A little bit of spring in the dining room. Plus my secret to buying new home decor accessories.

Thank you Birch Lane for sending us such lovely Spring decor goodies!

It’s Spring! Is anyone else happy it’s finally here? Of course you are! To celebrate, let’s look at a little bit of Spring in the dining room.

A Little Bit of Spring in the Dining Room

With the arrival of slightly warmer temperatures and loads more sunshine, I’ve been busy adding Spring touches inside the house.

Today it’s a little bit of Spring in the dining room.

While poking around online for Spring decor ideas, I sort of found a few new shops I adore.

(As if I needed any more places at which to spend my money!)

But do you wanna know a secret?

[Tweet “When shopping for home accessories, I choose items that can be used repeatedly each season. “]

It’s true!

I look for great shapes and neutral colors.

Then I just swap out things like fresh or faux flowers, moss, inexpensive banners, etc. with each change of season.

For instance to update the dining room for Spring, I used a couple of items I already had, plus I chose this turned mango wood candle holder set...

And this white dinnerware set. Both from Birch Lane.

Then I just added in some fresh pink tulips, a coffee cake and a sprig of fake blooms.

For another season I could change the candles, flowers and banner.

The lovely Havana gold boxes from last week’s living room post are also from Birch Lane. Their contents can be switched out with the seasons too!

So there you have it, some lovely Spring decor – and one of my decorating secrets!

You’re welcome. 🙂

Have you decorated for Spring? I guess the bigger question is – DO YOU decorate for Spring?


P.S. If you’re one of our neighbors, I’m really sorry – we’ll get to taking down the winter decorations outside very soon! 🙂

I'd love it if you'd share:

    LOVE this! It’s so sweet and rustic and subtle.
    Shannon – can you just come over and decorate my place please?! lol
    Also I had never heard of Birch Lane – checked it out… LOVE!
    It’s so hard to find places that ship to Canada too! (I’m in the GTA) so thumbs up!

      🙂 I wish that I could help more people decorate. For now though y’all are just gonna have to look at our pics and tutorials and DIY it! xo

    I love your ideas and suggestions. I don’t usually decorate the house for the seasons (except Xmas) and I’m having trouble figuring out how to incorporate small changes with decent impact.

      Small changes….each spring buy a bundle of really nice fake flowers from Michael’s with a coupon or when they’re on sale for 40% off. Then you can pull them out each year even if you can’t buy fresh flowers. Nature inspired accents like moss and sticks are good too. As is a little bit of fresh spring color in cheap and cheerful printable art, etc. 🙂

    Shannon, I just found your blog and I Love it. Your pictures are beautiful and I love your house. Did you make the “nest” banner? The barn door is fabulous. Thanks for sharing your great ideas, Denise

I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons...

Your explanation of paint colors was the light bulb moment for me! Your explanation would have saved us from painting...
