Hi everyone! I am Jessica and our blog is called Four Generations One Roof. We are a crew of four generations all living together under one roof, and I happen to be the ring leader. Our blog is where we share our insane living arrangement (going on six years now living together), DIY home projects, renovations, tutorials, room makeovers and whatever else goes on in our home. There are nine of us total — and yes, it’s crazy that we all live under one roof — and so far, we have all survived! Ha. I was thrilled when Better Homes and Gardens invited me to share our family room with you as well as fabulous ideas on how you can bring the much-anticipated SPRING into your own family room.
This year for spring, I decided to use coral and navy throw pillows along with a coordinated throw blanket to add pops of fun bright color to the room.
Pillows are the easiest and most economical way to add color to a room. Many times I will purchase fabric I love and cover old pillows. Don’t worry if you can’t sew; purchase some stitch witchery and iron the fabric together. You will be amazed at how you can change the look with some fun fabric and old pillow inserts. Below, I took an old piece of fabric and covered a canvas dump truck wall hanging that was my son’s when he was a toddler. Paired with a couple of candle stick holders, faux coral and a cute sign, you now have a springy themed vignette for little money.
It’s super easy to transform a room from season to season using just a few items.
I love how they coordinated the pink colorful flowers with the pink throw pillow in both the above and below photo.
What strikes me about this room is the tall greenery in the corner. Anytime you add fresh greens or flowers to a room, it instantly feels springy and fresh.
This room is one of my favorites. Chocolate brown and pink add such a huge impact to a room. This color scheme makes the room feel alive, happy and just what is needed after a long winter! You don’t need to have colorful and patterned furniture to achieve this look. You can purchase fabric and recover pillows, create fabric-covered wall art, or recover books and boxes for shelving displays.
Here is another example of layering framed artwork to create a spring-themed vignette. The mantel is simple yet adds a contrast in color as well as ties in the orange color from the throw pillows and blanket.
There are so many ways to add a spring element to your family room, these are just a few of the easiest and most economical. Of course, you can break out the paint brushes and get busy adding a fresh new paint color to your room. I’m all about that, but for now our family room is sporting some fun new throw pillows, DIY wall art and a colorful throw blanket. Thank you so much, Better Homes Gardens, for inviting me to spend time with your readers. It was fun!
