Spring it Up!

Well can you believe Spring is upon us?!  I love love love it!  We have finally had quite a bit of rain in our area and things are blooming like crazy.  Our highways are covered in bluebonnets,  the grass is greener than it's been in a long time and when the weather is this awesome people are just happier don't ya think?  

If we weren't in such a temporary living situation right now I would be very tempted to spring up our casa a lot more.  (I must admit as much as I like decorating it has been kind of nice to be in this temporary state of mind..aka...don't buy a thing we don't really need for the house because we don't have room and truth be told we don't NEED it)  So I will live vicariously through "pretend" decorating via the wide world of web;)

So in order to get some spring decorating out of my system I contributed a spring moodboard to the Zinc Door Spring Color Design contest on Olioboard.


and here is what I came up with...

I tried to keep it doable for almost anyone's current furniture situation by taking really neutral furnishings and just changing up the accessories to make a really fun and springy living room.  Even if you have little to no budget I think you could put this together.  I can picture taking some green paint to a jute or sisal rug, spray painting some fun funky old lamps, and adding some bright pillows.  I would love to see this room everyday when I get home!  Would you?

If you like this room it would tickle my fancy (is that something naughty?  If it is ignore it...I get my sayings all mixed up;) if you would click on my "Spring it Up" board above and vote for it in the Zinc Door Spring contest.  Purty Please!!!
