We had a few “warm” days here and by warm I mean the upper 40s. Whenever we get a warm spell in the middle of winter it means one thing is sure to happen. Spring fever hits and I start brainstorming on spring decorating ideas. I looked through former projects for inspiration and pulled together a few of my favorites.
Spring wouldn’t be spring without tulips. I become a little obsessed with these beauties this time of year. Wouldn’t you love to visit Holland and stroll through the tulips fields? I’d pluck them up and make a pretty tulip arrangement and fill every room in the house with them!
Here’s my dining room during the spring of 2015. The walls are Steam White by Valspar which casts a slight blue hue. The blue and white tablecloth is a vintage find. This spring dining room is now my sitting room and you’ll see an update to it tomorrow during the cozy living series.
Here’s the same dining room decorated for spring in 2016. I brought a little of the outdoors inside.
By spring of 2017, the dining room was turned into a sitting room. I added a second bird poster to the wall for my spring home tour that year.
Now my dining room is in the former living room. I recently shared a pink and gray table setting in the “new” dining room. If you’re a fan of pink like me, you might enjoy my recent post on decorating with pink.
A spring decorating staple in my house is flowers. Fresh or faux, I like a mix of both. Pink is always a favorite simply because I adore pink flowers. A white ironstone pitcher gets filled with tulips and carnations.
Roses in shades of pink adorn my Easter mantel from a few years ago. Wait until after Valentine’s Day to purchase roses and you’ll enjoy lower prices on them!
A couple years ago I made a spring floral chandelier. This was a super easy project!
It’s fun to make your own spring bulb arrangement, too. Last Saturday I shared a round-up of spring bulb gardens.
Yellow is also pretty for spring and I love to use this sunny color in my farmhouse kitchen.
Color is fun to play around with and spring is a great season for doing so. We’re all tired of gray skies and short days and are ready for fresh explosion of color. I enjoyed making this playful valance from colorful vintage hankies in my kitchen window.
My porch is usually the last space I decorate for spring – mainly because I wait for it to warm up a bit. This year I ordered a fun “wreath” for the front door. I can’t wait to reveal it soon. Last year I had a white floral wreath on the front door of my spring porch.
I think I’ll keep things simple this spring since we’ve got a few projects going on. But one thing is certain – flowers will definitely make an appearance! It’ll put me in the mood for planning the outdoor gardens.
Stop by tomorrow for the February installment of our Cozy Living Series!!
