Spring is finally here! It’s no wonder that we look forward to spring. It represents new beginnings, and the transition from our interior worlds of TV, reading and cooking to the exterior world of gardening, walking, baseball and barbecuing. Clearing out our gardens of weeds, dead plants and leaves not only makes the backyard look better; it can be good for our mental health. We’re clearing the ground for new beginnings, new growth and renewed beauty. It’s such an invigorating time of year. The desire to plant and garden can also be the physical manifestation of planting new seeds in our life experience. As we transition from the colder winter months into the season of green grasses, robins chirping and crocuses awakening from their garden beds, we want to lighten the mood indoors as well. It’s easy to do with these spring decor ideas for your home.
Turkish Towels from Stray and Wander
These Turkish Towels from Stray and Wander come in a beautiful lime green as seen in the photo, as well as other spring colours such as yellow, lavender and periwinkle blue. I love these towels for their versatility since they can be used as tea towels, tablecloths or hand towels. You can purchase the Turkish Hammam Towels from Stray and Wander. By the way, I found the hand-painted pitcher in the photo at my local Value Village, but you can buy similar pitchers on Amazon Canada.
Shadow Bird Tree Branches Throw Pillow Covers
Do you change your cushions from season to season? I never used to do this, but I have started adding new cushions to my couch when we enter a new season. These Shadow Bird Tree Branches Throw Pillow Covers in Olive Green from CaliTime Home really transform this room into a spring oasis. These pillow covers come in a set of four and they also come in yellow, orange, red, purple, teal, rust and grey. You can purchase this set of throw pillow covers on Amazon Canada for $34.
Citrus-Striped Table Runner from Pier 1 Canada
If you’re looking for easy spring decor ideas, changing your tablecloths from heavy, winter plaids or brocades to lighter pastel colours will really get your house looking like spring. This Citrus-Striped Table Runner, $32.95, from Pier 1 Canada is the perfect background for colourful spring tableware in pink, orange, green and yellow.
Extra Large All Over Poppy Doormat from Abbott Collection
A fast and easy way to give your home a spring makeover is to replace the doormat at your entrance. Nothing sings spring better than this Extra Large All Over Poppy Doormat from Abbott Collection. The vibrant flowers enliven the porch until it’s time for the real flowers to start blooming.

Place Fresh Flowers in Any Room in Your Home
It may seem one of the more simpler spring decor ideas, but a small bouquet of fresh flowers will instantly bring a spring look to your home. Buy fresh flowers at your local grocery store or visit a flower shop where you can purchase individual flowers to make your own bouquet. Place a small bouquet of fresh flowers in your kitchen, living room or bathroom for a burst of spring colour!
