{ Early Spring Cottage Style Living Room Decor }

Happy Friday everyone! I hope your Friday started of better than ours did haha..It started Thursday with our WIFI being out & with no resolved issues we called another 2 times before making an appointment at 2am { we work crazy schedules ha } & them sending someone out to our house at 8am replacing all our boxes , tearing my office up a bit & finally getting things back to working! With all that being said that is why today's post is being put out late Friday night/ early Saturday morning which is so random for me...Random is how life has been this last year for us though honestly! It's been crazy trying to grow to businesses from scratch, running a house, animals, family etc..No complaints..well there have been some haha, but I'm just trying to keep trucking along these days. For as long as I can remember I've struggled with change & this "time" thing...It's something that gets a hold of me & I really can't explain why...Maybe that's why I love writing & photography, it's like a documentation?!  I wanted to jump on here today & share some bright spring changes in our upper level living space..The cheery spring touches have me craving spring!  

I got sick of our IKEA ottoman snagging the rug, & the top being pulled off, so we decided since it wasn't working for us anymore I would replace it with this little green chippy table/stool! I'm not sure if it will stay, but for right now I love it! I'm on the hunt for a more practical ottoman & have a perfect unique one in the works #staytuned. 

Side Note: I would NOT recommend the Ektorp sofa or ottoman. See why HERE

The jute rug is new as well! I switched out our +Ruggable® 2-Piece Rug System  rug { which I LOVE } from our bedroom & replaced it with this one for a more neutral spring look!  
**You can read more about the awesome rug you can wash like a blanket HERE

Since it's so early for spring stuff I basically just used things I had already..Ikea greenery, +Target 
  wreath, some fresh grey Ikea pillows, chippy wood stool & some flowers etc..

The mini metal vintage toolbox is from my grams & fit perfectly on the chippy white mantel from +HomeGoods ! The black candle stick holders I brought up from downstairs! Everything was super simple,but gave enough of a refreshed feeling for early spring.

What do you guys think about this refreshed space for what I hope to be spring on its way? What do you plan on decorating with to brighten up spaces in your home this year for spring? Let me know down below!

Happy Friday & weekend!
