Spring 2019 Tulips & Bunnies Entryway Idea Board

Thursday, March 21st, 2019

Spring has officially arrived, even though Winter still has a bit of a hold on us here in New England. Nonetheless, it’s the perfect time to start refreshing the rooms of our homes – whether that means diving into a deep spring cleaning session, switching out heavy winter curtains for something softer, or arranging flowers in a favorite vase (or two). We love starting any seasonal refresh in an entryway space, because it’s often the easiest and simplest space to spruce up. We hope that today’s Idea Board inspires you to refresh and recreate the look in your own entryway, and ultimately, throughout your house.

Assorted Flowers Pillow

This hand hooked wool pillow features a design from artist Mary Lake Thompson. The three vases are bursting with flower arrangements and color; perhaps you will be inspired to recreate them with fresh flowers.

Bunny with Flower Basket

Create a small display of herbs, flowers or succulents in the basket of this bunny sculpture; its timeless finish will coordinate with whatever seasonal plants you decide on (the flowers shown here are not included).

Thursday’s Theme: The Garden of Our Dreams (a wishlist)

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

March snow made another appearance last night, which has us thinking even more about spring. For this week’s Thursday’s Theme, we’ve compiled a few photos of plants and features we would love to have in our [dream] garden. Tell us what’s on your wishlist, and share your spring gardening plans with us in a comment below.

Flowers, of course.

We love when a variety of colors and shapes makes a bold and cheerful statement in a garden – especially when they are mixed together.

Vegetables, of course.

Yes, the garden of our dreams would be both a flower garden and vegetable garden. Handmade raised beds for the latter, please.

Moving up.

A vertical section would be perfect up against a fence, a decorative trellis or a bare exterior wall (yes, cats would definitely be the rulers of our garden).

A creative/whimsical feature.

We could definitely get creative with some potted plants and displays, like this one showing a terracotta pot tipped over, “spilling” the flowers out into the mulch. Or a shovel garden stake adorned with metal garden pots.

A gathering place.

Above all else, we’d love a garden we could share with friends and loved ones. An outdoor table with enough space for coffee, tea (or a cocktail) and snacks would be the cherry on top of our dream garden sundae.
