Spring Living Room: A Simple and Easy Spring Refresh

Spring is such a fun season to decorate for. I love that with just some simple touches, it’s so easy to create a pretty space. This week I’m sharing some easy ideas for creating spring in the living room. I added some florals, fresh plants, and a few seasonal changes to both the living and dining rooms, and they are definitely feeling ready for spring! 

We’re just seeing the first signs of spring here in Southern California, and it is making me so happy. There’s nothing like some buds on the trees and my roses starting to sprout some leaves to bring a smile to my face. Though it’s still raining, I keep telling myself that it will bring even more green and blooms in a few weeks and that’s reason to celebrate. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I’m joining my friend Lory of Designthusiasm for a spring tour with some talented friends who are all sharing some spring inspiration with you. 

Taking my cues from nature, I’ve created some pretty spring-inspired spaces…

Adding flowers and plants is one of my favorite ways to bring in spring. I switched up the mantel a bit from the look it had a couple of weeks ago, adding some hydrangeas in a glass vase and a small plant to create a little vignette. It creates a simple nod to spring without going overboard.

Plants are something I love to add year-round, but they’re especially appropriate come springtime. This little ivy sits on the coffee table along with a cloche over a bird’s nest – one of my other favorite things to bring out come spring.

Little nests or eggs are such a sweet way to add a bit of spring anywhere you put them! And a cloche makes anything feel special.

Birds, too, represent spring and I tend to bring some out each year. These were hiding in the builtins in the family room and I decided to bring them into the living room. I love how they look on the coffee table and they’re so cute featured here! When doing seasonal decorating, think of ways to move around decor you already have that will feel fresh.

This little blooming plant is such a charmer! It’s seriously my favorite thing I’ve added this season. I love the color – and it’s supposedly low-maintenance (perfect for this plant-killer!)

Tulips are one thing that always say spring to me, so when I saw white ones I just had to have them! I love to buy blooming plants in the spring rather than just cut flowers – they last a lot longer.

Some pink roses and green branches decorate the buffet. I love cutting branches from the yard to use in my decorating. Not only is it free, but it’s the perfect seasonal touch. And again, the green really speaks of spring and new life ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Really beautiful, itโ€™s just beautiful and truly a reflection of you. What a pretty Spring home tour. I love what youโ€™ve done with the space and how youโ€™ve decorated for Spring. I think I need a few pastel colours in my living room to make it feel more Spring and a few plants or fresh flowers.

    1. Aww what a lovely comment Kate! Thank you for making my day!!

    As much as I love to garden, I like to add easy to keep plants in the house too.

    By the way, is that a new dining table???
    If so, how did I miss that post?

    Keep safe,

    1. haha yes! It is a new dining table Rachelle – good eye!! I have yet to do a whole post but it is coming!

      Thanks so much for your kind words, and stay safe too!


  5. Sheila, your blooms and plants are just beautiful!!!! And the planter of white tulips is sublime!!! I just may try my hand at putting tulips in my big gray urn. So lovely!!!!

    1. Aww thank you Yvonne! You know how a French urn makes anything look good ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Happy Spring to you!


  6. Love all of the pretty spring details that you’ve used Sheila!

  7. So many beautiful little details in all of your vignettes!! I think my very favorite is the nest under cloche, but all of it so lovely!! Also loving the natural elements. Just stunning!

    1. Aww thanks so much Lory – so appreciate that my friend!


  8. So excited for these spring posts! You gave me several ideas already! What are the low maintenance flowers you showed us? Love it and I’m not the best with flowers so would like to try growing those. Looking at the pretty pictures is a great distraction from you know what. Looking forward to your front porch post. I have the hardest time with that as nothing is growing in my area this time of year, but kind of way past time to put the Christmas tree away!

    1. What a lovely comment – thanks so much Gina! The plant is a type of heather called “Darley Dale” – it says “easy maintenance heathers” on the label so let’s hope so!!

      thanks for stopping by!
