In Preparation For Spring

In a couple of weeks my mom is coming to visit.  This is exciting, because I love my mom, but the thought of an impending visitor has me wanting to make some touch ups to my home.  And with spring just around the corner, what’s better than a punch of color?  The only thing is, I am not looking for crazy color, just a bit- cause I LOVE my neutrals.  Unfortunately I’ve been unsure how to do this, so I have scoured the internet for inspiration.  And if you are looking for a bit yourself, check out the images below.

I love how the colorful blanket takes the grey room from winter to spring.

I love this piece from Nicole Cohen of Sketch 42.  Using artwork as a pop of color is a simple fix to an otherwise drab interior.

Between the flowers and the beach scene this scene will quickly make you forget about winter!

A few new accessories in the kitchen like the above pitcher, will get you in the mood for lemonade on the porch and a breeze in your hair.

Sometimes all you need to do is let in the light and a room that’s become dreary will suddenly have new life.  Of course accessories like flowers and citrus probably help as well.
