Winter will be wrapping up soon and if you’re looking to switch things up, we have several ideas for how to have a farmhouse spring style in your home. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to invest tons of money to pull off the popular farmhouse look. Check out our practical tips that you can implement in your home without breaking the bank.
How to Have a Farmhouse Spring Style in Your Home
The farmhouse theme is filled with all things rustic, neutral-toned, and evergreen, all with a slight country twist. This makes decorating so much fun and simple to do. For most of the ideas below, you can find items at a local thrift store, Dollar Store, yard sale, or in your craft stash. Be sure to go the thrift route first before investing in buying things brand new.
Update your home with farmhouse-themed colors.
You don’t necessarily have to change the paint colors on your wall or rip up your carpet. Instead, add farmhouse-style colors in other ways such as adding throw pillows, rugs, blankets and adding decor. The most common colors with the farmhouse style are white, beige, and gray. There are many different shades of these colors that can take the color palette from snow white to a dark gray that almost looks black or even a dark navy blue.
When choosing to switch to a farmhouse theme, it’s a great idea to start with your color palette first. Decide on the primary colors you’d like to use. Then, choose a few offsetting colors that you can use in accent decor.
Add a fresh spring wreath to your front (and back) door.
Welcome spring in farmhouse style by updating the wreath on your door. Nothing says farmhouse quite like a grapevine wreath that’s filled with faux greenery such as eucalyptus, lamb’s ear, boxwood, or lavender sprigs. You can also go for a neutral wreath using large cream colored wood beads or a wood panel wreath with your initials.
Use faux spring flowers with rustic pots for easy table decor.
Quickly (and easily) add a farmhouse touch to any table in your home using faux spring flowers and different types of rustic pots. Tin pots and buckets from Dollar Tree, mason jars painted white, or antique canisters are perfect ideas for showcasing a bouquet of spring flowers. If you’re wondering which flowers scream farmhouse, you can’t go wrong with these:
Switch up your wall decor.
Speaking of flowers, they aren’t only for tables. When it comes to the farmhouse look, you can place them in small mason jars and put them up on your wall or add a few fresh ones in glass vases with water. Another way to decorate your wall for this theme is to add chalkboard decor. You can paint the glass portion of a picture frame and then write a spring greeting on it. This is something that can be reused for each season.
If you want to add another farmhouse touch, go for printable pictures of watercolor flowers, apothecary labels, or wildlife art. These can be printed on white or cream-colored cardstock and hung as is or framed.
Switch out your lighting.
Since white and bright are primary colors for decorating in farmhouse fashion, update your light fixtures with lighter shades. You can also increase the brightness of lighting in a room by swapping out your curtains for sheers. This will allow the most sun to shine in and create a brighter room.
Incorporate items you already have in your home.
Think wooden spoons and rolling pins, wooden and wire baskets, wicker furniture, white candles, and the like. If you don’t have these in your home already, you can find them at Dollar Tree. If you have extra jars, you can also paint those and create a rustic finish to use.
As you can see, creating a farmhouse spring style in your home doesn’t have to be expensive or overwhelming. Use our tips and suggestions for creating an atmosphere that’s catered to your unique style. And the best part about it is a lot of these items and can reused and recycled for other seasons and styles. It’s a win-win!
