It’s All About The Green – Spring In My Breakfast Area

| |

I am bringing in fresh pops of green to my breakfast area!

Keeping It Green - Spring Farmhouse Breakfast Area  graphic.

The official start of spring is on the horizon and I’ve decked out the open shelves in my breakfast area in green to celebrate the season!  Of course, I kept it super simple by pairing the black and white dishes that I already had with a few fresh green dishes and mugs from the dollar store.  No matter the time of year, black, white and green is one of my favorite color combos.

I added my closed terrarium filled with a birdhouse, a couple of nests and a chippy concrete bird.  That birdhouse was originally painted with Christmas colors, but I gave it a coat of white spray paint and covered the roof with some stick-on moss.

I only needed to add two green mugs to my mug tree for an bit of an accent.  You can see that I’ve layered a couple of different shades of pretty green plates in the toolbox with my other plates.  By using what I already own, I was able to only spend $6 for a fresh does of spring in my breakfast area!

The spring centerpiece for my kitchen table couldn’t possibly be any easier!  All I used were three potted pink flowers from the grocery store lined up in a wicker tray.  You might remember these from the very special weekend that we had here a couple of weeks ago

I love the pop of bright color that they add to the room!

  60. Kalanchoe is a great choice. Sturdy yet sweet!

  61. I’m loving the green additions; so crisp and clean! I really like the way you keep the majority of your decor and change it with just the addition/ subtraction of a few accessories. I’m trying to learn and abide by this technique.

  62. Darla Arnold says:

    I also like a color with black and white. I look forward to the first signs of spring each year, Michigan has such long winters. Your blog is a welcome escape and you have a lovely home.
