Here in Oklahoma, our temps have been well above normal lately, and as a result I think everyone has Spring Fever early this year!  I've definitely been ready to spruce up the house for Spring, and I'm so excited to share my Entry with you today for the Styled for Spring Home Tour.  In fact, I was so excited about this space, that I even styled it three different ways!

Before we start with the tour, I wanted to say a big thank you to our hostesses, Randi from Randi Garrett Design and Jennifer from Decor Gold Designs for organizing this tour and inviting me to participate.  These ladies have worked really hard to put together a stellar group of tours!  If you're visiting from CC + Mike, welcome and I'm so glad you're here.  CC's porch and entry are absolutely stunning, I could just stare at those glossy black walls and black and white flooring all day long!

For today's tour, since it is just one small area,  I had fun playing with some different styling options and thought I might as well share them all with you.  Some of you might like streamlined and simple, some might prefer a "more is more" approach, so I have a little something for everyone.

Look #1 is very simple.  I pulled a few accent colors from the rug (regular readers...surprise!) and piled up a bowl with fruit which is one of my favorite accessories this time of year.

(You can see a peek of the Dining Room in the mirror.)

Look #2 gets a bit more dramatic and slightly more formal.  As I mentioned at the beginning of today's post, I've been feeling the itch for a few changes here and there.  So, you all are getting to see the first one today... (see what this room previously looked like here)

I'm head over heels with the new rug in the entry!  Because of a few other changes I'm making in the adjoining living room, the striped rug had to go (it found a good home in another room, though!).  I've wanted to add in hints of pink here and there, and this rug gives me a good jumping off point.

The first thing my husband said was "It's so soft!" and it is!  I love that there are so many colors in it, and they can really read however you want them to.  Is it blue?  Is it black?  Is it hot pink?  Is it red?  YES!  All of those colors are mixed in when you look really closely, so it's easy to pull out the ones that you want to accentuate.  For me, I'll take all of them!  ;)  Another bonus is that with the pattern and color, this is a great choice for right inside the front will hide a multitude of stains (not to mention it's a really great price right now)!

Before we move on to the last look, let me just point out that this gold vase might just be the deal of the century!  I found it online, but when I went to pick it up in the store I was shocked at how big and nice it was for the price.  I can already think of about 4 places that I want to use this one.

Look #3 goes all out!  I couldn't resist pulling it some blue and white.  It doesn't match, but it goes with the rug.  You all know I can't resist mixing patterns, and I think this mix gives a playful and more casual feel to the space.

I've tucked plants everywhere I can through the winter, I'll be happy to move some outside again soon.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I'd love to know what you think of the Entry, and what your favorite look was.   The next stop on today's tour is Stone Gable, you are going to absolutely love Yvonne's home!

  1. LOVE the new rug, and you're right - the price is a steal! I would love the blue one for our house! I love the first look with the wood bowl, but the last one seems more you :) Happy spring friend!

  2. oh it's so fun and so you! i love the colors here- the rug, elephant, plants! and my favorite is the last one because i am a fan of less symmetry. :)

  3. Jennifer your new rug is AAAAAMMazing....I am so in love with it in your entry! The colors are so vibrant and happy, what a greeting when you walk through the door!! Adore all the ways you styled this space too!

  4. I love the size of your entryway and the colours are so inspiring for spring!
    Hugs, Jamie

  5. Nobody does bold color better than you! Love them all but No. 3 knocks it out of the park.

  6. Jennifer I love your 3 looks for spring! Number two is my favorite!!! They are all gorgeous! Love your new rug too! You do color so masterfully well! Happy spring my friend! xo

  7. How Pretty! I love your new rug, I think the brass vase with the tulips is my favorite! This definitely makes me want to spruce up everything for Spring. Thanks for sharing and have a great night!

  8. Beautiful Jennifer! Loving the last look. Definitely speaks more to my maximalist style and it's super colorful. That rug is gorgeous!!!

  9. Oh my goodness! All three are beautiful but #3 takes the cake!!! You are an inspiration to me. I LOVE your style!!!

  10. Number three has to be my favorite because I like lots of "stuff," and you do it so well. Love the colors!

  11. I like all three but especially the third one! That rug is perfect!

  12. I always love seeing your beautiful, colorful home! All three are so gorgeous, but I vote for 3 too. Those drapey tulips and the array of colors is stunning!

  13. Love, love, love the new rug!!! It's so gorgeous with all of your pink accessories. I love both looks 2 and 3, but I think I like #2 the best. I also love what you have done with the elephant❣️❣️❣️

  14. Definitely Number 3! Love the blue and white with the rug, and the orange tulips are the perfect compliment to the blue! Outstanding!

  15. The new rug is so happy. My favorite of your three entry looks is #3, with the pink jar and the blue and white jars.

    On a separate note, thanks so much for recently sharing my shop as a source for your readers to get their own Chiang Mai Dragon pillow covers! Yours are just the perfect pattern and color scheme for your space.

  16. The three new looks are very pretty, but have to say I miss the green and the Chiang Mai Dragon pillow and chair in the entry! I absolutely love your blog and your amazing creativity!!

  17. I have never seen anyone mix colors like you do, and I LOVE your mix! All three looks are awesome and that rug is spectacular. Also, I need those bells on your door. My sweet puppy rings bells on my back door when she wants to go out, but mine are simple jingle bells on a ribbon....some like yours would be better. Source? Sue

    1. Hi there! Those were a seasonal purchase at Target this year. They originally came on a big cotton rope but I switched them out to the striped ribbon. I checked the site while writing the post and they don't have them anymore, and I couldn't find anything similar. So sorry!

  18. Did you paint your dresser yourself, and if so, is there a blog post about it? Love all three looks!

  19. I went to my local Target today and bought the round gold vase you showed in your entry. It was a great buy, but I noticed on the bottom the tag that reads NOT to put water in it! I am planning to put a cylinder vase from the Dollar store inside (it does fit) so I can use it for fresh flowers. Just thought folks might want to know - and didn't know if your tag might have been missing!

    1. I did see that, Sandy, but I didn't even think about mentioning it here. I always slip a smaller vase inside these bigger containers just like you're talking about, so that didn't even cross my mind. Thanks for the heads up! (Although I'm not sure WHY you couldn't put water in it??)

  20. LOVE the rug!! You know, I've never been a pink person but the past 2-3 years I've been more attracted to it ~ this year especially! I love the ginger jar that you spray painted...perfect in your decor. All views are quite beautiful and I think that #1 and #3 are my favorites. Now, come to Texas and help me! :)


  21. How fabulous to do three looks for spring! I especially love the third look and that beautiful rug! So fun to tour with you again! xoxo
