2016 Spring Home Tour

Sharing is caring!

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. I’m honored and excited to be taking part in another fabulous tour of homes coordinated by Marty from A Stroll Thru Life. She’s a talented, kind blogger that I am happy to call a friend.

If you’re here from Decor to Adore, welcome! Laura’s blog is so beautiful- I am so excited she’s planning on heading to Ireland in 2017. I am smitten with her Eiffel Tower covered with flowers. It’s now on my to do list.

Recently I was contacted to take on a huge DIY project in my home (details coming soon!!), so both my living room and dining room have been in disarray for about 10 days, BUT I still wanted to show you all some pretty home decor to get you in the spring mood.

The main attraction today is the unveiling of my new black accent wall in the master bedroom. 

MASTER BEDROOM

I am SO EXCITED to unveil my new master bedroom accent wall. I had blogged about wanting a black wall in my master bedroom back in July, and I took the plunge about three weeks ago. Looking back, I wish I’d done it sooner. The tricorn black color (from Sherwin-Williams) makes my room feel so luxe and cozy. Oddly enough, our master bedroom feels larger and brighter now.

There are a few more things I’ve done to our master bedroom that I cannot share until April 5, so make sure to come back or subscribe (in the sidebar or bottom of this post) so you can see the full scope of the makeover. It’s swoon worthy.

KITCHEN

Let’s mosey on over to the kitchen. I’ve been undergoing a kitchen renovation since August, and although it’s moving at a snail’s pace, I have gotten the breakfast nook completed. You can read all about it here (and here), but here’s a few shots of the space in it’s bright, chic spring glory.

LIVING ROOM

The living room is the area that is currently undergoing a mini-reno, but I have accomplished a few things this year to revamp the space a bit. First is getting a new rug, painting my lampshades black and goldredoing my bookcase, and getting a gorgeous new end table that cost under $150

OUTDOOR/BACKYARD

My outdoor area got a little TLC thanks to my $100 backyard makeover. The cabana striped umbrella is perfection, and I love sitting out there and listening to birds singing. If I wasn’t on Weight Watchers right now, I’d likely go out there and drink wine or cocktails. I miss those. :(

I hope you enjoyed my spring tour! As you can see, I am loving coral, pink, orange and my signature black and white color palette. 

If you love a good before and after post, I’ll have a lot of DIY reveals in April. 

Now I’m turning you over to Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane– her shabby chic, farmhouse style makes me want to book a weekend at a B&B, stat. So dreamy and romantic…love it.

I love this new dark grey/black accent in the bedroom. I personally choose light colors for home, but enjoy staying in hotel rooms with dark or bright accents.

Your home is beautiful. You did a great job with all your decorating. I always wonder about a "dark" wall, if it would make the room look small. Very bold and very beautiful.

The accent wall in the bedroom is awesome! I also like the patterns used together. :)
