Spring Decor: {Bringing the Outdoors In} – Whimsy Girl

Carly here!

I am not going to lie, the only sign of “outside life” in my home is a vase of mostly-wilted flowers in the center of my kitchen table. I clearly need some inspiration! My daughter Kelsey enjoys bringing the “outdoors in” in the form of worms and bugs. She spent a solid hour of her afternoon digging around in the dirt for a sign of life. I distracted her with the plea to help me make some cookies instead, and that brought her indoors. (It is a small comfort to know that baking will trump entomology in her mind.) But I digress…

Blogger Whimsy Girl Design dedicated an entire post on bringing the “outdoors inside” for some spring revitalization! And there was no mention of worms in the entire post. Check it out here.


 

I am so excited for spring! We are finally getting a dose of warmer temperatures here in Texas!  I am hoping we are done with winter and can move onto warmer days, sunny skies, blooming plants and lots of patio time!

Over the last few weeks, when I was stuck at home due to ice, I had a lot of time to decorate for the warmer season ahead!  I love using greenery and natural elements throughout my home to add interest to the neutral color scheme.  I do not have a green thumb, so I opted for a lot of faux ferns, rustic wood pieces and greenery sprigs.  I love bringing the outdoors in and creating a natural, serene environment.
My home is full of vintage pieces mixed in with newer items.  I love the look and adding pops of green through the plants was a good way to balance the vintage/industrial look in our entryway!

In our dining room, I added some faux fern sprigs to my bottle collection.  I love the pop of color the bright green adds!
