2019 Spring Home Tour

Sharing is caring!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my Spring 2019 Home Tour as part of A Stroll Thru Life’s Tour of Homes. I will sadly have to admit that I had GRAND PLANS to decorate and take photos of my home over spring break last week and then I got ridiculously, awfully ill and ended up not really doing anything during my entire spring break except sleeping and blowing my nose. 

I adore being part of Marty’s tours, so I got it together to showcase at least three beautiful spaces. One is completely new– well, I got a new dining table back in late January and this is it’s blog debut. The other two rooms were completed in February and are colorful, fun and full of floral inspo for your spring and summer spaces. Let’s dive in!

If you’ve landed here from The Chronicles of Home, welcome! My name is Monica, and I blog about home decor, my weight loss struggles and I love finding ways to make my home look expensive on the cheap.

But you’re likely here to look at pretty photos, so I will shut up and get to it.

Spring Dining Room Decor

Honestly, we don’t really use the dining room that much because it was kind of impossible and cluttered with our former small, round white dining table. 

Our new dining table has two leaves built-in, so it can morph from small round table to giant oval table. Perfect for our needs- here it is with just one of the leaves in use.

I do definitely need to invest a bigger rug, but for now it totally works. Initially, we wanted a white dining table, but the warmth of this particular finish really won me over. It’s not distressed or farmhouse, so I think it totally does mesh well in here and adds some different tones to the space.

We got this table in time for a magazine shoot, and I commissioned a custom bouquet from my friend who owns Wild Veggie Bouquet. It is a stunner. I love how she incorporates veggies, fruits and florals all together to create one of kind masterpieces.

To compliment all the colors, I went for contrast and florals for the placemats and dinnerware. I always enjoy putting together an eclectic, colorful, feminine vibe to all my spaces. 

Chinoiserie Office Decor for Spring

It is perpetually spring in my home office! I have florals galore in this space, and I have a full home office reveal post with tons of photos and info about all the details, but here are some highlights.

The rug is one of my FAVE things in my home, and I was honored to write about my experience with this beauty over on the Karastan Live Beautifully blog.

I did quite a bit of DIY to get this office done on a budget. One major project was revamping this campaign chest— it was so beat up and I brought it back to life in a step-by-step tutorial

Another decor piece I desperately wanted in here was a lucite memo board, and using my handy dandy new Cricut Maker, I made it happen using an inexpensive acrylic floating frame.

And my GORGEOUS DIY bamboo chinoiserie wallpaper panels were another big project that I also have a full, detailed tutorial about. I love how large they are and I smile every time I see them.

Guest Bedroom Decor Ideas

My final space today is my newly done guest room. It was so bland and so very cluttered before this room refresh.

Again, there’s ton of color and pattern in this space, and if you want to see every detail, you should definitely check out the guest bedroom reveal. This room was truly done on a budget! The bed skirt was $15, the rug is about $100, and those polka dots were about $10 for the pack of 22.
