Spring Entryway Decor

Happy first day of spring!!!  When changing my home decorations to reflect the seasons, the first space that I like to update is my entryway.  It's the first area that guests see when they visit your home, and I like for this area to feel warm & welcoming. 

Nothing quite says "Spring" like festive flowers & foliage, and there's no better way to usher in the new season than with a fresh update to your entryway decor.

Here's what my entryway currently looks like.......


gallery wall

Since we live in a condo, I have to deal with an elevator in our foyer.  Luckily, we have a private entry {meaning that we don't share a hallway} and we're the only unit on this floor.  We have extra high ceilings {I think they're 14 feet}, so I thought a tall gallery wall featuring black & white photos would be striking in this space.


I picked up these pussy willows from Whole Foods almost 2 weeks ago!  I've amazed at how long they've lasted.  If you're lucky enough to live in an area where you have pussy willows or cherry blossoms {anything that really signifies spring}, you should take advantage of it by clipping a few branches.  Even plain ol' maple leaf branches with budding leaves look glamorous sitting in a vase!


I also chose two different colors of mums for this display.  I love them because they're cheap and last forever if you change the water every few days.  I arranged them in small vases of various heights around some of my favorite silver frames.



All of the frames for the gallery wall were purchased from Pottery Barn, and the 'Boujour" print I found on Etsy.


For the bottom shelf, I wanted to continue the 'foliage theme' so I filled an old vintage wooden bowl with moss.


To give the shelf a bit of color, I used a couple pastel colored coffee table books to boost up my vintage looking urn.


I didn't need to purchase anything new to complete this look {except for the pussy willows + flowers}.  I mixed and matched items that I already had from around my house to create this spring display.  I love how it turned out; it's simple but it really wakes up this space! 


How do you update your home for the different seasons?

  2. So cute! I love the mix of white, cream, silver, and light pink! I was not blessed with a decorator's eye, so changing decor to me just means fresh flowers this time of year!

    1. It's from West Elm - purchased maybe 6 months ago so it should still be there :)
