Spring Fling Home Tour

Spring Fling Tour

Spring Fling Transitional

Hi Everyone! I’m so honored to be a part of the Spring Fling Home Tour with 19 other talented bloggers. Starting today, March 21st until March 28th, there will be a group of bloggers showcasing a specific type of decorating style. Today’s tours include the transitional and vintage styles. You will definitely want to make sure to stop by each day to get some inspiration from all the other bloggers. If you’re new to Love Your Abode, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m a Korean-American southern girl living in GA with my awesome hubby and 3 kids. I love making our house a home and sharing all about it at Love Your Abode. 

It’s hard to nail down my design aesthetic since I love the country rustic warmth of a home but with some modern glam touches. I also love a little mid century and global decor so you’ll see all of that incorporated inside our home. I believe a home doesn’t have to be just one particular style but a mixture of them if that’s what you truly love. So, grab a cup of coffee or tea if you’re like me and come on in!

Last year, my friend surprised me with this beautiful “M” door hanger. I love changing out the ribbon for different seasons. I’ve been using this lovely grainsack ribbon I found at Michaels for all of my wreaths. It has a springy feel to it and I love anything blue so it naturally fits right in our home.

Our foyer is a bit narrow because we have two staircases that unite on the middle landing. I added a few spring touches to the foyer by adding some fresh tulips and hanging one of our turkish towels that are normally used at the pool. I’m all about multi-purpose! I discovered that old mirror out next to the trash bins from our neighbor’s house and snatched it up. I painted it white and it has been sitting pretty on the foyer table ever since. I love a mixture of old and new and am never too proud to salvage old thrifted treasures especially if they were a roadside rescue.

On the left side, you’ll see my dining room turned office. I transformed this room last year when I noticed our dining room wasn’t getting used all that much. I absolutely love sitting here and getting my work done. It’s great because it’s next to the kitchen and right across the playroom. I won’t be sharing the playroom today. Just imagine toys, books, and crafts strewn about the entirety of the room. I have three kids and a husband so remember, I’m only sharing the clean parts of my home today. Can you believe I got that fake tree for $3 at a garage sale recently? 

IMG_0487-1

I kept the dining table in this room to use as a desk but took out both the middle sections. The bookshelves hold some of my table linens, office supplies, cake platters, and other home decor. The best part is that we can change it to a dining area when needed. I love my bold pink rug and feel I can get away with it more in here since I’ve claimed it as my personal working space. 

IMG_0416-1

Going down the hallway, you’ll enter into our main family room and kitchen. It’s all a big area and we love the layout of our home especially with young children. You will usually find us hanging out here or in the kitchen with all three kids. I love being able to keep an eye on them when I’m in the kitchen. 

IMG_0436-1

When the warm weather hit Georgia, I was ready to change out the gray slipcovers from our Ikea couches and change them to white. I know some people are hesitant to have any white decor with children but we love it because, hello bleach! 

IMG_0437-1

I may or may not have played musical tulips around the house. 

IMG_0369-1

I couldn’t help it, they’re just so pretty!

We’ve had this blue plaid couch ever since we got married over 13 years ago and it’s held up quite well even after 3 kids. Unfortunately, the other matching sofa didn’t survive.  One day, we’ll probably switch it out for another white slipcovered couch but for now, it stays. 

IMG_0449-1

The large window was found in an antique market and I recently hung my spring wreath with that same grainsack ribbon. 

IMG_0443-1

The three tiered wooden tray from Homegoods changes often with every season. I love placing real and faux succulents on the tray. 

IMG_0465-1

Our midcentury credenza functions as an entertainment center. My husband drilled holes in the back so that the cords are all tucked away inside. I tried to blend the tv in by using a gallery wall on both sides. 

IMG_0470-1

I recently decided to place some books to prop the mini speakers. It can be difficult hiding TV equipment so instead, I just incorporated some of my favorite things like books and blue and white Asian inspired pieces. All of my blue and white pieces were thrifted like that $4 lamp!

IMG_0226-1

I found that midcentury coffee table for $10 on Craigslist. Yes, you read that right. $10!!

IMG_0423-1

One of my favorite DIY projects was the huge paper wreath. It gets moved around the house with the changing seasons and I recently put it back over the mantle. It’s neutral but still makes a bold statement with it’s size and texture. Since the kids work on the breakfast table quite a bit, the gray DIY dresser holds all of their crafts, workbooks, coloring books, etc. 

IMG_0433-1

Tulips really do remind me of Spring. A vase of flowers is always my favorite home decor. They instantly bring color, life, and beauty to any space.

IMG_0488-1

A bowl of fake artichokes, real and fake orchids bring in a fresh springy feel to the rustic bookcase that hold a bunch of our wedding and family pictures. 

IMG_0462-1

The kitchen is the heart of our home where I spend a lot of time cooking, baking, and hosting friends and family. We love having people over and many meals have been eaten around that island and table. If you can believe it, our cabinets used to be a dark wood color and I spontaneously decided to start painting it one day about a year ago. I’m so glad we did it because it has truly brightened our space. It was definitely our hardest DIY to date and about midway through, I started kicking myself for being so crazy. You can read about all that madness here

Last week, I shared some Easter inspired tablescapes.

    Yuni…your home is amazingly beautiful. We love your sense of style. Can’t believe the deal on your coffee table – and it look fantastic in your home.

      Thank you, Vicki and Jennifer! Yes, I can’t believe the deal either. I for sure thought it was a mistake too because it seemed too cheap. My husband skeptically thought it was a tiny coffee table for a dollhouse. Ha!!
