Decorating a Buffet for Spring-4 ways
Do you struggle with adding a little spring to your home?
We have had this buffet in our foyer for a few years. It was stained with chainsaw oil when we first got it. We painted it a duck egg blue so that the oil would not show through and then I painted it white. I usually will change this space up for the seasons. I always start with a few key pieces and then just change them up a little. During the live video on Facebook, I showed you some tips on decorating, adding height, and interest.
This is the stash I had to work with so I could give you some options on how to decorate a piece of furniture 4 different ways but just changing it up a little. I love farmhouse decor and that's my natural go to for my personal style. I always have scales, old books, seltzer bottles, and good pieces for adding interest.
This was option number 1 that I showed in the video. I created interest with the varying pieces, I added height to keep the eye moving, and texture with the chippy of the corbels. This palette would be good for neutral decor. I love the soft colors and the calmness of it.
The second option I did in the video was a pop of color.
This one was taking the touch of green and using it throughout the display. Then the pop of color is in the real touch tulips. It is using that color that draws your eye immediately to those.
This option is a little more modern when I added the black candlesticks, touch of gold, and the natural from the wood elements. I love adding the natural elements in with the concrete and the wood.
This one is a little more dramatic using the larger proportion items. I added the cherry blossom stems to draw your eye up and around the display.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing the different ways that you decorate the same space for spring. We had lots of comments over on Facebook on which was their favorite. Let me know which one was your favorite! If you want to see my tips on the live video, click over to the facebook page and watch the live.
