Welcome spring and welcome to all of you! I’m excited to be showing my spring home this week and next so I hope you enjoy what I’m sharing this year. It’s always fun to add some spring touches to my foyer and living room console table, so that’s what I’m sharing today, as well as a peek at other parts of my home.
I’m joining a group of bloggers as well hosted by Marty with A Stroll Thru Life. It gives us all some great inspiration as we are decorating our own homes, so hope you enjoy the tours. They started on Monday so be sure and go back and visit as many as you can.
If you’re coming by from Monica Wants It and her colorful home, welcome! I’m also a color lover myself and hope you enjoy your visit! Please sign up for my emails so you don’t miss a thing.
We’re getting lots of sunshine lately and it makes me so happy to see the sun pouring in our foyer and entry hall.

We’ll start in the living room. I changed out the blue wool rug in here for a more spring and summer look and got out a seagrass rug I’ve had for a long while. Seagrass is great for added texture and lightening things up and I love the change for summer.
You can find my seagrass rug here, it’s 8×8′ and fits in a lot of small spaces including my small dining room. It was perfect with my round table.
The living room is on the small but cozy side and I love it with Plantation shutters and casual elegant style.
My hubby, Mark found that big cabinet years ago at Haverty’s and I always get asked about it. We didn’t paint it, it came that color and it’s a great focal point in the room.
As you can see, I love blue and white and you’ll see lots of that around my house.
I added a pretty spring vignette on my brass and glass coffee table with faux greenery in a blue and white vase.
A bunny under glass is a great way to welcome spring.
Looking to the foyer, you can see the box molding project Mark did before Christmas. We are very proud of this one, it sure adds so much architectural interest to our home.
I love using faux greenery too and most of these from Afloral are very realistic and reasonable too. You can find the eucalyptus here on these links.
I have lots of real plants too but sometimes it’s great to go faux for long lasting blooms that you can use over and over.
Yep, I’m definitely a color lover. So many people ask me the color in this room and it’s Spellbound by Ben Moore. I color matched it to the grasscloth wallpaper in my dining room and also one wall in the living room has wallpaper too.
Moving on to the foyer with more blue and white on the foyer table. I pulled out most of my blue and white pottery pieces and grouped them here.
Blue and white makes a nice impact for spring and goes so well with greens. The foyer table is by Hooker and you can find it here, if interested. That bamboo mirror is a vintage find.
I made these decoupage eggs last year and love them!
Here’s a how to decoupage Easter eggs if you want to try these yourself.
These dried magnolia leaves were left over from Christmas and i couldn’t bare to throw them out, they still look so pretty.
I’ll be sharing my dining room Easter table next week, but here’s a sneak peek. Those pretty pink blossoms are also from AFloral and linked above.
I got these faux flowers from several sources, These cherry blossom stems are similar to the ones I have from Michaels and add a lot to faux arrangements. Those fluffy pink flowers in the front are from Magnolia in Waco.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my spring home so far. I have a few more spaces to share coming up later.
Don’t miss the next stop on the tour, Pink Peppermint Design. Tammy’s home is always so lovely, I know you’ll love it. And please take the time to visit as many of these links as you can, you are sure to be inspired by all the talent in blogland.

Your home looks so beautiful- Love how all of the blue in the entry complements the blue walls in the other room. And I really love that little vintage art gallery wall!!!
Laura Ingalls Gunn says
So many lovely things to look at. I adore your collection of blue and white pottery. So happy to be on tour with you!
Jeanie Eves says
Happy spring Rhoda & Mark! Thank you for sharing your projects and details of decorating your beautiful house. I love each and every post! I look forward to seeing your Easter table Rhoda. Stay safe, continue to be well. 🦋🌞💐
Good morning Rhoda! What a sunny, cheerful spot to greet the day. I especially love your pink cherry blossoms! And the Tiffany blue box on the coffee table is so pretty. Your decoupaged egg project gave me a much needed, fun diversion during the early days of the pandemic; I ended up making a dozen each for my sister and me!
Oh I’m so glad you tried them, they are such an easy project.
I love how you’ve decorated for spring with blue and white. That collection in your hallway is stunning. I also love that cupboard in your lounge, what a lucky find that was! Thanks for the tour!
Thank you Jayne, the blue and white collection is so fun. Thanks for stopping by!
Rhoda, you and Mark have turned your builder-grade home into a custom showplace. I love that entry wall and all the added moldings you’ve added all over the house. Your decor is so beautiful set against such a lovely backdrop. Thanks so much for joining the tour again this season, your home is a true delight to see.
Thank you, Marty it’s always fun to join your tours!
Rhoda, I always love seeing your beautiful home and all the gorgeous color you incorporate! Your blue and white gets me every time – you have such a welcoming home! Happy Spring!
Thanks so much Tamara!

Always love your tours and I’m a big fan of blue and white. Love those eggs and am so in love with your bonsai.
Rhoda, your home gets lovelier each season. I can tell how much love you and Mark have poured into it, it is such a happy space! The blues and whites are so pretty. I hope you have a great spring!
Susan Jones says
Rhoda please share where you got the lamp on your foyer table. It’s beautiful.
HI, Susan, that lamp is beautiful and came from Couture Lamps. I am friends with the owner on Instagram and she gifted me that lamp. They do have them online at the Couture website.
MARY-ANN (FROM CANADA!) says
Rhoda, your Spring living room and foyer are so pretty with all your special Spring touches! All your blue and white looks beautiful. Those chinoiserie eggs are lovely, too! You encouraged me to make some last year and I love the 12 that I made. I’m going to get busy and make some for family and friends. They are so pretty and everyone who sees them asks where I bought them!
Hope your little Daisy is doing well and not getting into too much mischief! She is just the cutest little dog! A little dog just melts your heart! Spoil her lots! Enjoy!
Tammy Mitchell says
What a gorgeous tour Rhoda! Blue is my absolute favorite, so I always love seeing how you decorate your home. That new woodwork is stunning! Always so fun to share a tour with you. Have a wonderful day!
Christy Little says
I am loving all your touches of blue and white! And your vintage gallery wall is gorgeous!
Jo-Anna Rooney says
You have such a beautiful home Rhoda! I love all the blue you’ve decorated with…it’s so classy and gorgeous!
Thank you so much, Jo-Anna!
Gorgeous! Do you have sourcing for the round marble tray in the living room?
– Jan Taylor
HI, Jan, that one is from Target, but here’s one from World Market that looks the same.
