I enjoy changing up my home decor for the seasons. It makes things feel fresh and new and reflects the spirit of the time of year. It keeps me from getting bored with my home and helps satisfy my desire for unique and creative finds. This spring it is all about rustic woods combined with vintage style accents and green, pink and turquoise hues. It just feels like a rebirth to me which really does signify what spring is and means.
I have been considering redoing my entire dining room this spring, though normally I just change out decor items and sometimes paint colors. This year I would love to gut the entire room and start from scratch.
During the spring I spend time outdoors preparing my garden. I garden in raised beds made out of salvaged wood roofing boxes. The sun is on my skin and I’m warm and preparing to plant and enjoy something that feels kind of old fashioned – growing my own food. One day I’d love to be able to fully homestead, raising and growing all of our own food. My spring inspired dining room is a reflection of my passion for a sort of rustic farmhouse combined with a touch of what I call “modern retro” which consists of vintage style mixed with more modern materials.
A reclaimed wood dining room table with benches in lieu of chairs would be lit by a new light fixture and complimented by grey chevron curtains over my sliding doors. On the small wall next to the curtains would hang the monogram “G” for my last name. I would add vintage industrial bar stools for the breakfast bar with new timeless mini pendents suspended from above and an antiqued over-sized clock for the adjacent wall. A new reclaimed wood buffet would be topped with faux herb plants sitting in a galvanized metal tray. Above the buffet would hang a new rustic wine rack and on the side wall would hang the colorful rustic wood canvas art print. I would complete the table with turquoise dinnerware and a pink topiary as the centerpiece and tie everything together with a harvest colored rug.
