Happy spring! I'm excited to share with you all my spring home tour today! Today's tour is apart of 30 other home tours that have been happening throughout the week hosted by Marty from A Stroll Thru Life! If you are new here, dropping by from Hymns and Verses, or just don't know my story, here you go! We have lived in our house for almost 9 years now. It was new when we purchased it, but lacked the true character I love in older houses. I set on a journey to try to add some character into the house. I have come to love it's own unique characteristics though, and am now in a struggle trying to incorporate them into my own. Truthfully, I just want to add board and batten to almost every wall...that's my true love. But I know this house is beautiful without that and I am trying to hold back! haha.

My goal this year is to add some more character along our stairs and possibly finish the board and batten throughout my living room. So, come the summer tour, things may look a little different. Or maybe not :) Until then, let's get on with the tour.

This year for spring, I kept it really neutral with lots of pops of green. It's still highs in the 30s and 40s around here, so layering is a must with lots and lots of blankets. Of course, layering is a must in the summer too...so I guess the temperature doesn't really matter :)

This is our front room which also serves as a play room and guest room. The barn doors add a little bit of privacy.

This couch pulls out to a bed and has a ton of storage in it which holds all the linens, pillows and mattress toppers.

If you open this bench, it looks like a toy bomb went off. It's completely chuck full of toys :)  I love versatile furniture pieces!

 I went super neutral on my faux fireplace mantel. I have changed this up about 5 times since Christmas and finally settled for this simple look.

 On the bench is one of my favorite new items, a bread bowl. This thing is huge! It's a great addition to this room...although I had a heck of a time trying to decorate it :)

 Next up is my living room. Once again, super neutral in here with little pops of green...p.s. I may have a small obsession with stripes :)

 This shiplap clock is a new addition along with the ruffle shams. I know I have way too many pillows on my couch, but I like to dress it up like a bed...cuz, why not? :)

 This is where I have plans on continuing the board and batten...mainly to break up this huge wall. I'm half tempted to take the board and batten up between those two windows, what do you think? Too much?

 I put this firewood on here last fall and have no plans on moving it. I figure now that it's time to do some fires outdoors, I can just pull from here...and of course, quickly restock.

 I played around with this mantel a bit also and fell in love with this look. This wreath has quickly become my favorite project this year so far. Super simple and cheap to make! You can find the tutorial here.

 This is also the corner I would finish wrapping the board and batten into.

 Next stop is my master bedroom. Pillows and ruffles are the story here. I'm all about comfort :)...and ruffles, obviously.

 I updated my pillows a bit and change out my lamps since my last tour. I was worried that putting these lamps in here would make too many hard edges and square shapes...probably does, but I love them. Plus, it's always good to switch things up a bit.

 And there you have it! Next week, I'll share with you my spring dining room. Until then, hopefully you'll enjoy the spring where you are! This year, I'm just praying for no more snow. We had a crazy warm winter, and my tulips started coming up in January. Nothing like, January showers bring February flowers to be killed by March snowstorms :)
