Today there are five of us sharing our homes:I find myself decluttering every spring, so my spring home tour is very simple with touches of greenery. My tour begins in our dining room. I designed a dining room for the Indianapolis Home Show this year, so several pieces are from the display. The nameplates and chalk art was created by my crazy talented friend Cara of Word for Word Chalk Art. The outside chairs are IKEA chairs that were dressed up with handles and gold-dipped legs. I am not normally a fan of fake greenery, but I found this amazing fake greenery at a local shop (Open Gate Design & Decor). My friend hand-lettered this chalkboard for me, and she sells the print on Etsy. You can find it HERE. I found the long skinny “baskets” at the Ballard Design outlet, and it makes for an effortless but beautiful centerpiece. Our living room recently underwent a complete spring makeover (you can read about it here). I went from light walls to these bold navy walls. I love the way greenery looks with the dark walls, so I have plants scattered throughout the space. I find my plants everywhere from Home Depot to Lowes to local nurseries. I water them every Monday. I find that it helps to stick to a routine day of the week (so I don’t forget to water). There are some plants that may require a little extra water or mist through the week, but I generally find that one day a week works for me. Our home office also underwent some renovations with a giant wall of bookshelves (you can see all the details here). I use everything from fake greenery to live plants to cut greenery in this room. I found these cute little fake greenery pots at HomeGoods for $13. They were perfect for the top of my bookshelf which doesn’t see much light. I’m still trying to figure out Fiddle Leaf Figs. I’m keeping this one alive, but she has seen better days. I absolutely love the fresh greenery and flowers Trader Joe’s offers. You can buy a bunch of this eucalyptus for $3, and it last for weeks. My kitchen is the last stop on this spring home tour, and like the rest of my spring door, it is simple using touches of green. I am a fan of spray paint. I painted the dollar store vase and transformed it into something more special (and it cost next to nothing). I can’t imagine anything that says spring (and its freshness) more than greenery. I hope you see that spring decorating doesn’t require a lot of time or money. Thanks so April and Krista of for inviting me to participate in this fun series!
