Today I’m really excited to be sharing our simple boho chic spring dining room and a spring tablescape with you, including some lovely free printable spring watercolour place cards.
That’s the thing I look forward to most about springtime.
After a very dark and dreary few months paired with moving and then immediately launching into painting/renovating; I have to admit I am feeling more than ready for some joy and light filled days.
Days where I get to play around and have fun again with simple styling, crafting, organizing, and decorating projects. So even though we are about to tear down the wall between this dining room and the adjoining kitchen, it was almost cathartic to get it ready for today’s spring tablescape tour, hosted by my friend Bre of Rooms for Rent. Don’t forget to check out all the gorgeous inspiration at the bottom of today’s post!
I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy styling and “easy” decorating – it was such a great change from all the DIY we’ve been doing lately. And I’m loving the cheerful, relaxed vibe of this boho chic styled eating space. I even made some printable bohemian watercolour place cards that would be perfect for using at Easter, or any other spring meal occasion! I’ll be sharing them with you in the next few days.
Since we sold most of our dining furniture with our previous home, we were able to head in a slightly different direction in this space. It’s also a smaller footprint then our previous dining room, so the shorter table and works much better.
Did you ever see it before? The previous owners used it as a TV room…
I went with simple, modern chairs to contrast the rustic wood and x-leg metal table. The vintage pew, layered boho rugs, white walls, grey linen drapery, and a giant moose skull finish this room off. The red cabinet and end chairs beside them (on the right hand wall) will be relocated once we start the kitchen reno, and the whole dining room will probably get a bit of a matching makeover. But for the time being it is a simple, short term fix-up that we can all enjoy living in.
I kinda feel like the only thing you really need for a great spring tablescape is flowers. I paired mountains of tulips stuffed into simple faux marble vases (from my local Dollarama), with my everyday placemats (Ikea!), as well as our everyday dishes. I grounded the place settings with three turkish towels (that I actually ordered for the main bathroom makeover), and then threw in some adorable colourful boho mugs. Add my printable bohemian chic place cards, and I think it’s perfect for an Easter brunch…
The dining room is at the back of the house and if you stand at this end you can look straight through to our big picture windows in the living room. I’m looking forward to sharing the rest of our “finished” space with you this coming Monday in my spring home tour!
It’s like those mugs and my rug were designed by the same person!
Can you believe that the giant moose skull is actually the one thing my husband picked out for our new house? We saw it at Urban Barn when we were out furniture shopping, and he loved it so much I had to go with it. What do you think? I’m not sure if it will stay here when we do the kitchen/dining renovation, or whether it may find another home.
Perhaps a home where it doesn’t threaten to stab you if you walk by it too closely.
Are you as ready for spring as I am?
Some of my uber-talented blogging friends are sharing their spring tablescapes today, as well! Hop around to take in all this gorgeous inspiration!
