Hey Friends! Anyone else ready for warmer weather? This year I have found myself craving all things spring earlier than usual. Maybe it’s because we have a winter that seemingly won’t end or because I’m trapped inside the house with a toddler during weeks of lousy weather! Either way, I feel the need to add some elements of springtime in my home to get me through this season. If I decorate for spring, it will come, right?!
We’ve been in our temporary home for almost two years now, and I still haven’t taken the time to decorate. Maybe it’s because I’m in denial of how long our Farmhouse build journey is taking (why decorate a temporary living situation?!), or it’s because I had a baby shortly after we moved in. I think it’s a little of both. But, I feel the need to make our house a little homier because, much to my disliking, we’re going to be here awhile.

In preparation for some big life changes coming in April (I’ll disclose details as we get closer), I’m getting ready to make our temporary house a home by adding a little spring cheer. Below are decor items that will not only add a little pop of color and utility into your home (because who doesn’t love pretty and functional?!), but also have clean lines and a modern vintage feel, so it flows into each season beautifully. I hope you find this farmhouse spring decor guide useful, and cheers to warmer weather coming your way soon!

1. Six Foot Faux Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree – I’ll let you in on a little secret, this wife of a farmer hates indoor house plants. Shhh! Rest assured, I am a plant lady – just outside! I absolutely love love love to work in the garden, but I have never liked bringing dirt into my home. I live on a working farm; enough dirt gets tracked in by my family and dogs that I don’t want to intentionally bring any more inside. With that said, I love the look of house plants, so I’m trying out this lush and lifelike, six-foot fiddle leaf fig tree in our home.

5. Faux Forsythia Stem from Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia – If you can’t bring fresh blooming branches into your home (because this winter won’t end), add pops of color with these beautiful artificial forsythia plant stems that bring long-lasting style to any room. I would get a few stems and display in these vases. Shop similar items: Faux Eucalyptus Silk Leaf Stems, Yellow Forsythia Spray, Lamb’s Ear Leaf Spray.
6. We Are the Gardeners Book – This year our daughter will be able to “help” in the garden. She is almost 21 months old and already loves to play in the dirt and water so I can’t wait until we can get in the garden together this spring.

11. Joanna Gaines for Anthropologie Embroidered Sadie Pillow – I have sort of an eclectic style. I like to call my style vintage classic farmhouse with a western-boho twist.
