Earlier this week, I wrote about how I love refreshing my space for the new year. It’s a little sad to take all of the holiday decorations down, but I also love when my house feels so clean and open again! Although I don’t go into full spring decor, I do love bringing in lighter colors and a little bit of greenery to brighten everything up.
In order to balance out the more spring-forward pieces, I try to incorporate a lot white as a neutral. I also still love the look of terra-cotta and might add a few more pieces once my January spending freeze is over!

We have officially kicked off the bathroom remodel! When I first bought my house, I did a little freshening up of my bathroom, but the time has come for a bigger overhaul. The parts of the bathroom that really need to be redone are the vanity, mirror, and floor.
The vanity and mirror were there when I bought my house and have seen better days. The mirror is made out of laminate particle board, which just doesn’t wear well in a bathroom. I suspect the vanity is original to the house and the wood is pretty gross and the top is a yellowed stone. I put in a new floor the first time I did my bathroom, but I just went with a basic tan tile. It’s not the worst look, but I would like something a little nicer and updated.
One of the easiest ways to decorate a room is to base it all in white. It’s the simplest color choice you will ever make! White is timeless and really easy to style with other neutrals or pops of color. The color also looks beautiful with natural wood tones, especially wood flooring. I don’t have any all white rooms in my house, but some of these inspiration images have me rethinking my color palette!
By the end of August, I am always so excited to start putting out my fall decor. I pretend to have an excuse to decorate so early so that I can take photos for my blog, but I would probably do it at the same time regardless of the blog. It’s just fun to refresh things and know that change is coming!
I’m not totally happy with the decor and I think that I need to add a few pieces. I try to be really intentional when shopping for decor these days, so that I don’t end up with a ton of stuff that I never use. Now that I have the spaces set, it’s easier to plan just where I need to add a few things. Right now I’m thinking that I need a little something more around the fireplace and some more fall colored textiles for the dining table and in the living room. I’ll keep y’all updated with what I find!
