Here's How to Style your Home for Spring!

Thank you Kirkland's Home for sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions are mine.

The built-ins are done! Ok, so 90% finished but potato-patato okayyy? Not only are they finished but they're looking all cute for spring thanks to Kirkland's Home. Here's a peek (full reveal coming soooon!) and my top tips for transitioning your home to spring!

First, here's the overall look. I'll link the tutorial we used at the end but suffice it to say, it was worth all the time it took to build it. It's not perfect but we did that! We wanted form and function- lots of hidden storage and a place to display pretty things. Done and done! As you can see, they aren't fully styled (saving that for the reveal) but you know I couldn't wait to get started...

Clearly still very much a work in progress as we await our backordered light fixture.

Spring feels like the perfect time to outfit a new space and Kirkland's Home made it SO easy! Their spring arrivals are gorgeous, affordable, and on-trend. I love that you can find so  many dupes from more expensive retailers and they are just as beautiful. And there's literally always something new. While I don't seasonally decorate in an obvious way, there are some things I do to welcome a fresh beginning- a feeling I love. 

5  Tips to Transition your Home to Spring:

First, I use natural fibers that give coastal vibes- the clay bowl with seagrass handles, the wooden knot sculpture and mango wood riser in driftwood tones, and the large light wood mango bead rope garland for example.

Secondly, I use sachets in summery scents. I love to toss one in a bowl or hide it behind a basket. It adds a subtle spring feel and unlike a candle, you don't have to remember to blow it out. As a side note, I love keeping them in the car too! 

Next, I choose art with a water element- the beach, the lake, etc. It makes me think of travel and fun spring and summer vacations. This Beach Dunes art was under $20 on sale and has a pretty texture to it.

Fourth, I use pastel colors- a lot of people use blue and green, which is cool but I am a fan of tans, ivories, and pinks. This terra cotta vase is perfect for spring. 

Finally, and obviously, use faux (or real) florals and plants. This fern is SO realistic! I've realized over the years that I have a low tolerance for fake plants. This one passes every test!

Here are more of my favorite finds (linked below). I've seen the white chair in person and it's so good!

The built-ins still need hardware and sconces but I cannot wait to show you even more! We built the built-ins nearly the same as we built these so check out that tutorial if you're interested. Stay tuned for the full room reveal!
