Sprucing Up For Spring!

With Spring rolling around (and Seattle weather cooperating now and then for inspiration - yahoo!), I have been changing things a bit around here.  

Perhaps this is obvious in Spring, but I am drawn to green this time of year.  I'm rearranging the furniture, moving the focal point away from the cozy fireplace and instead facing out into the garden.  I will be using these great botanical pillows in my living room, inspired by the view.  (The picture doesn't do it justice since the leaves are a beautiful mossy green but in this picture don't look as great as they do in real life!) 

Linen is a must for me for Spring and Summer, so the linen curtains are going up again to replace the silk ones.  Mine don't have banding like these, but I really like them.  Maybe I feel another project coming my way!

  Here are a few of my favorite accents that I'll be focusing on:

Fresh flowers!

Moving around accessories to make the home feel "new" again...  
I think layering art looks so casually sophisticated.  Do you agree?
and...THAT LAMP.  Wow.

I'll also be working on a gallery wall in my stairway landing.  This idea has been brewing for a while, but I think I'm ready to take the plunge!

I never want to neglect the kitchen...I spend way too much time in there.  
Fresh citrus is never a bad idea and of course the flowers are fab.  :)
(And I am crazy for those drawer pulls...they are going on my wish list)

How about you?  What do you do to spruce up for Spring?

I've been sprucing up for spring for weeks now in the hopes of bringing it on finally! lol
Beautiful ideas and images, Barbara. I love the fresh flowers in every room in the spring -especially daffodils and tulips.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Barbara,

Just had to post a comment because I have been looking at those knobs for a client.

They are so pretty and reasonable!

Barbara, love all the inspirational images. Yes, soon I will be changing out to my Spring look, waiting for some custom pillows to arrive and then the decorating will begin!! Enjoy your Springtime spruce-ups!

I love the pulls too, Barbara, and the lamp is fabulous!!
I am a winter person, but I am ready for spring this year!
Thank you for your sweet comment.

The most sprucing I have done is clean up and pack away winter blankets (which I ended up needing again over the weekend). I am looking forward to some warmer weather so that I can really spring-it in earnest!
