Spring is almost here! The time for chirping birds... beautiful flowers... warmer weather... and.. of course...
A New Spring Look!!
To celebrate the end of this cold winter.... we are welcoming Spring with some fresh decorating ideas to help brighten up your home! From pastel color palettes and floral accents to fresh patterns and a few new farmhouse decor accent pieces you can easily add that fresh Spring feel to your home!
You can go all out...or just change out a few decor items for a more subtle change.
Sometimes all you need is a touch of the outdoors and a Pop of color to make all the difference. The simplest farmhouse vase is an old mason jar! Paint it a pastel color like mint, pink, yellow or blue. or leave it... it's your choice! Then pick a bunch of your favorite flowers and viola!!
Fun Tip: Put a few drops of food coloring in the water, then cut the stems and insert some white carnations or any other white flowers of your choice. The flowers will absorb the colored water and will turn color! Super simple & easy!!!
Allergic to flowers? No worries.... in place of real flowers fill your mason jar with silk flowers, potpourri.... or even jellybeans!...yes.... jellybeans! Super colorful and Easter-ish. But definitely keep that jar up high, away from the little fingers of the kiddos. Nothing spells disaster like a kid on a sugar high!
Another Tip... Mason jars make excellent Candle holders!!
Silk orchids are always a nice touch to brighten up your mantle! And when paired with the perfect metal wall decor it, adds a delicate contrast.
Bring the Outdoors In.
Switching out your table centerpieces is an easy way to make a subtle change for the season. For Spring..try the Organic look. A wooden box is a great for planting some grasses or low growing flowers, or use it in your kitchen to keep your favorite herbs handy for cooking! A galvanized metal bucket for use as a vase or flowerpot adds a definite farmhouse feel!
Fun with Fabrics.
Give a neutral room a fresh update with a mix of floral patterned fabrics. Spring is the perfect time to replace those old curtains and drapes. Try a new pattern, or... if you aren't a fan of patterned fabrics, simply update to a more Spring-y color!
This season, there are some amazing floral prints hitting he shelves that are a must have for the perfect Spring look! Go bold or simple...it's your choice! And don't be afraid to mix and match patterns... as long as use colors within the same palette you'll nail it!

To go along with your florals.... bring more of the outside in with leaf prints. Create an accent wall with a leaf print wallpaper if you are going all in on this makeover... or add a subtle leaf pattern to your gallery wall with a stencil. To complete the look, your accessories should either be among the same color palette... or find some awesome throw pillows with a leaf print fabric. Fern prints are always a hit!! But be careful not to overdo it... it's easy to go from chic to tacky... with just one printed fabric too many!
Time for a Color-lift?Say goodbye to dark, deep tones... Let the Sunshine in with soft pastel shades.. or even neutral shades of white! Whether it's just one room or many, freshening up your walls is sure to bring some of Springtime indoors!
✔ Mint green is a great choice... it's making a comeback and is a very calm, modern tone. It pairs beautifully with natural wood accents as well as metals!
✔ And don’t overlook lavender. Lavender is a classy, neutral color that works beautifully with a wide array of other colors. Great for bedrooms! Pair it with other pastels or neutrals like gray, ivory, and white for a soft look.
A few GREAT wall accent ideas to go with your Fresh, Spring color palette...
