In the midst of all this spring-cleaning, it’s easy to overlook the small stuff, but minor upgrades can completely transform a space from season to season — plus, it’s way cheaper than painting your house a sunny shade of yellow to herald the start of warmer weather.

With summer just around the corner, swapping out a few accent pieces for their lighter, brighter counterparts is a great way to refresh your space. Enter: two new collections from Zara Home that will help you capture that summer vibe. Here are our top picks from the beach and picnic lines.

Upgrade your plastic picnic plates for these vibrant options. Not only will they make your to-go meal feel fancier, they’re also reusable and therefore better for the environment. It’s a win-win. (Coral-colored bowl, $7.90)
