Spring Decor Ideas in an Apartment – Light and Airy
After a damp and cold winter, do you like to lighten things up for the spring?
I sure do!
To keep things light and airy for spring, think about keeping your decor to a minimum. You don’t need to fill up every surface area.
As well as keeping things de-cluttered, think about a color palette that works for your home. In MWA, a neutral foundation works best. We’re talking whites, creams, grays, and beiges.
Then, add a pop of color or three for the season. This spring, I’m using greens with a touch of pastels.
Faux or Real – Florals in Spring Decor
Adding florals to your seasonal decor in your tiny home or apartment really gives a nod to spring.
Of course, when using real florals and greenery, it’s easy to pick up the flowers of the season. But, when using faux, be sure to use the flowers and greenery that actually bloom in the spring. This gives a more natural look.
Spring Decor Ideas – Textures
When adding spring decor to your home, using different textures adds interest.
Fill a bowl or vase with moss balls as well as grapevine balls and a few speckled eggs!
Of course, using moss balls always seems to be a good-old-stand-by for spring decor, but these vase/bowl fillers have a twist of pretty chartreuse vine that makes them extra special!
In this centerpiece, wooden boho style eggs with moss and some pastel lavender tapers are a great filler for the galvanized tray!
Different textures can include:
- Vase/bowl fillers
- Moss balls
- Different textures of eggs (wooden, speckled, DIY velvet eggs)
Spring Apartment Decor – Using Spring “Animals”
It’s always fun to add sweet little animals to your home that remind you of spring. Think about:
- Bunnies and rabbits
- Eggs (well, this is an unborn animal… LOL!)
- Chicks, spring birds, and even ducks!
I’ve always struggled using too many of these adorable items. But I’ve found that if I find items that are more stylish instead of cute, and use them with a light hand, I’m a bit more content in my home. (I’m still working on this habit, which might be obvious! 😉 )
Apartment Living Room Spring Decor Ideas
A few additional items you might want to add to your small living room space would be:
- Candles – Spring is still plenty cool to light ALL the candles in your home. Use light fragrances and consider finding your signature scent!
- Candle holders… you can use them for candles, or even moss balls or, again, DIY velvet eggs
- Unusual items, like a wooden cookie mold or double-sided metal molds
- “Leftovers” from Valentine’s, like velvet hearts
PRO-TIP: Another apartment living room spring decor idea is to use mirrors! They are not only pretty, but they make a room look bigger! Take a look at these Anthropologie mirror dupes for some great and affordable ideas!

Such a lovely tour Julie. I adore the touches of green and that cookie mold is adorable!
Hehe… I think the cookie mold may be a fave with readers, just like it is with me. Thank you, Laura!
Happy early spring, Julie! I love your sage wisdom about decorating or should I say not over-decorating. You are so right! I also am following your lead when it comes to using faux flowers, using cutsie spring items, and choosing a signature scent! I’m so glad you concentrated on showing us your lovely spring accent decor. I just love the cookie mold and the eggs in the vignette on your kitchen table. And your candles. Your home looks so fresh and uncluttered and gives a pretty nod to the spring season. Love you friend!
Thank you so much, Yvonne! I’ve had a good mentor… in so many ways! 😉 Love ya right back!
Your living room is so bright and inviting Julie! I love all the homey touches you’ve added – and your Easter egg centerpiece! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your lovely home – I’m inspired! Happy Monday my friend!
Thank you, Barbara… this is the first time I’ve used a real centerpiece in MWA. It was fun and so easy!
Your apartment is so bright, beautiful and chic! I love your spring touches, they’re perfect!
Aw, thanks, Tamara… I think you are the first to ever say MWA looks chic… that is a great compliment, indeed!
I love how fresh and uncluttered your living room and kitchen look for spring, Julie – your vignettes are just lovely! These tips are spot on – I need to share your site with my daughter who is learning how to decorate her first apartment. I think she could learn a lot from it. Happy spring sweet friend!🌷
Oh, please do share with your daughter! I love helping those just starting out, as well as those that are down-sizing later in life! Always fun touring with you, Kate! Can’t wait to see your elegant home!
Julie, your place is lovely, bright and fresh. Of course I had to mention the cookie mold. amazing! Have a wonderful week, hope you’re having good weather!
Yes… I LOVE the cookie mold! It’s very special to me, especially because I was with a dear friend when I found it! 😉
Love how fresh and bright your space looks dressed up for Spring! And thank you for that faux floral tip ! I’m a notorious faux user and your tip means I won’t make a “faux” pas when I put out my faux florals!
Thanks for sharing your amazing space!
