One of the things that I’ve focused on over this last year is really nailing down my neutral palette, and changing the things that don’t fit within it. And one of the things on my very long to-do list was to style the book shelves in my family room. These shelves are big and dominate the whole room, so their effect on the room is significant. I actually re-styled them once before (you can see that post here), and it was my highest read post of 2016!
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!
I’ve been playing around with the decor on my mantel quite a bit lately. It’s so easy at Christmas; between the garland and the stockings, it’s pretty much a no-brainer. But at other times of the year, I like to change it around and sometimes it takes me awhile to get it just right. That’s how I ended up with three versions of a spring mantel 🙂
Each year I usually touch on what is purported to be the “Color of the Year” as seen by Pantone. And this year that color is violet. I have to admit, purple of any shade is not something I’ve decorated with since I had a room that color when I was ten!

A few weeks ago I got an email inviting me (along with several other bloggers) on a private tour of the HGTV® Dream Home 2018 in Gig Harbor, Washington. And let me tell you, that was an email I did not ignore! I had to actually read it twice before I could even believe it was real! I am so honored to have been chosen and given this amazing opportunity. This is the kind of thing every blogger dreams of, and it was truly a dream experience!
Happy Monday to you! Today is a special post as this is my first holiday tour of the season! I’m joining six other amazing bloggers to bring you a French Christmas Tour, hosted by my friend Lory of Designthusiasm. Many of the bloggers I’m joining today are people I was reading before I even started a blog. They are immensely talented, with gorgeous photography and styling, so be sure to scroll to the bottom and visit all of their posts!
