Spring Fever Decorating Ideas

"Spring Fever Decorating Ideas"
Right after Christmas my husband and I were shopping at our local
Fred Meyer store and we saw this peacock...this one little purchase has turned
into a big transformation at our house...we both just feel in love
with the bright and vibrant colors...
so I've been busy doing some spring cleaning and decorating... and I've finally finished...
now all I have to do is the upstairs....well I'll do that tomorrow...maybe!
I had to have two!
We have really dark furniture and most of our
accessories were dark as well...so here are some of the simple changes we made
to brighten up our space!
We bought a new rug for the living room...our other rug was very dark...
and so were our pillows
 we got new pillows, new lamps and new wall art...this is the
picture we had up...I live in Washington where it rains almost every day...
so this picture had to go!
This is what we put up to replace it....
I got the set of 3 pictures at Target...
it's light and cheery!
We got these new peacock lamps...they are so pretty...
 at night the shades give off this really pretty soft blue glow...these
lamps I found online at Kirkland's on sale.
On this table and on the wall we had dark brown picture frames...so
we tossed those in the closet...and found this beautiful peacock clock, peacock candles,
the pretty leaf shaped bowl and glass balls at Pier One...
one of my favorite stores...
But my favorite thing is this clock...
my husband bought me the tin peacock on the table...
there's a spot for 3 tea lights.
These peacock candles are so pretty...don't know if
I'll ever light them though!
 Here's another picture we replaced...because it
just screamed fall...

 this one below is just so cheery and very inexpensive...
I got this one at Tuesday Morning!
Out of all the pillows we bought this one is my
favorite...I got all the pillows at Pier One!
 You can change a room with simple little inexpensive touches...I watched
out for specials, sales and clearance items...in the store and online...
the deals are out there...so go and find them...my husband and I
had so much fun shopping for everything...when we were done
it was find of sad...but I've already told him we have the
upstairs to do...with the response I got from him...I think I
had a little more fun shopping then he did!
We had a dark red picture here...we found this one at our Fred Meyer Store...
it too wasn't expensive...the peacock candles were purchased at Pier One!
I found this is a peacock display plate at Pier One as well!
This is the room where I hung my
DIY Easy Wall Hanging Flower Vase Project, that I shared on
my blog...and here's the link!
 We found these peacock plates at Marshall's...
they too were super inexpensive!
I had wine colored drapes in my dining room...so we replaced them for
these pretty plush teal colored ones...I got these at Pier One!
This tin peacock is also from Pier One
The weather here is very gloomy and sometimes you won't see the sun
for days...so adding bright and cheery colors to a room
is always a feel good idea!
We are so ready for summer, motorcycle rides and trips to the beach!
I cannot wait for sand, surf and sun!

Happy Decorating!
