With the arrival of spring comes a renewed sense of energy and joy, and what better way to celebrate the season than by incorporating playful and charming seasonal touches into your home decor?

Spring decor brings the arrival of fresh florals and of course, bushels of bunnies. 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, according to the Chinese zodiac, making it an especially auspicious time to add the adorable creatures to your interior design.

Sprucing up your space with bunnies and florals is a whimsical way to create a fun and fresh springtime atmosphere in any room. Endless possibilities exist for incorporating them into your decor, from figurines and wall art to textiles and dinnerware. Here are some creative and stylish ways to bring a touch of springtime charm to your home:

There’s a bunny for every style

Bunnies as decor are available in all forms. In varying sizes, they range from elegant white ceramic, to detailed and delicate bronze, to whimsical and wooden. No matter your style, I believe there is a bunny to match.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking anything will do for spring decor. Take your time and find pieces that resonate with you. Those bunnies and eggs that you display will look a lot more natural and “at home” in your space if they stick with the style to which you gravitate.

Once you find a bunny (or two) you love, it’s time to display it. If you are looking to create a sweet Easter or spring vignette with your bunny as the shining star, start by placing a large bunny in the center and add smaller items around it, such as candles, vases of flowers or even decorative eggs. You also can use bunny shaped objects, such as ceramic bowls or candle holders, to add a playful touch to your display.

Make bunnies the center of your table

Spring can bring a dizzying array of get-togethers, and the table is a fun place to set the scene for all the festivities during the upcoming months. For an effortless springtime table, keep a main centerpiece and rotate decor and each place setting around it. The centerpiece can be as simple or elaborate as you like, and you can add different elements to it as the season progresses.

On decorating for Easter and spring

You don’t have to go overboard with decor. A few new stems and a bunny or two can go a long way.

Consider swapping out darker, heavier textiles, like throws and throw pillows, for lighter and brighter options, or exchanging a few pieces of art on the wall with something botanical and full of life.

Don’t leave out the outdoors.

Adding seasonal touches to your patio or outdoor living space is a great way to encourage use of the space as the days get longer and warmer. New outdoor furniture might be in order, or maybe a few new outdoor pillows will do.

Make an impact with tropical florals

Tulips are one of the most beloved flowers of spring, with their vibrant colors and delicate petals. These versatile blooms can be as centerpieces and bouquets, as well as wreaths and garlands.

Incorporating bold tropical stems with delicate traditional florals is a great way to add dimension and interest to your arrangements.
