TIDBITS&TWINE Spring Home Tour 2016

Hello and welcome!  Spring has finally arrived and I’m definitely ready for the warmer weather and pretty colors.  How about you?

I was so thrilled when Marty from A Stroll Thru Life invited me to be a part of the 2016 Spring Home Tour.  She kicked off the tour on Monday and if you haven’t seen her beautiful home, you should definitely check it out {HERE}.  If you’re visiting from Talk of the House, welcome!  I’m Kim!

Let’s start in the living room, which is the first room you see when you walk through the front door.  I’ve freshened things up at bit with some brighter coffee table decor and of course, I’ve moved the furniture around again.  I just can’t help myself!

I finally got wise and moved the blue throw to the center of the sofa because that’s where Mimi {our dog} sits and waits for me whenever I leave the house and this way, she doesn’t create a dirty spot on the back of the sofa.  {Please pardon her dirty face – this was the day before she got groomed!}

I’m also experimenting with some new houseplants this spring.  Sadly, I’m managed to kill so many over the years because my house doesn’t get a lot of direct light, but my new ZeeZee plant seems to be doing just fine so far….well, except the bite marks at the end of the leaves where the cat took a tiny taste…  {I still swear by the pothos, though!  It’s the easiest houseplant to care for ever!}

Even though I just snapped these photos last week, the room no longer looks like this {you can see what it looks like now HERE}!

And now on to the dining room.  I put together a simple brunch tablescape using roses, hydrangea, basil, and pears.  Natural elements are my favorite tabletop decor items.

I tend to use my white everyday dishes no matter the occasion but for this table setting, I added DIY mini clipboard menus to sit atop each plate.

Pink and green flowers are my favorite Spring combination!

I started making some updates to the family room at the beginning of the year because after Christmas, I was really itching for a change.  My TV gallery wall got a bit of an update thanks to some argyle-wearing pets and mementos from last year’s trip to England.  You can see more about this wall, including tips for arranging and hanging {HERE}.

I also updated our guest bedroom just a bit.  It had a makeover not too long ago but I always knew that I had a few more updates to do….it just took me about a year to do them!  Some new blankets, an area rug, and storage baskets at the ends of the beds really changed the look of this room.

I love decorating bookshelves and so just couldn’t help myself when it came to refreshing the cabinet in between the guest beds.

One of my favorite additions is the framed wi-fi password signs which keeps guests from having to ask me {especially since I can never remember it!}.

As a final touch, I added some paper and pencils to the cabinet as well since the top can slide forward to become a writing desk.

    Your guest bedroom is amazing!! Can I come over and stay there? :) If that piece of furniture between the beds goes missing, you will know who has it. Just sayin… :)
    Beautiful job with all your spring accents!

    Such a beautiful home and tour. I love every room, but your dining room has always been such a favorite. That pretty blue in your living room also always catches my eye. Gorgeous. Thanks so much for joining in the tours, such a treat to have you.

      Thank you so much for hosting, Marty! I always enjoy viewing all of the tours and have met so many wonderful people through this tour. :) My dining room is about to get a makeover and I hope it turns out well…I’m sure it will take me another year to complete though because I never do anything quickly. Lol! Happy Easter! -Kim

    Love your decorating style. Your home looks so warm and inviting. HoW did you do your diningroom chairs that are numbered? Was that a diy or did you have someone reupholster them?

    Lovely! Kim, your photos are a real treat for the eyes. I couldn’t help but notice your vintage Gene Stratton-Porter. “Every intoxicating delight of early spring was in the air. The breeze that fanned her cheek was laden with subtle perfume and the crisp, fresh odor of unfolding leaves.” ― Gene Stratton-Porter, The Song of the Cardinal. I’m very fond of her writing and would die if I ever found one like that :)

      Hi Colleen – I had never even paid any attention to what books I owned {I buy them based on the look of their pages} but the quote you gave is so beautiful perhaps I should give reading the book a try! Thank you so much for sharing this information with me!! :) Kim
