We’re just going to ignore the fact that it’s supposed to SNOW in Wisconsin today and pretend it’s spring out there, because today is my spring home tour.
I’ve heard it’s warm in other parts of the country. So hopefully you lucky warm weather people enjoy these spring decorating tips!
As for you guys who are also still in winter temps, feel free to charge ahead and decorate your house for spring like I did. Even if you’re wearing a scarf. (Spoiler alert: I am.)
Thanks to Steph from Casa Watkins for organizing the tours this week. She assigned a decorating style to each day, which makes it even more fun.
Today is traditional, but there are eclectic, transitional and farmhouse styles, too, if those are more your thing. The full list of styles and home tours is below.
I’m sharing the living room and kitchen today. The rest of the house isn’t too springy, you know, given that there are still extra blankets out on the family room couch and the beds upstairs so we can stay warm.

I’m still all about green, which is actually quite perfect for spring.
You can see I’m still going through my throw pillow addiction.
I added these green candleholders to the mantel to freshen it up.
Green hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers. My cousin brought me these a couple of weeks ago, and they STILL look good! I used Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick’s handy trick, and it works!
If you follow me on Instagram, I talked about this last week, because I was so excited about it.
Even though they’re one of my favorites, I usually don’t buy hydrangeas because I feel like I’m always throwing them away after just a few days so it’s a waste of money. Thanks to Sarah, not anymore! This may just be the summer of hydrangeas.
Well, after the snow melts.
I’ve gotten a few questions about the fireplace screen. It’s from At Home, and it was WAY cheaper ($35) than any nice looking other fireplace screen I’ve found.
I searched for almost a year, and most of the ones I found were in the $100-$200 range. So if you’re looking for a nice fireplace screen, head to At Home!
I’m all about green and white in the kitchen, too, although that’s pretty typical in here. I have red bar stool cushions I use sometimes, but I brought out the green ones for St. Patrick’s Day, and I decided to leave them. It feels springy/summery.
I have fun decorating with this wooden drink caddy throughout the year. The green and yellow flowers are perfect for pretending it’s spring outside.
One of my Easter touches is this cake platter/eggs combo.
The cake platter was an easy DIY project I’ll share soon, and the eggs are actually little soaps. I know, weird thing to decorate with. But I thought they would look great displayed for Easter, and I’m loving the look.
“Believe” is one of my favorite words, and this piece stays out pretty much year round.
My other Easter touch is this little (green, of course) Easter basket.
I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m a huge fan of Fixer Upper, and Joanna’s style is starting to rub off on me.
I found this metal napkin basket on a recent shopping trip and had to have it.
My Grandmom got me those pretty napkins a while ago. I always feel like pretty napkins are too, well, pretty to use.
This turned out to be a great thing, because now I have nice napkins to display in my new basket!
I may or may not have instructed Kalen these napkins are for display only, and he can continue using the regular Target napkins we keep in the pantry.
That’s about it for spring decor around here.
Remember to check out the other ladies’ home tours. Some of them live in warm states where spring is a real season, so they have a bit more of a spring look to their homes!
