As the wind howls and rain pummels my windows, I’m dreaming of spring. I love hunkering down and being cozy when the weather is nasty, but the house feels pretty bland, and the gray skies aren’t helping. If you’re looking out at cold, dreary, or bleak February weather, let’s cheer ourselves up with some spring home decor ideas.
I order most of my spring decor items from Amazon because they come quickly and are easy to return if something doesn’t work out!
Tips for Freshening Up Your Home
Here are some simple switches you can make to get ready for spring in your home:
- Change out your throw pillow covers. It’s much more cost-effective to use the same pillows and just change the covers. Plus it saves a ton of storage space.
- Trade your heavy winter blankets for lightweight throws…unless you live where it’s frigid for a few more months.
- Add a wreath to your door! It’s nice to look at as you come and go. We finally took our Christmas one down and are awaiting its replacement.
- Set the table by switching out your tablecloth, table linens, and napkin holders.
Spring Home Decor from Amazon
Bee Guest Towels
I love Bees. I’m fascinated to watch them in the garden, and I like things imprinted with their likeness…even though I dislike yellow. Go figure. This spring, I purchased these Bee Guest Napkins, which we use as towels in the powder room. I’ll occasionally use these for dinner napkins, but we usually use fabric.
Switching out your throw pillow covers is such an easy way to update your decor for each season. A good insert (like this one) is important for making an inexpensive cover look its very best. I just unzip my current covers, wash them, and store them until I’m ready to use them again. All shades of green feel so fresh for spring.
I also thought these covers were pretty too, and would add a little texture and interest to a couch, chair, or bed.
There’s nothing quite like cuddling up under a nice throw blanket while you drink your favorite cup of tea or coffee and dive into a new book! Throw blankets look wonderful across the end of the bed or on the back of your accent chairs. I took my Barefoot Dream blanket up to our apartment in Vancouver because the color matched perfectly. I replaced it in our California home with this one, which is a fraction of the cost!
Flowers around the house certainly make it feel more like spring! These cherry blossom branches would be beautiful in a vase on a nightstand, coffee table, or kitchen counter. I’ve read that dried flowers and plants are not good for the Feng Shui of your home, but silk or artificial flowers are just fine!
Speaking of flowers, if you have a black thumb (like yours truly), you’ll love this impossible-to-kill faux orchid. This would be great if you travel a lot or if you have a room with no windows or very little natural light. I know a gal who brings her real orchids back to flower each year. It’s uncanny…and I call her the plant whisperer.
Replacing your dish and hand towels is another extremely simple and affordable way to update your spaces for each season, especially if you like to hang one from your stove or dishwasher handle. I liked the look of these lavender kitchen towels, as well as these sage green ones.
The bottom of my hand soap always tends to leave a little ring on my counter, so I thought this rustic wooden riser was an attractive solution. If you aren’t worried about aesthetics, this silicone one looks very easy to clean and super functional. BTW- Switching out your hand soap for a fresher fragrance is another way to uplift your kitchen. I love this one and use it to refill my containers.
While I’m an advocate for buying art from local artists and small shops, I’ll admit that I didn’t realize Amazon had such a large selection of artwork. Our new apartment still has very little on the walls, and I spotted a few pieces, like this abstract piece by Julia Purinton, that I thought would add a little color and personality to our space.
I shared these last year, but I still love these bee glasses. A few of ours have been chipped and had to be tossed because of careless dishwasher emptying, but I will never complain because my husband is doing the work! We have the tall set and this short tumbler set.
A gallery wall is a great way to fill a large empty space on your walls, especially in a hallway or above a piece of furniture. I would probably fill mine with some family photos since I have a lot of new photos of my grandsons, but these colorful wall prints would look great, too!
I hate clutter, so anything that contains it is a favorite of mine. You could use this beautiful and functional brass and glass storage display box in so many different ways around your home. It would look pretty sitting on a dresser housing your most worn jewelry, corralling remotes on a coffee table, or holding keys and other odds and ends on an entryway table.
I know many of you update your front door wreaths with each season. It’s a simple way to update the exterior of your home and brighten up your curb appeal. I thought this purple one would look beautiful for spring, although I also like this blue forsythia version. I just ordered this one because I thought it would look stunning against our black front door.
We burn candles all the time. These La Jolie Muse candles are great because they have a wooden wick that crackles slightly when you burn them. I’m obsessed with lavender everything so we’re burning this one a lot these days.
While I’d love to add real plants to every room of my house, I know better than to think I can keep them alive. Luckily, faux plants and trees have come a long way, and many of them look very realistic. Olive trees are very popular right now, as are fiddle-leaf figs. Our one and only fiddle-leaf plant died a gruesome death when we were away last summer, so I have my eye on this faux one. Just be sure to put yours in a lovely pot and cover the top with some mossy-looking stuff.
