NON-Color Spring Decor!!

 

 

white

adj \ˈhwīt, ˈwīt\
whit·erwhit·est

Definition of WHITE

a : free from color

White is a non color according to the dictionary and yet we are all in love with the freshness it can give to a room.

Now that Spring has officially arrived it is a wonderful element to add to our decor to liven and freshen up our homes for the up-coming Spring Season.
White is an easy non-color to add to any home. I thought I would show you  some fun Spring/Easter ideas in all white.

Just a few well placed white elements keeps this mantle light and airy. I like the fun addition of the paper ribbon chain.  This would be a fast and simple way to get your home ready for Easter.

via apartment therapy (467x700) I think a group of these sitting on a shelf or a mantle with simple white votives would look amazing. I love when something is done in mass. Keep in mind garden ornaments look wonderfully textural when brought inside. I have two large cement urns holding ferns on my mantle. The urns are very heavy and meant for outside but I love the way they look on my white mantle.

Simple white pillows that have been stenciled and embroidered with a bunny silhouette makes a perfect vignette.

White daffodils and variations of white eggs in simple pedestal bowls is a wonderful fresh take on Spring decor.

If you like the idea of using all white eggs I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it was worth sharing with my readers………

How about adding texture with a texture medium or I wonder if white glue would work and then paint over it with paint. I think a bowl full of these textured eggs would be fantastic. A beautiful rough textured dark woven basket with white eggs would also be great.

Spring doesn’t always have to be full of color, sometimes simple white will say just enough.

Can you see yourself doing an all white table for this year’s Easter table?

I'm such a color person, I don't know that I could do all white, but I love the bunny pillows on the bench and those textured eggs. So pretty! I think I'll have the kids help me with a colored paper chain for our mantel, like the one in your first pic. Thanks for sharing.

Love the white tulips with little touches of spring green and the dark wood of the table and chairs. Very fresh.

I am really loving the white eggs with the white tulips display! I may use something similar for my Easter table! As always thanks for the inspiration:)

Kathysue, I loved the white tablescape with the eggs and tulips. White is so fresh and clean looking. I am wondering if I could pull that off. I will be making arrangements for my daughters house because we are having Easter there. She would love the white I think.
Beautiful pictures my friend!

I am so with you and it is so funny because I was telling my daughter that one of my favorite color's is white. My husband than proceeds to pipe up and tell her that white is the absence of color. Not sure we needed to go into that right then, but oh well!! :)

Casa Bella said...

I love white, as long as I mix it with a pop of very bright color somewhere. Love this post!

Blondie's Journal said...

I love the white eggs and the thought of putting tulips in them set in an egg cup is a great idea. I think I am going to try this!

With April coming at the end of this week, I'm still trying to wrap my arms around March disappearing so quickly... With all the white we had this winter, I'm leaning toward color for Easter this year!

I've only ever considered pastels for Easter until reading your post...

Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration

Very crisp looking. Like the all white table with the eggs in the vase of flowers.

Carol@SofasandSage.com said...

An all white table would be STUNNING! What a great inspiration :) Guess it's time to start thinking about the Easter table. Yikes. Where's the time going??

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Kathysue, I do have a new fondness for white. Such pretty ideas. Love the bunnies.

Loft32 said...

Kathysue! I love the table decor...and I AM a sucker for some faux bamboo chairs...the contrast of the dark wood dining set with the crisp white accents are perfect in my opinion.

XO,
Candace

White is one of my favourite colours, and it's not because of my Swedish DNA! :)

Love your pictures and all the cute little bunnies. Isabella - my daughter - would love those pillows. Do you know who they are by?

P.S. Still thinking of your beautiful post on Holding Forth. xx

Nothing screams spring and summer more than adding something white. Decorations, pillows, anything.. sometimes I've even changed a coffee table to white. Love the peacefulness and freshness it brings!! All those Easter ideas in white are so chic!!

designchic said...

Love the eggs with the tulips...great idea!!

Blooming Rose Musings said...

Oh my goodness Kathysue, those white tulips and white eggs are so elegant and sophisticated. I have to admit that I do love white and the images you have chosen make me love it all the more. I am so looking forward to your Easter tablescape. I wonder what you have decided to do!?!

Uncovered Ruby said...

Kathysue, those white on white textured eggs are so cool! I might have to give that a whirl. It looks like the yolks were blown out. I also adore the bunny pillows on the bench, cute, cute, cute! Lisa ;-)

Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle said...

I adore groupings of white serving pieces or dishes displayed en masse. It always has a spring/summery feel. The white tablescape is my favorite here.
