Its officially spring now, and I hear the birds returning back and we wake up to their sweet chirping. A sign that our long winter days are coming to an end. Spring brings with it life, hope, joy and color after the dark winters. So, time to switch to spring decor. Join me as I take you on a cosy spring home tour of our country home in Switzerland.
I have been postponing sharing my home pictures for a long time. Our homes are private and not for display always. I am grateful to have a home in the country during these trying times.
Recently, my sister wanted to see our home at least virtually since she couldn’t visit as planned last year. So, I made a home tour video and decided to share our cosy spring home tour for my family and subscribers. I usually shared snippets of our home during Christmas, but it was mostly our garden.
We have been living here since 5 years and had already laid the foundation for this home way back in 2014. We love living in the Swiss country side and have grown to love our home which we could plan from scratch.
OUR COSY LIVING ROOM
Our home is split into 3 levels. The ground floor is one huge open plan living space. I love this and wouldn’t have it any other way. We have our kitchen, living and dining area perfect for cooking, entertaining and relaxing all on this floor.
The above picture is of our living area. I prefer to have very minimal decor to stand the test of day to day life. On the coffee table I used faux roses in a crystal vase to bring some nature elements in. Hopefully, we can get fresh garden flowers soon. Since, I like to nap on the sofa, I threw a beige cashmere throw on our 2 seater sofa. Changed the cushion covers to a more neutral shade.
Our dining table faces the entrance door. But this doesn’t bother us in the least. The reason we moved it from the kitchen area is for the garden view. So we can enjoy the garden from the inside through the wall to wall window even during the cold and rainy days without even stepping out.
I used a table runner with spring colors to freshen up the space. For the flowers, I have some faux carnations in a vase and this matches the table runner. Since, its still winter there are no real flowers, therefore faux flowers come to my rescue.
The Kitchen underwent a major transformation because I started my spring cleaning routine. I cleared up the counter top and placed a few tulips and Easter bells near the kitchen sink and stove top. Can’t wait to decorate with real flowers soon in the next few months.
COSY MASTER BEDROOM
My husband and I are not big fans of too many cushions lying around anywhere in our home. Moreover, I don’t like to be clearing up all the cushions before going to bed. We are very minimalist in this aspect. The walls of the master bedroom were empty for a long time. Finally, I could convince my husband to hang one of our favorite framed silk painting above the bed. We moved this painting from the guest room. And that is all the decor we need, less dusting and less maintenance.
In the guest bedroom too, I have kept the decor minimal and cosy. For this room, I hanged 2 handmade embroideries on two of the walls. One was from my mother which is probably about 50 years old,. We managed to keep it unstained and safe for framing until last year. And the other is a cross stitch of mine, which I made during my school days.
