  • spring decorating ideas for home

    In full disclosure, some of our spring home tour includes new photographs, but some includes existing photos because let’s be honest…sometimes not much changes at all! I wanted to invite you over to our home, decorated with glimpses of spring. I love that spring feels like a new beginning and want that to reflect in our home. Even if little changes, a few updates can make it feel fresh once again and wash away the winter blues.

    Last year, our landscapers took out the majority of our lilac bushes, which left little to bloom this year. Then, as I was pulling into our driveway the other day, I noticed a branch was down. I immediately rescued it and placed it into the brass bucket in our entryway filled with water and swapped out the subtle peach pillow for an ivory one. It’s what I call making lemonade, because it’s in my view while in the living room, but the first thing you see when you enter our home.

    Our living room is filled with garden roses and month old thistles {learn how to make the arrangement here} and my shamrock from St. Patricks Day. The girls love watching it go to sleep and wake in the morning. I have yet to commit to pillow covers for the living room for spring, but feel guilty purchasing new since I have an abundance in our linen cabinet. Speaking of cabinets, I stocked our bar cabinet in anticipation of our friends visiting this weekend! Cheers!

    Want not need not…this basket has been a staple on our coffee table for over 5 years. While it’s still available, I can’t see replacing something that’s perfectly functional.

    I’ve decided to postpone kitchen renovations until fall so that I can enjoy spring and summer focused on my family, so absolutely nothing has changed there.

    The breakfast room, however, is really coming together! We added Bessie, which is a giclee print I’ve been seeking since I saw it in a casual dining room in a magazine a few years ago, my sweet Meyer lemon tree, and a pretty little bar cart. Next week, we’ll place the rug and the contractor will finish the shadow box detailing on the walls so that I can paint the room in a rich cream.

    Yet another disclosure: I snapped the remainder of these photos last minute with toddlers hanging onto my legs.

    To the left you can see a sliver of our kitchen – while the breakfast room is among my favorites, it’s positioning in our home is slightly awkward.

    What I love most about this room is our view in the spring – our backyard is filled with flower trees and just behind us there’s a small pond.

    The mudroom is ready for spring and I’m anxious to move the winter boots downstairs that are blended in with flip flops and sandals. Only in Missouri {and every other Midwestern state!}

    In the family room, I finally found the artwork I wanted to hang over my great grandmother’s piano and replaced my potted paper whites with lavender, which I also pressed into art for our half bath.

    I wish I could say that I’ve made progress in my office or have repainted my credenza, but it hasn’t even crossed my mind, but at least it’s organized?

    Hopefully I’ll find some time to take you upstairs next week to stop by our bedrooms, the laundry room and the girls’ bathroom. If you see something you love, you can shop accessible items from our home here. How do you decorate for spring?
