April has arrived and with my favorite spring month (my daughter Emma was born in April) comes warmer weather and brighter colors! While my garden has begun to grow again, none of my flowers have begun to bud yet. I can’t wait for that to happen! In the meantime, I’ve decided to introduce color to my home another way… through a few beautiful and affordable spring accents. My family room is in dire need of color and I’m needing change.
My family room has been in transition mode since the holidays… in other words absent of all colors! I love taking the time between Christmas and spring to leaved my home a little more bare so I can breathe and enjoy my home in it’s neutral state. Once the weather begins to warm a little and we open our doors more, I find myself beginning to look for colorful accents to bring the outdoors in.
Recently I introduced a little spring color with a piece of art hanging next to my fireplace that has inspired my new color scheme for this year. (you can read more about my new art here) Pops of peaches, blush tones, greens and whites are what I’m loving this season. I’m finding these colors are popping up everywhere! Definitely on-trend right now.
I love the way my new colors look at dusk.. soft and beautiful.
If you didn’t already know, Jeff and I love The Home Depot. We hit the store almost weekly for their beautiful assortment of fresh flowers and plants. One of our favorite parts about The Home Depot is their incredible variety of home decor and fun products online. Their online store is full of everything from furniture to faux flowers, throw pillows and more. They have so many spring trends and styles at affordable prices.. I’m a huge fan.
For this refresh I was excited to find everything I needed to update my family room at The Home Depot and dressed up the space without spending a ton.
Colorful & Neutral Spring Accents
Some of the spring accents I selected include a few new throw pillows that I’m in love with. Keeping on top of the colorful scheme that I was after, peachy blush tones were my main focus when looking for cute throw pillows. I love this warm tone when mixed with my gray velvet sectional.
I found 2 gorgeous ruffle throw pillows at an unbelievable price – just $29 and $39 each. The Home Depot carries high-quality brands so when I saw the ruffle pillows were from one of my favorites, The Company Store, I was so excited!
The ‘ruffle pillows’ have wide pleats, which give them that tailored look yet keep them feminine. They can easily be used in a bedroom, living space, office.. anywhere! The colors add that much needed splash in a solid design.

Another fun pillow that I included to the bunch is the soft white velvet tassel pillow. The tassel detail is just one more layer that makes the neutral white pillow interesting and the color brightens the space in the most perfect of ways.

The last pillow that I added to my family room is this peach linen pillow with tan linen border & scroll detail. It’s a beautiful piece that adds gorgeous texture. I love how it anchors the sofa. The actual color is called ‘petal’ but don’t let that fool you… it’s a strong peachy tone!

Faux florals are another easy addition for any spring refresh. You’ll always find a combination of faux and fresh flowers in my home… I love the convenience and versatility they bring. To achieve a natural look, I like to combine 2-3 different styles and colors to make the flowers look more natural.
For my look and style I ordered several mixes of faux florals: 2 Peach Bouquets, 2 Mixed Pink and Rose Bouquet, and 2 Mixed Cream Peony and Rose Bouquet. I personally like to order the bundles of bouquets to get more bang for my buck. Rather than paying $3-10 for one stem, I’m able to get several stems for the same price! Important when you need a larger bouquet.
I’m so happy that I purchased so many bundles of flowers.. as always, I need more than I think. The fuller the better as they say. :)

I had so much fun adding new color to my family room using faux flowers and pillows with this update. I’m also loving the introduction of some of the newer details in my home… pillows with ruffles and tassels are a first for me. So fun! What do you think of my new additions? Do you have a favorite pillow style? Let me know in the comments below!
