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. Even though fall has its own feel and décor, 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 décor for easy shifts between the seasons.
4 Ways to Add Subtle Seasonal Changes to Your Décor
- Keep your seasonal décor flexible. Instead of laying out a huge amount of décor that is specific to individual seasons, look for more general fall-themed options, such as adding apples, leaves, pine cones, burlap, candles and straw.
- 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.
- Make subtle shifts from summer to winter. If you can, consider adding acorns earlier in the season and replace them with frosted pine cones later on. You can also create an arrangement of fall flowers in September and replace them with frosted berries around Thanksgiving.
- 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 décor adaptable to the changes in the seasons, you’ll be able to reduce your overall workload while still making your home look fabulous.
