I'm Amanda and I’m passionate about creating a well loved and well lived in home for my family and I I'd love to help you do the same!
Spring always brings such a burst of energy with it! As the days get longer and the air freshens, I’m always inspired to throw open the doors and windows and prepare the house for the warmer months ahead! Here are 5 inexpensive and simple spring home decor tips!
The first thing I do in the spring is a big clean and purge! Out with the old and in with the new! I let the fresh air in and get rid of clutter, winter gear and lots of dust bunnies lol!
Usually, I’ve gone through and organized the house in January, but you can’t really deep clean when it’s freezing outside! So I like to do a thorough cleaning and tackle any decluttering that’s left over from the New Year!
It might sound overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! Look for my guide to cleaning your entire house room by room coming soon!
Green Tip: I’ve switched to non-toxic essential oil cleaning products in our house for kitchen & household cleaning, laundry, plant care, personal care etc.. So no nasty chemicals during our spring cleaning!!

Bringing the outside in is my favourite inexpensive decor trick for all seasons! In the Spring, I like to add greens and natural elements to the house in a variety of ways!
Whether you are a newbie indoor gardener or a seasoned plant Mama or Papa, Spring is a great time to give your houseplants some TLC and welcome a few new additions to your home!
Houseplants are actually good for your health! They release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, which can purify the air and eliminate harmful toxins! Plants can also reduce stress levels and boost your mood!
I always love having fresh flowers in the house, but especially in the spring. We have long winters here and having fresh blooms inside makes it feel like spring is arriving just a little earlier!
My favourites are tulips, daffodils, and lilies! In summer I crave peonies, hydrangea and lilac!
As much as I love all my real live plants and blooms, sometimes it’s easier and less expensive to go faux! I like to have a mix of faux and real plants and greens! If you go faux, you can get plants that don’t grow locally (for example I love cherry blossoms, but they don’t grow here!) It can be cost-effective to have faux plants/stems if you reuse them each season or keep them for years! And best of all, no maintenance required a.k.a you can’t kill them lol!!
Can you tell which of the plants in the photo above are real and which are faux?!
Think outside the box! I added fresh green wedding garland to our mudroom window, because why should beautiful garlands only be used at Christmas time?!
These quick and easy Spring home decor ideas mostly use what you already have in your home, but can make a big difference!
Switch out all the chunky knit and faux fur blankets & pillows for lighter fabrics and prints! It immediately makes the room feel fresh!
I’m a sucker for pinks and pastels at this time of year! Mix soft colours in with your neutrals to freshen up your colour palette!
Hot tip: By rotating a few of my favourite pillow shams etc.. in and out through the seasons I don’t feel like I need to buy new things all the time!
I do the same things with my bookshelves or any open shelving in the house. I rotate a few seasonally appropriate pieces in and put away the darker, heavier items I prefer in the winter!

I like to switch up my art seasonally. It’s easy to do, inexpensive and it gives a whole new feel to each space!
I found these frames and some of the cute prints from Opposite Wall and mixed in family photos and a few art pieces collected from the UK on visits!
I love finally being able to circulate fresh air through the house in the Spring. And I switch up my essential oil diffuser blends at this time of year to incorporate more citrus and floral scents after the woodsy and spicy scents I prefer at Christmas and over the winter!
