The Breath of Fresh Air Spring Home Tour and see 30 beautiful homes decorated for spring!
All of this crazy cold weather in March has got me looking forward to spring. I’m ready for the winter days to be over and for the warm, sunny spring days to be ahead! I’m sure you’re feeling the same. There’s just something about spring that makes me feel so much better.
I was craving the change that comes with the new season, and I decided to take down all of my mismatched winter decor and start decorating for spring instead.
While it may not be spring here yet, for right now I’m just pretending like it is!
This year, I decided to go simple. I felt like our home needed to breathe after the holidays and the long winter. I didn’t want to drag out tons of “stuff” and fill every surface. Instead, I wanted our home to feel clean, uncluttered and relaxing.

I’m joining a bunch of blogger friends for the Breath of Fresh Air Spring Home Tour to share our homes styled for spring. This week-long blog hop is hosted by Mansa from This is Simplicite. If you are just stopping over from Shawna’s home at Willow Bloom Home Blog, welcome! I can’t wait to show you around.
You can see all of the other homes from the Breath of Fresh Air Spring Home Tour at the bottom of his post. You’ll find lots of ideas for decorating your own home!
My favorite thing about spring is all of the fresh flowers and greenery! I can’t wait until everything starts blooming again and all the colors return. But, until then, I have to stick with my indoor and faux plants. And let’s be honest, faux florals and greenery work better for me anyways! I don’t have the best record with plants!
Our living room is situated at the top of our stairs as you walk up from the basement. We live in a townhome, so the living room is actually on the second floor.
This is our favorite place to rest, relax and spend time together.
When I first started decorating this space, I had all of my decor items strewn around the floor. I kept trying to combine items and make these pretty vignettes for spring and I was feeling so frustrated. I just couldn’t get it to look “right.”
That’s when I decided to start taking away one thing at a time and making things super simple. And while I thought this would make my decor look boring or not well thought out, it actually made it look intentional, simple, and just what I was envisioning for my spring decor!
My big fiddle leaf fig tree, affectionately called “Figgy” sits over by the window and anchors the space.
I got this tree two years ago and I’m amazed that I’ve been able to keep it alive and growing for that long. I love it!
The big green leaves on “Figgy” provide some night green color and keep things light and airy for spring.
Over on the side table, I placed some faux greenery stems inside a simple wood and white ceramic vase.
On the side table, I kept things simple with a spring picture frame and a candle.
Underneath, I have a nice big cozy blanket in our felt storage basket, because even though spring is coming, it’s still a little chilly.
As usual with the changing of seasons, I like to swap out my pillow covers. I tried to keep the color palette neutral with blues and tans. And I really love the combination! It feels casual and collected.
One of the newer pieces of furniture in this room is these modern bookshelves. I was excited to change the shelves up for spring!
Again I started decorating by adding lots of things and trying to rearrange, but nothing felt right.
So, I just started taking things away and keeping the shelves really simple and open. Once I was done, I loved the result!
This new vase is one of my favorite pieces! It’s new for spring this year and I love that it will work in our home year round.
Also, did you spot my mini “Figgy” on the top of these shelves? That one is real too — who am I, and how am I keeping these plants alive?
Those other two plants on the shelves are fakes, but I love the color that they add. Greenery is always my go-to when I decorate a room.
On the other side of the room is our media center with our TV. I have future plans for the wall space above the TV, because it’s looking a little bare. For now, I decided to decorate the open space on the media center with some simple spring items.
All of these items are new, which is not common for me when it comes to decorating. Usually, I try and reuse a lot of my decor. But I was recently in Homegoods and found this faux potted fern, this light wash wooden sculpture, and this marble picture frame and loved how they looked together!
I think they will also be great additions to my rotating home decor that I can use in multiple different seasons.
My favorite thing about this combination is all of the texture! The vase is this beautiful dark but with a textured finish. And the sculpture is really unique looking. It has a really organic look and is made out of smooth wood. The marble frame has a slightly raised pattern which is hard to see in photos. But overall, it gives it just a little more interest.
I extended my spring decor slightly onto the other side of the house in the kitchen. I picked up this beautiful, large ceramic crock vase that I’ve been seeing all over Instagram!
So many bloggers have it filled with beautiful greens all over their house. I just couldn’t resist and I had to get one too! I love it! And I can’t wait to find some really pretty faux olive branches to fill it with next.
In the dining room, I changed the decor on our console table. I reused all items that I already had to create a simple spring vignette.
I ended up using a lot of blue, but I think I really like that. Blue is peaceful and relaxing. It works well for almost all of the seasons and I like incorporating it into our home decor.
I hope you enjoyed this tour of our home all decorated for spring!
