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.

So beautiful & charming!
Where did you get the chandelier above the dining table? I love it!

Your home is like a breath of fresh air. I love every bit of your style and that it is relaxed….like a family lives there! Happy Spring!
Love what you did with the kitchen. So fresh and clean looking with just the right amount the “worn” look. Great job!
I like the French country designs. They look rustic but classy farmhouse style which is very popular right now.
Thank you so much!
Those flowers are beautiful! Definitely a must for spring styling 🙂
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! I love it all!!!
SO FANCY with the ‘click to page 2″ feature!! Also Beth, I can’t get enough of your house. Our color pallets are similar and I could easily move right in with you! 😉 That brick wall (all the heart eyes)! I’m sure you’ve shown it before but I never realized how the eat-in kitchen table fit into the orientation of your kitchen! I love it!
Ha! Because I went a little bit overboard on the pics the post wasn’t loading quickly or properly. The page 2 seemed to help! And thanks girl! You know how much I adore your home and I completely agree. We share a similar decor brain…and I like it. 🙂 Thanks again for inviting me to join your tour!
Jennifer @ Town and Country Living says
Your home is beautiful, Beth! I especially love the way you set your table. I like your stone back splash, too.
Thanks Jennifer! I was telling my husband yesterday that our stone backsplash is probably my all-time fav DIY project that we did together. I’m glad you like it too. 🙂

Hi Jamie! I love your area rug under your dining table ! It’s soooooo pretty. Did you share where you found it, and I missed it (if so, sorry about that!). Do you mind sharing where you bought it? I’d love to get one!
Hi Lynne, My dining room rug was purchased at Pottery Barn years ago. It’s a wool and jute rug and has held-up so well over the years. They don’t have this lighter color any longer but do have a slightly darker one that I love here: http://rstyle.me/n/ch6gqsn7aw
Gorgeous! I love every detail and could move right into your house. So great being on this tour with you. I’m hoping your blog doesn’t think I’m not a robot like my blog thinks you’re a robot lol.

Your home is decorated so beautiful for spring but especially love the the white lace up boots…where did you get them?
Thanks! Those little boots are sort of my signature item. I include them every year in my home tours and change out the laces to fit my decor. 🙂 I’ve had them for a decade and unfortunately can’t find something similar. I bought them at a discount store.
Dianne Gingrich says
Love all the charm and details.
Thank you so much for stopping by and viewing my spring tour Dianne! I appreciate it! 🙂
Chelsea Coulston says
Really beautiful, Beth! I love your tips especially the live running when setting a tablescape. It’s perfect for spring! So fun being on this tour with you!
Thanks Chelsea! Live runners are my go-to whenever I decorate my table. I just love the way they look! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I know how hard that is to do with so many blogs to visit!
So incredibly pretty! I love everything in your home. Your dining room is gorgeous. Thanks for opening up your home to us.
Thanks so much Leslie! It’s always fun to share it each season with you!
Jennifer Lifford says
I’m in love with your home! There’s so much character, textures, beautiful patterns – I don’t even know where to start. Thank-you so much for sharing. Happy Spring!
Thanks girl! It was great to be on the tour with you. 🙂
So pretty, Beth. LOVE it all. x
Hi Danielle! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
Julie Blanner says
So pretty! Your home has so much character and I love all your beautiful fresh spring blooms.
I wish I had a huge budget for fresh flowers every week! Wouldn’t that be fabulous?! They make such a difference in every room. Thanks for stopping by Julie!
Kim Hull says
I agree – your flowes are absolutely gorgeous. Would love to know how you get them to stand up so beautifully in such a shallow bowl? They make such a statement.
Thanks Kim! I’ll try and do a post on how I arrange flowers. It’s a simple use of floral foam and scotch tape.
Just lovely. Thank you for a gorgeous post!
Roxy Trovillion says
Love everything….so timeless…
Beautiful post. Where I’d you get the dining table?
Hi Karen! I’m just seeing your comment today for some reason. Sorry I missed it. I bought my table on Hayneedle and love it. Here is the link for it: http://rstyle.me/n/cnhnexn7aw
