10 Ways to Bring Spring into Your Home {even if it’s snowing outside}

How to bring spring into your home – simple decorating tips and tricks to transition your home from winter.

beautiful spring decorating ideas for your home

I’m always anxious for spring, even when the weather is a little confused. If there’s a 70 degree day in January, you’re likely to find me in flip flops, soaking up a little sun with a smile. If not, you’re probably going to find me indoors living in bliss pretending that its’ 70 degrees and sunny outside.

No matter the weather, today I’m sharing 10 ways to bring spring in your home so that you can do the same. I’m excited to be among great company and amazing talent today sharing our homes with you in collaboration with Country Living magazine.

Spring decorating always makes a home feel fresh. It fills the void that is left after Christmas, softens your home and makes it feel light and airy, like a spring breeze.

10 ways to bring spring into your home:

My first step to spring decorating is to declutter. There’s nothing that makes your home feel lighter than eliminating clutter, unwanted toys, clothes and decor. It’s the perfect way to spend a chilly day {because I know you won’t want to do it when it’s gorgeous outside}, but it’s always worth it. Decluttering allows you to focus your eye on the decor you have. You can get my decluttering tips here.

I find so much beauty in organization. It doesn’t have to be all plastic and paper – I like to use baskets, peg rails, hooks and metal labels, too. {above: garage organization, below: kid’s closet organization}

Spring is my favorite time of the year to introduce color – soft blue hues, pastel pinks and hints of lavender can all be found in our home this year.

Just as flowers bloom outdoors, I bring some in as well. Fresh flowers bring a room to life, so add some plants and/or fresh cut blooms throughout your home. {Below vase Home Goods}

Greet guests and passerbys with a beautiful fresh or dried wreath. Most fresh wreaths dry beautifully if in a covered location.

One of my favorite ways to transition our home through the seasons is by changing our pillow covers and throws. I added this sweet little bunny pillow cover in Adalyn’s room for an instant spring fix!

I store out-of-season covers and throws in our linen cabinet. Her desk is actually a console table from Home Goods that we cut the legs down to accommodate her.

Through the year, I update little accents throughout our home, especially in our bookcases. I still haven’t decided exactly how I want to decorate our bookcases for spring, sooooo, I fast forward to summer, but they’re light and beautiful to me, so that’s all that matters.

Easy ideas to add charm to your home

Another easy spring refresh idea is adding your favorite spring scents to powder rooms. After all, who doesn’t let the smell of spring? Lavender, peonies, roses, oh my! I also added rose infused oil {from Home Goods} to our powder room to rid my cuticles any memories of winter.

I also like to replace hand towels. For the powder room I’m using these pretty striped lightweight Turkish towels for spring {also from Home Goods}.

As you know, I love olive trees, so I added a third to my office. I just love their two-toned silverly leaves and a little patina on the pot never hurts either!

Turn the corner into our family room where you’ll see a white campanula, a new painting and the bleached grape vine I purchased on my last trip to Napa.

Even though I just refreshed, I plan to do a pillow cover change again to work with the painting.

Our family room is a blend of old and new, with family heirlooms, a trunk that I don’t love, but love the storage it provides. It’s feeling better every day!

Just outside the family room is our screened in porch where we frequently enjoy spring dinners. I’m still loving this faux olive tree from a few years ago.

  1. THe house looks perfect! Im inspired to return from spring break and getting started.

  2. It looks so inviting and ready for Spring! I’d love to get my hands on a set of those mudroom hooks, do you remember where you found them?

  3. Julie, it’s all so beautiful. I don’t think I can say I love one room over the other. Always enjoy your soft, simple touches and this is no exception xx

  4. Julie this tour was gorgeous, I loved taking in every detail and thought you put into your spaces… And you are a girl after my own heart with your organization! Everything is so lovely and leaves me inspired every visit I make – xo!

  5. Julie, I’m completely in love with two spaces the most– your mushroom (the simplicity makes me really notice the quality of everything present), and adalyn’s room. So smart to cut those legs down to make it perfect for her! And the light– you are right! It totally feels warm and cozy. So funny about your basement comment haha! Thank you for joining the hop and thank you for taking the time to comment on everyone’s blog. I know that takes a lot of time but it was so appreciated.

  6. Beautiful home, Julie. I’m swooning over your brick floor! I agree with you about de-cluttering. It’s one of the best ways to freshen up your home no matter what the season. Thanks for the gorgeous tour!

  7. hey julie! i love your horizontal paneling in this room. can you tell me more about how you did this? doe sit snap together? it seems more classic than ship lap but with a similar effect

  8. I love the blush pink curtains in your daughters room! Where are they from?

  9. Julie your home is so warm and soft feeling. I love your subtle decor, it’s all so pretty!

  10. Julie – This is soooo beautiful! I love all of your ideas. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Your daughter’s room is beautiful! Where did you find the rabbit pillow, or is the fabric available? It’s perfect fro spring.

  12. So ready for full-time spring! This back and forth weather in MO is dragging me down. Where did you get the brass hooks in your mudroom? I’ve been looking for something similar.

  13. The snow has liquefied, and our home is encompassed by an exquisite garden of cocoa grass and exposed branches. Spring is here, however it appears that winter is as yet attempting to take the show. I end up searching for green buds and delicate breezes that are not yet prepared to arrive.

  14. Your home is so gorgeous, Julie! I’m in love with all your spring touches and everything you do.
    Hugs, Jamie

  15. Where do you find Eucalyptus with seeds, real or fake? Your house is lovely!

  16. Your home is so beautiful!

  17. I’ve been looking for a brick floor for a while and I love what you have in your entry. Can you tell me what it is and/or where you purchased it?
