Spring has sprung in our neck of the woods and I’ve been inspired by the clean and organic images popping up all over the blog world. Let’s purge our homes of dark, winter decor and start anew with crisp, white bedding; fresh flowers; and natural, oceanic decor. Read on for this week’s inspirations:

To me, there’s nothing worse than nautical style gone awry. Palm tree accessories makes me nauseous and the thought of a fish-themed tablecloth makes me cringe. When I saw the picture above, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Oceanic decor that doesn’t scream “Ahoy, matey!” — is this a dream? Yes, you can incorporate your love for the beach without looking tacky or themed. The secret is to add natural elements from the sea to your existing style. My personal favorite is coral:

Sometimes, we can get quite carried away with color. Red walls, blue sofas and yellow bedding can all be a little hectic. Crisp, white bedding is truly a breath of fresh air in an over-styled and over-colored world. White linens are versatile and can be dressed up or down as you please. Here are some of my favorite looks:
