I don’t know about you, but I am dying for warm sunshine, long walks that don’t involve boots or overcoats, a shiny clean car, and open-toed shoes. Here in Iowa, it isn’t looking anything like Spring. In fact, we have snow in our forecast today!

But even if it’s still gray and gloomy outside, we can infuse a little Springtime into our interiors. In this post, I’ve rounded up some easy ways you can brighten up your home in preparation for the warmer months ahead from some of my favorite Etsy shops.

Mix it up with Pillows

First up is my tried and true favorite – throw pillows. Pillows are such an easy way to bring color and pattern into your space without a huge commitment. I love the idea of having one set of pillows for winter and another for the warmer months. Consider switching out heavy knits and thick velvets for lightweight linen and cotton covers in soft and pretty neutral hues or delicate patterns.

Light & Modern Pottery

I am a bit of a houseplant collector. I have ten just in my living room and am always thinking about what type of plant I’d like to add next. If you’re not great with succulents (like me), try tiny tropicals and begonias. I love finding decorative planters and choosing the perfect plants to pair with them. I’m fond of anything blue and white, as well as vintage cermaics in shades of green and yellow.

By planting interesting pottery in light colors with interesting textures, you get the added boost of the pretty ceramics in combination with the fresh greenery. Or simply swap any heavy or dark pottery on your shelves with simple white forms like the lovely vases I’ve pictured below. Etsy is one of my favorite sources for planters, along with West Elm, and of course, our family garden center, which just opened for the season.

Add Colorful Happy Art

There are so many sources for affordable artwork online, with Etsy and Minted being two of my favorites.  I painted all of the walls in our new house white because I knew I wanted to make artwork a focal point. I have several spots where it’s very easy to rotate the art in and out with the seasons just like I would pillows. If you want to cheer yourself up while we’re waiting for this dreary season to end, you can hang a bright poppy print for a dose of cheerful color.
