On This First Day Of Spring 2013

Today marks the long awaited first day of Spring 2013.

I am welcoming the season with a raised glass of sweet tea, a luscious new hanging fern for the front porch, and the A/C set to comfortable.

Spring doesn’t stay around very long in Louisiana, but while it is here it is made to feel right at home.

Color wakes up exteriors, interiors, landscapes, and home decor accessories.  I am really loving this living area.  It is comfortable, color rich, and has great lighting- both natural and recessed.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are coming from a farm to a market to a table in seasonal freshness and goodness.

Neutral color palettes need not be color deficient, especially in one with natural light, open doors, and crisp white curtains.

Throw pillows easily infuse seasonal color, pattern, and texture into the space.

  1. Great post, Darleen! Things started greening up around here a couple of weeks ago; and a few things have started to bloom. I’ve enjoyed opening all of the windows and just getting some fresh air in. This is one of my favorite seasons!

  2. The colors and blooms are waking up here as well. It rained last night and the streets are lined in “pollen gold” this morning- the calling card of the season. Into every spring a little rain and pollen must fall!

  3. Looking for the Natural World Plates. Can you advise where I can get them. Anthropology has only one plate.
    Thank you for your help.


  4. Charlotte,

    I did an extensive search and came up with the same Anthropology result, also checking the secondary markets with no luck. I wish I could have gotten in on the “Green Bugs” plate marked down to $1.95! If I come across sets in my sourcing I will let you know.
