When you live in an East Coast city like Philly that sometimes sees bitter winters, spring is a much-anticipated break from the icy temperatures, wind, and snow. When you finally have the chance to open your windows and let the sunshine in, you might be inspired to spruce up your kitchen a bit. These spring-inspired kitchen decor ideas will be welcome in your Philly home no matter the season.
One of the clearest indications that spring has sprung is that everything seems to be in bloom — flowers, plants, and trees. Capture the essence of blooming new life by filling your kitchen with fresh, bright-colored flowers in planters. Many blooming plants (including veggies and fruits) start with yellow, white, or pink flowers. Hang them above the windows and place them on your countertops, tables, and walls. If you don’t have the time to tend to multiple live plants, you can decorate with artificial flowers or hire a local artist to paint your walls with them.

The Season of Love
Besides being a season of new growth, spring is also known as the season for love and newly budding relationships; so one way to decorate your kitchen with spring in mind is to add little reminders of love throughout. Get a mini replica of the Robert Indiana sculpture (better known as the LOVE statue) in downtown Philadelphia. Hang it on the wall right above your sink as a continual reminder. A giant black and white print of the classic image of a soldier kissing a nurse on V-J Day will put you in the mood for love every morning while you’re having your coffee. Adorn your countertop with a few romantic candles in decorative candle holders — you can easily transfer them to your dining table for a lovely dinner with someone special. Another idea is to create a heart-shaped wreath made of fresh spring flowers to hang on your refrigerator.
A Little Bit “Country”
It’s always spring in the country, so add some country-inspired patterns and decor to your home for a fresh new look. One idea is to buy a classic metal watering can, paint it with pastel colors, and use it as a holder for your large utensils. Another is to create a country basket full of a wide selection of accouterments from your local craft store. A quick way to add a “little bit of country” to your kitchen is to get a matching set of floral kitchen towels and a floor mat that’s imprinted with a happy rooster.
