Simple and easy spring decorating ideas to create a comfortable and family-friendly home with french country charm.
Inevitably during these long winter months I start to get the itch to clean, organize, declutter, and add simple spring touches throughout my home. It feels like a breath of fresh air to add life to our spaces through wreaths, flowers, pillows, and freshly laundered linens.
One of the things that brings me joy is creating a functional and comfortable home for my family. With 4 little under the age of 7, everything we own is washable, comfortable, and not too fussy. I tend to go on a washing spree during this time of the year where I wash all of the slipcovers, cushions, pillows, blankets, curtains and anything else I can find.
I love the feel of freshness that spring brings.
I bought these pretty faux paperwhites on clearance after Christmas and just kept them out. I thought the bulbs would be perfect for spring and even summer. I have a friend that uses them year around and I always love them in her home. I have wanted to re-pot these ever since I bought them, but just haven’t found the right pots yet.
I stole the vintage grain sack pillows from my boys’ room and added these sweet block printed pillows I found at Homegoods.
I love to use vintage books in all of the rooms in our home. They are so perfect year around.
I think I may have found the most beautiful tulips in the world. I believe they are called double tulips- they have many layers and are so ruffly and pretty! I am in love. I found them at Trader Joe’s and I wish they would last for much longer than they will. I bought some of these last year too but in pink shades and they are just so happy and cheerful.
Don’t let these windows fool you- while I was pretending it was spring outside, there were lots of flurrying snowflakes falling from the sky. Call me crazy, but truth be told, I absolutely love the snow and I am happy to have spring indoors and winter outdoors.
This is the season for Meyer lemons too! These aren’t nearly as good as my grandma’s, but I was excited to see them in the store. A perfect spring snack- fresh blueberry bread and lemon water. It tastes even better on vintage dishes.
This little rack is one of my favorite things in our kitchen. I love having some of my antique copper hanging from it. To see my tips for cleaning and polishing copper, you can read my post HERE. I share 5 different techniques and I would bet you have most of the supplies around your home!
