Spring is in the air in Central Texas! The grass is turning a bright, luscious shade of green, lady bugs are regularly gathering on my kitchen door warming themselves in the afternoon sun, and the temperatures are climbing into blissful 70s. I’m ready to shake off the winter cold, open the windows, and let the promise of fresh, new beginnings swirl into my home.
Simple, airy, and fresh decor is my theme for Spring throughout my home. I’ve been ruthlessly decluttering with my sights set on keeping only the things my family and I love. This weekend, I’m focused on inviting an airy and light feeling into my kitchen. I thought it would be fun to share with y’all some of the farmhouse kitchen decor elements I have my eye on.

1. Slate + Acadia Wood Cheese Paddle
I have a “thing” for cutting boards. Some may call it an obsession. I call it a collection (wink wink). This cheese paddle combines my love of cutting boards and cheese (anyone else c-r-a-z-y about cheese?!) into one piece that’s functional and serves as versatile decor. I add my cutting boards to racks + baskets I have scattered throughout my kitchen, prop them in front of outlets on my counter to conceal them, and lay them flat on my island with a white pitcher of flowers.
2. Recycled Clear Glass Soap Dispenser
A simple glass soap dispenser next to the sink is perfect for hand soap and dish soap. I like to fill mine with clear soap to keep a clean and consistent look.
3. Tier Wood Tray
This tray has me a little giddy. The white, chippy paint coupled with the warm wood is farmhouse at its finest. This would be darling with seasonal decor, on a coffee bar holding mugs, with rolled up kitchen towels, as a centerpiece on an island, or filled with spice jars. The wheels are turning!
4. Myrtle Topiary
I cannot keep plants alive. It’s a fact that I often am in denial about. Every once in awhile, I’ll find myself browsing the aisles of the local nursery, taking in the beauty, and a small voice will pop into my head convincing me I’ve suddenly inherited my grandma’s green thumb. Next thing I know, I’m proudly bringing home an innocent, new plant determined to keep it alive. And just like that… well, it never ends how I imagined. Faux plants that look real feed my love of greenery and my internal struggle. I have them sprinkled throughout my home. They are one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to bright up any space.
5. Drying Rack + Mug Holder
I have one of these on my coffee bar. I use it to keep my coffee mugs within arms reach of the coffee maker. Over the summer, I moved it next to my sink and used it as a drying rack. I LOVED it! I’ve also used it to hold my collection of little, white creamers and small pitchers.
6. Burlap + Lace Table Runner
Aw, I love the combination of casual and fancy this burlap and lace table runner has. It’s fresh, fun, and unexpected.
7. Glass Carboy
A simple glass jar with detail is a stunning way to bring an understated look into any space. All alone, in a grouping of different styles + sizes, with branches from the yard, or faux greenery, this carboy has versatility written all over it.
8. Olive Branch
Wouldn’t this olive branch be lovely added to the carboy above?!
9. Blue + White Dish Towels
I’m a sucker for dish towels. I use them to dry dishes, as napkins + placemats, in bread baskets, and as hand towels. The crisp mix of blue and white is classic and compliments the farmhouse, vintage feel I adore.
10. Metal Windmill Clock
Words aren’t necessary for how fabulous this clock is! You can’t go wrong with a windmill + roman numerals + a weathered look all wrapped up into a clock.
11. Metal Wire Basket
I use baskets in my pantry to hold snacks for my kids, under my kitchen island to hold napkins, and linens. Under the kitchen sink, they hold cleaning supplies and extra towels. I prefer using styles that are metal or wicker over plastic so I may transition them into other areas of my home when the need arises. I’m loving the handles on this cutie!
12. Wood Apothecary Drawers
Keys, sticky notes, paper clips, extra change… I’m imagining these apothecary drawers as a perfectly organized stylish junk drawer on my counter!
How do you welcome Spring into your home?
Blessings to you and your home,
