craving spring color

As the season begins to change from the short brown days of winter to the freshness of spring, I realize I am ready for more color around the cottage.


Not that I've  ever been shy around color but spring just calls for pops of eye candy goodness.   I started pulling out my Easter decorations, placing them on the mantel to help usher in the season.



I also put together this pretty banner from some left over quilt blocks and draped it across the fireplace. 



If I had to choose a color that just says, "Welcome Spring", I don't think I could decide.  I love them all.


What about you?  Can you choose a favorite?

What colors have you thinking Spring?

  16. I LOVE your mantle!! I've been itching to bring out more color and spring decor - though we now seem to finally be having winter here in WI. Guess I'll wait just a week bit yet.
    I've been a lurker for a time on your blog - but want you to know how I enjoy your post!

  19. Your mantle looks so pretty, all ready for spring. I'm not quite ready to bring out some spring decor yet, but when I do, I tend to choose yellow, green, and white.

  20. Goodness, that is a question I'd have to really think about, but after some thought, I do think green would be the color to welcome spring. ONe of my favorite pars of spring is the new green growth that protrudes from the bare brances of the trees - oh, and then the pink or white flowers of the blooms. Lovely contrast.

    Love the red in your rooms. So happy.

  21. I'm craving color as well. I just took down my 'winter' decorations and am now ready to decorate and put a little more color back into my home. I have no favorite colors, just nice, soft ones. Anything that reminds me of the newness and birth of Spring and all it brings!
