A SPLASH of Spring

WISHING...WANTING...WAITING... for Spring to come. 

Well that darn little groundhog saw his shadow, so apparently I'll be waiting for about 4 more weeks...

This past summer you may recall reading my post Hitting it from all ANGLES, where I updated the look of my living room for PEANUTS on a random Saturday. 

Here is another layer I added recently with some vibrant spring inspiration.

Fuschia, Lime, Navy & Turquoise!

Just after Christmas I purchased these beautiful tufted club chairs from Overstock.

Complete with nailhead trim and tufts!

White resin canisters are the perfect touch needed to accessorize my mantle.

The turquoise bureau was a steal for $5 at a church tag sale.

Homemade navy and white chevron pillows with a turquoise back drop.

The brass lamp was a find for $10 at Goodwill. The lime damask floral pillows are napkins turned pillows--one of my little sneaky secrets!

I love the POPS of color!

I am on the HUNT for an oil painting with all the colors to put behind the couch.  

Or maybe an updated gallery wall. Stay tuned...

FAMILY friendly with a fresh twist!

While spring may be a few weeks away, you can find me here--sitting by the fireplace.

And the before, BEFORE:


  1. turquoise and lime are the perfect spring accent colors! they literally breathe life into the space

  2. I love the colors and mix of patterns you added in. Plus that $5 piece of furniture is just awesome! Great find!


  3. What a great job you did everything beautiful. I find it amazing how you find these little things for 5 dollars and then they look so expensive and everything just goes great in that room.


  4. I love the color scheme and patterns! I even thought the before picture was great! :)

    Love those chairs! My kitties won't let me have chairs like those.

  5. I bought this artwork for my turquoise/green/light yellow living room with dark brown couches. It was perfect.

    I love it.

    1. I like that too!
      Thanks for the tip.


Thanks for checking out my HUNT!
