Spring flowers& blossoms

The abundance of flowers blooming in the garden, on tree branches, and bushes make for easy cutting and gathering.  Every few days, I love to walk outside early in the morning and select one or two types of flowers to bring into the home to decorate.  Simple arrangements were often my preference.  Here are some ideas and ways to decorate with plum blossoms {top left},  lilacs {top right}, lilly of the valley {middle}, apple blossoms {bottom left}, and forget-me-nots {bottom right}.

Finding inspirations … in this Beautiful Hampton Cottage

. . .

It has been a while since our family room got a makeover. Over the course of the last year I have been brainstorming, redesigning, gathering and exploring different ideas for the space {approximately 16′ x 11′}.   This will be an on-going  project for me.  For now, I have narrowed down the colors for the room to mostly neutrals with splashes of color as accents {see the above picture}.  When I came across this Hampton cottage while browsing the internet, I instantly was drawn to it.  The house captured the feel of what I wanted for the family room and the colors used were similar to mine.  Finding inspirations for my project are always helpful to direct, guide and visually give me the sense of how something might be or look like… and this house did just that.  The interior designer, Jenny Wolf, created simple interior spaces yet elegant, cozy and definitely kid friendly.
