Hello friends, and welcome to my 2017 Spring Home Tour! I've been a busy bee preparing for this day and I can't wait to show you around. Let me begin with a big thank you to Marty of A Stroll Thru Life for organizing this tour, she always sends the nicest readers my way! If you're visiting from Decorating Delirium, I'm so glad you stopped by. Apparently Jennifer loves color and pattern just as much as I do!
Let's begin the tour today with my Entry at the front door. I actually shared this space a few weeks ago with a new look for Spring, so here's just a little peek. If you missed it earlier and want to see more, click over to see all of the details and more photos, including the 3 different ways that I styled it.
Now that you're in the front door, come on in to the Living Room! If you're new to Dimples and Tangles, you'll quickly see that I love loads of color and mixing and matching lots of patterns.
Hands down, switching out pillows is the easiest change you can make in your space each season. I've been busy making some new pillow covers, and as soon as I saw this new green leokat Kate Spade fabric, how could I pass it up? I mean it IS my color and everything...
Fabrics Unlimited is a located in Oklahoma City, and I love stopping by and browsing their aisles... I always find beautiful designs there that I haven't seen anywhere else, like their new selection of Kate Spade fabrics. You all sure do love some of the fabrics I've purchased there in the past, too, like the blue ikat I used on the Euro shams in my bedroom, the black and white buffalo check on my bamboo stools, and the pink and orange geometric in the lumbar pillows on my sofa today.
If you're a regular reader here, did you notice something else new in the room too?
My sewing machine has been working overtime this past week, I've been working on these new striped curtains too. I've been wanting to make a change from the previous curtains (which I still love, and I know you do too, I'm not getting rid of them for good...) and even though they are both a black and white/cream color palette, these feel so much lighter and more crisp. I'm going to post more about them next week and give you a tutorial if you want to try your hand at making your own drapes (it's really not that hard!).
We trimmed some trees over the weekend, and I saved the curly willow branches for the mantel. They're more wild and dramatic in real life than they look in the photograph, so I kept the rest of the mantel simple.
I don't show this table very often, but the generous square size works nicely between the sofa and loveseat. I am always drawn to vignettes styled with loads of stacked books, and the bottom level is just right for piling them on. Tip: the bottom level is made of cane, so I spread some old books out underneath it (on the carpet) to alleviate the weight of the stacks of books on top of the cane. I don't want it to tear!
I switched the places of the leather recliners and the loveseat , so the bamboo console table moved behind the loveseat. I'm a little sad that it can't be seen when you walk in the front door anymore, but we really like this arrangement so much better. I bought this scalloped bowl around Christmas and have the neatest story to tell you about it soon.
The Dining Room just got a bit of fluffing since the last time you saw it.
I picked up these nice sized potted hydrangeas at Aldi and hope to plant them outside when I'm sure we're past the possibility of a frost. I also recently found this awesome Kate Spade table runner, I love that it has every single color I could want in it.
And it's perfect paired with the Leokat pillows!
There are SO many good designs available, and although I usually sew my own pillows, can I just say how wonderful it is to open a box and pull out a beautiful pillow... down insert already stuffed inside and all? #fantastic! These are definitely more neutral than I usually get, but I l branched out on purpose because I love the pattern and they will be perfect to mix in with so many different things. I think they'll eventually land in our office, but things don't stay in one place for long around here.
The black and white stripes made their way into the Kitchen Breakfast Nook too, it feels so much brighter now!
