A Spring #Shelfie

spring shelfie

Ah! Spring is most certainly on it’s way. I can see it in the blossom on the tress, and the bulbs poking through in my garden, feel it on the rays of sun shining through my kitchen window as I write this and smell it on the breeze. This winter has felt long and dragged out, and spring is very much welcomed! I’m excited for warmer days, lighter evenings and being able to have the windows open to let some fresh air into the house.

I’ve been giving the house an early spring clean and declutter, putting away the remnants of winter and getting ready for a new season. Wayfair got in touch a few weeks back to see if I wanted to take part in their Spring Selfie project and I knew it was something to jump at. Our living room has a gorgeous old fireplace, with a big mantle piece/shelf over. I love to style it for each season, it was feeling a little bare and unloved since Christmas was packed away and definitely in need of a little spring makeover.

I decided to keep it simple with not too much clutter for spring – it seemed fitting to be light and airy. I ordered this gorgeous new mirror, it creates a great central piece for the shelf and reflects even more light back into the room.

I also picked up a new lantern and this ‘Let’s Stay Home’ print. I always have a framed quote on the mantle piece which I like to change up each season. The lantern is in my {current} favourite colour and looks so pretty and spring like, and even lovelier at night with a candle burning in there. I also always have a bunch of fresh flowers, currently loving a bunch of daffodils and this Orla Kiely coffee jar makes the perfect vase!

after a winter with a cluttered shelf {I apparently have far too many Christmas Decorations!!} its really nice to have a fresh, simple, clutter free shelf. Our living room is my ‘grown up’ room, and I like to keep the vibe in here calm and relaxing {even if half the day it’s overrun with kiddos and I’m constantly having to tell people not to leave their ‘stuff’ on my shelf ha!}

Thanks to Wayfair for the mirror, lantern and print. As always, all words and opinions are my own.

    Never underestimate the power of a pretty bunch of daffs! I love the mirror over the mantelpiece and the way you’ve styled up your shelf. Gorgeous. x

    Love that print – very much on my wavelength! Loving the longer stretches these days though – forcing myself to get out for a walk every day! x

    I love yarn wound around glass, that’s what we did for our wedding styling. Such lovely colours, Polly!

    I always love having a little spot that just looks pretty and reflects the seasons. Used to have it at my mom’s, but I haven’t quite figured one out since I got my own place.

    Anyway, yours looks wonderful! And I agree, that is one lovely lantern:)
