{ Cottage Style Living Room Easter Mantel Decor }

Happy Friday friends & thanks so much for stopping back in!! If you've been following me you would most likely know I've been out of commission for a few days because of my back...not fun! While I've been taking it easy  I did decide to add a few touches of spring/Easter to our upper level living room fireplace! I know I should've resting, but I literally can't go more than a few hours without decorating or thinking about decor/blogging etc..I'm obsessed & to be honest it's like therapy..or just my true passion I guess!!! I knew I couldn't do anything like painting or DIY these last few days, so I decided to do something simple, yet would cozy up our upper level for spring..even though it's currently hailing outside..#michigan haha! I've said it a few times but Easter isn't really my thing, but lately I've actually enjoyed adding springy Eastery touches around the house..Probably because it's been super gloomy here in the north! Anyways enough small talk ,come see our cozy & fresh mantel below!!!


I had these baskets in our guest room from at Hobby Lobby that I picked up last year for $4 each! They just so happen to match the grey check pillow covers from Ikea! The grass greenery is also from Ikea & the eggs are from Hobby Lobby.


The "herbs" sign was a DIY many years back..before blogging I believe.




Galvanized goods, greenery & vintage mason jars complete this white chippy milk painted mantel!



The bunny garland is from Target for $3!


The wooden legs are from an old family table, the pussy willow branches are from Michaels & the crocks were free finds!


What do you guys think of our cozy, greenery filled fireplace mantel? I love how rustic ,yet fresh & farmhousy it looks! The bits of Easter make it just festive enough without being overpowering I think! Let me know your favorite Easter / spring decor to use in the comments!

Happy Friday & weekend!!!

{ Bright & Cheery Cottage Style Easter Decor Inspiration }

Hey guys I wanted to pop on here today & share something quite out of the norm for me...Decor with COLOR!!! I know gasp right?! As I was cleaning like a mad lady this past weekend, I also was decorating our little suburban cottage with lots of spring decor & some new items I picked up for the dining room...This new decor was a cheery country artsy type of plate that was splashed with color!! I loved the placemats & dishes in the store, but then when I got them home I didn't like them at all!! It hit me that I struggle with using color I think because color to me means less cozy & more sterile. Not always the case,but compared to neutrals this can be the issue! With all that being said, I went on the hunt for Easter/ Spring decor with color, cozy patterns & that whimsical Easter charm with a touch of cottage style too! Come see some of my favorite items I pulled together below!


I've always been a fan of this light whimsical country blue color & paired with the softest pale pink for Easter is perfect! The item that started this whole board was the checkered blue pillows!! I think I NEED these in my life!! They looks so fresh & cozy with that pop of color still! The hydrangeas , jute rug & cute bunny mug / pitcher are simple, yet festive touches! My second favorite to the pillows would definitely be the Easter eggs with letters!


Stayed tuned for some changes around our cottage coming soon! I hope you guys liked this quick little inspiration board & decor ideas! What do you think of these items & the pops of colors?

Happy Wednesday!

{ Super Simple Cottage Style Spring Tablescape Idea }

We're are only on Tuesday & I'm already feeling really tired this week y'all!! It seems like every year around this time everything starts picking up for us & this year is definitely no exception around here...I woke up to my husband saying he scheduled a walk-through for a potential house this upcoming weekend, listings & his big ole diesel is being fixed, so that means using my Jeep back & forth mixed with working & well..LIFE! It always seems with us when we go to move that we get a new vehicle along with buying a new house...never planned, but always seems to happens that way. We've been looking for some land & a new house for 2 years, just 2.5 years after we moved into this house { which we love } but we need more land because of all our equipment etc.. So, see why I'm feeling tired already...Anyways today is all about the super simple Easter/Spring tablescape I popped together a few days back! I cleaned the entire house, moved & redecorated each room & thought I'd share how a  festive table can still be cozy & neutral at the same time!


I was craving a simple cleaned off table with just some jute placemats , gold rimmed dishes, some little Easter touches & a farmhouse tea towel cloth from +IKEA USA 



The simplicity is what I'm loving, but also how simple can also be cozy & cute as well! 


I asked you guys via IG Stories HERE the other day which you liked better { these neutral planters or floral plates} & most of you said these, so back to the store the plates went! These are super old, but I still love them & they were really affordable from +IKEA USA .



If you read yesterday's blog post I blogged this cabinet styled for Easter HERE
I decided to add it in today's post after I restyled it again..I'm kind of digging this cabinet & how it looks all decked out for spring! The brown glass mason jars, brass lids & bright green apples pulled it all together! 



How beautiful does this cabinet look?! I'm not going to lie, I kind of neglected this cabinet for awhile without really styling or opening it..I fell back in love it with & gave it some much need attention instead of just "having" it! I do wish this cabinet has more storage for all my dishes though..I may be sharing a new piece soon!!


I know I shared this sign quite a bit in the last few months, but it goes so lovely in our dining room & I love the dishes & planters next to it..plus the wording are all the heart eyes!!!




What do you guys think about this bright spring table & greenery filled dining room of ours?? I think this may be my most favorite spring dining room yet!! You can see our whole Spring Home Tour HERE if you're interested in some more inspiration!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

{ Farmhouse Style Neutral Easter Cabinet }

Oh heyyy Monday & everyone!! I hope you all has a lovely weekend..ours was eventful to say the least, but I wouldn't expect anything else in our household ugh haha. Anyways I had to step back for a minute this weekend & just focus on styling & photographing something before I let the issue at hand get the best of me...I randomly decided to clean & tear apart our vintage 1940's chippy white corner cabinet in our dining area & style it for Easter..I'm not one to go crazy for Easter decor by any means, but I had to share this little space I decided to add a bit of festive charm with goods I already had stashed away! I didn't want anything too bright or contrasting to what we love which is cottage & farmhouse treasures..So that meant some simple greenery, bundle of carrots & some glass goodies! Come take a peek at what I did for this little cabinet in less than 20 minutes..Oh & thank you sun for finally being out here in Michigan!!



I've been really into gold & these vintage thrift plates were no exception! I love the simple faux farmhouse eggs from +Hobby Lobby  paired with the spring succulents & dishes!


The mug is from +Marshalls  & I thought it was perfect for Easter ..I may not have coffee in it, but some yummy hot chocolate was even better!






I love these little carrot bunches I picked up from Tuesday Morning store! They added that tiny bit up Easter without being overwhelming! I maybe adding more to this cabinet for Easter, but for now the eggs & little carrots make this super cozy & with a touch of festivity!



This cabinet was one of our very first DIY projects back in 2008 when we lived in our stylish & fun condo!! I think it will always be a part of my furniture & decor, at least for now anyway!

I hope you guys liked this simple Easter/Spring cabinet all decorated! What's your favorite piece to decorate with & do you decorate for Easter? 

Happy & healthy Monday!

{ Farmhouse Style Spring Pillow Collection }

Hey everybody!! Ahh you know those days where you have a bunch of stuff that needs to be done, you  get half finished, come home nap & wake up at 11pm... Ya, that was me today! I knew this week was going to be busy for us, but it's proving to be busier than expected haha..I never nap so, I guess I was really tired or needed it! Anyways today as I walked in the door & also as I photographed our office HERE I realized that I didn't have any "spring" style pillows around the house out yet...I did have some last year around this time, but a certain little pibble puppy may have chewed the zippers off..Thanks,Stewart hahah! I put together a little collage of some of my favorite pillows I found while online shopping..I can't wait to order some & blog it! Come check them out below!!!


Time to add some spring pillows with some warm pops of green & tan again...



Which one is your favorite? I'm obsessed with all of them, even the darker one!! I think it's ordering time haha whoops! I hope you like these choices as much as I do!

Happy Wednesday!

{ Farmhouse Office Revamp for Under $100 }

Eekk you guys I've been wanting to share this post for the past week now & finally just put the finishing touches on it today & photographed! I'm going to start by saying this space has really weird light distribution, so the lighting may not be the best, but it's sooo fresh, clean & cozy now! Yes, today's post is all devoted to my lower level semi finished farmhouse style office revamp!!1 I've frequently revamp spaces, but this one needed it for quite sometime now...I started by painting the walls from a dark grey to a light white/grey/blue color { sorry no name on the can }. It was leftover paint from another DIY & I just really liked it for the office & had enough! We ended up tearing down the drop-cloth ceiling we did a few years back & letting the rustic white wood & beams show & touching up some trim with plain white paint we had also leftover! I replaced the old grey & blue wool rug with something brighter with a touch of bohemian feel to it & then just added some vintage treasures I've collected over the years & giving the space a nice clean { just don't look at the other side haha }. We also ended pitching the metal & glass desk & just using the craft table I had with a huge white ruffle farmhouse table cloth from +H&M ! Come see the biggest piece I picked up for this space below...

B E F O R E 

Old Office HERE



I didn't have a plan for this space other than I wanted it to be super bright, cozy & vintage inspired! I wanted cleaned & simple,and  everything came together for this space pretty effortlessly which is pretty much unheard of with my decor shenanigans haha! The metal mail storage is from +Marshalls  for $8, the silver paper tray was $2, vintage flower can was free & the greenery is from +Michaels Stores .


I have a lot of paper work with both my husband's business, mine & just craft/DIY stuff so I need all the space..I'm so much happier with this large farmhouse table setup rather than the older small desk! Sometimes I ask myself why I don't change things faster..Oh, because change scares me a lot because to me it's a sign of time running crazily fast these days..


The white bookshelf is from +IKEA USA  as well as the cream farmhouse organizers. The black wood mini filing is from +Marshalls 

 


The piece that brought this whole space together was this huge wood vintage inspired sign I picked up +HomeGoods for under $40. They only got two in which I loved..so one came home with me! It's perfect for this space!

Side Note: It lights up too bahaha..That kind of sold my "kid at heart" soul haha. I didn't get a picture of it lit up, but it's so pretty at night & bonus it runs on batteries! 


Other than the paint & sign this was the other big change..FINALLY a new rug!! I've said this a million times, but I'm super picky about rugs!! When I spotted this one on sale +Target  for under $60, I had to get it! It fit & looks so perfect for what I wanted & super affordable too!



I really hope this fresh & thrifty farmhouse office gave you some simple inspiration!! I'm not going to lie I'm obsessed with my cozy new office & will enjoy my countless hours in here hehe..Now to keep the "office mascot" aka Mr. Wibbles our bunny off the rug..haha P.S. As soon as I get some time I'm going to be freshening up the other side of my office with the built-ins & decor & I'll do a post! That side of the office is a disasterrrr, but today I'm enjoying this part! Let me know down below what you think of this revamp!

Happy Tuesday!
