Spring Living

Hello friends! I hope, as always, you had a wonderful weekend.

To my friends in the northeast, hope the snow has melted and your starting to see some green around.
The buds are everywhere where I'm at and I am so excited to see the blooms soon - my truly favorite time of the year, so perfect!

Anyway, because of the blooms, and because of my baby daughter, I wanted to add more pinks into our home! Here's what I came up with that might not scare off my boys too much... I hope... ;-)

Doesn't it remind you of spring?
I mixed in greens with pink to remind me of whats outside which I love

Did you notice my 'new' lucite pink grapes? I shared this find on INSTAGRAM HERE

Brought out my West Elm malachite boxes, added some faux moss rocks (From Dollar Store) and brought out one of my round bamboo tray (left-over from a gift basket), added some flowers and my 'new' brass elephant set!

I didn't change much over the piano, but I did add the cross (Wisteria score) and my bunnies! 

Aren't they cute?

I shared this already last week.

Just love my DIY Cherry blossom branches - the jumping off point for my Spring decor this year.
You can find the link on how I did them HERE

Sitting area got some blue and white too!

Added one of my basket tray (freebie from old gift baskets) again for some more natural elements

The other side of the room - nothing much exciting here, but still ties in to the entire 'spring scheme'

Got to showcase my small CRICKET BOX COLLECTION over at our Media Center. 

There you have it, Spring Living at our home. Do you think I came close to what's outside already?

On Thursday marks the start of ORC at Calling It Home, I'm joining in, hope you can follow along there too! And if your joining, I'm excited to see what you'll be doing as well! Let's cheer each other on in completing a room we can all be proud of!


Have a Great Week!



  1. Beautiful! All those spring colors make me happy and HOPEFUL that we will get some warm weather here in NJ! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. So pretty and I love your touches of pink, perfect.

  3. Vel, this is so lovely and spring-like!! I have never been a "pink" person, but I have become obsessed with pink tableware and just added a Pinterest board called "Pink"! I once had an much older, fashionable lady to tell me that, "pink is an old lady's friend". Love it and I guess I qualify now - lol! Apparently, it is a very young lady's friend, too. I know you are enjoying having little Sophia in your home.

  4. What a lovely home. So cozy and I am just loving your style. Wish ko lang, LoL*
    Sorry, dreamer lang po ang kababayan, mo ganda ha?

    God Bless you all.

    Greetings from Harare, Zimbabwe

  5. I think you brought the greenery and blossoms of spring inside perfectly with your pillows. Love 'em!

  6. Oh, Vel, how beautiful your home is! I love the addition of the pinks on your sofa and all around your beautiful living room! You have such style and every spot is decorated beautifully!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. Vel - I was just at West Elm last night. What a coincidence: I picked up a couple of malachite boxes. Haven't styled them yet, but seeing yours on the coffee table I'm gonna put mine there as well :)
    Looking great! xoxo

  8. Love your touches of spring, especially the moss rabbits! Now, if the weather will just get warm!

  9. Your home is looking bright and cheery, Vel! Love the green and pink accents. The pink grapes, moss bunnies and blue and white pieces are my favorites!

  10. Beautiful pretty Vel! I love the pink and green in honor of little Sophie, perfect for the Spring season!
    Your malachite boxes are gorgeous, I adore boxes for decoration around the house.
    I always say, you have such wonderful sense of style sweet Vel and I always love it!
    Sorry I haven't been around sooner, but I made another dinner party because hubby wanted to invite some of his school friends and their wives, so we were 14 again and so I cookes and cleaned to no end! I am exhausted, but he was so happy and so was I, though.
    Have a great week.

  11. Vel the pop of pink looks so pretty in here! I love how fresh and springy it feels with the green. Your pillow collection is amazing Vel. Good thing you have your decor storage closet downstairs!

  12. Hi Vel! I love the crispness of your spring colors. It's such a happy room! Jane

  13. So pretty, Vel! Pink and green has always been one of my favorite combos!

  14. I love the touches of pink: enough to make your room very feminine, but discreet so your boys can feel right at home!

  15. Hi Vel! I'm popping in to see you and thank you for popping in to see me. Happy Easter to you and your sweet family.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  16. Such perfect pops of pink, Vel!! It works beautifully with the green and your collection of blue and white!! I can't believe you found pink lucite grapes! :) So glad you're joining in the ORC, I'm anxious to see the nursery plans!
