Spring Floral Fashion

Get ready for spring and add some flower power to your wardrobe with one or more of these fun floral inspired pieces. (click through for links to each item)

The weather here in Florida went from crisp and cool to hot and humid over night. Florida really likes to skip over spring time and go straight into summer. While many of you are still snowed in, I’m getting ready for the near 90 temperatures we’ll be having this week. One thing we both can probably agree on, is that spring weather cannot come soon enough!

Here are a few of my favorite floral items so you can add some spring pattern to your wardrobe.

DIY Kate Spade Saturday Painted Straw Placemats

March 9, 2015

You don't need to be an artist to create your own set of Kate Spade Saturday inspired placemats. Such a fun way to dress up your table for spring!

Now that spring feels like it’s officially come to Florida, I want to add as many bright, floral things to our home as I possibly can. My go-to spring color palette is usually mint, coral and gold but I decided to swap that palette for a more modern mix of colors. I’ve adored the new Kate Spade Saturday collection for West Elm since I launched (I mean have you seen this arm chair?) so I thought it would be fun to create a set of placemats that are inspired by the collection.

I starred with a set of ready-made round woven placemats and added a mix of muted pink, grayish blue, white, yellow and black paint. The best part about this project is that you don’t need to be an artist. A large paint brush makes it super easy to create loose brush strokes that almost resemble flowers. So perfect for spring!

Use a larger paint brush to transform ready-made woven straw placemats into bold floral ones inspired by the Kate Spade Saturday collection.

Time: 30 minutes + drying time
Supplies
: straw placemats / craft paint / large paint brush

Step 1: Starting with the lightest color, paint large brush strokes in a floral-like pattern around the placemat. Alternate colors until you’re happy with the results. Super simple!

Loving this DIY Kate Spade Saturday inspired painted placemat! So cute!

Wondering how to make your home ready for spring? Try one of these simple DIY projects to add some bright, spring color to your home!

Yay, it’s (almost )the weekend! My weekend will be full of Meet + Make prep and cleaning up my office because things get a bit crazy around here before every workshop. I mean, there are craft supplies EVERYWHERE. I’ll also be spending time at the barn, riding my horse and enjoying the warm weather. Florida weather is funny. It went from one of the coldest weeks of the year straight into the upper 80s. Forget spring, it feels like summer here!

If you’re looking for something fun to DIY this week, here are my favorites from this week.

1. This room makeover is full of amazing details. The DIY side table and gold grid wall are my fave.

2. Can you believe these wall frames are made from Ikea cork trivets?

3.  I adore these pastel and gold painted pots.

4. If these giant paper flowers don’t make you want spring to come asap, I don’t know what will!
