Today I’m so excited to be joining two of my favorite blogger friends, Cindy of Rough Luxe Lifestyle and Mary Ann of Classic Casual Home, for one of their monthly Project Design challenges. They’ve invited me and 6 other bloggers and designers to participate in an entry way refresh for spring. I have to admit, as thrilled as I was to be included, I was also a little hesitant. My entry way is not very large, and by far the darkest room in my whole house! But, since this is a design challenge, I decided I would challenge myself to see if I could improve this area!
Hello everyone and Happy Friday! If you’re coming here from my friend Oscar’s, welcome! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. And if you’re a regular reader, today I have something special to share with you! This week I’m joining 13 amazing bloggers and we’re sharing our ideas on how to style your home for spring. We’re all doing a different take on the season. Some are doing tablescapes, some just a room, and some a whole house. There are a ton of ideas and all different styles, so you’re bound to find some inspiration! Today I’ll be sharing my new spring kitchen with you all!
Red isn’t a color that works well in most areas of my house as all the blues and greens really throw it off. But since my kitchen is white, I can definitely do it in this room. In fact, one of the things I like best about a white kitchen is the fact that I can decorate easily for every season. Everything goes with white!
First, I added a few things that just say winter to me, with the primary one being pinecones. They’re appropriate at Christmas, obviously, but I feel like they cross over into “winter decor” as well. In addition, I changed the baskets in front of my mantel and added my vintage French demijohn.

Thank you again for stopping by! I hope you will take the time to pop over to Amy at Crazy Chic Design next, and then on to the other homes from there. These are some amazing bloggers and I know you’ll find ideas and inspiration from all of them!
Farmhouse Inspired Christmas TourI used a live tree in the family room with a burlap tree skirt. This little cabin/house was a find this year at Home Goods. I have bought and collected the little white houses before, but for some reason, this just spoke to me! The frosty white trees are old but these are almost exactly the same!
The urns are Pottery Barn.
