Spring is almost here! Our late winter has been miserable here in the Midwest, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Now is the time that I like to think about how I’m going to add some bright and airy spring decor touches to my home. Since I haven’t done my actual decorating yet (I’m still planning, just like you!), I thought I would share some of the inspiration that I love.
Spring Dining Room Inspo
Michelle over at The Painted Hinge shared her spring dining room decor last year. Her design is beautiful and timeless. Some of the pieces she has chosen to incorporate include:
- Birds’ nests with speckled eggs
- Wood crates
- White chippy bunnies
- Vintage teacups and saucers
- Pretty pastel glass dinnerware
- Vintage scales
- Rustic trays – wood and metal
- Wire baskets
- Vintage books
- Greenery stems
- Seed packets with vintage spring images
What I love most about this design is that Michelle carried it through her entire space. The vignettes on the dining room table, buffet, and coffee table all match perfectly!
Spring Kitchen Inspo
Clean & Scentsible has some beautiful ideas for spring kitchen decor. Jenn really focused on simple additions to her kitchen decor to liven it up for spring. It’s all about fresh flowers (those pink tulips are GORGEOUS!), faux greenery, ivory bunnies, and a clean and fresh design.
I love how she styled her hutch! The foundation of creamy white items, mixed with pops of blue, green, and those cute little orange carrots makes for such a happy, fresh space.
Spring Living Room Inspo
Beth at Home Stories A to Z has put together a beautiful compilation of spring decorating ideas from around the interwebs. I pulled out just a few of my favorites to highlight here for you.
The aspects that I love most from these designs include:
- Fresh flowers – a necessity all over the house in the spring!
- Greenery – again, a necessity for spring
- Sweet rain boots on display in the entryway
- Vintage watering cans
- Grapevine wreaths – so versatile AND they sell them at the dollar store!
- Bright, airy, and simple designs
- The dishes in that china cabinet filled with plants with all sorts of textures
Spring Porch Inspo
One of my favorite parts of Spring is that I get to start using my front porch again. I swear, I dream about this during our cold Midwest winters. The Prudent Penny Pincher blog has a great blog curating some beautiful Spring porch decor ideas.
I picked out some of my favorites above. The pieces I love include:
- Showcasing flowers in an open lantern
- The old bicycle with a wicker basket filled with fresh flowers
- Unexpected wood pieces, like the picket fence section and little stool
- More vintage watering cans (I can’t get enough!)
- Burlap, metal, and glass flower vessels of all shapes and sizes
- The chandelier painted with little flower pots (my goal is to make one for myself!)
Spring DIY Projects
Katie over at Little House of Four put together a list of easy and thrifty DIY projects for Spring decor. I am a sucker for a good do-it-yourself project. Really, I am just a sucker for a project. I like to stay busy! Haha!
A few of my favorites are above. I intend on creating every one of them over the next couple of months. It’s not just about the DIY projects though, there are lots of great Spring decor ideas hidden in these images.
The rustic flower pot project is really cute and looks SUPER easy. But, I also love the vintage scale, wood beads, and pretty books!
The next image is a DIY for aging shiny metal buckets. I also love the candlesticks with stark white candles, pretty white and green florals, over-sized cutting board, and, of course, that chippy old window!
This DIY “Spring” sign gives me all the Magnolia feels. I will be collecting old letters now every time that I go junking. I also love the neutral linens, white pots with textured greenery, and that chippy mantel. Swoon!
The final DIY project that I want to spotlight is the apothecary jars. Katie provides a link to download those pretty labels. The mixture of fresh flowers in the crystal clear jars just gives me all the feels!
