Farmhouse Kitchen Dressed for Spring

Are you lovin’ the longer days of spring as much as I am? It’s incredible how a few more hours of daylight can put a pep in your step. I’m pretty sure I have seasonal disorder syndrome so when the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, I’m a happy camper. It’s even better when everything starts turning green and the magnolia trees and forsythia bushes are in bloom. I brought a little of that spring time freshness into my farmhouse kitchen with a few yellow accents.

Farmhouse Kitchen Decorated for Spring

My farmhouse kitchen seems so much happier when sunlight is streaming in for hours on end. It makes me smile when I come down in the morning  to brew a pot of coffee.

 

Pitcher of Yellow Gerbera Daisies

I found a beautiful bouquet of  yellow gerbera daisies at the grocery store to add a little spring sunshine to my kitchen. Lately I’ve been choosing a color as my decorating focus.  I used a bit of coral and aqua to decorate a few rooms for spring. Today I chose yellow and blue.

 

Blue Mason Jars in Farmhouse Kitchen

It’s easier to decorate for the seasons when you choose a color scheme. It helps you stay focused, and often you’ll find small things you already have that fit in your color scheme, like these blue Ball mason jars

 

Aqua Bowl Full of Lemons

Or an aqua colored bowl that you can fill with pretty yellow lemons.

 

Spring Decorating in Farmhouse Kitchen

Farmhouse Kitchen

I swapped my wooden box that holds my cook books for a green wire basket.

I keep my favorite cookbooks out where they can inspire me.

 

Easy Spring Decorating. Pansies in a White Wood Box

In the window above the kitchen sink, I added a white box of yellow and purple pansies.

 

Lemon and Olive Leaf Candle

And on the counter below, my new lemon and olive leaf candle. I thought this was such a pretty jar for a candle. When it’s done burning, I’m going to refill it with homemade scented candle wax.  Jar candles are pretty easy to make.

 

Yellow Gerbera Daises in Polka Dot Pitcher

When decorating, I try to let one thing be my inspiration. For my spring farmhouse kitchen, that inspiration started with the lemon kitchen towels. The light blue polka dot pitcher fit right in, along with the yellow Gerbera daisies. I love these cheery flowers in all colors.

 

Spring Decorating in a Farmhouse Kitchen

Are you enjoying the longer spring days? I need to get out in the yard and get a jump start on gardening. Our daffodils and scilia are in bloom and I’d like to clean up the flower beds a bit before our Virginia Bluebells start blooming.

How soon do you start gardening?
