Sharing my simple spring living room decor to update our cozy modern living room for the season without adding clutter.
As the weather starts to warm, I’m getting so excited for spring. Last year I started seeds inside for the first time and this year, I know the rewards from that so have started even more. There’s something about growing plants for the summer in the dead of winter and early spring that makes the anticipation even more exciting.
So today I’m feeling more than ready to share my spring living room decor with you. Usually, when I join up with my blogging friends for seasonal decor – I feel like it’s wayyy early and I’m not even thinking about seasonal decor. But this year? Thanks to the plants… I’m ready ;)
So today I’m joining up with some of my amazing blogging friends to share my spring living room decor with you as part of the Seasonal Simplicity spring series. You can see all of the living rooms in the tour down at the bottom of this post, there is some gorgeous gorgeous spaces so make sure to hop around and check them out!
Alright, let’s chat spring decor! If you’ve been following Lemon Thistle for any amount of time, you’ve probably heard me talk about seasonal decorating without clutter. This is something I feel so strongly about with a busy home where 6 of us use the surfaces for books, games, notebooks and who knows what else on a daily basis.
While I love the touches of spring decor throughout my home and living room… I want to be able to use my living room fully without worrying about my kids or puppy knocking over glass bunnies.
I wrote a full blog post about decorating seasonally without clutter if you’re interested, but the few things I did in here definitely follow those steps.
I swapped out some of my pillows and throws- switching anything furry or heavy for lighter weight throws and added some green pillows in. I love this sage green throw for spring!
I also brought in some seasonal blooms and foliage. The blooms on the table are just grocery store tulips (I used chicken wire in the vase to arrange them- you can see more about that here!) and the mantel is dried eucalyptus. The bunny tail grasses are dried from my garden last year– aren’t they adorable in this hand vase?
Having a couple spaces for me to change things up keeps the clutter from taking over. I always swap a few things on my mantel and this spring I decided to add a bowl of eggs to my coffee table as well.
These are just dollar store eggs that I loved the size of. We painted them with this concrete look eggs tutorial and they turned out so lovely! The low bowl is unlikely to get knocked over from my kids and the dollar store eggs aren’t precious so I feel good about having these out!
That’s really all I’ve done in here for seasonal decorating! Having a really great baseline of a space I love the look of and feels calming makes it easy for me to add in a few seasonal touches and still have an enjoyable space.Today some of my friends are sharing their Spring home decor ideas for their Living Room.
