Hi friends and welcome to a new week! It’s almost officially Spring now and I know we are all glad about that fact. There is just something so fresh and new about spring. The promise of flowers, warmth, and outdoor living is on our minds these days and I am sure feeling the Spring fever myself. I get excited about Spring every year!
Today, I’m joining a big group of talented bloggers on a Spring home tour and we are all sharing our homes all decked out for Spring with all of you. Marty with A Stroll Thru Life is our hostess for this tour and she always puts together a great group of ladies for this.
If you’re stopping by from Tammy at Pink Peppermint Design, welcome! Tammy has such a beautiful home that she has DIY’d to perfection.
If you’re new to my blog, I’m so glad you stopped by. My husband, Mark and I, have been in our house going on 2 years this summer. We bought the house and have been working on updating it to our tastes ever since. It has great bones and a good floor plan for us, it was just builder’s boring when we bought it.
Come on in and we’ll look around the entry way, living room and dining room. I’ll be sharing the family room and kitchen next week on a spring tour.
I made this front door pocket spring flower arrangement last year, so just brought it back out this year as well. I love the fresh spring greens this time of year.
Our small living room is to the right and it looks pretty much the same as always, but added tulips bring a fresh spring touch in there. We added that board and batten after we moved in.
I love these brightly colored pillows in the living room too. All the trim around the doorway you see as well as the beadboard wainscot in the dining room was done by my husband after we moved in. It’s come a long ways in the almost 2 years we’ve been here.
Orange and blue totally complement each other, so these tulips were such a nice addition to this space.
The coffee table with books and baubles.
These orange tulips go so well with my Chaing Mai pillow covers.
This little space is small, but it packs a lot of style with this gallery wall of vintage art that I’ve collected.
I enjoyed finding every one of these along the years. I love real plants and have them all over the house.
Next door is our dining room in blue and white, my favorite color combination these days. Our house is filled with all shades of blue, from navy, to teal, turquoise, and aqua. I love them all!
I set the table with my blue and white plates and my green Bordallo bunny plates that I’ve had for many years. They go so well together too and it just seems fitting to bring out the bunnies for Spring and Easter.
Love these shades of blue and white and green!
More orange tulips with some other florals make a great looking centerpiece for the table. There’s nothing better than fresh flowers this time of year to bring that spring feeling inside.
At the bottom of the vase, I added some small white bunnies I’ve had for a long time too along with pretty little faux eggs. It’s that time of year!
I enjoy bringing out the pretty dishes for these occasions and really bringing our dining room to life.
On the buffet, part of my blue and white collection looks at home there. If you haven’t noticed yet, I do love blue and white pottery and have quite the collection now!
Another shot of that floral centerpiece, I just love how it came out with all grocery store flowers.
Looking back to the living room.
And a look at the dishes and tablescape.
These dishes are so fun!
I always love this mix of colors, blue and green are so pretty together.
The foyer table gets a fresh spring green look too.
I have fun with this spot too and enjoy changing it out for the seasons.
I got these lanterns from Pottery Barn and used them during Christmas and they fit in so well here too.
That little blue and white bowl is a Goodwill find. That’s an original oil painting that I bought last year and love the colors in it, Charlotte Terrell is the artist. Boxwood topiaries are from Homegoods.
This dough bowl is fun to change out too and this spring green moss, along with faux limes, a twig bird and twig birdsnest was a fun addition. All things green!
That round rattan mirror was a vintage find from thrifting in Florida a couple of years ago. I love that thing!
Down below is a blue and white pot with a real plant, and this cute bunny which came from Soft Surroundings and a pretty piece of white coral.
Here are a few things below that are in my home and some very similar items. The light fixture and buffet lamps from the dining room as well as the rug, Hooker entry table are included below (affiliate links included):
If you missed my recent modern vintage laundry room renovation, check it out too! It’s perpetually spring in my laundry space and I love it so much!
And that’s a Spring tour of those areas in our house. I hope you enjoyed and got some spring inspiration for your house too. This is always such an energizing time of year, getting ready for summer months and more time outdoors. I’ve been working on our deck space getting it ready to use again and I can’t wait to get out there again soon.
Next on the tour is Brooke with Nesting with Grace. She has such a charming home and I know you’ll be get so many ideas stopping by her home too!

Christy @ Our Southern Home says
I adore your colorful home! So many great ideas with your layering. I think I’d do laundry everyday if my laundry room looked like yours!

Absolutely gorgeous, Rhoda!! You and Mark have worked so hard on your home and it has paid off for sure. 🙂
