While snow may have fallen this past week, March 19th has come and past on the calendar which means one thing: spring is officially here which means the cabin was in need of a spring home decor refresh. While Christmas lights and all things red and green will always have a special place in my heart, there is something that spring home decor does to my spirit – whether it’s the lighter colors or the happy patterns, spring radiates joy and if there’s one thing I want our home to be, it’s joyful.
This is our first spring in the cabin now that it has been fully renovated. To give you an idea of what the cabin looked like before we went crazy renovating, you can take a peek at this post which showed the cabin as it was ready for fall back in 2018. What a difference a year can make. With a brand new kitchen, painted walls and trim, a floor that has been re-stained, an updated fireplace, new stairwell and railing, and some new furniture and decor, you could say a few things have changed around here. Ready to take a look around? Come on in, your cup of coffee [or glass of wine, whatever your preference] awaits…
Welcome! Now that you’ve made it through the front door lets round the corner and take a step inside my favorite area in the cabin, our kitchen and dining room. We worked with Interior design by Shalmai Keim to cast a vision for what we should with this space and she delivered big time. I would have never thought of doing green kitchen cabinets but I couldn’t love them more [for reference – the cabinet color is Benjamin Moore Caldwell Green]. Not only did we get new cabinets, we created a whole new layout for the kitchen. Take a look around – you’ll notice all of the links for anything I could find online are placed below each photo!

Next stop – the living room. We’ve added a few new pieces of furniture, placed 15 too many pillows for Shawn’s liking [I swear, men and pillows..], hung a few new signs, swapped out the area rug and have spent many [many] days and nights lounging on the gray couch you see below.

While I’d love to take you upstairs, it is still a little bit of a work in progress up there with some paint jobs being finished so we’ll venture up there another day. Until then, these two boys want to say thank you for stopping by but next time, please bring a bone or treats 😉

When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
