Spring Home Tour Today!! {Spring Parade of Homes}

Good morning!

Today I am excited to sharing our Spring Home Tour as part of the Spring Parade of Homes.  Myself and 13 other bloggers are all sharing our home tours throughout the week.

Spring Parade of Homes

I love Spring. I think I may have told you that a few times lately. It is my favourite season.

Even with the crazy flash rain storms or the sometimes days on-end of pouring rain that you get. There is something about living on the West Coast where it can rain for days and days and then finally the sun breaks through those clouds and you are suddenly on top of the world and completely forget that it just rained for two weeks straight.

Kind of like childbirth. You forget how bad it was once you are gazing into the eyes of your absolutely perfect new baby.

I have loved adding spring-y touches to our décor. Bringing back fresh colour, such as my new DIY envelope pillows that I shared yesterday. And today I can’t wait to show you the rest of the spring-ifying that has been going on round these parts…

So, without further ado… here is our spring entry/living/dining room.

Enough talk, it’s time for the pictures to do the talking.

Those adorable watercolor bunny pictures are free Watercolor Printables by Alexis at Persia Lou– thanks Alexis! I just used PicMonkey to resize them to fit my frames and printed them on 11×17 paper.

All the fabric for my cushions is from Tonic Living. I totally heart that cherry blossom print. It makes my heart pitter patter.

  1. Krista, I am probably overlooking it, but can’t find your email contact info. I wanted to ask you to be part of my favorite room series. I love your cute colorful home! Please email me at kimnichols45@hotmail.com.

    1. Aw, thanks so much Carrie!! The pillows are easy to make- and I have a bit of a gallery wall addiction (something you may share with me?? lol)!!

    1. Thank you Alicia!! I love our window too- it lets in so much natural light. You don’t really realized how essential that light is until you live in a dark house – part of the appeal of this house was the brightness of it! I just wish that window faced our lake view instead of our neighbours house – oh well:) Thanks so much for organizing and getting us going on this parade!!

  2. You are amazing Krista, you home is simply breathtaking! Seriously I love it all! You are hired, come on over, my home could use some of your magic!

    1. Hahaha Mindi! You seem to be doing amazingly on your own- wish I could build like you!! Thanks so much for your sweet comments!

  3. Gorgeous spring tour!! Love all the bright and happy colors! Was browsing the Tonic Living website last night (after I saw it on your sight) & will hopefully place my order today. What a fabulous selection… Thx so much for sharing. Do you have an email address on here Krista, or maybe not? No worries if you don’t! Just had a quick question! Thanks for a fabulous tour of your home!

    1. Hi Kendra!

      I think I have put it in my “about” section – I should add a “contact me” page. My email address is krista@thehappyhousie.com

      Isn’t TonicLiving amazing! I love them… right now I am waiting anxiously for some samples to come for our Master Bedroom!!

  4. Love how you’ve added the touches of lavenders and purples. It really adds to the spring/Easter feeling you’ve created. Also love, love, love the new fabrics on the cushions. Great job, Krista!

    1. Thank you! I love the purple too – I have always liked purple but didn’t use it for a few years when we had a lot of red… I am so over the red now and excited to have some purple popping up again!

    1. Lol -thank you! I am totally honoured to have you come by- I absolutely love your fresh colorful style and designs!!

  5. Your home is so pretty and I LOVE all of the colors you use! What a beautiful and inspiring space to live in! Pinned 🙂

    1. Thank you April! I agree – I think that we have a spring/summer house- it suits those seasons best!

    1. Thanks Jenn! It has been through some changes but I am thrilled to have my springy painting back up in honour of spring!

  6. krista, i LOVE it! you are always so good with cheery colors! love the turquoise drop leaf with the purply chair! happy happy indeed!

    1. Thanks Cassie! I just did that chair the other day- so fun to add some purple again (and I used gold wax- super fun!!). Thrilled to be on this blog hop with you!

  7. I am always left craving bright colors when I visit your blog! I love how you have color EVERYWHERE! It is just so, well, spring-y!

    1. Thanks Jenna! I guess it is everywhere… though, to be honest, I would love the paint the walls white!! It would be such a fresh backdrop for all that colour:)

    1. Hi Christy! You can decorate anywhere, but natural light is there or it isn’t. We have had some dark houses so the natural light is probably my favourite thing about this house- it gets great exposure. Pretty key when you live half the year in a fog bank!!

  9. Seriously beautiful my friend! I love all the beautiful colors – it’s so bright and cheery and welcoming! You are so good with mixing colors and patterns! I just love ever little detail down to those yarn wrapped eggs 🙂 So glad to be on this tour with you!

    1. Thanks Kristen! I am seriously excited about having purple in our décor again – we had red for some long but I have been phasing it out, and the change feels great!

  10. Krista! Your home is so beautiful. You have a real gift for the gallery wall…I’m so inspired. I’m book-marking this post for a reference for hanging art & beautiful items. Thanks for letting us walk through 🙂

    1. Hi Meredith! I do love a me a gallery wall… I find it hard to just hang a single piece of art now, lol:) Thanks so much for coming by!!

    1. Thank you Julia!! I do love the natural light- we have skylights too… the light is one of my favourite things about our house (we lived in a dark house before so I appreciate the natural light so much now!).

    1. Haha – yes it is busting out Jenna! We have spring bursting outside too- all kinds of flowering trees and daffodils everywhere. I love the spring!! Thanks for coming by:)

  11. Krista,

    Your living room is breath taking with all of that light and the way that you have decorated. I would curl up on that couch chatting over a cup of coffee any day. 🙂 Beautiful spring tour!


    1. Thank you Sarah! I wish you could come over for a cup of coffee… and the natural light is one of my favourite parts of the room too!

    1. Lol Jen! Things around here are always an ongoing process… a little bit here, a little bit there… you know how it is!!
