This is the last weekend for the Spring Ideas House 2011 at Bachman’s on Lyndale. If you have time, rejuvenate yourself with a leisurely tour of the house, garden center, and store.

The theme of this Spring Ideas House is “European Romance.” A light, airy and refreshing antidote to our long, cold winter. The design team did a wonderful job conveying that feeling, largely in part, by the paint colors they chose. Flowers, plants, bedding, repurposed and new accessories, and fragrant lilies all add to the ambience of the house.

Once again there are many repurposed accessories mixing it up with the newbies. My favorite is the barn door/headboard in the boy’s room. I do love my barn doors used as interior features. Have you been to the Spring Ideas House? What’s your favorite feature of the house?

Bachman’s Spring Ideas House is open until Sunday, April 17, 2011. Tickets are $5 and all guests will receive a coupon for $5 off their purchase of $25 or more at Bachman’s Floral, Gift and Garden Stores. Call 612-861-7311 for tickets or order online.
