I’m teaming up with 13 other bloggers this week to bring you some amazing Spring Home Tours. Seriously, Monday and Tuesday’s features were so good. If you missed them, don’t worry, I’ll link to them at the bottom of this post!

To be honest, when the subject of doing a Spring House Tour was broached, I was hesitant. I’m definitely not a seasonal decorator. I love the ideas of what other people come up with for seasonal decorating, it’s just not me. So, I wasn’t sure if I would be a good fit for a “Spring Parade of Homes”. But, then I got to thinking about what I do love about Spring/Summer. I love lighter walls and plants. I love clean/minimal spaces but spaces that evoke a feeling of family. So, I’m going with those things today and those things to me mean Spring.

Luckily for me, the areas I’m showing are bright and Spring-like (good thing, I wasn’t asked to participate in a fall tour – lol).

Let’s start with our front porch.

Front Porch with house numbers and DIY Rug

We recently added the DIY house numbers and concrete planters. Both of those really help add some interest.

Front Porch with bunting and DIY wreath and rug

The fabric bunting was a quick little project. I had never made a fabric bunting before this one (what is wrong with me?). The wreath, my hubby made from the tutorial on Vintage Revivals.

Large succulents on front porch

I had lilies in the pots last year, and I needed something that was easier this year. Extra-large succulents fit the bill.

In the formal dining room, I set a glass inside of a larger vase and stuck some flowers in it. I love how easy and simple it is and I think I will just keep clipping flowers to place in there all summer.

We just finished our master bedroom and I think it has the perfect spring feel.

Adding the plants with the texture of the DIY bamboo shades really make the room spring-like and homey.

    Gorgeous, Ashley! I love the springy vibe you have year round. I’m definitely with you on not being a seasonal decorator :) – it’s fun to add light and bright touches though for the season!

    I just LOVE your master bedroom! I’ve done a couple Easter / spring projects but I often wonder where people find the time and money to go all out to decorate for a few months of the year. :)
    I’m your newest Instagram follower!

      Thanks Jen! I’m right there with you on the money and time for the projects. But, I would probably have the money and time if I wasn’t busy renovating a house (that still had dated wallpaper in rooms). Maybe, I will change my tune in a few years when I get the house to reflect us more? Hmm, not sure. Glad you have you following.
