March Decorating Ideas to Take You into Spring (Saturday Spotlight)

Hello friends! Welcome to the Saturday Spotlight, where each week, I highlight a different theme or topic to inspire you.  Since spring begins in March, I’m focusing on all things spring… Here in New Jersey, it’s already starting to feel like spring so I hope I don’t jinx it!  So today, I’m sharing March decorating ideas…

hello! I’M SHELLEY!

Welcome to my lifestyle blog, Calypso in the Country!

I hope to inspire you with budget friendly ways to create a home you love. My style is casual/traditional with some coastal touches… because everyday should feel like a vacation. Follow along as I share DIY projects, tablescapes, decorating ideas, anything blue and white, travel and more!

Welcome to Calypso in the Country

Welcome!  My name is Shelley and this is my blog – Calypso in the Country!

While you’re here, I hope to inspire you with home decor, entertaining tips, tablescapes and anything to make your home more beautiful! 

My decorating style leans toward traditional with a coastal twist and a splash of British Colonial!   I love adding color to my home but I tone it down with neutrals and textures. 

Basically, my goal is to make my home feel like a vacation that never ends.  Speaking of vacations, I occasionally share our travels on the blog as well.  Although as a busy family, we don’t get away as much as we’d like!
