4 Ways to Add Subtle Seasonal Changes to Your Decor

Seasonal Changes to Your Decor

As we shift into fall, there’s an impulse to get fully into the spirit of the season — with scented candles, pumpkin spice everything and leaves on every surface. But though fall has its own feel and decor, the shift from summer to fall can still be subtle, requiring very little work to make the change. Here are a few tips on how to set up your seasonal decor for easy shifts between the seasons.

4 Ways to Add Subtle Seasonal Changes to Your Decor

  1. Keep your seasonal decor flexible. Instead of laying out a huge amount of decor that is specific to individual seasons, look for more general fall-themed options, such as adding apples, leaves, pine cones, burlap, candles and straw.
  2. Shift between seasons by adding a few touches. With school starting, add a few apples to your centerpiece or mantle as summer’s long, slow days shift into fall’s dry, cool weather and falling leaves. As the season continues, add a fall-themed bow to a door wreath or bouquet.
  3. Make subtle shifts from summer to winter. If you can, consider adding acorns earlier in the season and replace them with frosted pinecones later on. You can also create an arrangement of fall flowers in September and replace them with frosted berries around Thanksgiving.
  4. To celebrate holidays, add a few special items that will still work through the rest of the season. A few simple changes can help you recognize holidays without going overboard in the process.

By keeping your decor adaptable to the changes in the seasons, you’ll be able to reduce your overall workload while still making your home look fabulous. Is it the house itself that’s part of your decor problem? Why not find out what our Vail Valley architects can do to make it right for you?

Eagle Valley High School

Over the past year one of the projects I have been working on has been the Construction Administration for the Addition and Renovation of the Eagle Valley High School in Gypsum Colorado. While the school was never closed due to construction we are in the middle of the final summer push before school resumes for the 2018-2019 school year.

The school went through the demolition of an older section to make room for a new two story science wing and adjacent courtyard.

The Autoshop class was relocated offsite and the Autoshop building was removed to make room for the additional parking needed for a larger student population.

There is an entirely new building which has a little bit of everything, from a lecture hall to culinary classrooms to a CNA training room. The school is collaborating with the local community college, Colorado Mountain College, for some of the classes.

This is all in addition to extensive renovations to the locker rooms, office administration, and the library.

 

For me there is a great sense of accomplishment with collaborating with the local schools as you are helping to shape the learning environments of the future generations and perhaps working where my kids will someday attend.
