Lightening Up


Have you been ‘lightening’ your house for spring?

The best method for me is always the simplest-

a swap.


On the mantel , I swapped out accessories that looked too dark and too ‘wintery’.


I then looked for things with interesting shapes,

like the tureen from my recent thrift store excursion (with no lid),

and I removed things that looked ‘hot’.

What have you been doing to lighten things up in your home?

It looks very fresh and lovely. I need to do this soon but I am looking for that one main piece to pull it all together.

I love your white-scaped mantel,especially the boxwood ball and the monogrammed centerpiece. Beautiful.

I think white is perfect for spring and summer to lighten things up. I also like to add some green, as in living things. A little of the outdoors in.

I really need to do this. My mantle is wood with brick fireplace so lighter colors would make it look more refreshing. I love yours!
