It feels a little silly to use the word “spring” right now since we have been hit with about 3 ft of snow in the past 4 days, but just about this time every year I start getting the itch for spring. When the sun starts to stay out just a bit longer, and the temps start to rise above 30 degrees. Here in New England we are known for our long winters, so I like to beat the winter blues by adding fresh flowers, and that’s just what I did to add some spring touches in the mom cave.
It really doesn’t take much to freshen up this space. I think that’s one of the benefits of having a neutral space. Adding different throw pillows and fresh flowers and the room instantly looks like it’s freshened up for the new season.
When I want to add color, navy blue is my first go-to. In fact I actually miss it when I don’t have it in a space. The added bonus is it’s my husbands favorite color, which makes him turn a blind eye to all the white! I had been crushing on these indigo shibori throw pillows from Pottery Barn for a bout a year now, and decided to finally pull the trigger on them, and I’m so glad I did!
I love the pop of color they add to the space, and muted pattern gives it interest without making it too busy for me. I also brought up my faux fiddle leaf fig, which helps add some much needed green to the space. Especially since there is no green outside.
I grabbed the most gorgeous bunch of garden roses from Whole Foods, along with 3 variations of ranunculus in different shades of pink. I placed them in a tall thrifted milk glass vase and didn’t worry about arranging them too much. I just wanted them to rest in their natural state. Seeing them makes me anticipate spring that much more!
I love this space so much, and now that it resembles spring a little bit more than winter, it’s so much more refreshing to be in.
I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you how I finished the pedestal table in this space to get the perfect weathered look!
