How to Decorate with Spring Decor
Spring is such a gorgeous season, especially at our Waco Airbnb. Today, I am sharing tips for adding spring decor to your home.
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. The sun begins to shine more often and the spring flowers begin to bloom. It’s the perfect time to freshen up your spring decor with some bright and colorful spring decor. Here are some of our favorite ideas to help get you started. Happy decorating!
How to Decorate Your Home with Spring Decor
I love our home in Waco. It is Airbnb’d (is that now a verb?) and booked year-round. It definitely has busy seasons, like the fall for Baylor football and Silobration, and May for graduation, but I must confess, spring is my favorite season in Waco.
One of the things that I think makes our Airbnb in Waco so special is that I decorate it as if I was living there full-time. All of the furniture is thoughtfully chosen and much of it was bought at Round Top Antiques Show. I also do a light seasonal update, as I did here with spring decor.
Here are my tips for adding/changing seasonal decor.
Planning Spring Decor
When I think of tips to decorate your home for spring, the process is very simple.
- Assess Your Home and Needs
- Shop Your Own Home
- Pick Your Color Palette
- Find the Right Accessories (spring florals, pillows, etc.)
Assess Your Home and Needs
The first thing I did was decide what our home needed to get it ready for Spring. The home was just fine as it is, but if you know me, then you know I needed to make some changes.
I decided I wanted to do a light refresh. When your home is an Airbnb a guest doesn’t want clutter. The less the better.
I just needed something to make the room look and feel like spring.
Shop Your Home
Before we went shopping we took a full inventory of any items in our home that we wanted to use. I found a lot of vases that we could use. We also decided to use the tissue paper cherry blossom branches that I made over a year ago. They look great and the color was perfect.
Picking a Color Palette
I love picking a color when I am decorating a room with seasonal decor. It wasn’t hard to pick the color for Spring. As I walked around our home and look for colors that were already featured, I found myself constantly looking at the color in the two abstract paintings I had painted for our home.
So a pink-orange color was the choice!
Did you know I was a full-time artist before I created this blog? You can find out more about “my secret life as an artist” here.
Finding Spring Decor Florals
We shopped the stores looking for some reasonably priced spring décor items.
The first thing we looked for was spring florals.
We bought florals at the Magnolia Market and at the Magnolia Little shop on Bosque. I love both of these stores. The Little Shop on Bosque is where Magnolia began. It was Joanna’s first shop. I love to come to this shop and try to think about what Chip and Joanna’s lives must have been like back then.
The Little Shop on Bosque is now home to slightly damaged and last chance discount items. The florals that we chose were all 50% off. Be sure to visit the Magnolia Market first, when you show your Magnolia Market receipt at the Little Shop on Bosque, you get an extra discount.
If you are planning a trip to Waco, be sure to read my blog post titled How to Plan a Trip to Waco and the Magnolia Silos.
We even found the most perfect floral wreaths for the windows.
We found pillows at Marshall’s and World Market.
The pillows are subtle and I love them!

We also added a pop of color with more faux florals in the kitchen.
By adding a minimal amount of decor, the house looks so much better and brighter for spring.
Our home has an open floor plan with a living room, dining room, and kitchen that are all connected. By adding spring decor in each room, the area looks bright and cohesive.
It also feels like just the right amount of spring decor. With a rental, you don’t want to overdo it. Actually, I kind of feel the same way about our home too. What do you think?
I hope you found my how to decorate for spring tips useful. Even minor touches of color can make a huge impact in any room.

Soft and simple~ I love the changes!
Thank you Cynthia! I was so happy to be back in Waco!
Hi Leslie. I’m enjoying your blog so much. I really love the style of this home, in Waco. The cream settee, is my favorite piece. I’m looking for something similar for our new home, in Chiatura, Georgia. I wanted to ask what the pretty pink buds are, in the vase, on the cover photo. They are just lovely.
Hi Christina, thank you so much for reaching out and for your kind words. Here is a link to the cream settee if you want to check it out: https://amzn.to/2PSVcjC. I got the florals and matching wreaths at Magnolia last week. They are currently out of stock, but here is the link to them if you want to check on their status: https://shop.magnolia.com/collections/florals/products/dried-natural-platycarya-wreath and https://shop.magnolia.com/collections/florals/products/dried-platycarya-stem

Wow, everything looks amazingly comfortable and inviting. I love the idea of “shopping your home “ for spring. Thanks for sharing. Happy Easter to you and your family
Happy Easter to you and your family Ivory! Shopping my home is one my favorite things to do! I move things around, change them up, it is so uch fun. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
All great ideas. I especially love the wreaths on the windows.
Love your style! 🥰
I always love reading your blogs. I’ve picked up so many great ideas from you. I absolutely love the colors of your abstract painting. When I saw it; I finally knew what I wanted my Spring/Summer color pallet to be. This has been a huge dilemma for me. I love to change up and freshen things in my home seasonally and sometimes my creative ideas just get a little stuck. Thank you and is it possible to purchase your painting?
So pretty Leslie. As always simply elegant. Love the furniture in the Waco living room.
You put fabulous in simple! l love your style.
Thank you Wanda! That is so kind.
Oh I love that house! Your spring refresh is beautiful and you know how much I love your abstracts. The one on the entry wall is maybe my favorite of all time. Thanks for the great tips and more peeks at this gorgeous place! Happy Friday!
Thanks so much Barbara! Have a great weekend!
