Spring has finally arrived to our little corner of Ontario, Canada! Here’s my spring farmhouse home tour for 2019! Come on in!
I’ve been slowly adding touches of spring around the house as the snow has been melting around us and I’ve been sharing updates over on Instagram. I thought it was time that I put together a proper home tour as well! If I’m being honest, my decor went a little springy as soon as the Christmas decorations came down, so I just added a little bit more here and there. With Easter right around the corner, I thought I could allow myself to start bringing out a few of the bunnies and Easter eggs too. Kennedy will be away visiting her aunt on the other side of the country for Easter this year, so I definitely want to make sure she feels like she has a full Easter season at home, even if she won’t be here for the big egg hunt. We love Easter around here! 🙂
Spring Farmhouse Home Tour: Our Mudroom
This room wasn’t quite finished at this time last year, so this is the first time I got to decorate this room for spring. I love the way all the spring greenery and flowers really stand out against all the grey and the brick in here.
Spring Farmhouse Home Tour: The Dining Room
I almost always concentrate our holiday-themed decorations in this part of the house. It’s really right in the middle of everything, so it makes sense that way. It’s also the room where we sit together as a family if we’re going to be having any special holiday meals with just the four of us, or if we’re doing a family game night. It’s fun to make this area of the house a little extra festive, and the decorations don’t really get in the way of any of our regular daily activities.
Spring Farmhouse Home Tour: The Other Mudroom
We love our mudrooms! 🙂 To be fair, we do have enough mud to necessitate extra mud-catching space in our house. This mudroom is off the back door in our master bedroom and it comes in handy for gardening in the backyard in the spring or for when we head out to take the dog for a walk along the creek. We actually built this mudroom first, so it came in really handy as a main entrance while we were building the front mudroom last year!
We also have this master bathroom right off the back hall mudroom. We completely gutted this room a few years ago and we ended up with something we really love. You can see the (slightly scary) before and after pictures here: Master Bathroom Before and After.
So that’s how things are looking around here this spring. Or this early spring, rather. We have quite a few little projects going on around here and I’m hoping that we’ll have made some pretty great updates in our home by the time spring is done!
