IF there’s anything I learned from my mom’s decor style, it was her ability to decorate minimally.  She is a perfect example of not having a ton of things out.  She uses pictures from trips, and a few knick knacks, but she’s so good at keeping her house tidy by only have a few things out on shelves.

For my Spring Decor this year, I decided to “purge” and do minimal decor for the first time. 

Rather than have 55 pictures of my girl on the entry table, I purged it down to ONE photo. 



And… I’m now in LOVE with my minimally decorated entry way. 

Who wouldda thought?

For my Spring decor, I chose yellow.  I’m kind of obsessed with yellow right now.  Not sure where that came from, but boy oh boy, do I LOVE yellow!

Add in some polka dots, and I’m just a little obsession queen!

Thanks to Balsam Hill, I got a Boxwood Wreath for my spring decor, along with $100 ETSY gift card for spring decor shopping. 


When my packages from The Pillow People and Expressions Wall Art arrived, it was an early Mother’s Day!

I ordered a set of 2 pillow slipcovers for my couch from The Pillow People and went BIG and ordered a CUSTOM wood FAMILY RULES sign from Expressions Wall Art.  Both companies were super easy to work with and had my order delivered well before I expected them to arrive! 

I HEART handmade!

The perfect accessories to decorate for Spring! I never buy home decor items, because I always feel like I should use what I have on hand to decorate, so this was the perfect MOTHER’S DAY TREAT for myself!

I added to my Spring decor by painting a wooden “welcome” sign to add to my Balsam Hill Boxwood wreath, and painted a mason jar with my YELLOW inspiration and added polka dots.

 This welcome sign came from Hobby Lobby.  So many fun chipboard words to choose from! 

I love “words” for home decor!




 After using the nailpolish bottle-top to make my circles, I used a brush to fill in the polka dots.

  1. Even thought it is trendy in the blog world to make or buy new decor every year, I like to put a lot of the same things out each year. I love the sense of tradition and comfort those pieces bring each year. My mom did that, even though she is a crafter, and I plan on continuing it!

    Cute choices, btw!

  2. My mom has always decorated with meaningful things that she loves. Simple, rustic, elegant with a little heart – I love that about her home!

  3. Karen M says:

    My mom taught me to decorate with things that are meaningful as well as lovely.

  4. My mom says you can paint anything. So I always look for thing I can improve.

  5. I learned how NOT to decorate from my mom. I love her dearly, and she is good at lots of things, but decorating is not one of them!

  6. Jessica says:

    My mom always shopped the house, rearranging and finding new homes for things. It’s always nice to change things up a bit even if you don’t get anything new!

  7. My mom likes to use color – our tastes aren’t the same, but I love infusing color into decor!

  8. Go with your first instinct!

  9. My mom taught me how to arrange different items in groups and thrift shop for what you need…and even things you maybe didn’t realize you needed (or wanted!).

  10. Heather says:

    Mom always said, “Do what you like, don’t worry what everyone else is doing!”

  11. Deena E. says:

    My mom and I are kind of opposites in most ways, so we disagree on most decorating ways haha!

  13. Katherine says:

  14. My mom, unfortunately, was not a decorator. But she did teach minimalism!

  15. Keep things simple!

  16. My mom was far from a decorator….but she did teach me to always make my bed!!

  17. Buy quality over quantity!

  18. My mom and I seem to have opposing taste when it comes to decor. She is quite traditional whereas I like mixing modern and vintage looks, but still keeping it rather minimal.

  19. My mom loves to include natural elements in her home decor, and that’s something that I’ve really been trying to do a lot more of lately, too! I adore that wreath – SO cute!

  20. My mom has a meaning for almost every accessory in her home. Whether it is a vintage piece from her mom, family pictures, or shells from a beach vacation. I have tried to take her lead, and done the same thing. She is a fabulous designer. Thanks for the giveaway.
    I heart Balsam Hill Boxwood Wreaths :)

  21. One tip I have learned from my mom is that if you like it, make it work. Even if it doesn’t pertain to a certain “style”. And as a side note, I love love love boxwood wreaths but have been too cheap to buy the one I keep slowly cruising by at Target! :)

  22. My mom always tells me that displays look better with odd numbers of items!

  23. nickie says:

    My mother always said let your home reflect your style.

  24. Love how pretty! The yellow is awesome! My mom always told me just do what you feel is best! :)

    I’ve inherited my mom’s minimalistic design aesthetic – a lot of monochrome and subtle touches with occasional pops of color!

  29. ginette4 says:

    I did not get my decorting ideas, she has none what so ever, not sure where I get mine.

  30. LOVE this – yellow is one of my current favorite colors too. Thanks for the update on where the “welcome” message is from – I’ll have to get me one of those!

  31. Melissa says:

    Love all of the sunshine-y colors!

  32. T Michelle Trump says:

    My mom best use what you love and means the most to you when decorating, my mom uses lots of family photos and family memorabilia in her home!

    My mom was a “saver” and reused the same items year after year. They might be in different places, but it was the same basics.

  40. Jennifer Reed says:

    A decorating tip I have taken from my MOM is to pay attention to scents in my home. To keep wonderful smells through candles and diffusers in my home.

  41. My mom always said to follow my grandma’s advice: love color!

  42. All the yellow makes me so happy! I love it. I think the one decorating thing I learned from my mom is to make your house a place that reflects you. My mom’s decorating style is completely different than mine but it reflects her and her style and she is proud of her home.

  43. Ceinwyn R says:

    My mom taught me that decorating well doesn’t have to be expensive

  44. Danielle says:

  46. Jessica Ruggiero says:

    To paint my rooms in bright colors to liven them up!

  48. Paula Michele Hafner says:

    My Mom always decorated for every holiday and change of season. I do the same.

    My mom always had such bright and vibrant colors from pillows to candles to tableware. I have the same kind of colors as she did.

  53. I learned to go crazy with Christmas decorating and that white lights look better than colored on a Christmas tree

  54. That the pictures on the living room wall should be level. Actually – it was making her nutty so she fixed it, but I guess that counts. 😉

  55. Christine says:

    My mom says go with your gut want feels right for you

  56. Stephanie Galbraith says:

    She liked old fashioned, and home made items, I took that from her.

  57. My Mom is wonderful in many ways, but decorating is not one of them. So I have to say, I haven’t taken any tips from her. Other advice from her has been very valuable though.

  58. Peggy Rydzewski says:

    She has always stressed to paint your wall with three colors for balance.

  59. Kimmy Ripley says:

    My mom had a love for black and white and I got that from her. Most of our home has a black and white theme.

    my mom isn’t much of a decorator and neither am i, but we are both trying to learn!

  61. jules m. says:

    my mom loved having pictures of her family on the walls, and not a lot of clutter. I’ve done the same at my home except i do have some art prints as well.

  62. Kayte CookWatts says:

    My mom liked to put family pictures everywhere. She was also not a fan of knick knacks, she liked things to be practical. I definitely feel the same!

  63. Angela Ash says:

    The only decorating tip I can think of right off the bat is the use of plants in the house. I like easy to care for houseplants in different rooms.
