Spring decorating at the Oak house….

Now that the book is over and in editing phase, Oak house is back on the market. I don’t need it as a studio space any more so we are hoping that  a part of God’s plan is finding a new owner to love it! If anyone is interested in a little,cozy just over 1,000 square foot home in the western suburbs of Chicago, send me an e-mail! It’s a great starter home, or since it’s one one level with no basement a nice little house for some one who doesn’t want stairs.I wanted to dress it up a little bit with some fresh flowers for spring for the open houses and showings, so I thought I would share some pictures with you of Spring decorating at the Oak house!

Fresh hyacinth'sI bought Hyacinth’s at TJ’s for $2.49 each. They just smell amazing and make the entire place seem bright and cheerful.

Nice vignette on vintage tableI also love this little spring vignette on the side table. Those cement birds are my favorite!

Pretty cottage kitchenI found a sideboard at Hobby Lobby to use as a kitchen island.

I think it’s a perfect fit for the space!

  2. OMG, where are the car keys, + how quickly can I get my hands on some fragrant hyacinths, a.k.a. “February morale boosts”? ? ?
    This house is charming as all get-out! I love it!
    Fingers crossed for a super speedy sale!

  3. My favorite sunny house! I’ll bet that it’s beautiful today with the sun shining and the smell of those hyacinths! I hope that the Oak House’s new owners find it soon. I know that they’re out there and are ready to love all of the wonderful things that you’ve done to this special home!

  4. Jen, the house is so cute…I can’t imagine that it not selling quickly not the spring is coming around. Keeping fingers crossed for you.

    Now is the Spring Refresh party coming soon? I need to mark my calendar. 🙂

  5. I’m new here…but I feel like I’ve found a lost twin I didn’t know I had! I have the same table and chairs as your kitchen (painting them TODAY), the same accent tables in your living room painted the same colors and the same vintage trunk. Clearly I have to check in often for new ideas. 🙂 Simply lovely.

  6. I just love your cottage . The dinning table is beautiful and I was wondering where you got it from

    1. Hi Kathi, I found it at an state sale in our area. It’s a great antique library table.

  7. I’m a first-time visitor, hello! I really love the French Door inspired divider between your living room and dining space. It adds character, defines the space and brings through the light all at once.

  8. You make a house a home! Are you willing to share where you found the light fixture above your dining room table? I have been looking for something like it!

  9. Loved everything! Just wondering where the pretty lamp with horizontal pleated shade is from? Thanks!
