Adding some Spring Colors In our Kitchen and Family Room

I've been wanting to add some of this seafoam color in here for quite a while now. I figured I would wait until after the holidays once I was ready for some cheerful spring-like touches. One of the things I love most about sticking with a neutral palette is that it is so easy to switch around a few pillows or accessories and get a new look. It obviously doesn't change things that much, but it does help me look around and feel like the promise of spring is on the horizon!

If you are new here, this is what this room looked like when we moved in this past summer:

  1. What was painted first, chair rail or wall? My husband is inquiring. We have a chair rail in our bedroom and we're thinking of painting the stained wood.

    1. Hi Sandy! We actually didn't paint the walls in this room, but in the other ones that had the chair rail in we always paint that and the trim first.

  2. Love the added touches with the seafoam color. Great color for spring. Your mantle is lovely as well.

  3. Wow, the before and after shots! I had no idea the room used to look like that. Incredible transformation. The touches of blue are great as well and do indeed remind us that spring is on its way.

  4. I'm in love with all things seafoam and light blue, too! Everything looks great! So pretty!

  5. Love the trim! Love the chairs - they look like Restoration Hardware, but Home Goods? Total score. Love your style.

  6. Just stunning. Love the simplicity of the color palette. It's so soft and soothing! ~Kerri

  7. Oh my word. I love this so much - - - everything!

  8. Your home is so beautiful...I always enjoy taking a walk through....thank you so much for sharing. --Marti

  9. Jennifer, I know you said you got your metal baskets at Joss and Main but do you have any idea if they will have them again?! I love them!

    1. Thanks! There's no way of knowing, but you can check on

  10. Everything looks great, congratulations. I love all your post, and your house looks always so beautiful. How is the girls doing? I miss the post about your family too.

    1. Thanks, Raquel! They are great! Growing like crazy. Thank you for asking!

  11. Just beautiful. Question: how tall are your ceilings? They look like 8' but I'm not quiet sure. Thanks for all the resources too.

  12. I love to decorate in a neutral palette and use accents to bring in pops of color too. It makes a room more soothing and is a lot less costly when you want to change things up! You are doing a great with your place!

  13. Love the touch of seafoam ... so pretty for spring! Your kitchen layout is similar to mine and I'm inspired to change a few things! Your home is beautiful!

  14. Jennifer, Are those galvanized baskets in your kitchen pretty sturdy? I was debating on purchasing them and wondered if they were flimsy or not. Thank!

    1. They seem to be relatively sturdy. I have been pleased with the quality!

  15. Are you happy with your ikea couch? We need a new one and I am contemplating ikea since our fan room is well lived in. What style is yours?
