Touches of Green: {Transitioning into Spring}

This time of year I always get spring fever.  Living in Texas, we have some crazy weather.  Today it is 32 degrees while yesterday it was 70 degrees.  Those warm days make it hard not to go into full spring mode! 

To get me through the rest of the cold days, I made a few simple changes to my decor.  These simple changes don't scream spring, but they do add a pop of green in anticipation for the warm months and the new season ahead!

In our reading nook, this fern is the perfect addition to add a pop of color, as well as texture, to this space.  The lamp, the antlers, the glass and jute globes and wood tray are all from Home Goods.  I think the glass globes add a coastal touch and will transition nice into the spring and summer months!  The antlers and wood tray give it a touch of rustic to balance the look.


In our breakfast nook area, I added some faux ferns to the shelves.  It is amazing what a difference these two additions make to the overall feel of the room!  I love the new look.

On my kitchen island, I styled my three-tiered wooden stand from Home Goods with faux artichokes and a faux plant to continue the touches of green.  I love the contrast created with the white ceramic pieces and glass mason jars.  All these items combines create a clean, fresh look in the kitchen
I am hoping these small touches will get me through the cold days because I am sure ready for the warmer months.  What about you?


  1. Lovely. Time for some "green" around here too! All this snow is getting old!

    1. I bet! We haven't had any so far all winter, which is odd for the area! Stay warm!!

    2. I have been doing the same thing here in Florida! Last week the fireplace was going almost non stop and yesterday we turned on the AC! I always love adding greenery to my home in the spring.

  2. So ready for warmer weather. 12 inches of snow here now.
