Spring 2021 Home Decor Favorites

Hello friends,

Even though the weather hasn't really felt like it here in Vancouver, technically Spring is upon us! I usually love switching up my decor for the seasons, but because we recently sold our house, I have slowly begun the process of packing! Even though I am not refreshing my decor this season, I thought I could share my favorites with you in case you are looking for some Spring inspo!

When I think of Spring style, the following things come to mind: lighter colors, floral patterns and a nod to nature. I put together some of my favorite decor items in the collage below that I either have or love, and that feel "Spring-y" to me.

As you can see, I am favoring shades of pink, green and blue which I think directly relate to what's happening outside right now!

Today I thought I would explore the 6 decor categories I showed in my Spring Collage - vases, rugs, candles, pillows, stems, baskets - in a bit more detail and share some of my favorite products with you.


Vases

It's no secret that I am a big fan of neutral vases and faux floral stems. I talked about using them as part of my "mantle styling recipe" in this post.

I incorporated these blue recycled glass ones in my collage, I have similar ones that I love to bring out for the Spring/Summer. A neutral vase like this one is timeless and can be styled for the changing seasons by switching out the stems, which I will share more about below.

This beautiful vase comes with the cherry blossom stems, so that is a one-and-done decor item that would add the perfect Spring touch to your home.


Rugs

Even though we are moving soon and I shouldn't be buying new stuff, when I saw the Jilly Box Heart Bath Mat I knew I had to have one. My existing bath mat had really seen better days anyway so I figured it was okay to replace it...that's how I justified it anyway!

You can see how perfect it looks in my bathroom, it's a great compliment to the area rug!


Candles

This has to be the easiest and most budget-friendly way to incorporate some Spring vibes into your home. I bought this candle which is a new-to-me scent and I admit that it was all about the vessel ... the beautiful detailing on the glass, the color...I am here for all of it. Added bonus that it smells amazing!

The volcano scent from Anthro is also a staple around here, the smell is just so good. Back when I could make regular trips to Target, I would buy the Hearth and Hand for Magnolia candles all the time. They smell amazing and have really pretty vessels as well.


Pillows

Another way to refresh your decor for Spring is to swap out your pillow covers. The prices range from under $10 a cover from places like IKEA to well into the double digits at places like Studio McGee or Serena and Lily. I have a real weakness for throw pillows, they are one of my favorite decorative elements to add to a space.


Here is a round up of some favorite styles I am seeing this Spring:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9


Seasonal Stems

Last year, for the first time, I went foraging outdoors for some stems to bring into my home. I don't know why I hadn't tried this sooner...free stems that look pretty in a vase? Yes please!

If foraging outside for stems isn't your cup of tea, or you want something a bit more permanent, there are lots of great looking faux stems out there. Pottery Barn has very realistic looking stems that are available online. These are the ones pictured in my collage.


Woven Materials

It's safe to say that I gravitate to woven materials all year round. I love wicker, rattan, seagrass...they have such great texture and give warmth to a space. I love the idea of using a lighter color woven material in the Spring. I bought this gorgeous lidded basket a few months ago, and while it was a bit of a splurge, I love it so much so it feels worth every penny. I use it to corral our extensive throw blanket collection.

Last year I used water hyacinth chargers as part of my Easter Tablescape and you can see it adds such gorgeous texture.


The chargers I used are "look for less" and way cheaper than this more expensive version from Pottery Barn.


Well, there you have a round up of some suggested items you can incorporate to add some fresh Spring vibes to your home. As we are experiencing our second covid Easter and under some pretty heavy restrictions in our area thanks to rising cases, a little online retail therapy can help to boost your spirits! I would love to hear what you think of my choices or if you have made any Spring additions to your home lately.

Thanks so much for reading!
