Finding yourself wanting to let go of winter décor and move into spring? Me too!

I have to admit on these gray-skied days I find myself staring out the window at the empty garden boxes and day dreaming of planting seeds.

I am also learning in life how important it is to embrace each season individually. Winter is a great time to slow down, catch up on home projects, get organized and embrace the season that so gently whispers to us: “rest”.

A pop of greenery in a small bowl on a table is a great Spring decor idea.

Today I am thrilled to share with you a few early Spring decorating tips and tricks for transitioning out of winter décor. This year I have felt really inspired to keep things neutral which is different than my traditional spring décor.

You may want to check out my  Touches Of Spring Farmhouse Tour or  my DIY centerpiece planter box project that I’ve done previously. Back then, I loved using florals in shades of blush for my spring style.

This year, though, I am enjoying neutrals and delicate florals so much. You might be surprised to hear that I love using faux flowers in my decor! Here are a few of my favorite floral decorations:

  • Small houseplants for a pop of green
  • Make a cozy atmosphere with pillows and quilts

This little wood bowl has been so fun to use in our kitchen! We fill it weekly with fresh fruit.
