Delighting in Decorating + Spring Mug Rack

Delighting in Decorating + Spring Mug Rack

 

When I put away the clean dishes after our brunch last weekend, I hung some of our new blue coffee cups on our mug rack. It made me so happy to see how springy the rack looked with this particular mix of mugs!

It’s such a small thing, but isn’t finding a bit of delight in your home what spring decorating is all about?

It’s the little delights like enjoying a mix of organic elements, seeing a green plant here or there, the joy of a refreshed color palette (whatever your favorites are), a room after some spring cleaning, lightening up all the winter layers, but it all adds up to US feeling refreshed and ready to head out into the SUNSHINE!

How are you bringing spring to your house?

PS. Thank you all for the sweet comments on our dining room and dishes! I know know about you, but after a season where I’ve been been exceptionally busy, I find it’s just so refreshing be able to do something simple like set a pretty table and sit down to enjoy it!

Dining Room + Mother’s Day Brunch

Dining Room + Mother's Day Brunch

This post is in partnership with

Can you believe Mother’s Day is only a couple of weeks away? What do you have planned? My family loves to make breakfast together, so we quite often make plans to host a brunch during the holidays. We had a family brunch on Easter and we’ll be having another one on Mother’s Day. But we don’t wait for special occasions to have brunch, any ordinary day will do!

We’ve been craving waffles forever, so this past week I seized a carefree morning to dig the waffle maker out from the basement. The girls were over and we didn’t have a big agenda so WOO HOO! it was a great day for pre-Mother’s Day brunch.

The week before, my girls and I had stopped in to to see what was new. I’m so glad we did! They have so many great things right now, but I have to say we were were OBSESSED with all the blue and white linens and table settings! It all spoke to us. So we filled up our cart and brought some of our favorites home. And it was perfect timing, we had so much fun setting the table for our brunch.

The mix of blues, whites and organic elements just feel so right for our table (and our house).

I have to tell you how much I LOVE the dishes!

The are the perfect size for so many of the meals we make these days (we used them for our yogurt bowls this time, but I know we’ll use them a lot. We love to make rice bowls with avocado, garbanzo beans, sweet potatoes and other tasties).

The are such a nice weight, I’m kind of picky about plates and I like them to be a bit heavier! These are winners, plus the soft colors and pattern make such a lovely statement on the table.

The wood handles on the , the , and centerpiece brought an organic wood vibe that I just love with the blue and white.

We found this really neat  at World Market for the center of the table. They also had some faux and that made it so easy to whip a centerpiece together (and yay for plants that don’t die).

These adorable little are so fun, they come with tight plastic lids so you can microwave or store them in the fridge.

The are my faves! We haven’t had great juice glasses for a long time. Again, it was the heavy glass and pretty details that won me over!

Now, let me tell you why these are SUPER special! They aren’t just gorgeous to look at, they are HANDMADE, you guys! I knew they were something extraordinary right when I saw them.

I love all of the new throw pillows for the banquette (and two navy velvet ones for the woven chairs).

As many of you have observed, we switched our dining room table and banquette to this side of the room before Thanksgiving.

I’ve shared a few photos of the room here and there, but I haven’t yet officially explained the change.  Our original plan was always to set up the table on this side of the room, just like this. Yet the only wall where our glass doored cabinet fit was on the shiplap wall, so it made sense to leave it there (while it was in the dining room) and move our table near the window for a closer view of the backyard.

We really liked the cozy feel of the banquet and table under the window, but I still felt like the ideal was to have the table on the other side of the room.

I also had a vision for quite some time of the glass doored cabinet being in our bedroom, to make it feel more cozy library-ish.

You know how sometimes it’s you might hesitate to try something that is not the norm, because you feel like it might be “wrong” or at just not be the right choice? Well, I finally told myself…”self, stop over-thinking and go with your heart. :)” Just to be safe we measured the cabinet and found it was the perfect size to fill the bedroom wall! And voila! My heart was right. I love it there.

And so that change opened up the wall space so we could flip the banquette to the other side of the dining room, putting the table in the spot where I originally envisioned it. It’s so nice when your furniture starts to find it’s way to the best spot for it!

Speaking of furniture finding its true home, I’ve been dreaming about ways to rearrange the living room. :)

Anyway, we had such a great brunch with our family this weekend (and loved setting up a pretty table for it!). We’ll for sure be having another brunch for Mother’s Day in just a couple of weeks! I hope you feel inspired to host a Mother’s Day brunch at your house, too.
