Simple Spring And Easter Living Room Decor
When I start decorating for Spring, the first thing I do is change out the wreath on the front door. Wreath making is one of my favorite hobbies. I started making them when I was a teenager and used to sell them at church bazaars and school fundraisers. For Spring I added a classic forsythia wreath:
My decorating style is pretty neutral with pops of color, usually blue. I tend to gravitate towards a Modern Farmhouse Style, but honestly I just go with what I like and don’t really focus on what style it is. The next thing I do for Spring is change out the throw pillows on my sofa. I may have a slight obsession with throw pillows! Can anyone relate? An inexpensive way to update throw pillows is to make your own, and you don’t have to sew! You can find inexpensive pillow covers that you can update with stencils or fabric. Take a look at these colorful and no-sew pillows that I added to my Spring Living Room.
For the large pillow on the left, I covered an existing pillow with fabric and used Fabric Adhesive to close it. I’ll share one of my favorite simple ways to make a quick pillow: tote bags! The hello pillow is a tote bag that I cut the handles off, and just sealed the top. I always use both sides of a pillow and you can see the flip side here. Keep an eye out for cute tote bags and give it a try!
Our living room is a long narrow space open to the dining room, so I try to keep the decorating style the same. Another way to bring Spring into your home is to add fresh flowers. I just shared my Spring Dining Room and wanted to continue with the pretty yellow tulips in the living room.
This little deacon’s bench is the perfect place to add tulips and a Spring pillow.
I love the gorgeous yellow color. Don’t they just scream Spring? They make me smile every time I walk in the house. Next, I added a pretty blue throw to my favorite IKEA Ektorp chair, aka “mom’s chair”. This is totally my favorite place to sit and read and browse Pinterest!
The living room is where we hang out and watch movies so I try to keep the coffee table decor simple so it doesn’t obstruct the view! An ironstone pitcher with Spring flowers does the trick.
For the television area, I added an old chicken feeder that my Dad gave me with succulents and book page Easter eggs.
A farmhouse style ladder fills in the space beside the television cabinet:
I added a Spring vignette to the antique desk having a little fun with the letter board. We live in New England and the Winter has been horrible! Hopefully Spring will be here soon.
I move things around a lot in the house. It’s a great way to refresh your home without spending a penny. The beautiful blessed sign was in my bedroom, but I knew the soft colors would be a nice focal point for above the fireplace.
The hearth was decorated with lanterns and a Spring pillow. I love to light the fireplace in the Winter, but it looks like a black pit when it’s not in use, so I added a basket of flowers.
Well, there you have it! I hope you enjoyed my Spring Living Room and are inspired by some of the ideas. I am the last stop on the Styled For Spring home tours. But if you missed any of the homes, you can start at the beginning with Wife In Progress.
