Outdoor Living Room Styled for Spring Home Tour

Welcome to Eleven Gables Styled For Spring Home Tour
I am honored to be included in their beautiful line up of blogs today.  I hope you will visit each one and pin all of these beautiful ideas!  The entire tour is at the end of this post.  If you are coming from Decor Gold Designs, I am so happy you are here.  Isn't her decor just gorgeous?!  


It's unseasonably warm here in Oklahoma.  The daffodils are blooming and the peonies are pushing through the earth ready to burst forth with blossoms.  We added another layer of compost to the peonies to keep them extra warm until spring.  I certainly don't want to lose them to frost.

 I was preparing my formal living room for this spring tour, but our family was being drawn outside with the warm weather, so I decided to share our outdoor living room instead.  Sit back, relax, and "pin" all the ideas to your favorite outdoor living board!


My outdoor living room has gone through a series of styles over the past three years.  I think I have finally settled on the blue and white neutral decor to compliment our indoor decor.  


You can see our previous decor here and here.  Come back and tell me which is your favorite in the comments!


Ten years ago, we planted tons of daffodils in the woods behind our house.  These are the ones I cut to bring indoors.



These bud vases are perfect for holding multiple stems.  I use them all the time!


All-weather wicker sofa and wingback chairs are comfy and durable.  I have had these for four years without any problems.  I wash the cushion covers once a year with a little bit of bleach.

A new blue and white rug is the perfect amount of color and pattern  for the space.  I am loving this calm view.


Garden Stools and a similar bamboo coffee table are perfect for setting your book or drink on.



The boys enjoy eating their breakfast at my childhood "vintage" wrought iron table and chairs.


There is just something so peaceful about water.



Thank GOODNESS for faux topiaries!  It gets super hot here in Oklahoma.  I don't have to worry about these little beauties drying up from the heat!  Placed in blue and white planters makes them so stylish.


The Buff Orpington Chickens are my sweet little friends.


They come when I call and follow me around. 


To see their antics (and hilarious running) follow me on Instagram and watch my Instastories!




I am so happy you have joined us on this fun tour!  
For more shopping the blog, see the "Shop Eleven Gables" in the sidebar.  Green door paint is "Hampton Sage" by Marvin Windows. Chandelier is vintage.

Master Bedroom Inspiration

It's almost spring and I have an itch to do a little remodel.  We moved into our home almost eleven years ago and have slowly redone things as time and money have allowed.  First was the mudroom, then the kitchen, laundry room, and family room.  One boy's room got an overhaul.  Next came the painting of the dark woodwork in the entry, dining, and living room HERE.

Now, it's time to tackle the master bedroom, lady's study, closet, and master bath.

Here is my favorite Bedroom Inspiration Photo that I have had saved for years

From the white silk curtains to the white bedding and upholstery... so soft and serene.

First we will pack up the room, rip up the carpet, lacquer the brown woodwork, and paint the walls.

Then, the fun of decorating begins!

Some of the finishes I have picked are...







My grandmother's sofa recently reupholstered


my dream carpet



inspired by this gigantic gilt leaner from Restoration Hardware...

I recently made my ruffled linen bedskirt and coverlet from 48 yards of white linen!  The White Silk for the draperies is on order!!  I've been showing snippets on my Instagram...

Still looking for the perfect chandelier, television armoire, and a few odds and ends!  I can't wait to get this party started!!

Setting a Pinterest-Worthy Table

Do you look around Pinterest and *wish* that you could set a Pinterest-worthy table?  I do too!!!  It wasn't until I really studied different tables and settings that I found my groove on setting a pretty table.  I glean so much knowledge from what I see out there in the real world....
Kitchen Shops, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram are all wonderful places to be inspired.  
One such Instagram account that has me swooning is LB Originals.
She helped me set this gorgeous table with one of her Pop-Up Tabletop Boxes from her etsy shop, Preppy Paper Girl.



Each Pop Up Tabletop box is Unique and Custom made by Laurie.
In my box were six plates, six salt cellars, 6 monogrammed napkins, and beautiful customized scripture cards.





The perfect start to my table, vintage and new, mix-and-match, all paired together.  "Perfectly Paired. Decidedly Darling."
To see more of my Thanksgiving table, go to my post here.

Now, Easter is soon upon us and wouldn't it be fun to surprise your guests with a gorgeous table curated by Laurie?

I have some ideas for you!


Mix your own dishes with this darling tea service!  Paired with pink tulips for a centerpiece.
