spring forward

When March hit last week I was all, “yay, spring is here!”  Then the clocks changed by one hour and I had to wake-up mid-dream in the pits of darkness and drive my carpool shift.  Running out the door, desperately behind without a minute to spare, I reached for my trusty cup of sanity coffee only to find our auto coffee maker was delayed by an hour.  And no time to wait for it to brew.  Nooooo!  At that moment I was all, “#!@&# spring is here.”

But seriously, I love, love, love spring.  Makes me think of fresh greens, preppy duds, and crisp breezes.  And what is spring without fresh flowers?  When I think of a spring-inspired home, I go straight to this dreamy home, complete with ponies and a bunny garden.  I believe this wall covering is custom by de Gournay.

How would you like to grow up in this happy place?  I would love it.

I love the use of turquoise and blues in the girls room above, so bright and cheery.  You could achieve a fun punch of this happy color at a fraction of the price, I like this Thibaut chinoiserie wallcovering.

Here’s an example of how fun a chinoiserie can be in a girl’s room. The headboard fabric is by Quadrille.

Keeping the springy turquoise color, you could try this one on the walls for a modern spin.  This pattern could be FUN – even on one wall behind two twins or a day bed.

Hope your week is running smoothly and you’ve had a glimpse of spring.  I need a few more days to catch up from the time change, but I’m so happy to see the sun and warmer days!