Faux pas! You are funny! Thanks, Linda…looking forward to your tour, too!
Julie, your home is so bright and cheerful! I love the pops of color and the overall spring vibe! Great touring with you!
Thanks, Shelley! Always fun touring with you… can’t wait to see your home!
Fresh and airy is the perfect description Julie! Love your spring touches and your cookie mold!
Isn’t that cookie mold special? As soon as I saw it, I picked it up! Only 7 bucks!
The pops of color you added throughout your home are perfect! Everything looks so open, bright, and welcoming! So much fun touring with you. Pinned!
Thank you so much, Anne… for the kinds words and the pin!
Everything looks beautiful, as always, Julie. I love the colors you chose for spring. The bright turquoise pillows and the pretty lavender plant make the space feel so bright and cheery.
Thank you so much, Jen. It’s always a challenge to add different looks for the season, but my grands sure do love it!
Your home is so bright and welcoming Julie. I’m loving the turquoise pillows. That cookie mold speaks to me! Love it. I’m all about the faux flowers and greenery this time of year. So beautiful my friend. Happy Spring!
Yes, that cookie mold is super special in so many ways! Thanks for the kind words!
I love how you’ve turned a small space into such an inviting space with soft colors and decor. Your home looks so welcoming and warm, I think that is what makes any home special. Thanks so much for joining the tour again this season.
Thanks, Marty! I loved being a part of the tour! Hugs!
I love all of your pretty spring touches and that cookie mold is such a cool find! Such a warm and inviting space – perfect for some spring relaxation!
Thanks, Jenn! I’m enjoying all the spring decor, but my grands are enjoying it, too! 😉
The apartment is spring fresh, I love it!
Thanks so much, Josee! Good to hear from you, friend!
Your home is so pretty Julie! I love all your spring vignettes. The tray on your table is perfect for the upcoming season… love, love, love the candles! Thanks for the inspiration and I hope you have a great week!
Thank you, Denise! The tray on the table is so fun to do each season. My grandkids and grand nieces have really enjoyed all the decor, too!
This is so cute, it really feels like spring coming. The eggs with the candles are just gorgeous. Thank you for the idea 🙂
Thanks so much, Mariama. I love the wooden eggs, too! 😉
Your apartment has so many little personal Spring touches that make everything cohesive. That vintage cookie mold is perfection Julie. I always enjoy your home tours because it teaches me you don’t need a big mansion to have home decor style. Love it.
Thanks, Leanna! It was fun to share… now for my first kitchen reveal next week! 😉
Your spring apartment is so bright and cheerful, Julie. I especially love the moss balls and the cookie mold. Thanks for inviting us in. 🙂
Yes, I’m loving those special moss balls!
I absolutely love the idea of virtual house tours! It’s so fun to see how different people decorate their homes for each season. Your apartment living room looks beautiful with all of the spring decor. I especially love the pops of green and floral accents. It’s inspiring me to start adding some spring touches to my own home. My question is, what’s your favorite way to incorporate seasonal decor into your home without breaking the bank?
Thanks for the kind words, Frances, and for the question. I would say that pillow covers are my fave way to up the ante when decorating for any season. Amazon has some lovely covers, and they are super affordable. Also, purchase items that you can use over and over again, and do as many DIYs as possible. 🙂
Look at you all springified! Love what you’ve done this season. Everything looks cozy yet open and airy. That’s hard to do so kudos! Love the cookie mold too (bet everyone does). Fun spring hop. Happy Easter!
Yep… the cookie mold was the fave! LOL! Thanks for the kind words, dear friend!
I loved your tour Julie! It has been so fun to see you decorate your apartment for each season. I am in love with that wooden cookie mold. So special and unique. Did you have the grandbaby yet? Praying for your sweet new grandbaby and your family!
Thanks, Kelly… are you wondering what I’m going to be sharing at the Bloggers’ Best??? 😉 Baby did come! I’ll be announcing it at TTA tomorrow!
Hi Julie! Your place looks so fresh for spring! Love all the little touches of purple. Glad to be touring with you.
Thanks, Lori… I truly enjoyed this tour so much!
So pretty, Julie! I always love seeing what you do with your space. You’re living proof that you don’t have to have a big house to create a beautiful home. 🙂
Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!
Thank you so much, Richella! It’s so dreary here in So Cal… this def brightened my day!
I love your living room, Julie! It looks so fresh and bright. I’ll be featuring it today at Thursday Favorite Things. 🙂
Oh, thank you! What a special blessing on this dreary So Cal day!
Your centerpiece arrangments are really lovely and I love all the pops of green! Happy Spring!
