Hi guys, I’m super excited to be taking part in the Color Loving Spring Home Tour, hosted by Carrie of Lovely Etc!
Be sure to check out the other beautiful spaces in this tour, linked at the bottom of the post! I can’t wait to be inspired by this talented group of color-loving bloggers 🙂
So I’m Beth, for those of you who are new- welcome! Our family moved into our 1895 home about 2 1/2 years ago, and since then we’ve been working to update it with a coastal farmhouse style that we love. Regular readers of Avenue Laurel know that I am all about using color in my home- you’ll definitely see a common thread of pink, aqua, and white.
Let’s get to it!

Color loving spring home tour
Most people enter our home through our mudroom, which is one of my favorite spaces in our house. I finished it a year ago…and yeah, that pink buffalo check wall treatment pretty much steals the show in here.
It was a super easy DIY with fabric and starch.
In this space, I made one pretty small update for spring- replacing the heavy brown bag that we use to store gloves, scarves, and our dog accessories with this much lighter canvas one that I embellished with my Cricut:
I love thrifting, and those pictures were one of my best finds- $2 apiece! I love how they give this very casual room just a bit more polish.
Right off the mudroom is our laundry/bathroom. I just finished this space as part of the $100 Room Challenge- and we are still loving having it completed!
Yeah, I think my love for bright, happy spaces may come through in this room 😉
I used my Cricut to make the wallpaper decals– the entire wall treatment cost a whopping $26! It’s a good stand-in for the wallpaper I had been eyeing, but was WAY over budget. And, I used leftover tile from other projects to tile the wall behind the washer and dryer, and leftover lumber to build the shelves. Did I mention this room was done on a $100 budget?
I love decorating small spaces with a punch of color and pattern- especially rooms like mudrooms and the laundry. Why not make those mostly utilitarian spaces as fun as you can- and show your design personality at the same time?
Our kitchen is definitely a work in progress. There are lots of updates we have planned for this space at some point, but since that will involve major construction (and funds), I’m satisfied with the updates we’ve done with paint, removing some upper cabinet doors, subway tile, and adding in touches of happy color!
And adding in some pretty blooms cut from a tree in the yard is an easy way to add more color!
We don’t have a dining room in our home, just this little eat in area, but I freshened it up with some faux cherry blossom stems. You can get a peek at the mudroom door from this angle 🙂
My goal is to have a wall of beautiful plates on that wall. I just love the color, and interest, they bring to a space! The hutch is a family piece that I inherited from my grandparents.
Our living room is definitely a mix of old and new. It’s a pretty small room, but comfortable. This space received the biggest update for spring- and just adding some new pillows to the space really lightened and brightened!
Umm…do I normally have a glass vase filled with flowers in my living room? No, no I don’t. Those are totally for you guys!
So I love this little corner. The wingback was my grandparents, the vintage sewing table (that the components are on) belonged to my other grandparents, and all of the artwork is thrifted. It’s definitely a bit of an eclectic mix!
I couldn’t resist bringing the coastal farmhouse theme that we love into the master bedroom, too. It’s colorful, but definitely more muted than the rest of the house. This room was decorated on a budget too- most pieces are old family pieces or thrifted.
I mean, I still have to bring in a couple of shots of vibrant color here and there!
Adding just a few fresh grocery store flowers helps bring a touch of spring to this space.
I hope you enjoyed my colorful coastal farmhouse spring tour! Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the rest of the beautiful, colorful spaces on the tour in the link below!
