ivy. They are jasmine and I purchased the plants at Trader Joe's almost two months ago. They have held up really well and I love them!

    2. How big is the jasmine vine pots they are planted in when you bought them? Also what is your secret, are they still in the original pots in the urns covered up with moss or what??? You make it look so good and easy!!! Also how do you water them?
      Thanks so much!!
      Sarah

    3. They were pretty small. And yes, I kept them in their original pots and just tucked them into the urn and added some moss around it to hide the original pot. I just water them with a cup. It's nice and easy!

  11. I am curious about the cream coloured eggs in the 3rd photograph. They look as though they are on an egg tree. Where do you think that I may purchase some? I do love your beautiful, inspiring blog. sincerely, Patricia at patricia@savage.ca

  12. LOVE! Excited to see your next chalkboard. I love them. If you are ever taking requests, I am looking for a chalkboard print with the words from "Turn your eyes upon Jesus"

    1. Yes - I am always looking for ideas! I have a pretty lengthy list but I love adding to it and don't do them in any particular order - it kind of depends what I am feeling inspired by at the moment. I will definitely add that to my list. We plan on having at least two new chalkboard prints each month (and hopefully three or four each month if possible!)

  20. So many sweet touches... birdcages are always welcomed, the potted urns on the mantle, and the large band of blue on the lampshade! All caught my eye!! What fun to always want to change things up a bit. I call it shopping in my own home! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you! It was a while ago so I'm not 100% positive, but I believe I purchased it at White Home Collections in Wilton, NH.
