Adding Touches of Spring Decor

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. Hearing the birds sing and seeing the trees and flowers bloom is so refreshing. Here in Tennessee we often experience long winters, and I am always thankful when this time of year rolls around. It gets me excited about adding some color and fresh touches around the house.

I never go overboard when it’s time to change decorations with the seasons. I feel that adding spring touches doesn’t have to be elaborate. I like to add things that are inexpensive, not too over the top, but will add just the right amount of liveliness.

Here are few examples of how I added these touches around our home.

Front Door Wreaths

Adding a front door wreath is always a great place to start. This is something most people do anyway at the change of the season, so you may have an old one you can use.

If not, you can either buy one or DIY your own. This year I chose to DIY my own wreath. I looked at all my usual go to places and still didn’t have any luck. Surprisingly, this was a very simple DIY that if I can do, anyone can!

To DIY my own, I used a twig wreath. 6-8 inches will work perfectly if you have a double door like mine. If not, you may want to go a little larger.

I then added in a few budded flower stems with some greenery. I purchased the longer stems and cut them down a little shorter. Then I just weaved the stem wire inside of the wreath to the placement I wanted. This was super quick and pretty affordable.

When choosing a spring wreath, I like to have a little color and lots of greenery. For me, I like to keep it more natural looking.

Shelving Accents

We have open shelving in the kitchen which allows me to add in some colorful accents. While keeping with the neutral color palette of our home and kitchen, I didn’t go too bright. I used some bluish small pottery throughout with a few budded blue stems.


Pillows

Pillows are another place to change it up a little for the season. As you will see, I added some different pillows throughout the house to give a fresh look.

I normally stick to lighter colors. Here I used some pale blues and yellows mixed with some neutral colors. Adding in a couple of linen throws is also a nice spring touch.

Faux Flowers

Faux flowers are essential to spring decorating for me. Who doesn’t associate spring with flowers, right? I normally change out all of my table arrangement vases to some natural looking flowers along with eucalyptus or some type of greenery.

This is great way to bring the outside in. This is an easy change and for sure keeps everything looking fresh.

Creating a clean, fresh spring feel throughout your home doesn’t have to be major. It is easily accomplished with adding a few touches here and there. It is a wonderful way to brighten and freshen up your home.
