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.

3 Gorgeous Summer Decoration Tips for Your Home

1. Pare Down

An easy way to make your home feel welcoming on those hot summer days is to think of the space in the same way you would think of a summer vacation rental. Throw open the doors and windows, let the sunshine in by pulling back heavy curtains and get rid of any pieces that are dark or fussy. Store your heavy winter throws and trade them in for pops of colors throughout your home.

2. Amp Up Your Bar

Everyone loves a fresh and fruity summer cocktail or mocktail, so why not make your bar area a focal point for the summer season? With a dedicated refreshment station in your home, you can create a relaxation area that is designed to welcome family and friends inside to grab their favorite summer refreshment.

3. Fill Up the Fireplace

You won’t need to use your fireplace for the next couple of months, so why not transform it for the summer? Stack leftover wood inside or position your favorite candles to make good use of the otherwise unused space. If you’re a fan of more natural decor, you can even frame a large amethyst crystal or hunk of coral inside.
