Spring in the Sunroom

It was time to add Spring to the sunroom.

To change out the red accents and decor and bring in the light and fresh colors

of a soft blues and greens.

To add the signs of Spring that have been put away and patiently waiting to say,

Spring is here!

Spring . . . when we love to bring out the bunnies and garden decor.

Spring . . . where we often see the bird’s nest whether tucked into a hanging basket

under a porch (as they nest in mine) or under a wonderful cloche.

I love decorating with vintage items in the sunroom.

The potting bench that is my very favorite piece in the sunroom.

The vintage watering cans are pretty much a staple in the sunroom all year round.

They just get embellished with seasonal decor such as this bee skep

with the vintage gate as a backdrop.

We can all relate to the glorious flowers of Spring,

like this beautiful Helleborus that sits on the sunroom end table.

I always seem to have fresh flowers in the sunroom all year round,

but I especially love decking the sunroom with the flowers of Spring,

such as these tulips.

When my hydrangeas bloomed, they bloomed in late Spring.

I am hoping that they bloom this year, as they have not in the past 2 years.

So I must rely on the grocery store to get my hydrangea fix.

The pillows are new to the sunroom.

The soft blue and green pillows were found in the sale bin at Pottery Barn

and the nest pillow is designed by Craftberry Bush and sold through Society 6.

The sunroom was ready to greet the First Day of Spring.

  39. Shirley, I always enjoy taking a virtual seat in your sunroom! All your spring touches are prefect for nesting with a morning cup of tea or evening cocktail. I picked up the same sweet bunny ceramic pail in green from HomeGoods 🙂 You know I have tole watering can envy! If you run across another one in your antiquing sprees, I know a potting shed that would give it a good home 🙂
