Do you need some inspiration to get your home ready for spring? Then check out this modern farmhouse spring home tour.
We’re already a month into spring and I’m loving the changes in nature outside of my home.
Even if that means dealing with all the pollen and allergies that come along with it.
Since the trees and flowers are blooming, it was time to get the inside of my home looking as pretty as the outside.
I needed to spruce things up for the spring & summer seasons.
Most of the decorating I do in the spring stays out right through the summer. with the exception of a few bunnies and eggs, that I’ll probably pack away soon now that Easter over.
I like to keep my home light and bright for the warmer seasons and just add lots of greenery around our house.
After I styled my house this spring, I looked around and realized that I really do use a lot of greenery.
And guess what…it’s all fake!
I shared over 19 easy ideas to decorate with faux greenery if you need some inspiration and links to purchase great artificial greenery.
Now go grab a cup of tea or a glass of wine depending on what time you’re reading this and come with me to tour my spring home.

How to Style a Front Porch for Spring
I don’t go overboard with spring décor out on my small front porch because of all that nasty pollen we get in North Carolina.
Wow…we had pollen in New Jersey, but its seriously we’re in a whole other league in the southeast.
A basket of spring faux stems on my front door, sweep the porch, shake out the rug and call it done.
Okay, I did throw a couple of pillows out on our bench when I was taking photos.
But you can’t blame me…don’t they look awesome there?
Don’t worry I’ll put them away so they don’t get covered with pollen.
We recently refreshed our small porch and really enjoy sitting out here at the end of the day watching the dogs play in our front yard.
The glass in my black metal lanterns broke after getting knocked over during a storm.
Rather than tossing them, I repurposed the frames of the lanterns and add a small potted flower.
I just haven’t bought my summer annuals yet this year, but you can see how beautiful it looks here.
How to Create a Casual Front Entryway
We have a fairly large but wide open front entryway, so there aren’t a lot of walls for furniture or décor.
Last year I updated our foyer and went from traditional to a casual modern farmhouse style.
The row of hooks is a great place to add seasonal or holiday décor.
You can get all the details of how I decorated my entryway for spring here.
And find out what new décor item in this space I found on my trip to Waco, Texas.
By keeping all the décor in my foyer neutral it really won’t need to be changed for summer months.
Maybe I’ll swap out the wreath or the stems in the basket.
But if I don’t get around to it that’s just fine because it feels airy for summer too.
How Can One Faux Plant Help Style a Room
My formal living room is to the left when you walk into our entryway and is completely open to the foyer.
There are just two support posts dividing the room from the entry hallway.
Oh and this room is carpeted so that helps visually separate it from the foyer…sort of.
We’d love to install hardwood in this room someday since it’s so open to the rest of the house.
Although this room is technically the formal living room, I’ve designed it as another casual cozy room in our home.
And the gallerys that span both walls create a warm and welcoming sitting room.
For spring, I placed a faux plant and lavender orb in an antique locker basket on our coffee table.
Just adding this simple artificial greenery is all the room needed to bring some life and brightness for spring.
What Do You Need to Decorate a Farmhouse Dining Room?
If you’re still a fan of the farmhouse style like I am, then you probably have some painted furniture in your home too.
I painted our old dining room table, chairs and china cabinet years ago.
It was a 90’s style pine set that was stained in an orange tone.
Remember that look?
The white is sooo much better and brighter!
But lately, I’ve been thinking of stripping this set because I really love the look of raw wood furniture.
What do you think?
For now, I’m keeping the painted farmhouse style furniture and will be updating the room with trim and paint.
So stay tuned for those exciting changes.
I styled my chippy white table with a garden themed centerpiece this spring.
DIY terra cotta whitewashed pots are the star of the tablescape.
Then, I set the table for our Easter brunch virtual supper club using little baskets on each place setting.
The natural elements that decorate the dining table add to the farmhouse style of the room.
A black painted console table with mirror stores photo albums in baskets on the bottom and candles in the drawers.
Having the console table in the dining room allows me to use it as a buffet table for an extra serving area when we are hosting family and friends.
A couple of wood and glass pillar candles and a distressed vase can easily be moved out of the way when needed.
The lavender faux stems fill the urn and add some pretty spring color to the sideboard.
Another small painted cabinet across the room is styled with a trio of wood candle sticks.
The wood and glass cloche filled with a bunny and nest of eggs is a simple touch of spring.
Isn’t that big personalized canvas awesome?
I created it online at Canvas on Demand.
Did you know they have they offer customizable word art?
How to Add Simple Spring Touches to a Family Room
The family room is the space we seem to all gather in the most in our home.
Well, maybe it’s the kitchen.
Hmmm…well…it’s probably a toss up. LOL!
Although, I’ve gone against some of the current design rules with our huge media console unit…large tv…
and a big sectional couch, I love our cozy family room.
It’s a super comfortable space that my family likes to relax in and binge watch our favorite tv shows.
The dark stain of the media center makes decorating the shelves a little more challenging.
I try to style the shelves with lighter colors so they can be seen better.
Distressed white picture frames, book ends, and candle pedestals pop against the dark wood.
Mixing in some faux greenery also helps brighten the dark shelves.
And the large vase on the top of the furniture piece filled with pretty white cherry blossom faux stems is perfect for spring.
Again, the white pops against the natural grays and browns of the stone fireplace.
A little fig leaf tree in a white woven basket adds a neutral look on the hearth for this season.
How to Decorate a Hallway for Spring
Behind the sectional couch is an open hallway that leads to the kitchen.
My favorite console table from World Market is so fun to style for new seasons and holidays.
A wood dough bowl filled with faux greenery stems and a basket of eggs is all that is needed to bring a spring vibe to the table.
Between the a doorway for our dining room and the kitchen is this little nook.
Some of the homes in our neighborhood have a small built in butler’s pantry in this area.
However, the builder didn’t add feature in our house.
I found this bar cabinet years ago that fits perfectly in the space.
We are able to store all of our spirits and glassware in this cabinet.
It’s another space where a few simple and affordable fig leaf faux stems in a glass jar brings a bit of the outdoor nature in.
Okay, it’s not real nature but it kinda looks like it doesn’t it?
Thanks for touring my modern farmhouse spring home.
I hope I gave you some inspiration to sprinkle a little spring around your home too!
