I know some people love to have a dining set. I have friends (and some clients) who don’t even want to mix woods in a room! But I’m quite the opposite. I love the creativity that a mix of woods, paint colors or styles affords you. And one of the most fun ways to achieve that mix is by mixing dining chairs. It adds character and interest that you simply can’t get with a matching set!
It’s spring! Well, not exactly or officially, haha! But it is March. And we sprung ahead on the clocks this past weekend, so it’s as close as we need to be to decorate!
I know a lot of friends and readers who have asked me about decorating for winter or spring. It seems everyone decorates for the holidays, and that’s kind of straight up and obvious. Everyone gets that one. But winter and spring are another story. Especially when you don’t celebrate Easter, or when Easter is really late, like this year. It’s sometimes hard to figure out what the right balance is. How to do it easily. How not to get too “theme-y.” And how to do it without breaking the bank!
Hi all, and happy Wednesday! Hope you’re all enjoying your week. I’ve been busy getting my youngest settled back in school, and we spent this past weekend bringing my daughter back to college for her sophomore year. I tell you, it doesn’t get any easier!
So I’ve been looking for a dining room table for what seems like forever now! Not looking everyday, all-the-time mind you, but looking here and there and shopping around – for at least two years! I’ve been looking on the internet, in catalogs, shops, and antique stores, as well as on sites such as Chairish and Ebay.
Hi all, and Happy First Day of Spring! I’m so excited to be sharing my first spring home tour of the season, and I’m joined by eleven of my favorite bloggers who are also sharing their very best spring decorating ideas! If you’re landing here from my friend Lory’s, thanks so much for stopping by. She always has the most beautiful flowers, and I have a feeling this tour will be no exception!
Happy Friday! It’s time for another week of French Country Fridays where we all share French design, decor, DIYs, and entertaining ideas each week.
This week I’ve been feeling so much better. I’ve finally been driving so, of course, one of my first outings was to the antique mall (shocker there)! Not only did it feel so good just to do some “normal” things again, but I found the most amazing French urn! I’ll be sharing it next week when my spring blog hop goes live on Tuesday. I have ten friends joining me so I hope you’ll tune in for that!
