Our 2017 Spring Home Tour

2017 Spring Home Tour - www.stage-presents.com Welcome to Our 2017 Spring Home Tour.  I am always excited to invite you guys in to see the little changes that we have made through out the year.  I think that maybe I should admit that I just love seasonal decorating.  Even though I claim that Fall is my favorite season, and it is.  I had just as much fun decorating for Spring this year. We had a particularly mild winter,  but there is just something exhilarating about seeing all the fresh blooms popping up out the ground and knowing that the summer is on its way.

I don’t  go nearly as hard with my Spring decor.  I just try to add some color where ever I can.  In the front foyer, I simply changed out the flowers in my vase, and put a new Spring Printable in a frame.  Then, I added some fresh blooms to my Vintage Picnic Basket, and some Easter Eggs to the Wood Truck, for good measure.

The Family Room had been long overdue for a refresh.  So last year, we purchased a new sofa and love seat.  Then, we decided that the mantel could use a change too.  I am not sure that I would say this was definitely Spring Decor.  But, the blues and greens tie in with the changes sprinkled all around the house.

Our Spring Tablescape was very simple this year. I opted to use a lot of natural elements from the Wood Chargers to the Green Moss bunnies and the Egg Shell vases.  Even though it was probably the easiest tablescape I have done thus far.  I really love the way that it turned out.

In the kitchen, I didn’t do much.  Pulled out the Spring Kitchen Towels and I used two different cake plates and a Egg Wreath to create a Cloche Effect and a Centerpiece for the Island.

So there you have it. I truly love decorating our home.  And, lately I have found a lot of pleasure in using things we already have in our home to create new and interesting looks.   Hope you enjoyed your visit.  What are your favorite ways to decorate for Spring?  Share your thoughts in the comments below.

The 2017 Spring Must Have List

2017 Spring Must Haves

When I originally started writing this post, I was rejoicing over the mild winter we had here in Atlanta, and that we were already experiencing Spring Weather.  And then, almost as if Mother Nature was trying to spite me, we had two or three days of arctic weather (below freezing).  Thankfully, it only lasted for a few days and we are now, hopefully back on the right side of things, just in time for the official start of Spring.  So in addition to the great weather that Spring brings.. minus the rain, Spring means time to pull out your Spring wardrobe, and decide what needs to get dumped and what still has life.  And, it’s the perfect excuse for some retail therapy.

Statement Jackets:

As with every season the biggest part of successfully maneuvering the climate changes lies in your transitional clothing.  Those items that can seamlessly go from winter to spring or from spring to summer.  This year even more important than the sweater is the Statement Jacket.  Everywhere I look I see variations of this jacket from Bombers to Faux Blazers and even the Classic Leather Motorcycle Jacket.

Dresses, Dresses Everywhere – Feminine, Romantic, Edgy

This time of year tends to bring out the “springy”, playful side of fashion.  At least for me it does, after spending the winter layering and trying to keep warm.  Spring offers the opportunity to be free, show some skin and indulge in the sights and smells of the outdoors.  A super popular dress trend this year centers around the Feminine and the Romantic side of things.

Crop Pants:

Many moons ago, I used to love Culottes.  And, yes I know I am dating myself with that reference.  I am surprised to see them making a come back.  Though, I shouldn’t be because Fashion tends to Cyclical.  But, even better than the culotte is the Crop Pant.  It’s a way to feel like you are able to dress down by not wearing pants/slacks,  while still being both stylish and professional.
