Adding Some Spring...& A Giveaway!!


Spring has finally sprung!!  Well at least that is what my calendar is telling me.  I’m hoping Mother Nature gets the memo soon because I want warmer temperatures and blooming flowers ASAP!  Remaining snow piles be gone!!

To hold me over until that happens, I’ve decided it’s time to start adding spring trends into our home décor.  My go-to for spring decorating consists of a few things…pops of color, flowers and shine!  To me, nothing says spring more than these elements.  Luckily, to create a look like that in your home, you just need the simple addition of a few accents to already existing vignettes and rooms.  Pillows, candles, boxes, frames, flowers, succulents, throws or art can go a long way in transitioning a space.  A complete overhaul or spending a fortune just isn’t necessary to have your home looking on trend.

Nowadays I do most of my shopping online.  I don't have to leave the comfort of my own couch to access so many awesome stores like West Elm, World Market, Amazon and Home Depot.  While looking to spring-ify {totally a word} our home, I came across a few a few West Elm accessories I just couldn't get off my mind and quickly put them into my shopping cart.  Then I headed to Coupons.com to search for any West Elm coupon codes I could apply to my order.  After that it was time to check out and impatiently wait for my goodies to arrive!

Since my home has a whole lot of cool blues going on, I wanted to add some warm pinks and extra shine to energize our space.  Plus, nothing says spring quite like flowers...so when I spied a pair of gorgeous West Elm clearance candlesticks that mimic the bloom of a flower, I just couldn't resist.  I knew they'd look perfect paired with some colorful accents on top of the West Elm silver lacquered tray.  And to top it all off, I added a little DIY painting and fresh tulips.
