If you checked out our February checklist last week, you read about some exciting home improvement projects we started tackling this month. There’s still lots to do on the renovation side of things, but Lindsay did check off a fun re-decorating project in her home this past weekend. Check out how she transformed her open hutch in the dining area for the third (yes, third) time.
Chris and I like to put away our Christmas décor in stages. “Clearly Christmas” goes away first, and wintry things like fir trees and candles stay out a little longer. Now that we’ve removed some of the winter décor, we wanted to give our dining area a fresh look that would take us into spring and summer. We absolutely love how it turned out! Check out the details below!
We have been looking for a sign like this forever, so you can imagine our excitement when we walked into Michaels and saw this beauty waiting to be bought. We affixed it to the wall to give it a bit more height and prominence.
I really like groupings in shelf decor, so I did it on the top and middle shelf with the white bowls and the stack of books. The clear glass jars on the bottom shelf were a last-minute find and were too cute not to add to to the mix.
We also wanted some functionality in the design, and the tiered serving tray on the bottom shelf will be perfect for dinner parties. Anything that's too pretty to be stashed away in a cupboard is a win for me and I love how the tin material ties in with the sign on the top shelf.
We knew we wanted to incorporate some greenery into the design to pop against the neutral tones. We opted for faux to ensure zero maintenance. (And if you've checked out our Instagram stories you know I don't have the best track record with plants!)
The large white tin was a Pier 1 find. Besides just being really pretty, it added some height to that side of the display.
We're loving the transformation and are pretty confident this look will be in our home for quite some time...until inspiration strikes once again!
What's your design style? Is it constantly evolving?
