Spring Family Room Decorating Ideas: Update Your Pillow Covers
My friend Laurie from The Glam Farmhouse recently said on Facebook, “Throw pillows are the stuffed animals of grown women,” and I think I need it printed on a shirt! I’m a firm believer in having a “toss pillow wardrobe” and frequently purchase inexpensive pillow covers to add to my “wardrobe”. In spring and summer, I like to change out my heavier winter faux-fur, velvet, and tweed for lighter-and-brighter printed and solid cottons.
Updating your toss pillows and throw blankets is the easiest way to update your family room for spring! I always keep a few throws out for chilly spring nights when we have the windows open, or you know, when it decides to snow 12 inches in mid-March! I like to use cable knit throws for spring because they are like a pretty spring cardigan for your sofa.

My last spring decorating tip for the family room is to create spring vignettes on coffee tables, end tables, book shelves, and/or mantels. In decorating, a vignette is simply a small grouping of objects that creates a pleasing focal point and “tells a story”. I found this cute bunny pail and moss rocks at HomeGoods and created a lovely focal point on my coffee table using green and white accessories.

Spring Entryway Decorating Ideas
As you may have gathered by now, the first level of our urban row home is small but mighty. What our home lacks in space, it makes up for in character. I’ve saved my tiny spring entryway for last because I think it proves a big point. You don’t have to have a mansion or a large budget to make your home inviting this season!
Although this tiny space is used during the week for book bags and coats, my kids cooperate with my wishes for a seasonally decorated “mudroom” and instead use the coat closet in the vestibule to stash their stuff.
Faux greenery and flowers from HomeGoods fill my foyer with long-lasting spring goodness! I love to mix faux and real florals whenever I decorate. When you add something fresh to the faux, you have greater difficulty telling which is which!
To make my entryway look cute for spring, I always like to hang some unexpected items on the hooks. A white farmhouse pitcher filled with greenery and a straw bag filled with faux flowers adds a whimsical touch of spring to the space.
Thank you so much for taking a tour of my home decked out for spring! I hope I’ve inspired you to make the most of your space and celebrate the season! Please check out the posts below and visit the other homes on the tour for more spring decorating inspiration.
