Sneak peek: spring apartment makeover

It's almost spring.  Almost.  As soon as it becomes March, though, I start to feel like I can wear bright colors and occasionally flip-flops on those sunny days--the weather isn't so different from February here, but it's March, the month when spring begins!  Time to look fresh!
The same goes for my decor.  I moved into this apartment in the fall and dominated the decor with rust and warm golden neutrals, and recently I have been so SICK OF IT!  I sold my table and chairs with the terra cotta Waverly print, I spray-painted my terra cotta lamp (again), and I brought in whites, turquoise, and pink!  This is my spring palatte.
Here are some of my inspiration images:
From Bijou Kaleidoscope:
From Canadian House & Home:
From Bolig Magasinet:
From ?
From Apartment Therapy:
From Pink to Green:
So pretty!
As soon as I finish my couch pillows and my wallpapering project, I will blog thoroughly about it all and share the before and after pics with you!
But for now, here's a sneak peek so you can preview my decor... what do you think so far?  What do I need more of?
These flowers are probably my favorite thing...Dollar Tree!
Sectional couch views...
Still working on the pillow covers.  I whipped a bunch up the other day but am not sure how well they go together...
And there's my chairs, of course:
And here's something I'm really excited about (stay tuned for the whole story!):
Enjoy the weekend!  Hope I get lots of projects done so I can share them with you next week...
