Spring has sprung!!

Spring is here and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve made my first (of many, I’m sure) Homegoods run to deck the place out 🙂 I always luck up at this store…remember my amazing Homegoods find for my dining room? Get ready for pastels, flowers, and pops of fun!

The family room is the center of our home, so I had to give our fireplace mantle a little TLC.

For this Spring, I wanted to bring the outdoors in. I can almost hear the birds chirping!

It’s amazing what switching out a few accessories does for a room. It makes it feel brand new!

New pillows and a few spots of Easter charm warms our living room.

Home for the Holidays 2013: Living Room Tour

Living room tour 3

I hope you’re all enjoying my Home for the Holidays series thus far. So far I’ve shared our Family Room Holiday Decor, a yummy Christmas cookie recipe, and some of my favorite things in 2013 (they’ll make great stocking stuffers!)

Next up is our Living Room Tour!

I actually think that this is the first time you are all seeing this room with furniture! Since we decided to keep our family room a bit more rustic and casual, we wanted to really make the living room vibrant. The jewel tones throughout the space are playful and add a bit of magic to the room.

I love the elegance that pillared candles bring the a space– not to mention how romantic the soft glow is at night.

Beautifully wrapped presents adorn our windowsill coupled with large colorful ornaments and lit garland.

Our tree has a whimsical theme with colored balls, snowflakes, and icicles hanging from its branches.

This decorated credenza is probably my favorite corner of the room and is home to some very special pieces that are close to my heart.

How cute is this “Let it Snow” pillow? I just love it. And what’s funny is that the moment I placed this pillow in the chair, I noticed snowflakes start to fall outside. By the time we were done decorating the room, our lawn was covered in white!

These little guys were given to me by my mother 3 years ago. She used to collect nutcrackers when I was growing up and would display them every year on our mantle at Christmas. Now that I’ve been given a few of her favorites, I have a piece of “home” with me during the holidays!

And of course, we can’t forget the romance at Christmas. See you under the mistletoe Mr. H 🙂20131209-200921.jpg

The nutcrackers continue along our back window and keep watch over the room at night.

And we can’t forget Santa! He’s peeking through in the corner.

Finally, our cozy couch sits below our banister which has been dressed in garland, ribbons, and pearls.

I hope you’ve enjoyed our living room tour! Next up will be the dining room (which you can see a sneak peek of in the photo above).

So how is your decorating coming along? Are you still adding the final few touches?

Happy Holidays!
