I recently realized that my home needed some serious sprucing up for spring! After I took down Christmas decorations I haven’t really made any changes around the house.  After a glorious spring break in Florida I am craving blues, creamy whites and soft beiges – anything that reminds me of sand, vibrant blue water, and bright sunshine.  So when Gordmans asked if I’d like to shop their store to update my home for spring I jumped at the chance!  If you remember over the holidays, I worked with Gordmans to update my mantel for Christmas; since all those decorations came down, the mantel was looking a little blank and sad.  Since Gordmans is constantly getting new arrivals (once a week at least!) I knew they would have plenty to update my mantel for spring.

Like I mentioned I wanted to infuse a coastal, cool, modern, beachy look to my living room mantel. I was thrilled when I found these gorgeous pottery vases for less than $20 each; the small ones were only $6.99. I mean, such a good deal!  The throw pillows were all on sale for $11 which is a steal because they are gorgeous in person. The big tobacco baskets were under $30 each and I had been looking for something similar for a while (they are a perfect pop of texture to the space).  The benches in front of the fireplace were only $39.99 and the huge galvanized bin for extra pillows and blankets was only $29.99.  I was, as usual, completely thrilled with the prices and I think it really came together nicely.  Finally that piece of my home is complete and I love that when I spend time in the room I feel at least one step closer to the beach.
