Spring Inspired Living Room

If you had a chance to read yesterday’s post you know we are super excited to welcome all things Spring into our home and today, we’re sharing how we added a few touches of Spring to the living room.

Honestly, we really like to keep things as simple as possible in here especially when it comes to seasonal decorating. We change out the flowers on the coffee table, the pillows on the couch, maybe a few books or blankets, decorate the mantel and we’re good to go.

Decorating the mantel for Spring was fairly easy when we decided to use these botanical and insect prints. We’ve had them for years! We bought ours at a consignment store in Georgia but I think you can still find something similar online.

They definitely have a vintage feel and the colors are pretty muted which is consistent with the style in the rest of our home.

We used 5 of the prints on the mantel and I’ll show you how we used the 6th print in the breakfast nook tomorrow.

This is one of our favorite rooms to read in so it was fun to add the books to make it feel cozy like a library.

Our mantel is a little over 7 feet long so I always vacillate between decorating every square inch and keeping things fairly minimal.

We white washed this pot last year and left it out to weather over the summer. We found the faux sage plant at IKEA.

We took the TV out of this room last year and you guys, we love it! It has quickly become one of our favorite places to cozy up with good books or magazines and just relax.

This sunny spot is almost always taken.

We leave this basket on the coffee table throughout the year. It’s really easy to move if ever a game breaks out or if someone wants to prop their feet up with a big blanket and read.

We found these flowers at Michaels! They were 40% off and we had a coupon for an extra 20% off so sign up for their email list if you have a chance. It helps to stretch your decorating budget. We really like them (they also have pink in our area) so we might pick up a few more for the kitchen or the dining room.

We bought these wooden eggs at an auction several years ago

and the vintage trophy bowl is a thrifted find.

The couch is constantly piled with pillows which we use nearly every day. I have quiet time with my devotion, journal and a big cup of coffee in here each morning. The fabric is suede so on one hand it’s very easy to clean, on the other, it looks like it always needs to be combed or brushed.

Given we have an open concept open, we are hyper aware of keeping a consistent color palette throughout our house. You can see the breakfast nook from this vantage point.

As with the coffee table, we like to use easy to move trays on the end table too. This tea cup held sprigs of cedar for winter so we changed the cedar out some moss and gray eggs. Super simple, right?

Another easy trick is using Spring branches! These are from the Bridal Bush in our yard but you can easily find faux branches at most craft supply stores too.

Whenever you’re ready to start decorating a busy place like the living room for Spring, consider these tips…

  • Keeping seasonal decorating simple will make it more manageable.
  • Use a color palette that is consistent with the rest of your home.
  • Trading out flowers, pillow covers, blankets and/or the items on your mantel will help your living room feel festive without a lot of extra fuss.
  • Consider placing seasonal vignettes on trays for coffee tables and end tables so they can be easily moved for family game nights or propping your feet up to create a cozy reading spot.

I hope these tips have helped! What are your favorite Spring decorating tips for the living room?

See you guys back here tomorrow. We’ll share our Spring inspired breakfast nook. Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

Many blessings,

CoCo

  1. I am seeing botanical prints everywhere this year even in places like Home Goods. I never thought about them for spring but I may add a few to the house now. Thanks

    1. Botanical prints are very neutral so you’ll probably be able to enjoy them all year depending on which prints you choose. I know several friends that change their prints out with the season because it’s such a budget friendly option. I don’t know if you’ve tried The Graphics Fairy website yet but she has some really pretty ones and most of them are free! Hugs, CoCo

  2. Hey CoCo – it is so fun to see where you spend your time in your home. We can just visualize you curled up on the couch, strategizing and making plans for Team Goat! Love all of your touches of spring – couldn’t help but notice the Girl Scout Handbook 🙂 Hugs to a fabulous day!

    1. Thanks so much ladies! That Girl Scout book is so fun, right? It’s SO old, I love to snuggle up and see what kind of advice was popular back in the day. Big hugs to you both, CoCo

  3. Thank you for giving us quick and simple tips Coco. I dont have time to redecorate everything but I can add a few eggs here and there and change up the pillows and the mantel. This takes the pressure off a lot

    1. You are so welcome, Sarah! Do not feel pressured to make seasonal decorating perfect. We just put a few things out here and there and call it a no fuss day. I would rather be spending my money on flowers for the front porch any day of the week ha ha. Hugs, CoCo

  4. Your living room is really pretty CoCo. I can’t believe you don’t have a tv in the living room because that would never fly at my house ha ha. Although I could see myself cozying up by the fire all the time if I lived at your house.

    1. ha ha I will say it wasn’t an easy transition for everyone, Ashley. There was a lot of discussion about it before we made the final move. We also made sure that everyone has a special place to watch tv no matter what time of day it is. It’s a balance but it’s definitely worth it! Hugs, CoCo
