FOURTEEN IDEAS TO STYLE YOUR HOME FOR SPRING

Bring a fresh Spring vibe to your decor with a mix of blue and white pattern and texture.Welcome to our Spring dining room! Today I’ve joined up with a fabulous group of inspiring bloggers to bring you ‘Fourteen Ideas to Style Your Home for Spring’! Don’t miss the full lineup of the tour at the end of my post. I’m so excited for the warmer temperatures to get here – we had a huge snow storm this week and it seems like Winter just has no end in sight! I’ll pretend it’s Spring for now, from inside my dining room today…If you’re joining me for the first time, and coming over from my fabulous friend, Summer’s home from Summer Adams Design, welcome to CitrineLiving! I hope you enjoy the tour of our dining room today and I’d love it if you’d stick around!Bring a fresh Spring vibe to your decor with a mix of blue and white pattern and texture.Last Spring, I shared my dining room with a blue and white theme as well (which happens to be my favorite combo, by the way) – with a strong nod to an outdoor garden, using my favorite Chinoiserie ginger jars and faux blooms as the focal point. This year, my take on my favorite color palette is influenced more with a global sensibility – ikat print dishware and layered linens, exotic print pillows mixed in with my ginger jars and chinoiserie dishes. You can see last year’s setup here – if this is your first time visiting, then you’re in for a surprise, since I’ve changed quite a bit in this space since then. Feel free to click here to see the full transformation. PS – did you notice Oscar, our bunny sleeping under the settee in the above shot? This is his favorite space to hang out, so keep your eye open for him! He’s often around somewhere when I’m shooting pics.Spring decor - a fresh mix of blue and white pattern and texture is perfect for the season.I often love to layer my tables with pattern, texture and different linens. I use different items as well in lieu of tablecloths – a piece of fabric, scarves, or in this case, a curtain panel as the base of my tablescape.Bring a fresh Spring vibe to your decor with a mix of blue and white pattern and texture.I picked up a gorgeous set of curtains that I’ll be using often on my tables this Spring and Summer, I’m sure. You don’t have to stick to what you may think is typical – think outside of the box and be creative when you’re designing a table – look around your home as well, you’ll be able to find something I’m sure! Make it personal and unique to what you love – give your guests something to smile about!

    I am so happy to have found your blog. First, I’m a bit over the Rustic/Industrial/Farmhouse decor style that everyone seems to be decorating with. You have a designer look that appeals to my style sense. While I can appreciate some aspects of all design styles, I just can’t live with spaces that incorporate a theme, if you will. Thank you for sharing your talent and style for those of us who just can’t take another post with distressed furniture, Farmhouse signage and all that comes with it. By the way, I love your grey/black interior doors. I am in the process of borrowing that look for our doors as well. I can’t wait to see what you share next!

      Denise, I am so happy you found my blog too! While I can certainly appreciate farmhouse style and many aspects of it, I definitely prefer something a little more personal…I usually stick to what I love and just figure out how to make it work! I’m so happy to hear you’re painting your doors black! You will be so happy you did it! This color is Cracked Pepper by Behr, if you’re looking for a reference. Thank you so much for stopping by to say hello, I truly appreciate your kind words!

    Tamara,
    Ok, I made it through the list and your home is such a delight! Oh my goodness, your dining room is so stunning that I studied every photo! You are a master with decor and light. I love all your choices and your mom’s painting is so incredible. It reminds me of the Picasso portrait of Poet/Writer George Sands. I think it is the color palate that is similar. Anyway, thanks for joining us and this has been a great group tour! Hang on for another great monthly blog post! And, a big hello to Oscar!!!
