Decorating your home by season is an easy way to keep your home looking fresh and in style, as every space can use a little sprucing up for the new season. By adding a few unique varieties to update your space seasonally will keep it updated and fresh all year round without having to overspend on new furnishing. Accessorise with pillows covers, throws and incorporate fresh greenery and other natural elements into your space. It is the most easiest and affordable way to keep your home updated.
Ways to update your home from season to season.
For the months of summer and spring, I recommend keeping to the lighter shades of decor and in autumn and winter try opting for decorating with darker shades to make your home feel cosier and to bring a sense of warmth into the home.
Changing out your room by season:
For Spring and Summer
bring in those lighter shades to your space like soft blues, greens and yellow tones which will work particular well and will update a home in an instant. You will get that fresh lived in feeling. Dont be afraid to play around with unexpected shades. For an easy update changing your pillow covers, adding a rug with a light pastel shades and opting for lighter fabrics even in the bedroom. Keep your linens light and airy and place a throw at the end of the bed for those chilly nights!!
Spruce up your window treatments by hanging floral patterns to let in the natural light. Decorative objects like candles and table lamps in shades of white or pastel designs will instantly add that pick me up feeling in your space. Bring in the hues from nature like greens by adding in houseplants to create a tranquil environment. As there is much more light in the summer time you should change your room layout to block the light from areas that you don't want the natural sunlight. For example moving your tv away from the sunlight in the summer and spring days.
Help save your flooring from wear and traffic patterns by moving your furniture around during the seasons it will extend its lifespan.
For Autumn and Winter
change your colour scheme to a warmer colour palette. Think delicious colours of deep red, plum, rich velvets and dark blues to give the room that cosy feeling. Decorative objects in brass or copper is a great way to bring the warmth into your rooms decor. I love succulents during autumn and winter as they have a long life span, so incorporate those succulents in different shapes, colours and sizes for a more custom look.
Drape throw blankets and quilts over chairs, or couches. Add bed linens and throw pillows in darker shades and textures to your rooms decor.
Because in winter the days are shorter you might want to add more table and floor lamps to the space to add extra lighting when needed. Rearranging your furniture around your fireplace if you have one. It's a great way to cuddle up around the fire in those cold winter days.
Tips: Carry the change of the season look throughout the home by changing the towels in the bathroom, linen in the bedroom and make use of bringing in unexpected colours with flower arrangement throughout the home. If you change your decor according to season don't forget to store your unused items in a place to easily reach them. Store your off season items in storage bins and label them accordingly.
Happy Styling xoxo
