St. Patrick’s Day Home Tour

I was so excited when Meg, from Green With Decor, invited me to join in on the Green St. Patrick’s Day Home Tour! If you haven’t visited Meg’s blog, head over there right now and check out her fun St. Patty’s Day Decor, then you can continue through the rest of the home and decor tours at the bottom of this post.

Typically, my holiday decor style is very simple and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. I have added a lot of green in the form of plants and few other Irish touches to our living room/entryway to celebrate the holiday and help welcome in Spring. Let’s start in the foyer and work our way around the room!

We normally have a book page wreath hanging on the gray door going to the garage, but I moved a few items here and there to change things up and now have a springy boxwood wreath in it’s place.

This small wood dresser sits just inside of our front door and houses all of our winter accessories (hats, gloves, scarves, etc.) and kids’ art supplies.

I think it is such a pretty piece of furniture, but have honestly been thinking about *gasp* painting it.

Since I have a tendency to kill live plants (my thumb may be a bit herbicidal), I tend to keep several of the faux variety around. The topiary is a simple DIY that I made awhile ago.

Continuing around the room, you’ll find my heirloom piano (it was my Mom’s).

Piano Decor Silhouettes Ivy

Above it are some simple silhouettes of my kids, which are so easy to make. I added some real ivy in a milk glass vase/bowl and I love how it spills over the edges with its waterfall of leaves.

Next to the piano is our comfy and cozy Ikea Ektorp sofa. Recently, we switched our all white cover to this beige-y one and we are still trying to decide if we like it. It tends to show less dirt than the white one, but I did appreciate that I could see any stains and opt to wash the covers as soon as I did.

And no St. Patrick’s Day Home Tour would be complete without a Shamrock plant (also real). Let’s hope I can keep this one alive!

I’m kind of in love with this chalkboard right now. I do my own chalkboard lettering and created this nifty design of an Irish proverb/blessing which seemed appropriate for a home tour.

Neutral Living Room Chalkboard

“May your home always be too small to hold all your friends.”

I also whipped up this little, green pom pom garland. Our cat, Rowan, seems to think I made it just for him and has pretty much annihilated it already.

And that brings us back around to the foyer. I hung up this old horseshoe for good luck. Did you know that how you hang your horseshoe is a controversial topic? Really. It’s a thing. I didn’t find out which way was correct (up or down), but people seem to have a lot of opinions about it.

    Your home is so pretty! I love all of the green touches. That chalkboard and the saying is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day! I love that the piano was your mom’s – pieces like that are so special!

    I think plants is a lovely way to bring green into an interior. With your beautiful neutral background the green really pops! The pom pom garland is super cute (I almost made one too) and I like your horseshoe! I had no idea there was controversy on how to hang it. I hope mine is okay sitting on the coffee table. lol

      Thank you so much, Kathy! I’m sure your horseshoe is just fine where it is. I think the controversy was more about whether it should hang right side up or up side down on the wall. ;)
