2019 Spring Home Tour - My Home

I am thrilled to be starting off the 2019 Spring Home Tours.  This week we will have 30 homes open their doors to share their beautiful decor.  Each day will feature 6 fabulous homes.    If you are here from Nesting With Grace, welcome.  I am sure you love her Spring as much as I do.  You can see the full line up at the end of the post and an introduction to the other 5 homes on today's tours.

Welcome To My Home

I love this view just inside our front door.  It shows how open our home is.  You can see upstairs and all the way out the back to the patio and yard.  When we were house hunting, I wanted a really open home with just a little definition between spaces.  This was the closest house I found.
The first thing you see on the left hand side is our entry table. 
 This is one of the places where I always have fun changing up the vignettes.

  I love this really tall cloche and today it is highlighting a marble book and a fun magnifying glass.

 I am still really thrilled with my DIY Art Makeover.  I think it has just enough color and is still neutral.
To the right tucked around the corner is our living room.
Pink is still such a hot design color whether it is blush pink or hot pink.  I kept seeing all the pink flowers in the stores this spring so I couldn't resist adding a bit to my living room.  I've had these velvet hot pink pillows for a couple of years, so I pulled out one and added it in with my new glitzy pillows that I recently made.  

Pink and gray mixed with a sequin pillow and a really fabulous throw created a super glamorous room.  So for Spring I am going with Girly Glam.

I love the soft pink of the tulips.

 I kept the coffee table really simple with just the tulips, a pretty bowl and a candle.

 This pretty hot pink scarf is the perfect match to the pillow and I love this pretty sequin pillow too. I had enough of this fabric to make the square one for the sofa and this small lumbar.

The Hot Pink definitely makes a statement.

I love a neutral room that you can easily change, so I have a couple other variations that I might use from time to time.  If you aren't into Pink how about Navy Blue.

 Switch out the tulips and a couple of pillows and you have a totally different room.

or we can go really pastel - - -

 This only took one pillow switch for the sofa.

I even did the room in Green too .

What ever mood you are in and depending on what you like.  It is so easy to change a room with just a few pillow swaps if you have everything else neutral.

I think for now I am going with Girly Glam in Pink for a while. 

Next up on the tour is - 

 Setting For Four - Heather's style is a bit Farmhouse, Contemporary, Transitional and GORGEOUS.  I know her Spring will be fabulous.

 Cuckoo4Design - Julia always inspires me with her style.  I love that she uses a fabulous sofa in her dining area.

  Pink Peppermint Design - Tammy spent the last year remodeling her "fixer upper" and turning it into a showplace.  Style and Ideas galore to enjoy.

Southern Hospitality - Rhoda has been busy giving her new home tons of personal touches.  Tradition with a modern twist and it is stunning.

 Nesting With Grace - Brooke's style is amazing.  She has turned her cozy cottage into the most amazing home filled with tons of ideas that will inspire you for days.  

Be sure to check back all week to see the rest of the tours.

  1. Hi Marty, thanks for pulling this together again! I always look forward to Spring and this tour gets me in gear to put some spring touches around my house. Your home looks so good, love all the spring florals, pops of pink and all your pretty touches. I really love that big art piece you made over, so gorgeous and such a statement!

  2. Marty, I love how you switch the color scheme in your living room. Every color makes a really good statement, that hot pink is lots of fun!

  3. Gorgeous spring touches Marty! Love your DIY art and all the pretty pink accents! Happy Spring!

  4. I love all your color combinations but I think the hot pink is my favorite! Beautiful tour, Marty!!

  5. Marty, I love your spring tour of your beautiful home! The bright pops of pink are the perfect addition for springtime!

  6. Very pretty Marty. Love seeing your home done up for Spring.

  7. loving the 'girly glam' and the pink works so well with your pillows that you made.

  8. I've really been looking forward to tour week--it always gives me so many good ideas! I love the three throw pillow color pathways you used. This just goes to prove what I always tell my husband: you can NEVER have too many pillows! Thanks for hosting another great week, Marty!

