Springtime and the new life it brings is an excellent source of inspiration for updating your decor in your assisted living apartment. It's also a special time of year for Bethesda Senior Living Communities, our residents and Christians around the world as we celebrate Easter. Below, you can find ideas for fresh and faith-based spring decor to beautify your living space this year.
Colorful flowers are probably one of the first things you think of when you imagine springtime. Fresh flowers are an uplifting way to celebrate the coming of spring and decorate your assisted living suite, but they don't last forever. Investing in some inexpensive floral wall art lets you enjoy your bouquet for the whole season.
This faith-based floral sign from OkieMamasPrintShop on Etsy features a charming vintage pail overflowing with springtime blooms. It also showcases a calligraphed passage from Ecclesiastes praising God for His beautiful creation. Alternatively, numerous websites like Jellibean Journals provide free Christian wall art printables. You can fill your picture frames with meaningful springtime Bible passages and images and switch them as the seasons change.
Comfy cushions can make your couch or armchair a cozy haven, but they can also help you create a stunning springtime decor theme. You can purchase uncovered cushions relatively cheaply from home decor stores and then update them with seasonal covers. Flowers, wildlife and Easter imagery are all great options for spring cushion covers.
Fortunately, there are plenty of talented craftspeople creating spring-themed cushion covers with a Christian flavor. PCBHome sells various Christian cushion covers, including this delicately illustrated design with an encouraging Bible verse surrounded by a floral wreath.
A springtime sculpture is a lovely way to liven up a bare shelf or create a striking centerpiece for an Easter meal. This YouTube tutorial from Red Ted Art explains how to make straightforward, sculptural flowers from craft paper step by step. They would look lovely attached to a reclaimed log or even piled in a glass bowl to create a DIY spring sculpture for pennies.
Alternatively, consider investing in an Easter-themed sculpture that will become a meaningful keepsake and decorate your assisted living apartment year after year. This stunning Easter Resurrection Scene sculpture from TheGracedWoodshop on Etsy depicts the empty tomb of Christ after He rose again. It would also make a touching faith-based gift for Christian loved ones at Easter time.
Your doormat is probably the last thing you consider when you're thinking about updating your spring decor. However, a stylish doormat creates a warm springtime welcome for visitors to your assisted living suite and is a lovely finishing touch for an Easter theme.
You can find plenty of fresh, colorful floral doormats for sale on Amazon and through other online retailers. Alternatively, you could take the opportunity to spread the Christian meaning of Easter with a doormat adorned with a Bible verse. This stylish Easter doormat from WoodByStu on Etsy features a much-loved verse from Matthew 28:6 and celebrates Christ's resurrection.
Spring cleaning time is the ideal opportunity to update tired or dated bed linen. Changing your linen can give your entire bedroom a totally different aesthetic, and you'll find yourself spoiled for choice when you're shopping for spring-themed covers.
Bedspreads featuring colorful floral designs are ideal for welcoming spring in your assisted living apartment. If you're not a fan of bold prints, plain linens in soft pastel colors offer a fresh and tasteful alternative and mirror the colors of the flowers outside. This gorgeously retro set from the talented Etsy seller ModifiedTot features muted spring tones and lets you personalize the pillow covers with your family's names.
It's the finishing touches that make a home decor theme come to life. Many people use the same coasters season after season, but adding themed coasters to your springtime scheme can bring color to your coffee table while protecting your furniture.
These cute bunny rabbit coasters are tasteful enough for grown-ups but have a whimsical charm that's sure to delight younger family members. Etsy seller Lorettescottage makes these coasters out of natural stone, so they're durable enough to use year after year. Alternatively, these pretty floral coasters by AlaskablueCreations feature beautifully detailed watercolor flowers and calligraphed Bible quotes to remind you of the religious significance of Easter.
Flower garlands are a stunning way to liven up empty mantels and decorate picture frames for spring. However, fresh flower garlands can be expensive from a professional florist and fade quickly. Faux flower garlands provide a long-lasting alternative that you can use every spring, and there are plenty of realistic options to choose from.
This clever YouTube tutorial by creator Lucy Atkins explains how to make a DIY spring garland with fake flowers. If you don't have time to make your own, you can purchase premade garlands at home decor stores or on craft selling sites like Etsy. HolidaydecorCrafts creates long-lasting arrangements and wreaths for every season, including this impressive eucalyptus leaf and rose mantel garland.
