Archival Fine Art Photograph by Lucy Snowe Photography - $75
The size and composition of this photograph is so beautiful. An exquisite natural element for any room.
Cattleya Papier Mache Mirror - $598
This is gorgeous — a bit of an investment, but what a beautiful statement piece for an entryway, bedroom or any room.
Entwined Leaf Rug - $398
I love this unique take on a jute area rug. Who says it has to be round, square or rectangle? This is sunshine at your feet.
Silver Mercury Lamps with Reed Shade
Gasp. I love the high shine on these lamps. And love the understated shades that let the lamps do all of the talking. Wouldn't they be great in gold too? What a lovely addition to a bedroom or sideboard.
Burlap Button Curtain - $99.95
I admit I am a bit of a burlap nut, so if you aren't on board with me on these, that's OK. I do love the simplicity and warmth of these curtains and the tiny buttons at the bottom are the icing on the cake.
Flame Leaf Bowl, Yellow - $16
What a pretty and cheerful little bowl to brighten your mornings. I am imagining these mixed in with an all-white place setting. Wouldn't that be pretty?
Architectural Blocks - $78
So cool! That is all I can think when I look at these blocks. I am sure you could make them into anything you wanted, but I would love to keep them just exactly as they are in the photo and put them on a coffee table.
Mama Bird And Her Nest Pillow - $49.95
These are so very sweet and would work well for spring. I always love a good bird motif — I just can't help it.
Native Quilt Pillow, Maize/Dijon Yellow By Shapescolors
Lovely, sunny pillows would instantly update a couch or room you are a bit underwhelmed with. Inspired by Native American art, they look great.
Art Print Ferns By Calamari Studio - $13
Subtle and pretty, this piece makes me want to be inside on a rainy spring day reading and keeping warm.
Found Moroccan Mosaic Kilim Rug
I love the neutrals in these rugs, they are warm and sophisticated. I would love them en masse like they are in this photo, no?
Vintage Bright Yellow Antique China Cabinet By The Southern Mermaid - $750
This vintage cabinet has great character with its half moon glass doors. Brighten up your kitchen, a corner or entryway with this handsome piece.
Woodacre Lantern - $112
Spring weather is the beginning of porch weather. I instantly begin thinking of ways to spruce up my front porch. These lanterns have a great beachy vibe that would be a welcome addition to any space.
Escheveria In Clay Pot - $125
I'm always a fan of finding new ways to add a little bit of greenery to my home. This succulent arrangement is gorgeous. And succulents are so practical, especially if you have a tendency to kill most plants that make it across your doorstep (like me).
Yellow Storage Tub - $9.95
Here is a sunshiny work horse for pretty much anywhere in your home. Use it in the early days of spring and moving into summer when you may need to corral anything from shoes to wet towels.
Whistling Thorn Wallpaper - $88
When I look at this beautiful wallpaper, I think metallic meets kraft. It is perfect for a serene, laid-back vibe in the bedroom or entryway.
Antique Grape Lug - $28
These humble vessels are great for so many things. Plant a row of lavender, corral all the little odds and ends of the day, or use it in the kitchen for linens. What would you use it for?
Hand-woven 'Honey' Striped 100% Cotton Summer Blanket By mexchic
Use this as a lightweight throw during the sunnier, but still potentially chilly days of spring. Or, use it as a picnic blanket or beach mat.
Unique Climbing Rope Light by Atelier 688 - $350
I love the texture of rope, and this light would be super cool on a covered porch or in a kitchen.
