She didn’t stop with the bird painting at Pier One. She also picked up some fun, bright pillows that add such a great pop of color to her neutral couch. That’s the way to do it people. Buy a neutral couch and change the pillows whenever you’re in the mood to mix things up. Instead of buying bold colorful couches. Like I did. :) Oops! Lesson learned. (Although I loved my bold colorful couches for seven years – but now going on year eight – not so much.)
I cannot believe it is almost the first of March!! It feels like just two days ago our Elf on the Shelf was heading back to the North Pole. And now all of the sudden it’s almost here. My favorite month! March signals Spring around here (well – pretty much any month could signal Spring around here) but March is when I can make it official. I am so excited to decorate and make my house feel a bit more Spring-y! My mom has already started adding some Spring touches to her beautiful home so while we were visiting last weekend I took a few pics. Because that’s what I do. :)
First – her bird painting. A score from Pier One Imports. I LOVE all of the colors.
I also love the way it looks on her beautiful rock fireplace. The accents to the side of the painting (a small plant, clear jars, and a bird nest with a few eggs) are perfect little touches for a Spring mantel.
Love her built-ins and beautiful french doors…
and her wood floors…and her pillars…and everything else about her house!
Those bright pillows were just what this living room needed! Mom – I’ll tell you what this living room doesn’t need. That trunk you are using for a coffee table. It would look much better somewhere else. Say… in my house in San Diego perhaps? Just a thought.
(You know I’m not giving up until that trunk is mine.)
Love, your favorite.
Looks like March signals Spring in Utah too! Or at least it does in my mom’s house. Thanks for letting me take pics of your house again mom. And thanks for the trunk. In advance.
Happy almost March everyone!!
