10 Easy Spring Decorating Ideas from Expert Decorators

If you live in an area with a true change of seasons, you know exactly how transformative spring can be. A long winter can take a toll on our yards and our homes, leaving us entirely ready to put the frozen weather behind us.

Even if you live in an area without major weather changes, each season has a particular feeling associated with it. Fall is warm toned and cozy, winter is cool toned and filled with joyous lights and celebrations, summer is fun and tropical. So what then of spring? Spring has an undeniable feeling of newness, making it the perfect time to tackle change and hit the reset button. Get ready to open those windows, dust every corner, and freshen your home with these various spring decorating ideas.

1. Add Lemons to a Topiary Jar

An easy and inexpensive way to add some bright spring decor to your kitchen or dining room is by dropping some lemons in a glass topiary jar.

This centerpiece from Yellow Brick Road features two matching floral arrangements on either side filled with white and yellow tulips. The jars have a farmhouse style with the addition of paper doilies and twine. If yellow doesn’t work with your decor, try a topiary filled with limes or oranges.

2. Welcome Spring on a Chalkboard

Do you have a chalkboard or other type of message board in your home? Switch out the message with a spring related greeting. This spring vignette from Making Home Base simply says “Hello Spring,” but there are other options too.

Stencil out any of the following messages:

  • Spring has sprung
  • Welcome spring
  • Spring has arrived
  • Happy spring
  • Spring is coming

3. Create a Silk Flower Arrangement in a Bag

Here’s a decor trick that makes it seem like you’ve just gotten back from the farmer’s market with fresh flowers. Pick a season-appropriate purse or canvas tote and fill it with silk tulips.

This vignette can either look very natural or very fake. Hang the bag at an angle like you see here so it doesn’t come across too perfect and stick to two to three colors. The navy and yellow color choice from It All Started With Paint is very on trend right now.

4. Incorporate Pastel Throw Pillows

Pastel blues (and pastels in general) are colors that are often associated with spring and Easter. These colors also work well if you have a beachy decor theme you’re looking to bring into the spring season.

House by Hoff mixed pastel blue with green and a sandy neutral throughout her living room and rest of her home for her spring home tour.

5. Hang a Spring Wreath on a Window

There are various wreath DIY’s you can tackle for spring. But once you’ve picked the wreath you want to create, don’t limit yourself on where you will hang it.

Four Generations One Roof decided to hang their spring wreath on the window of their mudroom. Other options include:

  • Above a mantel
  • As part of a wall art collage
  • On any door in your home
  • In a vignette on a shelf

6. Use Bottles and Fresh Flowers for a Spring-Inspired Centerpiece

There are a lot of centerpieces on the market that look similar to this one. The basic concept is a simple wood surround filled with bottles and fresh flowers.

Instead of buying one like Honey Were Home, clean out some old soda bottles and make your own. Group the bottles in odd numbers and scatter spring florals in one or two colors.

7. Arrange the China Cabinet With White and Turquoise

It’s a design challenge to know how to beautifully display items in a china cabinet. For many of us, it’s tempting to keep all our glassware and dishes on display throughout the year.  However, careful editing can make a major difference from season to season.

We love how Just a Girl and Her Blog stuck to only china in the turquoise and white color family for her spring home reveal.

8. Stay on Trend with Soft Pink Accents

One of the hottest colors this season is rose gold or soft pink. Switch out some of your decor this spring with pieces of copper and pink. Balance the femininity with shades of mossy green.

So Much Better With Age created a french inspired spring retreat by adding soft pink throw pillows and florals. For a more vintage feel, add dried flowers alongside some fresh ones.

9. Tackle a Whimsical Easter Bunny DIY Using Mason Jars

With the onset of spring comes Easter. Decorating for Easter is especially fun if you have little ones around. The whimsy of the Easter bunny and the satisfaction of some candy goes a long way with kids.

This DIY from Happiness is Homemade has something for everyone. The mason jars play into a farmhouse style, and the fun colors and candy are suitable for kids of all ages.

10. Liven Up the Dining Room with a Moss Ball Centerpiece

A sophisticated way to bring spring into a more modern space is through the use of moss balls. Life on Virginia Street shares their spring home tour with a ton of traditional yet modern spaces.

Unlike the other spring decorating ideas, their dining room welcomes the season in a more subdued way. The large wooden centerpiece is filled with moss that you can find at any craft store. Bowls of moss are also scattered throughout other parts of their home to make the entire look cohesive.
