A timeless classic, pastel colors are synonymous with springtime. They also fit white interiors perfectly. If you like soft and toned-down hues, opt to scatter pastel accent pieces throughout the house. Think of easy to swop out and add items like scatter cushions, lamps, vases, and candles. Also, look out for artwork in pastel hues for some eye-catching spring wall décor. 

3. Light the Way

Let days linger on for longer with romantic lanterns. Indoor or outside, delicate candle holders add a welcoming glow encouraging staying up a little while longer. As an affordable option, you can easily dot a lantern or three in communal spaces or walkways. You can also place them near reflective surfaces to double the illumination.

With the right furniture or accent pieces, it’s possible to make every space seem bright and roomy. Try ECO-Glass (an alternative to acrylic and Lucite) pieces, like chairs and coffee tables, to make your home feel light and airy.

Two-tone cabinets in pastel colors are a fantastic addition to any kitchen – regardless of the season. However, if soft pastels aren’t to your taste, opt for any bright and cheery color reminiscent of springtime. For a subtle look, only add color to the lower cabinets, leaving the top ones a neutral tone, like white.

13. Shabby-Chic Spring Porch Décor Idea

Shabby-chic lovers, this spring flower décor idea is just right for your front porch. The best part is you also use two trends, namely retro and nature-inspired designs.

Put a smile on visitors’ faces by upcycling vintage containers, turning them into vases or even planters. Old watering cans, buckets, and milk pitchers will all work well. Simply make up bunches of your favorite blooms and put them into your preferred antique containers. Once the arrangements are complete, place them around your front porch area. With such lovely spring front door décor, your home is sure to become the talk of the neighborhood.

Contemporary spring flower décor tip:

Put a modern spin on the vintage look by choosing only one or two colors for the flowers and create a minimal, slender bunch instead of an abundant one. Play with height as well. Use different length stems and foliage for a balanced picture. 

14. Soft & Breezy Curtains

Flowy curtains catching the wind in gentle waves certainly set the stage for a special interior. Line the porch roof eaves with slim rods so they’re out of sight, and hang air-light voile curtains. You can use drapes as purely ornamental spring porch décor by opting for one sheet per pillar. Or if your porch is the only outdoor space you have, add enough curtains for full privacy when you need it. 

15. Swing into Spring with Porch Décor

Sometimes functionality can be fun, especially when it comes to seating. Add a little whimsy to your front porch with a swing or hanging chair. This can form part of an outdoor lounge or a small swing could hang near the front door – perfect for showing off your spring flowers or décor.
