Are you ready for some spring home decor inspiration? You don’t want to miss this spring home tour featuring 25 amazing homes. Lots of inspiration for all home decor styles!
Good morning, friends! Are you ready for spring? I’m so ready for it to get here, but by the time you’re reading this, I’ll probably be under a foot of new snow. We are gearing up for another snow storm, and school has already been canceled for my kiddos for the day. The upside is that since I can’t go out, I’ll get to stay in and start checking out a spring home tour or two (or five) for the 24 other bloggers that I’m teaming up with this week. There is so much spring home decor inspiration, and I just can’t wait to look at them.
If you’re coming from Laura’s home at Inspiration for Moms, isn’t it gorgeous? She has a very casual, but sophisticated style that I am just in love with. There are so many amazing homes on the tour, and I’m honored that you’ve stopped by. Make sure you click on the links at the end for more incredible spring decor ideas.
If you’re new here, I’m Robin. My husband, 2 boys, and I moved to western Massachusetts 3 years ago after living overseas for several years. We purchased a 90-year-old Tudor style home with lots of character and have slowly been making it our own.
Today, I thought I’d take you through our living room and kitchen since that is where I do most of my seasonal decorating.
But first, let’s take a look at our newly painted front door. Towards the end of last summer, this door went through several color transformations. It was previously painted a dark brown, and I wanted to bring a little color to the front of our house. The exterior paint color of the house is an odd creamy yellow shade that has warm undertones. I really liked the idea of painting the door navy but had the hardest time finding something that was not too dark and coordinated with the house color. I think I tried at least 3 different blue shades before I found the right one.
Living Room Spring Home Tour
Our living room is the first room you see as you come in our front door, so it’s one of my favorite rooms to decorate seasonally. It has a very traditional design but with lots of “pops” of color and pattern. I like to keep my seasonal decor fairly simple by mostly changing out pillows and adding a few accents here and there. I find that if I plan to do too much, I dread doing it, and the seasonal decorations never make it out.
I switched out our throw pillow covers for these blush and black and white covers. I’m a big fan of down pillow inserts because they make it so much less expensive to change out the pillows, and it doesn’t take much space to store the covers you aren’t using.
The Easter eggs (these look very similar) are something I picked up on a trip to Singapore when we were living overseas. They were in an import shop, and I have no idea where they were from originally, but their color is just gorgeous.
Do you have a favorite thrifting find? This pair of quatrefoil chairs is my all-time best find. I picked them up on Craigslist for $20 each!!! The seller said that they had been listed for quite a long time and no one was interested in them. They were originally a dark brown stain, and the bottom of the chair had a heavy skirt around it. The fabric isn’t in the best condition, so I plan to reupholster them eventually. I do like the pink though, and while these chairs are in here all year round, they’re perfect for spring.
Even while there are no signs of green leaves outside yet, these sprouting tree branches have me hopeful that we’ll start seeing some soon.
Kitchen Spring Home Tour
Let’s move on over to our kitchen…the most used room in our home. We’ve recently started updating the kitchen and are actually still in progress. The previous owners remodeled the kitchen about 20 years ago, and it was in need of a little refresh. I have not done a kitchen update post, yet, so I’ll share a few of the changes that are happening. I painted the kitchen cabinets white and switched out the drawer pulls for these brass ones. I refinished the top of the island, but I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with the base. Next is to paint all of the wood trim.
This brass kitchen faucet is also a new addition. It has the option of coming with or without a touch feature that always you to turn it on just by tapping it!
This cute little ceramic bunny is a candy dish, but I used it to plant some basil.
I am a sucker for cookie jars, and this little black and white striped bunny cookie jar is a new favorite!! I use them to keep dog treats in, and if the number we have around our house is any indicator of how spoiled our pup is, and I think you’d agree that he’s spoiled rotten.
I hope you enjoyed my spring home tour! I recently shared our blue and blush spring dining room tablescape if you want to see more of our home decorated for spring.
