Four Ways to Refresh your Home for Spring
The minute the sun starts to shine, even in the earliest spring days when surprise snow showers are still likely, we get the urge to freshen up our rooms with the colors of spring. The new season feels like a fresh start. If you’re looking for ways to brighten up your home, try these 4 ideas to update your spaces.
1. Bring in Bright Colors
Find small ways to add bright colors into your home for an immediate refresh and mood enhancer. Reminiscent of happy spring flowers, colors can be found in textiles, decor, and even the most functional organizers.
Our canisters, with a glossy finish and snug-fitting wooden lids, are the perfect hiding spot for cotton swabs, rubber-bands, messy paper clips, or hidden treasures you might want to keep out of sight of small hands.
Blue Ceramic Tray
Line these platters with cookies and you’ll see why they might be the best (and fastest) way to gather. We also think they look nice holding car keys or collecting stray pieces of jewelry.
This is the reversible pillow that everyone needs. An earthy malachite piping frames a bright floral print on front, black and white checked on back. (Or is it checked on front, floral on back? You get to decide.
The fine-knit weave and cursive lettering make this pillow (with playful pom poms!) the perfect reminder of things we grow at home: love, knowledge, faith, and little perfect bodies.
We like thinking of the navy pom-pom pillow as the perfect go-with-anything accent. The tight knit weave makes it inviting, the dark navy makes it timeless, and the pom poms keep it playful.
2. Add Affordable New Art Pieces
New art can give your whole space a new feeling. Reminders of faith and hope can feel inspiring every time you walk into your room. Great art doesn’t have to be expensive. Find affordable prints to put in an old frame. Or use smaller pieces to decorate bookshelves that make it easy to switch them out when inspiration strikes. There are so many ways to bring affordable art into your home.

3. Buy Fresh Flowers

Like so much of our collection, these ceramic vases work well in a group or by themselves. (Only, they tend to get lonely.) Our larger vase is good for a fresh bouquet and the smaller bud vase for when tiny hands cut a single flower.
4. Layer Textures
Layer pieces to create texture and interest throughout your home. You can do this in the kitchen with wood cutting boards, with your blankets in the living room, and with different sized pillows on couches and beds. Get creative! Use what you already have and change things up a bit.

One of the most important elements of the Gathering Collection is the focus on Christ-centered celebrations. This beautifully designed plaque is a reminder that even the smallest gatherings are an invitation for Jesus Christ to be found in our midst.
