You may be thinking to yourself “How do I transition my house from winter to spring?” There are many ways to transition from winter and welcome spring into your home.

The first thing to is give the house a good spring cleaning. Lots of decluttering usually is going on from January through the end of March. All the base boards and doors get a good wipe down.

It is the perfect time to shampoo any area rugs in your rooms or send them off to be professional clean. Over the weekend, this large 11 x 15 rug got a good cleaning with my Bissell Carpet Cleaner.

Our fur babies, Piper and Chibi, the puppy.

Currently, I have one rug down and it’s in the family room. We are house training a puppy.

Chibi is doing well at 7-months. The house is puppy proofed by removing our two nice rugs from the dining room and kitchen dining area.

It’s time to change out the winter decorations to spring. Try dressing your fireplace for spring by adding faux flowers in bright and cheery colors. The cherry blossom stems are great for tall vases.

There is something beautiful about using greenery in your spaces. Why add greenery to your home? Adding greenery to your home is a trend that will never go out of style. It makes the room feel and look fresh. It gives the room a cozy feel.

Add fun seasonal pieces to your spring decorations. Here a rabbit stretches out on the mantel with spring green hanging hops bushes nestled around it. You can keep you mantel and hearth simple or go elaborate. My mantel, I can easily remove the rabbit with the hops and keep everything else as we move into the summer.

Gray sofa with blue & white pillows.

For spring, hues of blues were added to the family and dining rooms. New pillows covers in shades of blue and white brightens up the gray sofa. This brand of pillows covers were reasonably priced with good quality fabric. Each pillow has piping in a solid blue.

The pillows are fur babies approved! These sweet girls are snuggle bugs and love to cuddle on the sofa with me.

Blue fringed place mat with white plate and blue and white salad plate.

You can create a beautiful spring table setting. Try pulling in a color that you love.

For Easter, we will have casual dining. If you are like me and love the look of a beautiful wood table, add a pretty spring table runner in lieu of a tablecloth.

To protect your table, use chargers or placements. It will protect the table from the heat from hot plates of food.

Try adding salad plates in different patterns. Cloth napkins can be laid under the salad plate or next to the plate with silverware on top.

Shop local thrift stores for wonderful glass vases and candle holders. Add taper candles in a coordinating color to your tablescape.

My rabbit’s name is Mr. Big.

Create a center piece for your table. A boxwood wreath is the base of my centerpiece. A large iron rabbit (Mr. Big) fits in the center of the wreath. To coordinate him with the other rabbits in the house, he got a gingham bow as well.

Hello to Mr. Big.

This fun centerpiece does not block the view of any guests. He’s sitting in the center. Remember to keep things low not to obstruct your guests’ views.

Mr. Big has been around in my house for many years. I found him at the sweetest store in Pennsylvania while visiting my husband’s family.

This past weekend, I found him a grapevine carrot from a local vintage market Rust and Grain. He looks pretty proud of his new carrot.

Remember is fun to add a touch of whimsy to your tablescape!

Dark Kitchen Island with Granite Counters.

Throughout my home you will see hues of blues and greens. These are such tranquil colors to me. For this spring, I brought in yellow. It is a color that my daughter has always loved. It all started with that yellow tray.

A wreath is a great way to add pops of color into a room. A navy blue gingham bow was added to the lemon wreath to tie in the blue from my kitchen chairs.

I love pops of color. My walls and furniture are neutral for that very reason.

What colors symbolize spring? Colors that are nature-inspired shades of yellow, orange, pink, blue, green, or lavender. The hues can range from pastel to brighter shades. Don’t be afraid of bringing in
color.

This year, I am going bold with yellow. Honestly, I have to say that it is lovely. It’s such a happy color and pairs wonderfully with greens and blues in my home.

Yellow floral apron hanging on the cabinet.

My new favorite apron from April Cornell is hung on a 3M Command Hook. I love the rose pattern on the deep mustard yellow.

Vignette with a yellow tray, candle, rabbit, and navy blue vase with white tulips.

If you want a subtle pop of color, try creating a vignette on your island. Here I am using a yellow tray as my base. A navy vase with faux tulips anchors one side, a candle and a rabbit anchor the right side.

I love using plants throughout my home. Here I have a beautiful white Cyclamen in a white ironstone vintage soup tureen. Most likely, I will replant it after Easter into another container. Try adding Hyacinths or Daffodils to bowls, planters, or vintage dishes. You can read a post about How To Decorate With Plants And Flowers here.

Twig Basket with English Ivy.

If found a set of twig baskets and tucked some English Ivy in it. I loved the organic look of the twigs with the sweet ivy.

Blue glass vase with fresh tulips and wooden bowl with dried artichokes.

You can never go wrong with fresh cut flowers in the home. Why are flowers important with home decor? Fresh flowers lift your mood and help to eliminate stress and anxiety.

Flowers add life and color in your space. The scents of flowers can be very uplifting and give a sense of relaxation. To me it has a calming effect.

This week I made this nature inspired DIY Easter centerpiece for my kitchen table. I have the easy tutorial here.

  5. First of all those doggies are adorable. I love dogs! Glad my puppy days are over though. 🙂 Love your tour! The blues and pops of yellow look fantastic and so happy. I think I need those blue pillows for my sofa though. I’ve bot been able to find any that I love. Until now! And Mr. Big is awesome. So unique. What a great centerpiece. Happy Spring!

    1. Thank you, Cindy. Mr. Big did not need a lot of fuss on the table. Just a bow and a carrot to make him happy. LOL These are my last dogs. I doubt there will be any more. So I am soaking up every moment of enjoyment from them as empty nesters. They are my sweet baby. Pipe is a COVID dog. Meaning, I got her during being isolated when COVID first hit the year we moved it. She was the best company ever during that trying time.

  6. Your Spring home decor is beautiful. I especially love the tall regal hare you have on your dining table and of course the puppies. I am just learning about ironstone and am not confident in what it is, the brands and fair prices etc. I want one to do like you did for plants, so regal and gorgeous.

    1. Thank you, Leanna. That hare was a great find. I spotted him the minute walking into a specialty boutique. He was coming home with me. No regrets!

  7. Welcome Spring! Your home is just beautiful Tammy and I adore your touches of blue! I think I need a few of those blue pillows on your sofa. And my sister is looking at getting a french bulldog. I can’t wait to show her your two cuties! Lovely tour and beautiful pictures!

    1. Oh Kelly, you will have to send me a photo of your sister’s Frenchie. They are so much fun. Tell her to get health insurance with her Frenchie. I have it for both of my girls. They can have issues with discs. No jumping or climbing! Those pillows are wonderful. I just had to do a clean up on a pillow the other day. I love them.
