With each new season I make little changes in the decor to give our home a refresh without having to completely redecorate. While I enjoy decorating, I have never been one to enjoy the process of getting out a lot of decor from storage & putting away the season before. This is one of the many reasons I transition our home with a few key pieces that offer a lot of impact.
I have been so busy updating our home & planning for our trip to Sonoma this week that I haven’t finished or photographed our Spring refresh yet this year. I wanted to share how I decorated for Spring & Easter last year. The breathtaking photographs were taken by Alea Lovely. Easter & Halloween are the only holidays that each of the girls get a little holiday decor in their rooms. I think Easter is the easiest holiday of all to decorate for.
Last year for Adalyn’s room I added her little lamb that was Chris’s when he was an infant. I had made a little happy Easter banner by printing on card stock & adhering it to ribbon that came on a gift. I loved the soft gingham print with the luxe pink card stock. It was an easy way to dress up her pin board.
A few years ago, I found these pretty little nests. They’re added throughout the house in areas like our bookcases, dressers & shadow boxes.
Fresh tulips are a Spring favorite & at just $5 a bunch, a weekly staple.
Again, I change out my artwork…it just takes a few minutes, but offers a fresh appearance.
My boxwood wreath is another key piece I use from one season to the next. During the holidays, it’s adorned with red or green ribbon & brought inside for Spring. It’s a great way to add in something organic without having to water or replenish. It also works beautifully for St. Patrick’s Day – I used it both last year & this year for our parties. Drained eggs make great filler for apothecary jars, bowls & when placed in little nooks. These are a combination of natural & dyed eggs. I look forward to sharing this year’s Spring refresh, but for now, it’s time to prep for some wine & relaxation. Still to come this week, a favorite recipe & how to learn calligraphy in 5 days!
