Spring Decor Refresh: Inspiring Blue

Spring décor refresh might ring a bit cliché
in blogland, but for me, it is quite the opposite…

SPRING symbolizes RENEWAL and
is nature’s reminder to the earth that
HOPE is ALIVE,
NEW GROWTH is possible,
ALL THINGS are BECOMING NEW,
and
the GREAT SKY ABOVE
invites us into
BLUE TRANQUILITY.

Do you love the month of May as I do?

All of May’s birdsong, greening, and its
doorway to balmy temperatures
thaw my wintry heart and attune it
to
POETRY.

I enjoyed the outdoors today and had a chat with this swan,who was too busy swanning to appreciate the brilliance of poet Mary Oliver.

“Ropes let down to the lost”
resonates with my tender heart,
and should you feel a little lost
at this moment, I pray you will
allow SPRING’s magic and mystery
to lead you back to where you belong.

Spring Refresh for me means organizing the closets

and drawers, getting into those cobwebby corners

and investing in new pillows and linens.

Whether it’s French blue, denim blue, or chambray,

I love wearing and accenting with blue!

Blue is reminiscent of the sky, sea, my

children’s eyes, and my favorite butterfly

with whom I spent quality time just today…

Garnet Hill sent over this beautiful
Blue Moon Quilt and Sham,
and it’s a handsome spring refresh
in our farmhouse-y bedroom
with its romantic
French Country feel.

What I love?
The slubbed cotton center panel
looks and feels like vintage linen,
and hand-stitched details are
like little x kisses on blue moons.

Have a look:

It’s those subtle details and the care
taken to make something new feel
soft and just a bit timeworn that
make all the difference.

I also love how the quilt casually mixes
with neutrals and any color just like
my favorite jeans.

Below is my go-to uniform in spring:
pintuck linen shift dress, timeworn blue jeans,
and hat and necklace if I’m feelin saucy.

A sophisticated, interesting blue paint color I blogged
about (Inchyra Blue) might be of interest.

The vignette below is fine with its
faded lovelies, but add a little
blue bliss, and…

Voila.

Do you have a room or piece of furniture

you are thinking about painting blue?

Look at this kitchen with its

glorious blue cabinetry and maybe

be inspired by Farrow & Ball’s

color, Light Blue.

And calling all DIY artsy chicks…
