Spring Fever at Home: Catch It!


The birds are singing! The sun is out who doesn’t love spring?!  I am always excited to change things around a little bit for each season here at home, even this little dish with our egg soaps tells the spring story and makes me happy! Here are a few easy ways to bring spring inside your home:

 1. Color it up.  Change the colors on display in your home. Love Robin’s Egg Blue?  A simple mat in bright color can make a statement on your walls. The picture below? It’s a Bird Coaster framed with a bright blue paper background. Surrounded by a bowl filled with little eggs, a blue vintage vase and a small decorative bird figurine and you have SPRING happening right there!

2.  Mix antique with new.  Fill your antique ironstone tureen with brightly colored eggs. Display it on a small stack of antique books, add a little wax French Duck, a wax nest and egg, and pop a bright Chartreuse egg in an antique blue & white teacup. Fresh. Charming. Beautiful!

Another version of the same vignette, just as lovely, it doesn’t matter how you style it, it’s the mix of texture and colors that counts!

Spring is the perfect season to take your interior design a little less serious. Vintage Egg Baskets are a great alternative to the more traditional shade for a lamp.EggBasketShadeBHG

4.  Think Green. Floral arrangements don’t always have to be flowers. This is a great time to bring that fresh green color inside. The leaves from a ruffle fern are stunning in a glass vase. Not only their color, but the graphic boldness of their shape make quite a statement, don’t they?

5.  Change Patterns.  Add some new pillows to your couch with a floral design, and it will instantly change your room!  Our Vintage Pillow Cases have always been a favorite to mix and match in any season, but for the spring they truly bring on their flower power.


6.  Think outside the box.  I love how this set of egg cups is used on a desk, to hold necessities and some bright flowers!

7.  Bring in softer colors.     Bring out the softer shades of color, our Love Bird Mugs and cafe au lait bowls bring spring to the table.

8.  Spring isn’t always Pastel! Add bright colors if that’s what you love. Here a simple arrangement of Daffodils in a glass vase filled with bright orange kumquats say spring just as much as a whole room full of pinks, light blues and soft yellows!

No matter what your style, Spring is the best time to celebrate where you live, and make it as beautiful as you can for yourself, your family and friends. It doesn’t take much to refresh your rooms.  I’ve gathered a small collection of one of a kind antiques and artist creations that will bring new joy and beauty to your home. I hope you enjoy feathering your nest!
