Blue And White Spring Cottage Decor Home Tour

| | | | | | | | | | |

Take my spring home tour filled with simple, inspiring cottage decorating ideas using cheery blue and white decor.

It’s finally spring and my warm weather loving self couldn’t be happier! The gloomy, gray skies of winter have gone here in North Carolina and the trees are well on their way to coming to life again.

As I am typing this, I’m sitting at the table in my breakfast room looking out the window at a wonderful blue, cloudless sky filled with glorious sunshine. In fact, it’s the beautiful blue of the sky that inspired me to incorporate blue into my spring decor this year!

If you’ve been following me a for a while, you may have already seen a peek at some of my spring decorations when I shared my cottage style spring breakfast room.

I’m working on a refresh for this room and was so inspired by a beautiful fabric I found, that it, along with the blue sky, set the stage for carrying blue and white throughout my entire home.

Let me show you around the rest of my home! We’ll start at my front porch, where I took a daring step and left my front door naked (aka wreath-less) for the season. Shocking I know, but I’ve been a enjoying a more pared down look around the house lately. haha!

We have a wide front porch with a pair of Adirondack gliders at each end where we love to sit and enjoy the scenery and birds flying in and out of the birdhouse this time of year.

The gliders were originally stained, but we painted them white recently, which completely changed the look of the porch and gives it the cottage decor style vibe that I’m working toward. I added blue and white outdoor rugs and some pretty pillows to create a cozy conversation area on each end of the porch.

I also added a new blue and white rug in the foyer, but pared down the amount of decor in this space. All I really need on the entry chest, other than the lamp, is a pretty blue and white planter filled with a faux fern.

I used to have two diy benches on one wall in my foyer, but I replaced one of them with this great basket filled with a few of the umbrellas that my mom collected over the years. The whole area says spring to me, plus I get a sweet reminder of my mom every time I go to my front door.

The blue and white decorations continue into the living room. I’ve added a few blue accessories to the entertainment center, the coffee table and added a few new pillows too.

Mixing patterns is one of my favorite things to do, so I’m especially in love with the Jacobean floral print pillows mixed with the large beige and white patterned pillow and the blue and white plaid!

My favorite leafy stems look great in a pretty woven blue outdoor planter (from HomeGoods) on the mantel. The height of the stems adds lots of interest and drama in a room like mine that has a two story ceiling.

You enter the breakfast room/kitchen from our family room. Because of the refresh I’ve been working on there are already some changes in here, but I still have several things left on my room-refresh-to-do list.

 

My biggest hold-up is the upholsterer. I want him to rework my chairs for me, but I can’t get in until sometime this summer, which is such a bummer.

From the kitchen, let’s go into the dining room where I’ve kept things on the pared down side once again. This room also sports a new blue and white rugBy the way, it can be tricky to use multiple rugs in rooms that open to one another. I actually wrote a post about that exact subject that you might find helpful.

You’ll notice that the artwork above my small gray chest has a bit of dark pink in it. I don’t really decorate with pink at all, but I thought it would be pretty to add just a tiny bit of it in the room for the spring.

I searched and searched for just the right pillows to use and was about to give up when I ran into these as I was leaving HomeGoods one day.

The only other pink in the room is the pink hydrangeas that I added to an arrangement on the sideboard. Even though I don’t normally decorate with pink, those little pops add lots of spring life to the room.

From the dining room we’ll go into our home office, where I added a few more blue and white pillows. The abstract artwork on the wall is one of my favorite pieces!

Our guest bedroom got a little blue and white sprucing up too. I’ll give you a little peek at it, but I’ll save the rest of the room for another day. winkwink

    Love the blue and white. I have just downsized to a new (to me) home, and I intend to use a lot of blue and white. Your painted pieces are beautiful; I especially love the blue chest in the foyer. Can you tell me if you painted these pieces? The finish is lovely. If you painted, what kind of paint did you use?
