Do you struggle to choose a spring color palette for your home decor and decorating? I hope this post helps you and takes the overwhelm away!
When I was growing up my mom and grandma made all of my and my sister’s Easter dresses (and just about everything else). My family were great seamstresses. For some reason, I always remember having navy blue with white polka dot dresses with big white collars and red ribbons for Easter dresses.
So while everyone is over here using pastel pink and blue everywhere, I am thinking navy, white polka dots, and red or hot pink for spring. You can probably guess that it has been a struggle for me to find a happy mainstream spring color palette. LOL, I think I have finally found my groove with it. Though I am thankful because doing what everyone else does is not my schtick.
I love joining up with blogger friends and sharing these fun spring ideas. Today my friends and I have some amazing spring inspo to share with you. If you are here from Rebecca’s Beautiful Spring entryway blog post then Welcome, and thank you for being here!
You will also find our other friend’s spring inspo at the bottom of this post, I have linked so much spring inspiration goodness for you to look at!
But first, I want to show you some fun color combos that I love for spring and how I am using them in my Home Decor!
Spring Color Inspiration
This is my home’s main color palette. Deep green, blue and white, black, and cream or beige. There is no mistaking that it’s my house when you walk through the door. My Main walls and trim throughout are cream (Casablanca by Sherwin Wiliams). I wanted a main color that would act as a supporting role to my main color palette that I am showing you here. Chateau Chic is the name of my Cabinet Painting Business.
Mixing Bright Spring colors with my main palette
You might think that this color palette limits me from adding other colors, but I assure you it does not. I could add this spring color palette easily, the pinks, oranges, and yellows pop off of the green and darker colors like an old master’s oil painting.
I recently did this Easy European Farmhouse Tablescape for spring, and it fits perfectly with my color palette. Even those deep chocolate brown muffins fit in, though they didn’t last long! I added a deep raspberry-colored bunny to the shelves with a vintage bunny print in a copper frame to add some spring to the open shelves.
My point in this is that if you are afraid you would be limited in doing fun things if you use colors to decorate with or that everything would be dark and dreary, I promise it can be done!
Nature at it’s best color palette
Here is another fun color palette that I am in love with, and I use all of these colors in my decor with my main color palette. You cannot lock yourself in a box! There are so many fun ways to add color that aren’t obnoxious!
I love nature colors and landscape art! They inspire me and I love to use this color palette in my spring decor. Chartreuse, french blue, boxwood green, dove white, and of course earth brown. You can add them with art, pillows, fun tablescapes, and side tables. I want to jump into this picture and put my feet in the water and lay back in the soft grass! It’s my dream home! A little cottage tucked away in the woods by a stream and flowering trees! I could easily go off the grid and live here happily!
I always incorporate copper, gold, and silver metals into my color palette. I don’t think you can go wrong with vintage metals and nature colors. They ground the colors and pull them together.
I made this Elegant DIY Copper Pot Hanger and I use it to display my blue and white teacups. I have hung flower arrangements from it as well on champagne gold hooks and it all flows together like it’s been there for 100 years!

More Spring Color Ideas
I haven’t gotten around to using these color palettes yet but I am in the near future, but I thought you might like a few more out of the box spring color palette ideas!
Daffodils are my favorite thing to see in the month of March and April and am planning a gorgeous daffodil tablescape for Easter this year!
I realize these are lilacs but they are lavender in color and I love to use every shade of purple in the spring. From Berry to lavender to purple – purple! I’ll show you my summer color that I’ll be using to makeover my back porch but it’s a secret so don’t tell! You can see the Magnolia Wreath (With a twist) DIY I did and find that color!
One more for the road! Don’t discount dark and moody! That doesn’t mean gloomy!
I hope you have gotten some inspiration and that you will come back to find more color palettes and some fun DIY’s soon!
