Celebrate a new season with effortless Spring decorating touches on a budget!
Spring is a delightful time to refresh your heart, your mind and your home. To usher this fresh season into my humble abode, I wanted everything to feel light and airy. I kept it really simple by using pieces that I already had. Come see how to create a beautiful space, using minimal items, with effortless Spring decorating touches on a budget!
Thrift Store Finds for Spring
I’m so happy to welcome you into my home! Spring is my favorite season and, after the long winter we had here in the tundra, it felt extra amazing to pull out all of my Spring decor and floral stems.
I’ve incorporated many of my beloved vintage treasures such as milk glass and transferware and paired them with colorful books, hankies, and linens. Decorating your home for the seasons, especially Spring, is special.
The ideas that I’m showing you today are all super easy and budget-friendly Spring decor. Come along as I share my home all decorated for Spring!

Effortless Spring Decorating Ideas on a Budget
Spring Decorating in the Entry Way
Let’s start this tour in the entry.
As you come in the front door, you are greeted by a Spring vignette in blues and greens. This shelf may be small but it is mighty when it comes to a small space. The pretty mirror is very old. I found it at the thrift store last year for just $5!
The frame around the floral needlework is almost the exact same color as the mirror, making it feel like one cohesive space.
Spring Mantel Decor
Moving to the living room, we’ll start at the fireplace.
I kept the mantel very simple this season. The left side is adorned with Spring florals and the cloche DIY that I created a few weeks ago. I paired the cloche with a vintage watercolor painting that I found at the thrift store, some vintage books and a brown transferware pitcher.
The antique mirror, which is almost 100 years old, ties in with the mirror in the entry. The mantel mirror was made by hand by my husband’s late grandfather. Isn’t that incredible?!
I will say that this is more brown than I’ve ever used for Spring but for some reason it just goes. I think, paired with the bright whites and delicate florals, it all blends nicely together and also gives a little more contrast rather than having everything be white.
Spring Decorating with Floral Touches
On the painted credenza underneath the windows, I created a Spring vignette using some of my very favorite vintage pieces. All of the items that you see in this display are secondhand from either thrift stores or antique shops.
I didn’t pay more than $10 for any one of them, which just goes to show that you can create a beautiful seasonal display for an affordable price. That’s the whole point of effortless Spring decorating touches on a budget, after all!
For the base of this vignette, I placed a vintage eyelet table runner in a pretty white color. The neutral backdrop allows me to use more color and texture in the display itself.
In the center, I placed some vintage books in blues and greens paired with a vintage hanky. The hanky has Tulips on it, helping to tie it in with the banana stand.
The bright blue spritzer is one of favorites, which is why I prominently displayed it. The milky blue color is just stunning. I’ve never come across anything quite like it since!
On the right side of the display, you will see a stack of vintage floral plates, another brown transferware pitcher and my ‘new’ thrifted brass lamp.
I placed a vintage blue book under the lamp to give it the same height as the left side. Everyone prefers different things, but when I create vignettes, symmetry is my best friend 🙂
In order to be able to see out the windows, I need to keep the height on this shelf to a minimum. So, by adding small books that stand up-right and vertical items such as pitchers, it still draws your eyes up without blocking the view.
This Spring vignette has all of the same colors and textures as the mantel and the entry, creating a home that feels united.
Wall Decor for Spring Decorating
On the living room wall shelf, I introduced a splash of pink! I’m typically not drawn to decorating with pink, but when I found this embroidered hanky at the thrift store a few weeks ago, I knew I at least had to try.
You will still see pops of blue and green in this display to tie in with the rest of the house but I think the pink is so fun and totally works.
I kept this shelf pretty minimal, using some milk glass, white bunnies and vintage blue jars.
The flowering stem brings height to the shelf as a whole and the pink Tulip plates tie in with the hanky.
The last bit of the living room is the picture rail.
Each of these art pieces have been found secondhand and I just think they all look so striking together! Some are more moody while others are bright but the beauty of a picture rail is that it doesn’t matter!
They pair so well with the other floral decor that is displayed around the living room.
Spring Decorating in the Kitchen
You guys, all I did in the kitchen for Spring was place this vintage hanky in one of my copper creamers. If this isn’t the definition of minimal then I don’t know what is!
This truly is such a simple decor piece but it makes me so happy. The blue flowers on the hanky ties in with the rest of the rooms, giving my open floor plan home lots of cohesion. After all, effortless Spring decorating touches on a budget is all about doing what you love!
You will find out more about these hanky’s in detail in an upcoming Thrifted Goodies post. For now, I love the pop of Spring that it brings to my kitchen.
Spring Decorating in the Hall Bath
As I’ve stated before, I love to decorate the hall bath for the seasons. This is the bathroom that guests use when they come over so I like to infuse it with vintage cheer.
On the small shelf above the toilet, I created this little vignette using a vintage book, a milk glass bowl and another embroidered hanky. I had the cute bunny sitting there for Easter!
On the wall shelf in the bathroom, I created a little Spring scene with blues and whites.
Using a vintage platter as the backdrop, I placed coordinating blue and white pieces around it. This is easy and budget-friendly Spring decor at it’s finest!
The vintage enamel pitcher is one of my favorite pieces to use during the Spring and Summer months. These flowers look especially beautiful in it…they look SO realistic, like they were just picked from a wildflower field!
You truly don’t need to do much in a space to transform it and make it feel beautiful. By simply adding a few coordinating items in Spring colors paired with some florals, you can create a charming display for the season. It’s truly all about easy and budget-friendly Spring decor!
Spring Bedroom Decor
The last little area of the tour is in my bedroom.
All I did for Spring decor was place my vintage toile tray in the back and surrounded it with the things in life I love the most.
Underneath, on my dresser, I placed my very favorite transferware pitcher and filled it with eucalyptus stems. I love how calming my bedroom feels with the use of green against the blue walls.
