Easy Spring Living Room Decor (Tour 2019)

This post contains affiliate links. See bottom of post for full disclosure.

Welcome to the best time of year! ....that is for me at least, when the weather gets warmer and I get to open the windows and let a fresh breeze flow in. Another good part? That its getting darker later. Yep! I don't have to close the blinds at 4:30 anymore :) In honor of such a great time, I'll be sharing with you my living room all decorated for spring! This tour is one of many tours going on this week hosted by Marty from A Stroll Thru Life. If you are joining along the tour hop, welcome from Hymns & Verses!. You can find all the links for this weeks tours at the bottom of the post.

 Spring decor to me is adding pops of greens, and this year, pink! I don't get rid of layers for spring...well, first, because I love layering and love all my pillows and blankets. Second, even though it's technically the first day of spring (yay!), we still get snow around here until May, if not June .... so yeah, blankets are still needed for sure!

 I don't tend to do big changes in my decor between seasons, besides Christmas. The changes that happen are through pillows, and the blankets usually play musical chairs throughout the house. I also update my mantel.

 This little corner here gets the most action in the house. Seriously. It's where movies are watched, hair is done, conversations are had, and the craziest gymnastics and tumbling tricks are made. It's amazing this chair is still standing :)

I added this cute little dough bowl with some beaded garland to update this side table. That timer is actually perfect to time timeouts (mom tip!). :)

I throw my favorite random decor pieces up on these shelves. These shelves were the best decision I made for this space a couple of years back along with this media cabinet. You can see the tutorial for that here.

 I am still a little obsessed with the wood in these built-ins. I have no plans in the near future to move them out. I feel like if I move these off, the shelves are going to look too busy quickly. I like the simplicity and impact of the wood.

 As for my mantel, I decided to go full on eucalyptus with it. This wreath was a project from last year (tutorial here). I also kept the birch branch from Christmas and hung some eucalyptus garland from it. I finished off the look with my go-to accessories: candles and books!

 I realized the other day how often I find myself sitting on the floor. Then I also realized how much it hurts my butt and back....so, I found this awesome little floor pillow and my butt/back have been saved! Plus, it functions as a dog bed too...apparently :)
 This tray was also updated with some faux greens and eucalyptus stems in a vase.

Here's my living room looking towards our dining room. I love those faux beams! I think I need to chunk them this year.

 As you can see, my layering has not changed for spring! Still lots of pillows and blankets, but the use of lighter colors and the pink helps the transition to spring decor.

 Earlier this year, I moved my faux apothecary cabinet to this corner to house the kids toys. That gave me another little tabletop to decorate! It's been fun playing around with this area....it totally changes weekly!

 And yes, even though it's spring...I still want summer! 90 degree temps is what my body needs :) For the space, I used this cute wood letter board for the saying and then added spring elements with the faux garland and painted terracotta pots.

Spring Dining Room Decor (Tour 2019)

This post contains affiliate links.

Happy week of spring! I'm excited to share my spring dining room with you all today. This tour is one of many tours or spring projects going on this week brought to you by the talented Jen from Noting Grace. You'll be able to see all that's going on at the bottom of the post. If you haven't checked out the first on the project hop, Lindsey from Repurpose and Recycle, be sure to check her out too:)


For spring this year, I kept it mainly neutral but added lots of pops of green. I think green is almost the new neutral...or they seem to compliment each other pretty good :) I haven't shared my dining room since Christmas, so let's get on with it!

The tablescape is something that was a little leftover from Christmas and some new things added in. I have been on this weird candlestick collecting binge lately, so I had to add some on the table...by some, I mean 8. Ha! Let's just say if my power ever went out, I would totally be set in terms of lighting. Not just for in here, but for my whole house. Yes, it might be a bit obsessive :)

 I found this amazing weathered wood crate at Home Goods recently and couldn't find any place it would fit...it's to wide for almost all my tables. So, I placed it on here and kind of loved it. Just gave this tablescape another layer...and some height!

The table runner was a find from Hobby Lobby. The texture in it is great, and it's a great contrast to my dark table. I then swagged some lambs ear garland along it and in between the candlesticks.

 For the place settings, I used my go-to favorite braided place mats along with round plates and alternating square and round bowls. That's what happens when things break! You improvise :) These napkins are new and from the etsy shop Living With Amanda. As for what's inside each bowl... I was at a weird standstill on what to do in each bowl. I felt the bowls just looked too empty. I usually add something in them, and for spring, it's usually some sort of greens. Well, as you can see I have a fair share of greens already going on in here, so I was trumped. Then I went to my favorite thing to add to empty spaces...wood bead garland. But, I only had a few big ones. So, I made these cute little ones just for the place settings. You can see the tutorial for them here >

 My buffet has become a favorite place to decorate especially with the addition of my new bread boards.

 This is just a few of the boards in my collection. I think they add so much charm to the space.

 I know there are a lot of people who actually decorate their tiered trays...I don't :) Mine is kept strictly for coffee mugs cuz goodness knows I have too many! I can't let prime real estate like that go to waste ;) This cute little stool is actually a plant stand from Hobby Lobby. I just topped it with a napkin to add that extra little layer.

 Here's an angle that isn't shown often, but I wanted to share with you my new wired cup holder. I had my DIY one there for years, but got such a great deal on this one, I had to get it.

 And another angle not shown often...usually because my kitchen is always trashed. haha :) I'm actually going to share my kitchen with you next week with some minor updates (not trashed). But, for now, this is what you get.

 I know it's odd, but I'm a total fan of adding blankets and pillows to dining room chairs. It's a great way to soften up the look and make it look more inviting. Even though it's spring and that's supposed to mean good weather, it rarely is around here. So, it's nice having a blanket to throw on when it gets cold...yes, even during dinner. But this space actually gets used a lot more than just to eat food :)

And there you have it! My dining room is seriously one of my favorite rooms. We have thought about moving often, but my dining room always pulls me back in. You'd be surprise at how many houses around here don't have a formal dining room. I wouldn't consider ours too formal since it opens to our living room, but it's a great size and separate enough. Plus, this table goes to 10 feet. Imagine trying to find a house that fits that :)
