Lilac season is here and I am so excited to show you how I decorate with them in my English Cottage influenced spring home tour!
It’s that time of year again…lilac season! The time of year here in Michigan where everything blooms and comes to life. The time of year when you sleep with the windows open and wake up to the sounds of birds chirping. I just love this time of year! I also love having fresh flowers throughout my home as you can see in my English Cottage influenced spring home tour!
If you have questions about any of the rooms you see in this tour, please leave a comment below. Today I’ll be starting in my entryway, moving to my living room, then my dining room and ending in our galley style kitchen.
Lilacs might just be my favorite flower, and I’m so thankful that we have a very large lilac tree right next to our home. The Lord knew how much I would love them each spring!
Our lilacs are a light purple variety, but a sweet friend down the street has a long row of white lilacs that are stunning. We asked if I could clip some and she was so kind to let us take some! I’m not sure if she reads my blog but if so – thank you Emily!!
We actually planted more lilacs along our fence in the backyard, but it looks like most of them are coming in purple. I will have to hunt for some white varieties to plant back there as well! I just love mixing the different colors.
If you saw my lilac post from last year, I actually incorporated an even darker variety that a sweet older gentlemen let me clip from his yard. If you love lilacs as much as I do, you’ll have to check out that post after you finish this one!
I’m curious – do you prefer reading blog posts and looking at pictures, or watching video? I try to provide both on my blog because I know some prefer to read, and some prefer to watch. If you watch the tour linked above, you’ll notice that I didn’t narrate the video like I normally do.
There’s not much I’ll say about this tour on the blog, either. I simply wanted to provide some inspiration for your spring decorating. Photographing flowers brings me so much joy and it’s such a fun, creative process for me. I look forward to this tour every year and I hope that it inspires you in some way!
I hope you enjoyed my English Cottage influenced spring home tour!
