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.

This Kate Spade print is such a lovely designer fabric and Fabrics Unlimited has the best price on it that I've seen anywhere.  It's 100% linen so it's nice and thick and sturdy, perfect for pillows or it would make an amazing upholstered headboard!   Even though it's local for me, you can visit the Fabrics Unlimited website for contact information, and they would be happy to take phone orders and ship to you (tell them I sent you! :).

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!

I also added these fabulous bamboo lattice pillows from Shelby Dillon Studio flanking the china cabinet.

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!

Would you like to comment?

  1. Jennifer- no one does color as amazing as you. I always love visiting your beautiful home and being inspired. Happy Spring!

    1. Laura, you're so sweet! Thank you! Your home inspires me to buy land and a horse. ;) It's so idyllic!

  2. I second Laura, you do color better than anyone and your home just cheers me up every time. So so pretty. Happy spring.

  3. Very bright and cheerful. BUT I have a sincere question: do you leave all those pillows on your sofa and loveseat all the time?- or was that just for the photo shoot? I have no where near that many on my sofa - and when we have company - the pillows end up in the floor or in someone's lap. AND I feel the same way when I visit friends who load up the sofa with pillows. What does one do with all of them when trying to find a place to sit?

    1. Thank you! Ha! I knew someone would ask about that. :) I did add an extra one or two to fill things out for the photos, but usually there are 3 on the little couch and 4-5 on the big one. I remove all but a few if we are having company. However, our sofas are very deep and if someone is just sitting rather than lounging, you do need a pillow behind your back. When the family is chilling at night, though, there's usually a pile of pillows on the floor! :)

  4. I love all of your new pillows and the new drapes. Such pretty fabrics and colors and you always mix the most interesting patterns Love the pretty flowers on the dining table and the blue jars that make up your pretty centerpiece. Stunning. Thanks so much for joining the tour, you always have the most interesting and inspiring rooms.

  5. your home is such a fun and eclectic mix of pattern and color... i love that i can see a space and know it's yours! beautiful as always.

  6. What a bright and cheerful home! Your dining room always makes me smile. I love the kelly green paired with the ginger jars. Fabulous combination!

    1. Thanks so much, Kim! It's so fun to play with different combinations!

  7. Oh Jennifer, you're a color alchemist, and I do love your home! It's a happy space with lots of character and little details at every turn. Adorable!

  8. I love all of your colorful fabrics!! I totally noticed the new drapes. I have been wanting a change in my living room as well. I am lucky that my mother in law sews and helps me. Thanks for sharing. As ususal, your home is full of inspiration!

  9. You know how much I love your home Jennifer and time and time again, I am amazed how you change up the look of your home! Perfect again!!! I love what you did on the dining table and all the touches of pinks and green, in again just the right dose, just boggles me! So honored to share this home tour with you!

  10. Such a fantastic home tour, Jennifer! I have all the heart eyes for your wonderful colors and pattern mixes!! xo, Andrea

  11. Love your blog and your house. It is always a source of inspiration! Can you please share if you purchased the tassels on the new red lumbars or did you make them?

  12. Love, love, love your combination of colos. What a happy home to live in. I still love your 'old' curtains though. Did you ourchase them or make them and would you share where you got the fabic for them, please!

    1. Thanks so much! I'll probably switch them out in the winter months. I made them and you can find the information here, but I'm not really sure if that fabric is still available or not.

  13. Where to begin??? I love the new curtains, I did notice that they were different. You are right they look so crisp and fresh! I LOVE how you use color! Your home is just gorgeous no matter what season. I wish so much we had an At Home store near us. There IS one in Pa. but it is 2 1/2 hours away:( Thanks for this wonderful tour. Happy Spring!!!!

  14. PS, sure wish I had source for some of the curly willow branches. They are so pretty!

  15. Gorgoeus Jennifer. I'm loving your entryway look with the new rug. As always, you are amazing at color matching.

  16. Hi Jennifer, thanks so much for coming by to visit. I've long been a fan of your blog; your use of color and pattern boggles my mind. You are a master of putting it all together seamlessly, and that's a crazy genius talent! LOVE those brilliant blues and greens!

  17. So gorgeous friend! Love the striped curtains and adorable tassel pillow!

  18. Beautiful and so inspiring. Love the curly willow branches also. I had forgotten how pretty they are. Is it too much to ask....what do you use to clean your brass? I know you've probably told in prior blogs but I don't remember where. I bought some brass deer this weekend and one has been painted brown -- it's flaking off which is good but the paint isn't coming out of the crevices. Also, they are very grungy looking and just need a good polishing. Any suggestions? Thanks so much.

    1. Hi Jayne. I've actually stripped paint off of brass successfully, but here's the post you want. I show the powder version of the cleaner but there's also a liquid that works perfectly too. Super easy!

  19. Beautiful! As always, Jennifer! Can you, please, share the source of blue and white garden stool and the blue and white soup bowl(?) as centerpiece on the dining table with the landscape picture. It's just gorgeous with those planted flowers.

  20. Sure! The garden stool is from At Home and they have them currently. However, I've had the centerpiece for years and it was from a sample sale, so no source for that. Sorry!

  21. I immediately noticed the new living room curtains before you mentioned them. I love them! Your home looks amazing as always..

  22. Jennifer your home is just stunning! And it is so funny because I have admired your fabulous dining room hutch for awhile now and just today I realized that I have the exact same hutch in my kitchen! Love all of your greens and pretty blue and white accent pieces. Your new striped curtains are soooo pretty and fresh. A Wonderful tour!
    XO Barbara

  23. Jennifer I love your style! Such a classy and fun style. Thank you for sharing.
