Touch of Spring 2017 Farmhouse Tour

A special hello to you readers coming from Cheryl's place at Tidy Mom.  Her family room is Spring time perfection if I do say so myself!  If you haven't visited please check it out, I'll be right here waiting.

Back in the Northeast we're in anticipation mode, it's an itch I want to get after and Spring always seems to slowly crawl it's way into town.  In hopes of coaxing the season along I've teamed up with 24 bloggers to share our Spring home tours, there's so much yummy inspiration and styles you can achieve so let's dive in.

I'm starting in the Family Room with few fresh and colorful touches to our normal neutral farmhouse style.

I believe every room possible is represented in the home tours so you'll want to stay awhile and browse around at all the homes.  A special thank you to April at House by Hoff and Krista at The Happy Housie for organizing this tour.

Judging by the little photos above I'm seeing a trend of floral and green for this Spring!
After you take a quick look below be sure to stop over at Jen's blog at House of Wood.  She lives in Texas where it's already Spring temps and her place is so gorgeous you'll want to move in!

I added this bright floral wreath to my wood planked wall quilt and wham we have a winner!  It's a match made in heaven between the wood tones and pretty little pale yellow flowers.

More flowers on the table in cedar boxes I whipped up from scraps.  Add some bright green throw pillows and a colorful blanket and it's officially Spring in the family room.

Moving from the family room into the kitchen I styled up the open shelving with more bits of green:

Green and white dominate here.  I first filled these shelves up three years ago when I built and installed them and this is the first time I have really refreshed the styling since then! #badblogger

I can honestly say these shelves are the most functional and keep all the necessities at hand without letting in the clutter.  And now they are bright and cheerful with new Spring napkins, green bowls and my mini wheelbarrow full of fruits.

From the kitchen we will end up in the Master Bedroom at the mantel.

I know what you're thinking - St. Patrick's Day.  And that's fine because it's a Spring holiday but honestly I had this giant green gingham idea in my head for days and I just couldn't shake it.

In real life the green paint is a classic kelly green and not that bright but somehow when I photographed it the green just kept popping.

How fun to wake up to green gingham every morning?  I'm calling it farmhouse meets Spring gingham and it was such an easy project - I shared the tutorial here but it's the same method as my master bathroom walls in 2 1/2" squares.

I framed out the gingham in stained 1x2 and then gathered a few more bits of neutral decor to accent the mantel.

I hope you enjoyed the touches of Spring in my farmhouse.  Fingers crossed the weather will cooperate and bring some milder temperatures soon!
