Looking for a spring refresh? In today’s post I’m sharing four tips for easy spring kitchen decorating ideas!
Well hello friends! I feel like I haven’t shared seasonal decor here in quite awhile, so I’m thrilled to be talking spring decorating today!
We’ve had the most erratic weather lately – one week it’s pretty warm and I’m feeling that spring is here, and the next (like now!) it’s cloudy and cold and dreary. But my solution is to ignore the weather and bring spring inside – whether it’s here on the outside or not! 😉
Do you want to add some pretty touches of spring but keep thinking it’s not worth the hassle? Well I beg to differ! Changing up your seasonal decor doesn’t need to be super fussy or complicated. In fact, all the changes I made today are super easy to do. And you know what? They completely changed the feel of the room!
Tip One: Add Plants
There’s nothing like a little greenery to make a room feel springy! I added a few plants to the kitchen and I just love the way the whole room feels fresher and more alive.
Tip Two: Lighten Things Up
For me this means the colors of your linens or towels, the candles you choose to burn or even the soap scent you use. All of these visual cues and scents really change the way you respond to a space!
The first thing I do when March rolls around is change out my kitchen towels. I always use linen tea towels, but instead of the darker colors I use in winter (or even the reds I’ve used during the holidays), I change them out for pretty neutrals, as well as cheerful soft pinks.
I also put away the pine scented candles of the winter and bring out some non-seasonal or spring scents. Right now I’m burning my favorite Chai Latte candle. And since it’s a bit lighter than something like a pumpkin, it works year round! I also use lemon scents, lavender, and coffee. All of these are especially good for this in-between season where it’s no longer winter, but not warm and summery yet either.
Tip Three: Use Seasonal Decor
For me this is a subtle thing. I don’t like to go too crazy with signs that scream spring, or “themed” decor. However, just adding a few touches with a nod to the season really set the tone for the room.
This speckled egg platter is a favorite! I love the soft colors and the fact that it says spring in a fresh way.
And I also bring out lots of eggs! I may bring out bunnies when it gets closer to Easter, but for now, the eggs symbolize spring to me.
Another favorite is to use little nests. They’re another nod to the season and I love that they symbolize nature and rebirth – all the things that spring represents!
And this vintage French egg basket is a favorite! I love the sweet shape – and it’s so practical in the kitchen, too!
Tip Four: Bring Out the Flowers
I’m sure this one is a shocker, haha! You all know how much I love flowers, and try to have them in my home year-round as much as I can. However, spring is definitely a season that just screams for some!
So whether it’s a blooming tulip plant, hydrangeas from the market, or ranunculus from the flower mart, flowers go a long way towards bringing that feeling of spring into your home!
I usually choose either flowers in all white, white and green, or in this case, white and pink. These are the colors that say “spring” to me, but choose whatever speaks to you. I guarantee you that any fresh flowers you find will be just the right touch for your spring kitchen decorating!
I hope this gave you some ideas of how to bring spring into your home. Today I started with the kitchen because that’s the place I seem to spend the most time in. But next week I’ll be completely “springifying” my home and lightening and brightening the other rooms as well!
