Tour My Spring Decor Refresh

It’s always so refreshing to take down all of the holiday decor clutter and start with fresh decor. This year, my christmas tree was so dead that I had to take it down the day after Christmas and decided to pack up all of the holiday decorations along with it. It was nice to take the time to neatly put away everything (and even label the boxes!).

Since it’s still winter in Minnesota, I felt like I couldn’t come out with full-fledge spring decor. I stuck to more of a minimalist look grounded in white with a few hints of spring.

What I’m Loving: Old Fashioned Furniture

I have a soft spot in my heart for antique furniture. Back in the day, it was made so beautifully with quality materials, and it was made to last forever. Now days, a lot of furniture is made to be disposable and just doesn’t have the same beauty. I try to incorporate antique furniture into my home where I can– I refinished my great grandfather’s mahogany dresser, and it’s one of my favorite pieces in my home.

Fall Decor Refresh

This last week, I decided that I had enough of summer and was ready to update my decor to fall. Starbucks did launch the Pumpkin Spice Latte this week, so clearly I am not alone in my feelings.

I went with a “greener” fall look this season, adding in more faux greenery instead of the traditional branches and orange leaves. Since most of my decor is neutral to begin with, I just added in a few pumpkins and a cozy plaid throw. As we approach halloween and thanksgiving, I’ll layer in a few more pieces, but for now I love the subtle fall look.
