Doesn't it feel like we were just decorating for Christmas? How is it nearly Spring already? One thing is for sure, it's been a wild and strange winter across the country! Whether you're still buried under a foot of snow, or basking in 80 degree weather, it's time to turn our minds and our homes to Spring!

Spring Home Tour

Today I'm happy to join Marty of A Stroll Thru Life and 30 other home decor bloggers to share our Spring Home Tour home decor inspiration with you! If you hopped over here from Jenn at Clean and Scentsible, a special welcome to you! Jenn lives in the beautiful province of British Columbia in Canada, which is where I grew up and lived until I married my American sweetheart, Mr DIY and we moved south!

How does the tour work?

The tour runs all week long, with new Spring inspiration each day. You'll have access to all the links below, just be aware that they won't all be active until Friday! But you're welcome and encouraged to check back each day.

I've been fluffing and decorating and bringing a fresh look of Spring to our MS home. If you're new here, we moved to MS from TX last May, so this is my first time decorating for Spring in this home. As I mentioned above, I was born and raised in Canada, and have lived in 6 different states since marrying Mr DIY! You can read more about our family and our journey  here.

I will say that moving into a new home in a new state, and having the last two kids leave home (all within a couple months) means this momma has had some nervous energy to burn! Decorating our temporary home has been a great way to stay busy while furthering this little business.

Adding light and airy Spring touches

I try to buy very little new decor for each season, although I'll be honest that a few pieces do make their way into our home (like these adorable bunny mugs from Target that I could not resist!). However, keeping to a budget is important to me, and I try to decorate on a shoestring with items that will last for years and can work in nearly every room in whatever home we're living in!

Spring in the main bedroom

I don't always decorate the bedrooms for Spring, but in this home I have about 1000 sf less to decorate, so it was inevitable 😉

You'll notice there is only one bunny in here, and I'll be sharing a tutorial for this easy and inexpensive double-sided bunny pillow in a few days.

Instead, I chose to interpret Spring in our main bedroom by using light and airy bedding, a pretty floral quilt, vintage ironstone plates on the wall, and vases filled with the most realistic looking tulips.

I've already invested in pretty bedding and curtains, and I just change the way I make the bed to get different looks for the season. This soft ruffled bedspread is gorgeous, a nice light weight that makes such a great base for every season! At Christmas this bedroom became a romantic blue and white haven, with a decorated tree. I'm a huge fan of blue and white, all shades, but for the bedroom I am really drawn to a light blue (and toile patterns are my favorite!). My King size quilt and shams by Laura Ashley is still less than $100 for the set on Amazon!

The faux French grainsack bolster pillow is one I made for just a couple bucks from some common household items that you would probably donate! You need to check out the tutorial!

Shop my room

Simply changing a few things in our bedroom has motivated me to get back to making our bed daily! When I walk into this space, I smile and breathe a big sigh because it's so calming!

Spring in the guest bedroom

When our daughter is visiting from University, this is her room, but the rest of the year it's mine to play with! I recently shared the tutorial for the cottage style wood shelf Mr DIY and I built for this space. It's more decorating real estate!

I was pleasantly surprised to find pretty Easter bonnets at Dollar Tree and this one, with the pink and blue ribbon tied around it, inspired the colors in this room. I added a large stained floral platter that I saved from the thrift store, as well as more white ironstone from my collection.

Above the bed is this large cottage sign that I made. Be on the lookout for that tutorial (plus a free printable) soon!

More light and airy bedding makes this tiny room feel bigger but somehow extra cozy at the same time!

I painted my daughter's dresser (with her blessing!) this beautiful cottage green, and simply propped some old shutters on top, along with a mirror. You can read all about this dresser makeover HERE.

My DIY Anthropologie Minka vase dupe is filled with blush pink peonies for a simple yet stunning touch of Spring. You can see my original Anthro textured pot dupe tutorial here, this one is round two, which you can find here! I found a way to make it look even more like the real thing for so much less!

This is where I come to sleep when Mr DIY's snoring keeps me awake 😉

  2. Oh, Cindy! I adore both bedrooms, but the blue and white sings to me. It's just so fresh and romantic!

  3. The blue and white in your bedroom is so wonderfully light and bright Cindy - and the bedding is so soft and beautiful! And the colors in the other bedroom are ideal for spring decorating. I'll be on the lookout for the DIY for that adorable bunny pillow!

  4. Your gorgeous bedrooms have truly inspired me. I LOVE that green dresser!

  5. Moving and decorating a new home is alwlays fun and you have done an outstanding job on both bedrooms. I love both and I agree with others, the blue and white is stunning and that green dresser is a keeper. Thanks for joining the tour again this season.

  6. What a lovely idea to add touches of Spring to your bedrooms! And good luck with your move to your new house!

  7. Such pretty bedrooms! I always tend to decorate in there last but it really is nice to have a cozy, relaxing space for ourselves! Happy Spring!

  8. Cindy, I love your bedrooms! Now I want to freshen mine up! All your bedding looks so fluffy - and yes, light and airy! You must feel like you're sleeping on a cloud! Beautiful tour!

  12. I'm so glad you shared bedrooms in your spring tour, because I'm really needing some spring inspiration there! By the way your Anthropologie look-a-like vase is super cute!

  13. I love your idea of getting things that will work in any room in your home. Mixing things around keeps it fun and new looking. Your bedrooms are amazing and I could crawl right up in any of those beds and not want to leave. I think my favorite part is that no matter what room you're in, they each seem special, inviting and full of spring details. Love all that you do. Happy Spring!

  14. Hi Cindy! It is so fun to see how you are decorating your new space for Spring! So lovely my friend and so impressed by how fast you were able to make it feel like home!
