It’s doesn’t feel or look like we’re nearing the end of Winter and are transitioning into greeting Spring, but alas, it is that time of year! Spring decorating means a lot of things to a lot of people. For some that has an Easter flair to it, for others it’s all about the floral. Whatever spring decor looks like to you, there’s a lot to be inspired by and I’m going to show you today where I ended up in my own Spring mantel decorating. Bohemian vibes in an airy, colorful way.
Pretty and Airy Teal Bohemian Spring Mantel
The Amy Dowling of My Life From Home invited bloggers within the community to come together and collectively share our Spring specific decorated mantels. Of course I was on board for that! I love sharing my style of decorating, especially when it’s something as special as welcoming a new season. If you’re new here, hello! My name is Corinna and you’re at A Designer At Home where I share decorating tips and inspiration for the boho abode.
My fireplace mantel is not attached to a functioning fireplace. It’s vintage and necessary because there is no fireplace in my house and I crave architectural interest. Teal is my favorite color and I love to have a burst of it in every room. For the living room (and in the future, for whatever room it may move to) that’s the fireplace mantel.
I’m a maximalist decorator but I tend to tone down holiday or seasonal decor because I already change things around enough. The additional excuse that we’re headed to a new season is too much to add to this Decorating ADD train. But I do enjoy welcoming in new seasons by giving them a nod in subtle ways.
How To Decorate Spring Subtly:
Switching Out Textiles
Bringing In More Light
Because our son is quite young, we still do a lot of interactive play on the floor. To make that more enjoyable experience, I keep poufs, pillows and cushions handy for sitting on. And while I’m a textile junkie, especially fond of rugs and layering them, I do keep a bit of bare floor space because matchbox cars race especially fast on them.
Previously I had deep maroon colored tassels on either side of the mantel, But I wanted to brighten things up and add an element of airiness with the knotted garland. I actually salvaged this off of the hammock I had last summer after my foot when through the thing and rendered it useless. Le sigh. It was a beautiful hammock. But it’s beauty lives on by embellishing my mantel. Also, in the name of airiness, I replaced the hamsa with a thrifted mirror.
I hope this post gave you some interesting ideas for decorating space of your own. Remember to tag those Instagram posts with #showmeyourboho so I can peek and feature you! But ?I shan’t expect you to rely on my ideas alone, here are loads more Spring inspired Mantels decorated for the season.
