Our Spring Entry and Living Room – Canadian Bloggers Home Tour

This post contains affiliate links & photos. See our full disclosure here.

In this post: With each season change, we swap out some decor to make room for new. This is our Spring entry and living room home tour, styled with warm neutrals and hints of blush pink to welcome Spring.

Each season we have the pleasure of co-hosting a series of house tours with a talented group of Canadian bloggers and our friend Christina from TheDIYMommy.com. While we’d love to give you a full tour of our house all at once decorated for Spring, we’re once again in the middle of a couple of makeovers (our dining room and our master bedroom). So until those are finished,  we’re only sharing our Spring entry and living room for this home tour. Not to worry though, there’s still plenty of pretty pink Spring inspiration here for you!

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m Shannon. My husband, Dean and I started Home Made Lovely almost eight years ago to chronicle the DIY projects on a fixer upper we owned at the time. We’ve since sold that home (and another) and are now working on this house.
Recently, we also expanded Home Made Lovely to a larger company that is focused on creating a beautiful home and a lovely life – in the midst of all the craziness. We have hundreds of real decorating ideas, simple DIY projects, yummy recipes and loving encouragement for you, beautiful momma.

Our Spring Entry

In some seasons, we’re happy to pull down all the things and redo an entire space for the season. Christmas is generally one of those times. We do it in other seasons occasionally too. But this Spring, I didn’t have the energy. Something about long grey days, and also two other rooms in shambles while they get made over. So, the entry simply got a few blush and pastel touches.

We removed the heavier and dark A marquee and the large die box that was previously on the table

They were replaced with our ombre pastel painted mason jar vases and some faux pastel eggs.

We also added some Spring touches to our tiered tray and wooden crate.

Even with just those few things being added or changed, the entry is now looking decidedly Spring-ish!

Even though it’s right next to the entry, on the way to the living room, we’ll be skipping the dining room for today’s tour. Not to worry, we’ll be back later in the month for it’s makeover reveal and it’s Spring debut!

Our Spring Living Room

We were also feeling like we liked the living room as it was, given that we’d just refreshed it not too long ago.


We also didn’t have much budget to spend on new spring things, nor could we really justify buying more when our basement is full of decor things! So we pulled out last year’s Spring pillows – simple blush pink textured covers on our feather inserts – and added some fresh flowers in similar blush tones.

And just like that, our living room is also looking like it’s ready for Spring.

Now if only our weather would cooperate.

A little 🖤 for Home Made Lovely

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Thank you for your direction and inspiration!

You have been very helpful in just identifying my style and what I like! Thank you for your direction and inspiration!

Decorating is not as complicated as it once seemed!

I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons of my life and that decorating properly/successfully is NOT as complicated as it once seemed!!!

Lightbulb moment!

Your explanation of paint colors was the light bulb moment for me! I am enjoying your teaching.  Thanks!

Pat J.

Filled me with the confidence I need

Oh Shannon, thank you, thank you thank you!!  I wish I could download you and take you with me, but your Decor Staples Checklist has definitely given me the guidance and filled me with the confidence I need!

Zee V.

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!

A trusted friend

Before I felt overwhelmed by my clutter. Now, I feel like I have a trusted friend alongside me to pull me out of my paralysis with a fresh mindset!
