Have I mentioned how much I love this time of year? Well just in case I haven’t properly expressed my intense happiness over the arrival of “spring” here in the Valley of the Sun and in our heavenly little neighborhood, I just have to say one more time… I really do love it. Citrus, flowers, fragrance, birds chirping, sunshine, fresh mornings, warm days, bikes rides, oh my! That said, I know that some you are currently gutting it out in a place where it feels like winter just won’t quit and you’re about ready to pack up and head for the Bahamas to live out the rest of your days in sunshine-soaked peace, so I thought it would be fun to share my favorite happy, charming, cottage-inspired spring home decor finds that I’ve been so inspired by and lusting after lately, just in case you’re in need of a fresh spring boost while you’re staring at your computer screen with that winter wind whipping out your window. And if that’s still not enough, our little Arcadia cottage is always ready to welcome you whenever you’re ready to give up on that unrelenting cold weather climate.
I love spring decor every year and always say that from about the middle of January when the sweet Valentine’s Day-inspired decor starts hitting shelves right on through to the start of summer is my very favorite time of year to stock up on home decor and switch some things up throughout the house. The home decor that hits the shelves (and the web) during this magical, refreshing time of year definitely speaks to a cottage style lover like myself, with tons of pretty florals, pastels, fresh greenery and woven accents in abundance.
Some of my very favorite affordable home decor pieces that I’ve found out there this season so far are this almost shockingly budget-friendly, cozy seagrass headboard that we loved so much we’ve now put it in both our master and guest bedrooms, this too-cute flower shop doormat, this simple and sweet framed horse print duo, this adorable pale pink teapot that I just think every cottage abode needs, this large pastel framed countryside landscape print that’s such a steal for the price, this amazing natural rattan dining chair that’s a seriously awesome dupe of a much more expensive, almost identical rattan dining chair I’ve had my eye on, this delightful (and delightfully affordable) woven rattan counter stool, this super cool and comfy wood upholstered accent chair, and these pretty in pink fringed cotton napkins. Also I’ve never really been super into faux florals because I think it’s just so hard to find believable faux florals and they’re kind of a pain to keep clean, but I absolutely adore these sweet pink faux thistle arrangements from Hearth & Hand by Magnolia at Target. I styled the on top of our dresser in our bedroom and not only are they totally believable, but they’re just so charming!

I also just want to note about a little home decor trend that I’ve been really intrigued by this season after seeing a few blog friends rave about these gems – comfort or “anti-fatigue” kitchen runners and mats! This is slightly random, not necessarily a “spring” decor topic and a little bit of a new-to-me concept, but something that I think is kind of an awesome idea just based on how much time we spend in the kitchen in our house and how absolutely destroyed our adorable wool kitchen runner gets because of that. If you, like me, have never considered such a thing before, the idea behind these anti-fatigue or comfort kitchen runners and mats is that not only are they so much more durable than your standard cotton kitchen rug or mat thanks to a wipeable, typically polyurethane construction, but they usually include foam padding that provides some much-needed relief for your back, legs and feet. I know that this isn’t a new or novel concept by any means, but since it seems to be making its way into the consciousness of more home decor lovers of my generation as of late and because I fell in love with this absolutely darling and super affordable spring-perfect comfort kitchen runner and because form meets function is the very ethos of cottage style, you can officially count me in!
