Welcome to my first official spring decorating post this year! I’ve been a little quiet on the blog the last few weeks, but I’m so happy to be back sharing my living room spring decor with you!

Blue and white chinoiserie is what you’ll find, as usual, and if you remember my spring inspiration post, I shared a peek at some of the pieces I’m using this season.

If you’ve been around for a while, then you know that blue and white has become a reoccurring color palette throughout our home over the years.

You also might notice a sneak peek of our hallway makeover in the image above – we’re almost at the finish line with that project and I can’t wait to share the reveal soon!

Does anything else look different in here to you? I bought these simple and elegant chandelier lamp shades from Amazon (I make a small commission on Amazon purchases) to dress up our light fixtures and give them a more classic, timeless look.

I love the new look so much! I recently added similar ones to my home office chandelier as well – you can tour the full room reveal if you haven’t seen it yet.



Gorgeous living room spring decor and bookshelves dressed in a collection of blue and white ginger jars, collared books, coral sculptures and objects, styled with a curated look.

When it comes to styling our bookshelves, you’ll typically find my favorite pieces that are my go-to accessories.

Here is what I use to decorate our bookshelves:

  • Ginger jars, both solid and patterned
  • Coral sculptures
  • Agate bookends
  • Decorative boxes
  • Bowls in various sizes
  • Small planters/containers
  • Books in different sizes
  • Pretty objects to help create visual interest
  • Art, either styled on these shelves or hanging on the walls

I wanted a collected, monochromatic look on our bookshelves this spring, so I used some of those favorite accessories listed above, and added some gorgeous new pieces as well.

My latest addition to my ginger jar collection are two sets of these gorgeous blue ginger jars from Lo Home in serenity blue…I always love to use Lauren’s gorgeous ginger jars!

This newest color from her collection makes my heart skip a beat!

I also decided it was time to update the artwork flanking our bookshelves, and I found these gorgeous modern digital prints (I especially love the Matisse print on the bottom right) from Etsy – affordable, gorgeous and we have a new look in minutes.

I always use books to style vignettes throughout our home, and I wanted my books to also play up the monochromatic look I was after.

Some of these books are from House of Elements and others I covered myself in coordinating blue printed paper in varying hues – such a simple DIY!

A beautiful collection of ginger jars, decorative books, coral sculptures, bookends and decorative boxes, bowls and planters styled on builtin bookshelves in shades of blue and white is an elegant take on spring decorating.

Many of you know by now how much I covet gorgeous pillows and I always love to partner each season with Arianna Belle, who has the most jaw-dropping collection!

I wanted to pair soft, pretty florals with contrasting stripes along with my existing animal print pillows from my Christmas living room.

I just love how they complement my blue and white ginger jar collection styled behind them, aren’t they so beautiful together?

Changing out your pillows is always a simple way to create living room spring decor that makes a beautiful statement.

This spring season, I ordered five bunches of these faux hydrangeas in the softest light blue and just love the color so much.

I arranged one bunch (made up of twelve stems) with my stunning Sanibel planter from Cailini Coastal, one of my favorite shops ever!

I use faux florals almost every season and have been for years. I love real flowers of course, but faux are always so easy no matter what.

It’s a small initial investment, but it’s so worth it for gorgeous arrangements that last forever.

I made this faux orchid arrangement with two of these faux orchids stems and just can’t believe how real and beautiful they look.

This was my first attempt at a DIY faux orchid arrangement. I think it turned out ok… looking at my photos, I pushed the stems down too far into the pot and should have let the flowers cascade down more, but that’s an easy fix!
