Hydrangeas

I love Spring. I love when the weather gets warmer and summer is just around the corner. I especially love taking walks after work with Matt and looking at all of the flowers in full bloom. Although, tulips are still my favorite flower... I think hydrangeas have to be a very close second. I LOVE how big they get and how vibrant their colors are! I dream about having a back yard full of hydrangea bushes like this one day (and front garden with tulips of course).

But until the day when I have a back yard all to myself, I am just going to have to decorate with some hydrangeas inside my house!

Hydrangeas of ANY color make for GREAT interior accessories:

I love how easy it is to use a few hydrangeas to fill a vase on a table.... or use a big bundle of them to fill a large bucket or planter like this one.

I am loving this arrangement of hydrangeas AND tulips. :)

I Spy.... Poppies

With Spring approaching I am so excited for the flowers to start blooming! Nashville does a great job of planting tons of flowers around downtown (I'll make sure to take some pictures this year). One of my favorite flowers are poppies. I love the mix of pink, orange, yellow and coral that they bring. I would love to be able to have fresh poppies on my table this Spring... but unfortunately they are not so easy to come by.

But just because poppies are not super common in the grocery store, doesn't mean we can use their color for inspiration!

This is a great punch of color.

If you need a subtle way to add a pop of color, try trading out some of your matting in photo frames. That way you can still have some color, but still keep the frames neutral and surrounding furniture neutral.

This is cute how they coordinated the comforter, lamp shade, Roman shades, book and even the slippers!

Peek-a-boo pantry! I am also a big fan of colored chalkboard paint like they have used here. Who says chalkboards have to be black anyway?

Poppies go so well with so many colors, I am liking the gold accents and light blue in this room.