  9. Beautifully designed home! I fear I would never be able to have such a fine home without a decorator and a housekeeper. My late paternal grandmother was literally ashamed of my lack of coordination when it came to decorating. I'm one of those people who likes what I like, and I have no sense of whether it belongs with anything else I have or not!

  10. Marty how fun this is! I love seeing all the different looks with the different color combo. Of course I am still loving the green but you make all the colors look amazing. The blues are wonderful, but your glam pink is so you!

    I love the open look of your beautiful home. I can feel the good vibes through the computer. Thanks for hosting this amazing week of tours. Happy spring!

  11. Love the pink Marty and all your open space! Thanks so much for hosting the tour and for all the hard work๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I just LOVE the pink! I sure wish I could sew and make pillows!!! Love the scarf as a throw! I will be visiting many of the tours!!! Have a beautiful week, Marty!

  13. Hi Marty! Oh, your home looks beautiful and I pick the pink and then the blue! Love how you can change your look with just accessories! Thank you for putting together the home tours. I always love them.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  14. Your makeover on that art piece is stunning - heading off to check out that post now! I always question myself as to whether abstract art looks funny in a traditionally styled home like mine, but yours shows me that it fits in perfectly fine - beautifully, in fact! I'm also coveting that pillow you have with the antelope print! Lovely spring tour. Thank you for sharing!

  15. Marty,
    Your Timeless Cosmopolitan Chic design is stunning!
    I love all the neutrals!
    The PoPs of pink are truly, uplifting and refreshing. . .perfect for Springs arrival!
    The light, bright openness of your home is lovely!
    Always filled with inspiring design @ A Stroll Thru life, thank you, Marty!

  16. Bonjour,

    Un bel hommage ร  Demoiselle Printemps...
    Gros bisous ๐ŸŒธ

  17. Very Beautiful. I love the wonderful pops of the bright pink! Your home tours are always a joy to see!!!
    Happy Spring Marty!!

  18. So pretty! I love the pops of pink in your living room. Everything is so fresh and airy!

  19. LOVE the pink but really liked the other colors, too. That green really caught my eye this time, too. It is always fun to see these tours. Have a wonderful night- xo Diana

  20. Always in awe when you post pictures of your house!

  21. Beautiful spring tour! Your home is always so elegant and chic, my friend. I'm completely envious of your home's large windows, so much pretty natural lighting. Thank you so much for all of your hard work organizing this tour!

  22. I always love your tours Marty! Your house is beautiful and totally loving the pops of pink!

  23. So pretty Marty. I love your review of all of the ways you have switched up your family room, just by adding a few pillows. I am loving your girly glam with pops of pink. That large scale DIY art is always a favorite of mine. Thanks for hosting the tour again this spring!

  24. The hot pink is a nice change for spring. I was rather tired of all the red from Christmas and Valentine’s Day around my house. Bring on the pastels, hot pinks, bright turquoise, and spring green!

  25. Your home looks lovely, Marty... in all the different styles. I actually love the pink style the best! Hope you'll come share at Homestyle Gathering on Tuesday!

  26. You know I love blue, but those pops of pink are too fun for spring! I am so impressed with your DIY art. I often see so many pieces at HomeGoods that I love but are just not quite right for my rooms. You have inspired me to give them a little facelift! :) Thanks again for such a wonderful tour!

  27. Marty, I love your spring updates to your home. The pops of pink are my favorite - but I'm a little biased - haha! Thank you for putting together such a lovely group of talented bloggers and for including me this time around. xoxo

  28. I love your style, Marty! So chic and inviting- your use of neutrals is fabulous!

  29. Marty, I just love your beautiful spring home!! Thank you again for having me on the tour and happy spring! Can't wait for the next tour already!! xoxo

  30. I love that you showed a couple of different looks in the living room, I really like the blooming branches that you showed on your coffee table. The hot pink really made a difference in the look of your room!
