Family Room Re-fresh!

Spring Living Room (Sunny Side Up)

I hope you all had a good long weekend!  We found our snow!  I’ll be sharing a few pics from our weekend in a personal post I’m working on that’s coming soon.  But first.. a few updates on my family room!  I had these pics ready to post over the weekend and just never had time while we were traveling so here is what this space is looking like at the moment.

Spring Living Room (Sunny Side Up)

I’ve been slowly trying to add some Spring touches to my home to welcome a new season!  Last time we talked I had just shared the fun pillow arrangement I have going on in my family room.  (You can find details and sources along with other favorite pillow options here.)  I’m really loving a pink and navy combo at the moment!  The navy adds so much warmth and depth while the pink brings in some light and bright for Spring.

Aside from a few pillow/throw changes I also brought this favorite navy lamp in from my front entry and love it on our end table!

I switched  a few things around on my built-in shelves and kept things cohesive by using whites, golds, navy and wood tones.

I also brought a favorite X base stool in from our guest room to try in front of this chair.  I think it’s a little tall for this space so I’m looking for a pouf or something shorter but I definitely need something here because seriously the second I brought this into our family room EVERYONE wanted to sit on this chair!  It kind of made me laugh.  The forgotten striped chair was all of the sudden the family hot spot. :)  Also sidenote.. this beautiful gold floor lamp I got around the holidays is back in stock!  It comes as a set of two with the cutest task lamp (you can see the table lamp in this post).  Such a great deal on the two lamps together!

I’m really loving my shelves at the moment!  I’m constantly moving things around on these shelves and sometimes struggle to get them looking just right, but I feel like I finally got them to a very happy place. :)  The cute little market basket was a splurge (I debated it for two months before finally pulling the trigger!) but I could NOT love it more.  It added so much personality to these shelves and will look good in so many spots around my house when I mix things up in this space again.  It was one of those things I decided not to buy, but then couldn’t stop thinking about.  That’s usually when I know it was meant to go in my shopping cart. ;)

And my dreaded larger than life fireplace mantel?  Dun dun dun!  Nothing.  Ahh.. curse that big mantel!

Something will come to me.  It just hasn’t yet. :)

For the moment my console table is simple and ready for Spring!  I took down my beloved arrow that was there forever (it was time!) and then brought in some favorite art that used to be in my entry and a pink ginger jar.  Then I filled my large white vase with the most beautiful faux pink cherry blossom branches!  I’ve been slowly adding to my collection of these gorgeous faux flowers and couldn’t love them more.

Aren’t they stunning!?  I might put them in a different vase (debating clumping them together a little tighter) but this is working for now.  (You can see more of my favorite faux flowers and vases in this post.)

My Valentine decor is still up and I’m thinking (aside from the banner over my stove that’s easy to take down) I’ll leave it all up through February.  Then it’s March.. my favorite month of the year!  Spring really starts popping in San Diego in March and the flowers and smells are my favorite!

Still loving this beautiful blue rug in my dining nook!  Kenny’s beloved law school books have done their job and are put away until they are needed by a rug in the future. ;)  My poor guest bedroom.  I keep pulling things from it to add to other spaces.  Ha!  It’s looking a little sad and the moment and will need some attention at some point before we have company again!

So there you go!  A few fun Spring touches in the family room.  Before Spring is really here.  But it’s the season that just can’t come fast enough right?

So why not bring it inside a little early? :)

  1. Such beautiful spaces, Erin! You’ve done a terrific job brightening it up for Spring. You are lucky that it actually arrives in March. I just heard on the news that we will be getting another snowstorm next week and the reminder that March and April are our snowiest months. Gah, I just KNEW we would pay for that 70 degree weekend a few weeks ago! Mother Nature keeps send snowstorms ;) I adore that cable knit pillow on your fireplace and how you styled your shelves. Someday I am going through my shelves to declutter them and then style them up prettily. Today is not that day, but someday! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home and giving those of us who aspire to that loveliness lots of inspiration. :)

    1. Jeanne! I know.. snowstorms in March/April/May just aren’t appreciated! I’m so sorry. This time of year really is the best time to be in San Diego because Spring hits early. When it’s September and October (our hottest time of the year with wildfires happening right and left) and everyone else is wearing cute boots and sweaters with pumpkin spice everything YOU are the lucky one! We clearly need to visit each other during certain times of the year. ;) I’m so happy you like the shelf styling! If I was your neighbor I’d come by and declutter yours for you. That honestly sounds so fun! Enjoy your day! I hope it’s a good one. :)

  2. Ahhhh this makes me want to decorate for spring!!! I love the pink navy gold combo! Brilliant! Your house looks so happy! 🙂

    1. So sweet of you Amy! Thank you! Spring decorating is fun isn’t it!? I love all of the plants and flowers. Mostly faux around my house.. but that makes me love them even more.. ha! ;)

  3. I love the touches of spring that you’ve added! I noticed that your fireplace mantel is bare, as is ours at the moment. Why is it so hard to decorate mantels, especially after the holidays? Please send ideas in future posts if you have them. Our mantel is not that wide, so it makes for a bigger challenge. We also have a mirror above, which is framed in gold.

    1. Thank you Ingrid! I know.. mantels are hard and this one is especially hard for me because it’s so big! My smaller mantel in my living room is so much easier to decorate. I’ll definitely share pics as soon as I figure out what I’m doing with my mantels this Spring! xo

  4. Love the 3 navy vases you have. I’m waiting until the end of February to put away the little Valentine’s touches around our house. I still have red and white gingham duvet cover on our bed from Christmas and it transitioned into Valentine’s so perfectly. The days are going so fast that I don’t want to rush it so much that I’m not enjoying the moment. Yet I definitely love all things Spring!

    1. So fun Debbie! I know.. it’s nice when the Christmas stuff can easily work for Valentine’s Day too! Also nice to enjoy it as much as possible. :)

    1. So sweet of you Carey.. thank you! That chandelier is from Jeremiah (Craftmade). I’m not sure if they still sell it or not! I bought it about 7 years ago. :)

  5. So pretty! Quick question, think you will be doing a master closet post? We are going to be re-doing ours this year and the peek you showed before was cute. Need ideas and inspo….so I check your blog first, Ha!

    1. Thank you so much! I will definitely share my closet once I get it organized! It’s a tough spot for me to keep clean. ;) But hopefully coming! So exciting you’re working on yours this year! xo

  6. Hi Erin, I love the organized and serene feeling of your home! Can you tell me the gray paint color you are using? It’s such a struggle
