Spring in the Living Room: Simple Decorating
Decorate for Spring in the Living Room! Simple ways to add some seasonal spring cheer to your home.
Hello friends! This week I’ve joined 37 blogger friends as we come together to share our homes all decorated for spring! These tours are part of the Seasonal Simplicity Spring Series hosted by Krista of The Happy Housie. In case you missed my first two posts in this spring series, you can read find them here –> How to Grow Plants from Cuttings, and my Simple Spring Vignette. Be sure to visit all the spring home tours in the links at the bottom of this post.
If you’re coming over from Jennifer’s home at Town and Country Living, welcome! Today, as part of this tour, I’m sharing my living room all decorated for spring…or early spring…or wishing it was spring. At any rate, it’s spring inside!
Decorating for Spring in Stages
I decided to decorate my home for spring in stages this year. This is my early spring decorating with colours that are a little more rich than you might think of for spring. I was really drawn to these dark, yet vibrant colours, because the truth of the matter is, we still have about 2 feet of snow outside. And I just wasn’t in the mood to pull out all the bright pastel colours.
From Winter to Spring
I also wanted spring decor that could easily transition from winter to spring…so still bright and cheery, but not full on spring, know what I mean? I think I’ll really spring things up when I bring out my Easter decorations, but that won’t be for a couple more weeks.
The inspiration for my spring living room came from these vibrant floral pillows that I found at Chapters. I was drawn to the bright pattern and velvet fabric…I just knew they would look perfect on our velvet couches.
All the throw pillows!
And because I can’t stop at two pillows, I added more. I found the 2 green floral pillows and 2 velvet rose coloured pillows at H&M, in their home section. Who knew H&M had a home section?! They had so many beautiful pieces that were very reasonably priced. It took everything in me not to buy all. the. pillows.
Gorgeous. I love pairing patterns with patterns and more patterns. I think as long as the colours compliment each other, it works.
I also added a couple new throws to compliment everything…but also because every couch needs throw blankets!
Put a plant on it!
Then I finished off my decorating with some plant life. It’s been years since I had live plants in my home. Can you believe that?! Years. That’s actually ridiculous. I used to have a house full of plants, but then I had babies, then toddlers and puppies, and I got rid of them all…not the kids or puppy, the plants! 😉 But now my babies are all grown up enough to leave them alone so I’ve slowly started to bring in some plants, and I love it! Nothing fancy yet, just a few air plants, succulents and cacti. I even decorated an entire spring vignette with cacti!
Now there’s nothing left to do but sit back on my cozy pillow laden couches and sip tea until actual spring arrives. I can’t wait.
Thank you so much for touring my living room! I hope you feel inspired to add some touches of spring to your own living space.
