Spring Living Room Tour

Last Friday was my Spring Home Tour and if you didn’t get a chance to take a look, you can see it {HERE}.  I had so many photos, though, that I didn’t end up including all of them!  Today, I’m sharing a few more pictures of my living room that didn’t make it into last week’s post.

I moved some of my side tables around to create more space near the window for plants, like an orchid and a ZeeZee plant that I’ve put in an ironstone soup tureen.



I really love orchids and my local grocery store has a great selection, although inevitably, I kill them. :(



I never realized just how many old books I have until I was moving everything in preparation for the new floors.  There are just so many uses for books in decorating, though!  {THIS POST} has a whole list of ideas about how to use books.



I found these blue and white pillows at HomeGoods and bought them for the living room, but then moved them to the guest bedroom, and then back to the living room… I like that they brighten the space a bit and with some of the other changes that are coming up, I think I’ll be using more pops of white around the house.



I changed my coffee table style from The 4 Corner approach to Long and Linear.  If you want to read more about ways to style a coffee table, read {THIS POST}.  I used a basket tray to hold some magazines and an ironstone pot of roses, as well as my favorite cloche.



I love swapping out what I put in my cloche, but for Spring, I’m using some old flower frogs, moss, and feathers!


My home renovations started Monday morning and while the living room isn’t a part of the remodel, I’ll be changing up at few things to help brighten it a bit.  Also on my To Do list is to take a nice picture of the kids to frame above the fireplace, but somehow, the idea of getting them to stand next to one another nicely and smile seems overwhelming and difficult!! #siblings




I’ll be sharing some candid photos of the remodel in my Facebook page so pop over to see the updates and progress!

    So many beautiful elements, I love using books to decorate around the house, i like grouping them together or using them to highlight other pieces. Old books are so beautiful, love the smell and the sound of the paper as you flip through the pages.

      I never thought about the sound of the pages but you’re right, that is a great sound! If I like the cover, I leave it facing out and if I don’t, I turn the book around so that the pages face out which gives me a lot more decorating options. Do you collect your old books based on the author or story or just the aesthetic look?

        I must admit that I probably pick some books based on the looks. I know so superficial. :) A lot of times I reach for books I read before. I just like to see what the book looked like generations before me.

    It all looks beautiful. Love the pillows from HG. Are you sure you kill your orchids? They kind of go dormant after they bloom but then come back:)

      Well that’s a good question….I knew that they went dormant but are the leaves supposed to wither and turn brown in the dormant state? If not then I think it’s safe to say that I kill them!! Lol!

      Thank you, Stacey! I’ve been stuck in bed the last couple of days sick with a cold/flu but I promise to post some remodel updates soon!

    Love how you accessorize your room! Have been admiring the drapes in the background and have been searching for this exact color and silky fullness. Are they custom? If not where can I find them?

      Hi Sylva! Thank you so much! These are 100% silk from HalfPriceDrapes.com. They have an amazing selection, great quality and amazing prices. I took a quick look online and didn’t see my exact curtains, but it’s possible I just missed them because they do have a large inventory. Be sure to check out the Sale section, too! Good luck! :) Kim

    You are the accessory queen. I always get great ideas from the details you use in each of your rooms. So pretty!
