March 23, 2021
Spring is here, and the weather in Upstate NY is temporarily cooperating. I’ve been in a springy mood for about a month now, but it’s a lot easier once I begin decorating with the floral decorations and soft colors of spring. It can be easy to get stuck in the Easter color schemes, so I’ve pulled together eleven duos that are sure to spark some springy inspiration. Which of these spring color palettes is perfect for your home?

Some years we are well into March before I even think about taking down my Christmas decorations. Others I am quick to replace the green and gold garlands with bright florals. Whatever your decorating timeline or style, you are sure to find a new favorite set of colors to create your seasonal decor.
Why pairs? It’s a lot easier to incorporate a smaller seasonal palette into a room in your home by adding just a couple colors instead of feeling like you need to fully redecorate each season. Any of these will go with neutral year-round decor, or you can choose one that includes a color you already feature.
If you’ve stumbled upon this post at a different time of year, you may be more interested in decorating for fall. You’re in luck! I have eleven fall color pairings all ready for you!
There’s nothing like a pop of a warm pink to make it truly feel like spring. I love the balance of this color scheme and how easy it would be to incorporate it into any decor style, from classic to farmhouse to modern to boho.
When I was young, the crocuses were the first flowers to bloom each spring, and subsequently the first to be eaten by rabbits. I remember loving the bold purple color, and so I decided to pair it here with an icy blue to remind you of the end of winter.
These colors together just feel cozy, but not like winter hot cocoa cozy. Instead it’s more like laying in the sun with a puppy and a delicious sweet treat. It reminds me of the rainbow of nature, and all of the baby animals we’ll be seeing soon.
A sure sign that it’s truly spring in Rochester, NY, is the Lilac Festival. The clusters of these light purple flowers release a perfume that fills the city, letting everyone know that (hopefully) the snow is gone for the year. Incorporate these colors in your decor by bringing the nature inside.
Green and yellow is about as close to quintessential spring as you can get. With these two colors together, you can almost taste the bright freshness of lemons and limes, but the slight coolness of the meadowy green reminds you that it’s not quite summer yet.
When we lived in the DC area, a main highlight of spring was the cherry blossoms, and that’s where the inspiration for this color pairing is from. It’s soft and delicate, but still captures the joy of those first few warm spring days.

I love the warmth of this particular palette, and how it feels like it truly captures the colors you first see during the winter to spring transition. There’s a particular glow and a sense of growth that you can complement with tons of greenery.
This is one for the bold. The bright dark pink is balanced out by a splash of sunshine, reminding me of those two-toned tulips. Grab a bouquet of those and some fun loud prints, instead of soft and delicate, with these colors.
It’s brunch season! So break out the mimosas and linen napkins for this bright and fun color pairing. I love a good monochrome color scheme, and spring is the perfect excuse for shades of this fresh orangey yellow.
If you’re not careful, this color scheme can get a little mermaidy. Lean into that if you’d like, especially if you are looking for the whimsy this pinkish-purple and light teal provide. Or go a bit more graphic, with bold prints and animals.
There’s a certain rustic coziness to the combination of a blush pink and light dove grey. I imagine these colors paired with soft, flowy textures like chiffon and organic prints and shapes like peonies and birds.
Which of these is your favorite to incorporate into your own spring decor this year? For me, I am all about adding some brightness with Mimosa & Eggshell in my kitchen and living areas. In my office, I can easily introduce the pale teal of Snowmelt into my decor that already coordinates with the pinky purple Tulip.
