Spring is on the horizon, and I am thrilled! After a cold and gray winter, I’m excited to bring more light, color, and life into my home to welcome this new season.

I moved into this house about eight months ago. Because I sold my former house with the furnishings included, I needed to start from scratch on the decor of my living room at Bayberry House. After decorating it for Christmas (and keeping up that decor for a couple of months for a magazine photo shoot), I needed to decorate it for everyday and get it ready for spring.

In this post, I’m going to share the new decor in my living room and focus on some fresh spring decorating trends that you can infuse in your own space.

Let’s get to it!

Since I already had the foundation pieces (sofas, coffee table, TV console), I turned to soft goods and textiles to breathe new life and freshness into my living room. With HomeGoods being my go-to source, I visited my local store for a #GoFinding adventure!

Right out of the gate, I picked up these lavender/mauve pillows. I love a bit of unexpected color, and these pillows add just enough without being overpowering. Perfect for spring!

I was also found a couple darker maroon and white striped pillows in the clearance section. It pays to shop around the store and check out every aisle and corner. You never know where inspiration will strike.

These colors work well with the purples in the brick around my fireplace. In general, I’m loving more muted colors like this for spring.

Once the pillows were in place, I decided new artwork was in order. Here I went bold with this abstract print in pinks and purples. It’s a lovely statement piece, and it definitely livens up the space.

Abstract artwork like this is one of my favorite trends not only for spring but for all through the year. You may have noticed I have a few pieces of this type around my home.

Speaking of art, I was also lucky enough to find this vintage wood mold at HomeGoods. I love adding touches of the past to my spaces because such items have a story. This piece works beautifully as wall art.

Another must for spring is a botanical element or two.

Personally, I prefer real plants to faux ones. However, if faux works better for you and your home, HomeGoods has an amazing selection. Some of the plants they have for sale look so life-like, I had to touch the leaves and blooms to determine they’re not real.

For my plants, I found inspiration in this large glass vase from HomeGoods. I thought it would be ideal for a terrarium, so that’s what I created. After adding pebbles, soil, and a few plants, I had a mini indoor garden. You can get the tutorial for making your own terrarium on my blog.

I dressed up my mantel for spring with these blooming hyacinth bulbs I picked up at my local grocery. It’s amazing how a couple of plants and fresh flowers can brighten a room.

To finish off the space, I moved around a few of my decorative accessories and replenished the liquors on my bar cart.

If you have a good selection of accessories to choose from, I always recommend shopping your own home. It can be a fun way to mix things up and create a new look without spending money.

With that, I’d say my living room is ready to welcome a new season. I hope you gleaned a few ideas for rejuvenating your own space for spring!
