Urban Jungle Bloggers: Green Easter Styling

This is my first time to join the Urban Jungle Bloggers community on their monthly posts of sharing greenery. 

This month's subject matter is spring styling/Easter. So I'm showing the colors and vignettes of spring in my city apartment.

And on my patio, a privacy fence-enclosed area that makes my living space so much larger and more dear to me. 

I have many containers of herbs and plants in my large outdoor space, and spring is telling them to wake up. 

And slowly but surely, they are doing just that. Starting with tulips, which I planted in the fall on top of the summer perennials.

I can hardly take a photo without diva Abi managing to get in the pic. Here she is yawning.

My recently redesigned boho apartment awakens the senses, and the bright colors compliment the plants, I think. 

Happy spring, everyone! Bring some greenery into your home and naturally purify the air you breathe. A touch of living greenery is always an asset to any room.


  1. The bright, vivid colors next to all your gorgeous plants just makes me happy! Thanks for the beautiful eye candy today.

  2. I love all the color next to your greenery, Brenda. Your whole place just looks cheerful and ALIVE! Love it. xo Diana

  3. Brenda - Your home is beautiful... Not only have you filled it with wonderful colors, but so much life with your healthy, vibrant plants. Just lovely ! It must be a joy to be at home.....Not forgetting the adorable, loving pooches !

  4. Beautiful photos! I think you need to change your blog name to Cozy Little Home since you're living in an apartment now, and you've managed to make it just as lovely as the houses you've lived in in the past. You create a beautiful home for yourself and the pupsters wherever you live!

    1. I've thought of that, but I have paid for the .com domain through 2017. And cozylittlehome.com is already taken.

  5. Your home looks so cheerful, Brenda.
    You've really created a special place for you and the pups.

  6. Brenda, I like he way things look around your place. I am not good with house plants, but love to garden. Blessings,xoxo,Susie

  17. Home is where you hang your hat ! You sure have made your house/home/apartment a joyous/colorful place in which to live. I loved all of your red but am enjoying all of your colors and the plants to go with them.. The "homes/pots", in which plants live both inside and outside are beautiful too.
    Little Miss Abi wants everyone to know that she loves living in your colorful surroundings too.

  19. Vibrant colors and so cozy. Beautiful home and dog btw!

  20. Ahhh, the darling photo bomber!! All that oxygen from the plants is making her sleepy! :)
    Your place looks so cheerful with the bright colors. Happy weekend.
    BTW, we love The Blacklist!

  21. I hadn't realized, until I read this post, just how much surrounding color affects plants. I guess I always thought of the plant as being the center star. Now, I see that the vase is just as important. Interesting, Brenda, I love to find a new way to think about things. -Ginene

  22. I love the pops of colour in your home, the green sideboard is beautiful!

  23. Wow! So vibrant and colorful, Brenda! And love the peek of your dog too ;) Welcome to our green family of Urban Jungle Bloggers!


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
