Pastel colors have been the go-to strategy for spring décor since…always, it feels like. But if you’re tired of a home that looks a little too much like J. Crew catalogue, there are other options!

Here are five things to try:

White

Spring isn’t just about Easter, so why should your color scheme this time of year be all about pastels? One classy way to decorate for spring is to go with white as a central color. We like the idea of pairing these ceramic birds with a vase full of white tulips for a quick dining table centerpiece.

Mismatched Vases

Head to your local thrift store and go to the glassware aisle. Chances are you’ll find vases of all shapes and sizes. Pick out a few of your favorites in sea-glass, clear or blue hues. Then, arrange them on your coffee table, mantle or dining room table. Need a little more pizzaz? Add some branches or a few spring flowers!

Umbrellas

Bust out a funky umbrella stand as an ode to rainy days. Try placing it in the entryway or right next to your front door. Or, make your own! Pick up a galvanized flower bucket and follow along with this fun step-by-step from Eeny Meeny and Moe.

Lemons

If you have a festive salad bowl, fill it with lemons to effortlessly brighten your kitchen countertop. For a unique floral display, take slices of lemon and line a clear vase or water pitcher. Then, add some fresh flowers.

Wheatgrass

Yep, you read that right. Pick up some wheatgrass from your local supermarket (the artificial kind works, too). Nestle it in a bright-colored serving dish, bucket, or small votive. This low-maintenance plant perfect fit for spring decor. We like this tablescape by The Inspired Room.
