24 Ideas to Bring Spring to Your Home

 

Hello! Is this thing on? Hi, friends! Remember me? I’ve missed you! All is well here and around our house. I’ve been a little MIA (well, a lot MIA) here while I was juggling several projects that all were due in the same few week period of time. Crazy times.

Besides the big blog crash of 2018 (you may have noticed that the blog was literally MIA a few times, which gave me a bit of a fright), and organizing the Simple Organizing book launch (thank you all for your support!), I also was finishing up a new 60,000 word book manuscript (which I turned in last week, yay!) plus trying to deal with quite a few other projects and updates around the house.

Speaking of book writing, I’ve mentioned this before but writing a new book is a strange experience because the whole time I feel like I’m still talking with you, except you can’t hear me :)

Basically it’s like I’m talking to myself, so it’s good to be in a place where you can hear me again!

Tomorrow I’ll give you an update from my dining room (sneak peek at the top of the page).

As I was looking through some photos this weekend, I got inspired to do a little spring round up for today.

This is like a blast from the past, since I’m bringing together a few shots from my previous home and my new home, just for fun all in one post!

Master Bedroom Makeover – New Bed, Rug & Bedding!

Master Bedroom Makeover - New Bed, Rug & Bedding!

This post in partnership with

We made big progress on our Master Bedroom Makeover! Our new , bedding, and arrived and I’m so in love with it all.  You’ll even get a peek at our new shutters in this post, but I’ll come back another day to share more details on them.

If you’re new here and just catching up, we moved in to our house in Seattle about two and a half years ago. When we moved in, the small bedroom designated as our master had yellow walls. As cheery as it was, I was excited to paint our room and make it more cozy.

At first we choose a deep plum color that really made this little room feel like a cocoon. We LOVED it! Moving and remodeling is always such a long stressful process, was so nice to have a retreat that was safe and snug for the past two years.

But the time came where we were really make this space our own. We remodeled our kitchen top to bottom, knowing it would become the style setter for the rest of our home. I love when a house starts to come together and feel more cohesive as a whole. It’s always fun to see that happen!

My mom was ready for me to give her sleigh bed back (the one we’ve used for the past few years). I’ve had on my dream room board for a long time! I adore so many things about it. Besides the classic look and cane detail, it’s really the perfect scale for our little room (which is 12 x 14, I know some of you have asked the size!).

Our other bed was nice but it took up a lot more space visually, as it was curvy, bulky and dark. This one is much more streamlined with a straight headboard and footboard that fits in so nicely in the room. I also love that it is taller off the ground with daintier legs. It’s amazing how much more open it feels visually in the room now that we are able to see the nearly almost all the way under the bed.

The footboard is just high enough to keep our pup Lily from tumbling out of bed at night, but not so tall that Jack injures himself trying to take a flying leap over it. It’s really perfect!

I love that the wood and cane and the white and blue reflect the direction we’re going with our home. As our home continues to come together, we’ll have a subtle, clean but fun, relaxed coastal edge to every room (which we love and also makes sense with our location facing Puget Sound. Puget Sound is an inlet of the Pacific Ocean, and part of the Salish Sea.).

The bedding is fun wonderful, I love the subtle details such as fun pattern on the , the fringe on the , stitching on the , and tassels on the . And the whimsical Dhurrie is perfect! It lends softness, pattern and pulls the home room together. Also, the sheets are so deep I could actually fit them around my huge mattress without a struggle!

We feel great about our progress! There are still a few more things we plan to update and would like get done at some point (we’re still deciding on our mirrored closet doors, for instance), but I think we are at a good stopping point for the time being.

This room feels so serene, comfortable and welcoming!
