Spring is finally here, which means spring cottage flowers. The first day of spring really gave me some new fun ideas. The past week I have been going through my mother’s and grandmother’s greenhouses, collecting their weathered and worn terra cotta pots. I wanted to create a spac in our home that I could do a plant area.
This little area has many textures and layers to it. Although this is on the side of our dining room; I still wanted to incorporate some kitchen essentials along with the terra cotta pots. I chose to use cream and white plates, along with some wood tone little jars. Since some of the kitchenware isn’t vintage; I added in the vintage scales in to keep the cottage feel to the area.
I picked up this little honey jar from the Hearth and Hand collection at Target; and thought that it would be adorable to add into this area. After all when I see a honey jar, my thoughts go straight to spring. The wood texture of this little jar and the adorable honey stir; was just what this space needed. I wanted to make sure that this area was simple enough to not create a greenhouse in my dining room.
I did want to add in some artwork and I found these adorable botanical prints; this past week at Vintage Market Days of Asheville. The chalkboard generally has a quote or words and this time I wanted something different this time. I took some masonite white string and dangled the pictures across the chalkboard; to add that vintage spring touch of a greenhouse without being a greenhouse. This little area in our dining room gives me the spring cottage feel every time I walk into the house. I hope that this helps you create your own little spring flower area.
