Now, more than ever, home is our haven and safe place. We’re being asked to distance ourselves from each other and stay home for the foreseeable future. It’s scary. It’s strange. It’s really hard. But, its a also a great time to make home a pleasant place to be. Today, I’m sharing some simple spring decorating ideas in hopes that it will help give you ideas for how to make your home look and feel like a place you want to hunker down and stay for a while! I’m sharing these ideas as part of the Seasonal Simplicity Spring Home Tour hosted by Krista from The Happy Housie. The week’s lineup can be found at the bottom of this post.
Simple spring decorating ideas
Add Plants and greenery to your space
Bringing the outdoors in always makes a space feel more alive and fresh. Having plants around (even fake ones) lifts your spirits and mental state.
I know adding these beautiful branches and succulents to my dining room table helps keep my emotional state more stable…it’s silly, but true!
I’ve been adding succulents to my open shelves too. I just plopped them into some gold cups, and they look so cute!
It is worth noting that all of my plants are fake. I am not so good with growing things or keeping plants alive. Even though they are faux plants, they still bring life and depth to our dining room and kitchen!
USe pops of spring color and special pieces
It’s really no secret that pinks, mauves, and nude neutrals have been my favorite trendy colors to decorate with lately. I’m continuing to pull a lot of pinks out for spring…especially in the kitchen.
From my cute pink pot (that always sits on our range) to a pink candle, these little pops of color add a lot of cheer and sweetness.
I traveled with Jared to Florida in February, and we stopped at the most darling little store in Fernandina Beach. I couldn’t resist grabbing this sweet little flower coffee mug. Drinking my coffee out of a cute mug never gets old, and starts my day out right. 😉
I also grabbed this gold bee spoon and darling crocheted pink washcloths. I pull them out and the gold spoon to stir my Vital Proteins into my coffee each day. It’s such a simple thing to do, but using special pieces can feel like such a treat!
Using pops of your favorite springy colors and special pieces really can make a difference in your mental attitude and outlook…and I need all the help I can get right now! 😉
Use the “Less is more” approach
While I love to pile on layers upon layers upon layers during the holidays, I like to really scale back when it comes to spring. I like to choose just a few decor pieces that I really love rather than going overboard.
This spring, I have chosen a lot of neutral pieces with natural wood tones to mix in with my greenery.
I really love this butterfly art on my mantel! It’s such a sweet neutral piece that subtly hints at spring!
Keeping it simple also helps me keep it calm…which is a must at this time.
I’ve truly never loved my Barefoot Dreams blanket more. This thing goes with me from room to room. Anywhere I go, there she goes also.
The less is more approach also works for the color palette in our living room. I’m using very few neutral and soft colors, which also helps keep the visual aesthetic calm.

Use floral and botanical prints
My last idea for spring decorating is incorporating beautiful floral art into your home.
I hung this set of Vintage Floral Decorator Paper art pieces in our bedroom last fall, and I have no plans to take them down anytime soon.
I have one hanging above my workspace, which is a pretty backdrop and makes something nice to look at while I work. 🙂
The floral art looks and feels springy.
