A touch of spring in the bedrooms

I haven't done too too much decorating for spring this year on account of the bathroom and the bunnies are looking at me through their plastic boxes because I haven't let them come out to play this year yet. I have taken away all the dark fur blankets and pillows in our bedrooms upstairs and done a little *refresh* to make the rooms feel lighter for the coming months. A little tour of the details for you today.

on the chair: blanket is apart of Threshold collection from #target, pillow fabric is Sanderson Angel Fern charcoal colour way. (i have more of this and it will be at the show and on etsy soonish)

 the paisley blocked duvet cover from #westelm is out again and i still love it all these years later. i wish they would introduce a blocked line like this again.

the striped pillowcases are new from #westelm in charcoal and white. the large lumbar got changed out to my favourite grey and white ticking(also available in store) and the small lumbar got the antique linen sheet treatment

i retired my winter leather purse and let stella wear it for the summer time. she looks quite fashionable i think.

the pillow on this chair is made out of antique indigo fabric from thailand. i am not generally a blue person but this antique indigo has been coming onto my radar and i am smitten. i am making some for outside on our patio and of course i will make some to share. 

i swapped out the lampshades on these lamps again to a lighter linen shade i found at #homesense. the dark charcoal was too heavy for this time of year. call me the lampshade hoarder. the collection of green vases is vintage and comes from my childhood neighbour that sold them to me last summer. she used to give my brother and i ice cream all the time and had the biggest dog. i like that they remind me of her.

Thanks for stopping by today
