It’s official! The first day of spring is this week, and I’m giddy with excitement! To celebrate, I thought it’d be fun to give you a look at my living room decor for spring.
You may remember that back in December I updated most of the furnishings in my living room (I also call this my family room.). When I first moved in, I used furniture from my former apartment. That worked OK for a while, but I wanted the room to function better and look brighter.
Just in case you missed that post, let me show you around the space and share my latest additions for spring!
Living Room Decor Ideas for Spring:
In reworking the space, I opted for two sofas instead of one. What a good decision that has been! I now have much more seating, and the light upholstery makes the room feel larger!
(The sofa, ottoman, and tv console are from Raymour & Flanigan, You can ready more about them in this post.)
For spring, I decided to update the living room decor with new throw pillows. After I put away everything from the holidays, the space was looking a bit bland.
I tried a few different color pillows but ended up loving this mauve color. I was lucky to find all of these pillows at HomeGoods. The larger mauve ones are from Ralph Lauren and seem to be high quality. I found the small maroon and white striped ones in the clearance section for only $8 each. Score!
To my eye, the colors in the pillows pick up the subtle purples in the brick, the various browns in the room, and the black in the rug.
Oh, and speaking of the rug, many of you are still asking for the source. You can find it here. I ordered the 9×12 in black. I’ve been pleased with the purchase, except that the material does tend to clog up my vacuum and vacuum brush. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the shedding will end soon, but only time will tell.
On my ottoman, I placed this mirrored round serving tray. In fact, it’s just a mirror. To my delight, Schoolhouse recently opened a brick-and-mortar store here in Pittsburgh. (You must visit if you’re local or happen to be in the area.) Anywho, when I was at the store, they had a display set up this way, and I really loved how it looked.
The small black side tables were a Target find this past holiday season. It’s my understanding that they are no longer being sold. The lamp is from IKEA. It’s not my favorite, but I just haven’t found one I like better.
More Living Room Decor Ideas for Spring:
Since we’re on the subject of lamps, let’s talk about my wall sconces. Back in the fall, when I had my electrical panel updated, I also had the electrician hide my television cable in the wall and wire in the two sconces.
You can find the sconces here. I love how they look and function. I bought them on impulse because they were an excellent price, and I needed something that could be installed immediately. It should be mentioned, however, that they require assembly. It wasn’t difficult, but I realize some folks want to avoid that step.
I also adorned the walls of the living room with new artwork.
This amazing vintage wood mold was a HomeGoods score. If you’re lucky and look closely, you might stumble upon a few legit vintage pieces at HomeGoods. Such items are rare and often pricey. However, they are likely to be less expensive than something comparable from a salvage store or flea market. For example, this mold was $39.99.
As I’ve done more and more decorating at Bayberry House, I have been rekindling my love for vintage pieces, so this mold was a super exciting find. I think it works so well as wall art.
Across the room, I added a splash of color with this abstract painting. Does it look familiar? It had been hanging in my dining room and was seen in the background of my recent Easter table. I liked the art in that room, but I especially love the bold pop of color it brings to this space.
And while my bar cart isn’t new, I still adore it. You can find it here.
Over on the mantel, things are pretty simple. The long vintage military print is from a local antique shop. I’m not sure the print will live here forever, but I needed a spot for it and thought this worked well. There are also a few hyacinth bulbs in bulb vases. (I found them at Traders Joes but have seen them at Aldi’s and in a few other stores.)
The candleholder is another HomeGoods find. I thought it fit nicely with the rest of my spring mantel decor.
It was such a fun project I put together with a $14 vase I found at HomeGoods. I’m happy to report that it is thriving!
And that my friends, is my living room decor for spring! While I’m loving how everything looks, I think a few more touches are needed here and there. I’ve kept things simple for now but will likely add to the space as the season progresses.
I hope you enjoyed this look around my living room along with the information about sources. If I’ve overlooked something or you’re curious about anything, just leave a comment below.
Have a happy weekend and a sun-filled spring!
