Simple but Elegant Spring Living Room Decorating Ideas

Hi all, and Happy First Day of Spring! I’m so excited to be sharing my first spring home tour of the season, and I’m joined by eleven of my favorite bloggers who are also sharing their very best spring decorating ideas

Spring is definitely special, don’t you think? There is just something about the blooming and re-birth of the earth that brings hope and cheer to the season, not to mention our yards. I’m a person who loves flowers any time of year, but with spring comes so many more favorites that I truly am in heaven!

So, of course, my tour includes flowers. But it also includes simplicity. And a subtle elegance.

Spring decorating ideas don’t need to be complicated, nor overly “themed.” Plants, flowers, little nests or eggs – these are all things that say “spring” and don’t break the bank. The plants can last more than a season, as can the flowers if you buy potted ones vs. cut ones.

These ranunculus are one of my all-time favorite flowers! And at least here in California, they are only available for a few short weeks so I’m practically running to get them as soon as they appear! I also added my vintage bird statue to the coffee table. Bringing anything from the garden inside is always a good way to bring some spring into the house.

I just refreshed my mantel for spring last week. You can get all the details on my three versions in this post, but this is where I ended up. I love that it says spring, but in a subtle, simple way.

The zinc bucket is a vintage find. I added some inexpensive hydrangeas that will last much longer than cut flowers. A little nest with eggs made an appearance there, too! šŸ˜‰

I have orchids all year, but I do love the pink ones at spring. This one was a gift from a friend when I broke my back a few weeks ago, and I plopped it in a vintage urn and added it to the entry way. The other urn holds dried artichokes.

Something I’ve collected for years is these marble eggs! I bring them out every spring, and I love them. It’s really fun to buy just one or two new ones each year to build on the collection. You can easily find them on Ebay or Etsy, but Williams Sonoma also makes new ones that have gorgeous colors and they are a great price, too!

This antique French urn is a new purchase and I have to say, I was so excited to bring it home that I was giddy! I had looked at it in the antique store for probably two years, but finally made an offer and when the seller accepted, I knew it was meant to come home with me!

It is so gorgeous, that literally everything looks good in it! But I really loved the look of the jasmine – and it smells amazing!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my first spring tour of the season, and that I’ve given you some ideas that you can use in your own home. With some flowers and a few nods to spring, you can create an elegant but simple look that doesn’t break the bank, and that can last all season long!
