Spring Living Room Styling



I know that some of you are still freezing up north, but I do hope that you had a great weekend. Spring is on the way!

My husband and I have been slowly doing some Spring cleaning around the house (like pressure cleaning...ugh!) and I've been working on some styling in the living room...

My color accent of choice for Spring is aqua...what a surprise:~))


Playing around with the mantel after adding a faded teal pillow to the tufted sofa...

In the last few years I have taken all artwork down from the walls and prefer to just prop them. I've been considering doing that with the mirror over the mantel as well. What it reflects isn't great...track lights in the front entry that need replacing (hellooo honey:~)) and a ceiling fan smack dab in the center of the living room. 
Ceiling fans are a necessary evil living here in South Florida and I'd truthfully substitute each with a glittery old French chandelier if I had my way (which I don't)...

 Pretty propped painting...


Vintage French syphons and although you might not think "living room", I just love the color pop that they provide with the light pouring into this room during the day...


My weekly flowers from the market this morning included a full fluffy batch of creamy hydrangeas...


Another quick version of styling this mantel for Spring with an old window in place of the painting. Which would you leave up...I can't decide and would love to know your thoughts?


And yes...I am in love with dainty wax flowers and was thrilled to find some in the palest blush pink this week! Did you know that if you pinch the heads of wax flowers they give off the scent of lemon? 

In LOVE...with wax flowers...


I've been asked how I afford fresh flowers each week, and honestly I look for what is the lowest priced bunch and in season. They just add so much when you are doing a pared down look and in this room I spent just $9 for the florals seen...


Do you notice a few new updates to the layout of the blog?

I'll be back soon with a fashion post, so stay tuned for something so pretty!..
