A few weeks from today will mark our 3rd year in our first home. To say that I’m grateful for this blessing would be an understatement. Our old apartment was minuscule compared to our home now which means we have a lot of empty rooms. We’ve slowly started to add more pieces to our home, and I always look forward to decorating for different seasons. With over a month into Spring and just under 5% of my spring-cleaning completed, I wanted to come here and share some ways that you can spruce up your living room for spring.
Spruce Up Your Living Room For Spring
This post in collaboration with Wazo Furniture but all opinions are my own.
Our living room is the first thing you notice when you walk into our home, and for the first two years, we haven’t done anything with it. It’s been an empty room where we put the Christmas tree and where we open birthday presents. I wanted to focus on the living room this year, and I’ve been given total design freedom because Demo has laid claim to the yard. Below are my five spruce up ideas for spring.
Add a new color to your walls.
A fresh coat of paint is a quick way to change up the look of any space. Demo doesn’t like to paint. But after living here for three years, I think the living room could use a new coat of paint. He’s giving me the ok to paint, and now I’m facing this HUGE dilemma of choosing the paint color. We get a lot of light in the living room so I think white or light gray would work great with the look that I have in mind.
New window treatments.
I’m thinking pink or a beautiful yellow curtain to keep up with the spring theme. We still have the same old curtains that the previous homeowners left behind three years ago. To be fair, when we moved into our home I was five months pregnant, and the LAST thing on my mind was window treatments. After the baby had come, I still didn’t give it much thought but now (3 years later!!) we need to update! I see a visit to IKEA in the near future.
If you can’t paint your walls, the next best thing is to add some lovely spring wall decor. One of my goals this year is to add family portraits around the house. We currently have ZERO!! I’ve been taking lots of pictures, so I’m sure I will have more than enough to create a beautiful wall dedicated to family pictures in our living room. There are so many fun ways to jazz up your wall, and you can change the wall decor around to match different seasons.
For a fun and an inexpensive way to decorate your living room for spring, try adding or replacing your area rug. I’m not a big fan of our current floors but replacing them right now is out of our budget. The fun part is searching for the perfect area rug; the not so fun part is narrowing it down to just ONE after falling in love with 20 different rugs. Le Struggle is real!
Get New Furniture (Wazo Furniture)
A fun way to spruce up your living room for spring is by getting new furniture.
About the Landon Cream Sofa:
I recently got the pleasure of reviewing a gorgeous sofa from the company Wazo Furniture that is based here in Montreal. We’ve been talking about getting a new sofa for the first floor so imagine how excited I was when I was offered the Landon Cream Sofa for reviewing. The Landon Cream Sofa (sold out) has a classic yet, elegant look about it. I feel so fancy just lounging on the couch. It’s a three seater, but all four of us can sit on it comfortably. Because the store is local-ish (I’m about 45 minutes outside of Montreal), the delivery was extremely fast. I still can’t get over how beautiful that sofa is. As soon as you walk into my house, its the first thing you see.
The specific sofa that I received is currently on sale for 895.00 CAD while supplies last. Keep in mind that prices are subject to changes. It’s a fabric sofa that is sturdy but stylish. Its cream color makes it versatile with any decor. I’m using the couch as my primary focus for decorating the living room.

Well… with Spring being here… I think it is time for me to lighten up my red/black/white living room. i am thinking about taking out the red and changing it up with adding hints of purple or teal to lighten it up a bit… thanks for the ideas… stay blessed Queen!
Marielle Altenor says
I love the color teal! Have fun decorating your space!
Neely Moldovan says
I love the pops of color. I really want to get some new throw pillows and blankets for spring.
At my last apartment, I had an accent wall. It was turquoise and the other walls in the living room were white. It made the place look so much fancier! I LOVED it! When we finally settle down into our permanent home, I definitely want to consider an accent wall again!
It is fun to find the perfect rug, pillow or art piece to bring new life to a room. Always amazing what a difference just adding something simple like any of these items to a room makes it come alive. Besides it just makes me happy.
I could t agree with you more. The minute the tree goes down the more empty my house feels. I would love to add some new pieces of furniture to my house. I’ll have to look into this company.
Hey! Awesome! Was wondering if you still had that painting. 😀
Nice post too, by the way!
Lisa Favre says

Super nice ideas I love to change the decor adding new stuff too. Besides going shopping is a great idea too =)
Michelle Waller says
These are such cute and gorgeous ideas for brightening up your living room. I just love those curtains.
I love the couch you chose! It is very chic, and it would jazz up any space. I would find some cute throw pillows with a floral pattern on them and a spring-themed throw onto the couch we have in our home to bring spring into our home. I would also have some springtime blooms around our main floor.
Shannon Gurnee says
These are definitely some great ways to spruce up your living room for spring! I’m getting into the cleaning mode in our house.

I wish that I could find some pretty curtains for our living room. When we moved, I didn’t put any curtains up in our rental.

Annemarie LeBlanc says
I like your new sofa. It could sit me and my grandchildren comfortably. Thanks for the tips to make my living room spring ready! I am definitely going to add a pop of color here and there.
David Elliott says
I love the art here. It is very beautiful. It brings a color and a texture to the room that didn’t exist without it. Will definitely have to think about how I want to change things up for the spring.
These are great tips. I also like to rotate my furniture from time to time to give it a different look.
