Happy Friday! I’m here today to share how I styled my antique corner cabinet for spring and Easter. I didn’t use much of my Easter decor in my Spring Home Tour earlier this week, so I thought I’d style the corner cabinet with some of my favorite pieces! If you missed my Spring Home Tour, you can see it HERE!
If you are a regular follower here, you know that I’m always changing things up! When I opened my corner cabinet a few days ago, I decided to remove the wallpaper I had placed on the interior walls of the cabinet. It just seemed too busy. I had painted the interior black prior to adding the wallpaper, so that’s the look for now! Can you believe I’m thinking about taking it back to the original interior color that you’ll see in the photos below! But, this post is about styling the cabinet for Easter and Spring, so here are a few more details.

My very favorite piece of Easter decor is one you’ve seen time and again here on the blog – the Pottery Barn Large Pierced Ceramic Egg! I’ve had this egg for years and I still love it, and apparently so does Pottery Barn because they still carry it and it’s currently on sale!
I didn’t go overboard with the Easter items, but another favorite is this antique-look chick mold. I picked it up at a local shop last year and I love how it pares with the antique silver in the milk pitcher. Other favorites to create a spring or Easter vignette are bird nests and tulips. Below I’m going to show the same antique corner cabinet styled for spring three different ways from years’ past.
This photo is from my 2017 Spring Home Tour. It’s really one of my favorite Spring tours! It’s light and bright with the cottage style that I love! In this photo, you can see the interior color before I painted it black. What do you think? Please tell me in the comments which you like better!
This photo was taken in 2016 when I shared the Costco lavender topiaries in the dining room. This was when we had the lighter flooring.
And, this photo was from my 2016 Spring Home Tour! I think Easter was early that year since I have the cabinet styled for Spring in two ways. It’s fun to decorate a china cabinet or hutch seasonally with dishes, cake stands, flowers and plants, and more! I try to mix it up each time to get a different look! This year is definitely more of a minimal look, which is how I’m trying to decorate more and more. But, it’s really hard for me! I don’t know if I will ever be a decor minimalist.
Thanks for stopping by to spend a bit of your Friday here! Let me know which spring styled corner cabinet is your favorite in the comments! And, should I take the interior back to the original neutral color? I love to hear your thoughts! Have a great Spring weekend!
Very pretty. Love the contrast of the dark inside and the light décor and outside. I had those Costco lavender plants too!
Weren’t those topiaries great! I hope I don’t miss them this year if they have them again!
It’s all beautiful, but I believe I prefer the original background.
Love the black paint inside your corner cabinet. Makes all accessories stand out! Love it and the side cabinet too! Pretty.
Doreen, truly love how you style! If you like the farmhouse look the black is working against your white accessories and dishes! Love it!
But I am more a cottage stylist and love the light interior with all the dishes and accessories. Loved the 2017 display!
Anyway you go, you cannot go wrong!
You nailed it! Thanks for weighing in!
I love the original neutral color.
I love that corner hutch, and you always do such a great job decorating it. I prefer the lighter, original color because I prefer the cottage look.
It all looks Lovely… my vote is for the light cottage look… it just makes my heart sing! The way you decorated with the pale yellow china and white dishes looks so charming!
I really like the 2016 spring home tour version with the pastel dishes. I like the neutral color in the interior😊
I, too, love the original neutral. You have such a flair for decorating. All four are really nice. Thanks for sharing your spring ideas.
That is the fun of decorating-different every year & through the seasons! You always do a Beautiful Job and inspire me with each post. Thank u for sharing your creativity!
I vote for keeping the background dark. It is such s beautiful contrast and has a warm welcoming feeling.❤️
Subjective wins the day based on the inside curio color. 🙂 I recently painted my all white hutch interior a medium gray and I love it. Black was a bit too dark for me. The French Linen held the cottage look beautifully. I like all the choices you select for seasonal updates.
I too like the original lighter color, especially for spring and summer! If you want a change in the fall, paint it a different color, maybe a dark burnt orange or whatever your fall and winter colors will be!
Ilove seeing your corner cabinet. I would like to find a way to fit one into my home. I enjoy seeing the large egg, each time you feature it.
I enjoyed my visit today.
I love the original color better. I just love the light cottage look. Everything is so pretty
I love each of the years you decorated the hutch including the wallpaper. Maybe a dark grey would be a nice change , sort of in the middle of your colors and is definitely a trendy color ! Your local friend , Carolyn
That would be a good compromise, Carolyn! Miss seeing you! Hope you are well!
Thank you so much for sharing this! I needed it!!! If you would have ask me before pics I would have said the lighter but WOW!!! the pics make my heart sing with the darker! It makes every single thing stand out but fit together perfectly!!! Absolutely beautiful as always!!! Have a blessed day
Doreen, you always do a beautiful job. I love your cozy home.
I think I like the cabinet best with the dark interior paint. It makes everything stand out, and it’s warm and inviting with the wood shelves.
I always admire people who are brave enough to ask for opinions! I love love love the blue dishes with the yellow, it made my heart skip a beat! They are all lovely in their own way though, just like different personalities or seasons, there is beauty to be found in different opinions too!
I like how you aren’t afraid of change. I’ve always liked how you style this cabinet. The black is very dramatic. The things inside are so pretty. The bunny mold is perfect!
I like the chest black too. What pretty flowers on your table. You are ready for spring!!
I love the look of the blue interior- I think it shows off your light/white accessories. And since I just painted the interior of a cabinet blue, I know its not as easy as it looks!
It is all so lovely. I especially love the blue gray sideboard/dresser.
Gorgeously styled antique corner cabinet for Spring!
I l o v e the black background with each vignette created on each shelf!
I can see a change coming.
(Had you thought of the same blue that is in the cabinet near the hutch?)
Truly, inspiring Spring decor!
Doreen, I love the contrast of the white and silver pieces against the dark backdrop, it is a very dramatic contrast and quite striking! You have such a good eye for styling shelves; that is one area where I really struggle. Thank you for the Easter inspiration! Your corner cabinet looks lovely!
While I enjoy all of the options, the black is my favorite. It seems to anchor things as it pulls the eye around to each item of visual interest. Stunning, really.
