Hi friends! I don’t need the pollen count to know that it’s spring in Georgia. The trees are getting their leaves once again and everything seems to be in bloom. It’s such a pretty time of the year! I’ve said it before, but I think I love my home a little more in the spring. I love all of the soft colors, fresh flowers and the airy feel of our home. Today, I’ve joined a few blogging friends to share some simple ways to decorate for spring with you. If you’re wanting to bring the season indoors, it really doesn’t require anything fancy. Here are a few simply ideas that I use year after year to incorporate spring into our home.
Create a floral arrangement with real & faux blooms.
Homemade floral arrangements are a must in my home most of the year, but especially in the spring. I’ve always been a strictly real flower kinda gal until recently. I’ve been loving the mix of real and faux flowers together in arrangements. Whether you pick up some fresh flower at the grocery store, cut a few stems from your yard, or assemble an arrangement of real and faux, floral arrangements are always the perfect compliment to spring.

Simple clippings from the yard are free and add so much spring charm. Use a unique vessel to keep things interesting.
Incorporate light-weight & soft colored linens.
I’m a true believer that fabrics have the potential to contribute so much to a space. They have the ability to set the mood for a room and reflect the current seasons. I love swapping my linens out. My spring and summer bedding and pillow covers are among some of my favorites. After becoming frustrated with the limited fabric options of pillows in stores, I taught myself how to sew and have had a whole world of fabric options opened up to me. If you love decorating and do not know how to sew, I really recommend learning. I personally learned by watching YouTube and reading sewing blogs. It’s truly a game changer!

Soft colored duvets and block print quilts are the perfect bedding for spring and summer. I usually put away my heavy knitted bedding and break out the floral duvets and light-weight quilts. Below you’ll find a post on my favorite source for quilts.

It’s been a roller coaster of weather here in California. I have enjoyed the days of spring weather and I love your ideas for giving home a lighter look for the season. Thank you for always inspirational ideas for home.
I have been enjoying your blog for quite some time, I love you style and look forward to your posts. I know you mentioned you sew your own pillow covers, but I was wondering if the pillows in the first picture, the floral and the checked are your own creations, or do you have a source? I have tried to sew in the past, but just couldn’t stick with it…
