With more time spent indoors, it’s important to have spaces of comfort and beauty you can enjoy. Spruce up your home for each season with these home decorating ideas.
Year-Round Decorating Ideas to Try
Start with Neutrals
Choose a neutral palette for your walls, furniture, or fabrics to create a timeless look. Use white, creams, taupes, or grays with a bit of black. These colors work well on their own or combined with other hues.
Decorate with Wood
Natural materials such as wood and wicker add warmth to a room. Fill wooden bowls with seasonal items, from seashells in summer to pine cones in winter. Place them on mantels and tables along with your usual décor.
Use wooden crates in the kitchen for your fresh fruits and pantry goods. Wicker baskets are great for organizing books, toys, linen, and just about anything.
Add Foliage Accents
Greenery instantly freshens any space. Place potted plants and topiaries in corners and entryways. Hang a matching wreath and garland on the door, mantel, or headboard to brighten up a room.
Use Candles and Lanterns
Make evenings more enchanting with the soft glow of candlelight. When arranged on tabletops and shelves, you can create a charming display with seasonal flower arrangements.
String Up Lights
Drape light strings around your windows or porch area. Pre-lit wreaths and garlands work well, too. Turn them on at night to bring a cozy ambience indoors.
Ways to Transition Your Home Décor for Each Season
From Winter to Spring
With the arrival of spring, add color to evergreen wreaths and garlands with delicate-toned flowers of the season. Hang them on your front porch, doors, and stairs. You can also display vases of fresh and faux flowers on tabletops, mantels, or window sills.
For a subtle update, trade chunky fabrics for cool and lightweight cotton or linen. Replace heavy curtains with sheer ones as they allow more light and breeze into your rooms. Line your table with a patterned runner or a floral garland to brighten your meals.
From Spring to Summer
Summer brings more vibrant colors so it’s a good time to replace pastel flower arrangements with brighter ones. To update your decor, keep the same light fabrics but add bold-colored accents such as throw pillows, area rugs, or artwork.
Enjoy time under the sun with a barbecue set up in the backyard. Lay out summer-themed tableware and tablecloths. For a festive feel, hang string lights around the area.
From Summer to Fall
Deck your existing foliage with ornaments of berries, apples, and fall leaves to celebrate bountiful harvests. You can also incorporate seasonal accents such as pumpkins at entryways and on tabletops.
As the weather cools, switch lightweight fabrics to thicker ones. Use area rugs, throw pillows, table runners, and bed scarves in the warmer tones of oranges, browns, and reds.
From Fall to Winter
Arrange thicker fabrics like wool or fleece in your living room and sitting areas. To add seasonal cheer, display holiday decorations prominently on doorways, mantels, and windows.
Your home is a place of rest and refuge so create spaces you’ll love to spend time in all year round. We hope these ideas make it easy to update your home décor from season to season.
