Today on the blog we are featuring five pieces of decorative decor that feature birds and natural or classic designs. With brushed finishes, soft fabrics, functional appeal and handcrafted quality, the following are must-haves not only for spring, but for all year long.

Spring Decorating: A Masterful Mantel

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Now that we’ve completely moved on to spring (thanks to the weather finally catching up to the calendar), we are all about decorating our homes in spring pastels, greenery and florals, Easter bunnies and songbirds. For many homes, the fireplace mantel is a focal point, or at least a gathering point for family and friends, so we have rounded up a few seasonal looks to make your home welcoming and spring-like. And if you don’t have a mantel, no worries! Many of these style techniques can be transferred to a bookshelf, a floating shelf or even a tabletop centerpiece.

Incorporating just about every aspect of spring style, this decorative mantel stays true to the muted color palette of the room while still making a charming seasonal statement. We love the three bunnies (hear, see and speak no evil) and the SPRING banner.

Color dictates this look, although you don’t need to paint your walls yellow (or whatever color you choose) to get the same cheerful effect. Yellow is used throughout this display: in flowers, a runner and books, and is complemented by a few gold accents to contrast the wood flower box and flower pot. Using a simple color scheme and incorporating varying textures and materials works almost 100% of the time. The chalkboard is a whimsical touch, too, although wall art would also work well here.

This floating shelf is not a mantel, but we like the look of the hanging wicker baskets against rich greenery and white accents. A great display for a chimney that is not exposed, your home will reflect the natural qualities we admire during the springtime.

The standout on this mantel is the combination of glass and distressed wood. Glass jugs and bottles of various sizes, shapes and colors can bring life to any space, especially when filled with tree limbs, greenery or flowers. The terrarium adds unique detail that brings the spring look to any room throughout the year.

If you need a little symmetry on your mantel, placing two of the same flower arrangements or sculptures on either end will fill that requirement. This also helps bring a look together if it feels a little too chaotic, or not as refined as you would like it to be. The pink bulbs on this shelf also brighten up the look, especially against a gray or muted wall.

The most simple way to decorate a mantel, of course, is using a strand of garland to give life and color to the room it is in. We like the added lettering on this mantel, which gives it a more full (and spring specific) look.

Must-Have Rabbits and Bunnies

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

Brown Bunny DoorstopWhite Rabbit Wonderland CollectibleSpring is the perfect time for decorating with rabbit and bunny home accents, so we are celebrating with five of our newest rabbit and bunny spring decor here on the blog.
Take a look below.

First up is a charming addition to our selection of Lori Mitchell collectibles. This White Rabbit may look a little familiar; he is inspired by the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. Display among other literary treasures or complete the whimsical look with Alice herself this spring and throughout the year.

We are also introducing a new design by artist Leslie Anderson. Her made in the USA Cat and Kitten Doorstops are so cute and functional, she’s added a Brown Bunny to the collection.

Another made in the USA spring rabbit is one that will hang on a wall among rustic wall art or above an entryway table. Crafted from metal with a textured, rusty finish, this vintage inspired rabbit makes a great addition to your spring decor and also makes a charming statement all year long.

The last, but certainly not least, two rabbit home accents are also perfect for Easter decorating. The rabbit atop a charming snail is dressed in pastels; a tailcoat and bow tie offer an additional fun and somewhat formal look.

Our Standing Brown Bunny Sculpture is not as colorful, but will make a regal statement in a centerpiece or on a shelf, or even in your country kitchen where it could hold herbs and small plants in the basket planter.
