SPRING HOME TOUR WITH VIBRANT YELLOWS AND PRETTY BLUES

It’s finally Spring and it feels so good having longer days doesn’t it? I love the coziness of Fall and Winter, but nothing beats the fresh, crisp air of Spring. There’s nothing quite like the easy feeling of the warmer months, and because Spring symbolizes newness and growth, it’s always such a meaningful time of year. I love to bring a fresh feeling into our home with my Spring decorating, and although our home has a very casual style, it’s nice to reinforce that feeling with more laid back styling around our home. I’m so happy to be joining up with a fantastic group of very talented bloggers, as we all open our homes to showcase our Spring decor for the Spring has Sprung Blog Tour. I want to extend a very big thank you to Sheila of Maison de Cinq for hosting, she is a sweetheart and her home is just beautiful! If you’re new here and hopping over from Annie’s gorgeoues home of Zevy Joy, welcome to CitrineLiving! I’m thrilled to have you and I truly hope you enjoy your stay! Welcome back as always if you join me regularly – I love to have you all here and share our home with you! This is a rather long post today, I haven’t done a big tour since the Fall, and well, today is a big one. Lots of images to share with you, so please bare with me! At the very bottom you can find all of the amazing bloggers joining me, please don’t forget to visit each one for incredible style and design inspiration. Please come on inside, and let me show you our home this Spring! I’ll try to keep my words on the short side since I have so many shots to share today.  *Affiliate links are provided in this post for your shopping convenience – see my full disclosure policy here.Elegant Spring decorating using pretty blue and vibrant yellow accents along with real and faux florals to help bring a sophisticated yet relaxed feel to your home.Elegant Spring decorating using pretty blue and vibrant yellow accents along with real and faux florals to help bring a sophisticated yet relaxed feel to your home.We’re starting in our newly made over entryway today, and if you’re new then you haven’t seen the transformation!

I usually have the same items on this built-in shelf, and I will rotate a few things here and there. It’s a fun addition that we added a couple of years ago and it’s a great spot to showcase my favorite pieces.

    Thanks you for not being the stereo typical bland white farmhouse style that is boring me to death on just about every decorating blog. I love all the color. Very classy and tasteful yet homey and comfortable looking.

      Hi Cindy, thank you, I am thrilled you like all of the color! We are loving it too and it feels so good in here! Although I have to say I love white farmhouse style just as much too! I used to be all about neutrals (not so much farmhouse necessarily) and then slowly I started to crave color again! I truly appreciate your kind words, thanks for stopping by! Happy Spring :)

    Tamara,

    I really enjoyed your Spring House Tour (got to it from Jamie’s blog). Your home is lovely and your decor creativity is so refreshing. The denim blues in all shades have been a favorite of mine for years, also the blue and white china pieces (have a bunch of these and use them everywhere) and the yellow touches just make the rooms zing! The beauty of a basically white/neutral color scheme like your’s is the ability to use different accent colors to totally change the look. I look forward to viewing future posts.
