Spring Decorating Ideas Digest

| | | |

A decorating digest filled with easy spring decorating ideas to freshen up your home for this much anticipated season of the year.

When it came to seasonal decorating, I used to think of spring as a neutral season. It was supposed to be the time of year when your house returned to its normal state. There were no seasonal touches and it stayed that way until the next holiday rolled around.

Boy – what a mistake that was.

You don’t want to miss this year’s Spring Decor Shopping Guide! Find all of my favorites HERE.

Spring on the front door

Spring inspiration starts at the front door. I always diy a new spring wreath every season!

You can’t go wrong with classic planters, filled with ferns, flanking a front door. It’s a springtime look that will never go out of style.

Add a pop of color and more texture to your porch by adding additional pots filled with your favorite colorful flowers to the display.  

Add throw pillows to front porch chairs and layer a coordinating area rug under your door mat to keep things looking cohesive. 

Load up on inexpensive faux tulips from a discount store, then fill a basket until it looks like it’s overflowing with fresh flowers.  

Yellow is such a happy color! I highly recommend sprinkling it liberally around the outdoors to welcome guests.

Spring In the entryway

Something as simple as a colorful piece of artwork and a potted plant may be all that you need to spruce up your entryway.

If you happen to have a chair or bench in your entryway, load it up with colorful spring-like pillows.

Don’t overlook flowering trees this time of year! Their gorgeous branches make a fabulous display when arranged in a glass vase or other type of container.

This time of year, an entryway table is the perfect spot to add diy moss bowl. You’re only limited by your imagination when it comes to this fun craft!

Spring decor in the living room

One of the best things about the arrival of spring is that the angle of the sun finally changes. Warmth and sunshine begins to pour through the windows and doors in my living room once again!


My fireplace is a focal point in my living room, so it always gets dressed for spring. 

Try a diy moss wreath hung above a fireplace instead of the usual piece of art.

I love to mix some of my favorite spring decor pieces together on my mantel – bunnies, greenery, topiaries and candles.

Using tea towels to make no-sew throw pillows is an easy and affordable way to add fun textiles to the room.

Incorporating a bird’s nest into a grouping with a plant makes a pretty vignette for a coffee table.

It still can get chilly in the evening, so keep spring-colored throws handy to ward off the chill. 

Sprinkle a fresh blue color throughout your room. Use it on curtains, pillows, lanterns, accessories and even pieces of artwork.

Spring decor in the dining room

You may not think about decorating your dining room for spring, other than to put a pretty centerpiece on the table, but don’t overlook other areas of the room too!


A pretty bouquet of pinks and pastel shades of flowers is very eye-catching on a sideboard.

A plate rack, china cabinet or hutch is a fun place to display spring decor or plates in spring colors. 

Open shelves above a sideboard are a great place for adding spring touches to everyday dishware.

Let’s not forget that Easter is in the spring. You may not be ready for a full blown Easter tablescape, so how about a pretty centerpiece with just a nod toward the holiday.

Something as simple as a moss bowl makes a very pretty spring centerpiece when  flanked with glass candle-filled hurricanes.

Hopefully, you found a lot of design ideas and inspiration here for your own spring decorating!


FAQ’s about spring decorating

It’s totally a matter of personal preference, but in general, you can consider about four weeks before Easter a good time to add spring decorations.

To make your house cozy for spring, use rich colors on pillows and throws. Add texture with plants, baskets and textiles. Candlelight makes any space cozy, no matter the time of year.

The easiest answer of course, is to reuse what you already own. Display it in a different way and it will look like you purchased something brand new!

  1. Great tips Suzy! I love the vignettes you have in the dining room! I really like lanterns and have several in m,y home. Since my style is coastal, it just makes sense to have lanterns! I like mixing different styles and textures with the lanterns. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for the spring ideas. I am in a warm climate for another month so spring is here. The spring flowers are blooming and it s nice to get your inspiration so when I get home, I can dig in.

  3. Beautiful arrangements! I’m so ready for Spring. Where did you get the box you have your coffee and cocoa stored?

    1. Hi Jeanine. If you’ll click on the image of the box below the image of my coffee bar (directly below where it says “Get The Look”), it will take you directly to one you can purchase that is similar to mine. 😀

  4. I like the tray with your birdhouse and terrarium. The colors look so much like a spring day! I am so ready for warm springtime!

  5. Great ideas for Spring! I love the pops of color that your arrangements bring.

  6. You are always an inspiration. I make at least a few seasonal changes every month in my house (I work full time and am getting “older”) but that is my treat to myself, to make a comfortable pretty place to occasionally relax! Thank you for the extra push I sometimes need to make the time.

  7. Great ideas Suzy. Thank you for posting!

    Nice ideas!!! =)

  9. Hi Suzy, I love the Greenhouse you used on your breakfront, can you tell me where to buy one?
    Thanks, Celeste

    1. Hi Celeste. I don’t see what you’re asking about in any of the images in this blog post. Can you tell me more specifically what you’re asking about?

      1. Hi Suzy, I think it was in February 2017. It was in the dinning room on the break front under your shelves

        1. Hi Suzy , you used it in the den behind your sofa as well…..


        2. Ok, now I know what you’re asking about! It came from At Home a while back, but I still see them in the store.

          1. Thank you for your time! You have opened my decorating mind and now I think out of the box!


  10. I live in Scotland and generally we don’t decorate seasonally here but as a very regular visitor to the states I love the tradition of seasonal decorations! I’m all in changing up every excuse I have. Saves me from getting the paint can every 5 minutes?! Guess I just get bored easily x

    1. How lovely to have a visitor all the way from Scotland! I would love to visit your part of the world one day.

  11. So many pretty ideas! Would love the source for the blue and white urns on your mantel, I tried to figure it out from the various links before I asked, but couldn’t find it, thanks!

    Hi Suzy!
    I was looking at your post this week regarding how to style shelves. I went to the post where you showed the before and after of your home office. You mentioned you wish you knew where your mail sorter behind your desk came from. I typed in some of the road names. The sorter is from Mumbai, India. Nariman Point is there and SantaCruz is a suburb of Mumbai. The story of how the sorter made it here would be interesting!
