Changing up the look of your home with the seasons and holidays is fun, keeps things fresh, and ensures your home is on trend. But a complete overhaul can be expensive and unrealistic. Fortunately, there are simple ways to keep a solid foundation in your space that can easily be revamped no matter what mood or style the calendar calls for.
Power of Neutrals. Key core pieces are best in neutral shades that go with everything. They don’t have to be boring white or basic beige, but think of warm tans and cool greys. Black is always in fashion and adds instant sophistication, while navy blue or deep green can work as a modern neutral. This goes for carpeting, walls, and pricier furnishings.
Add Pops of Colour with Accents. Inexpensive decorative elements are a great way to bring in bolder hues and seasonal flair. Swap pillows and candles throughout the year, rotating through holiday reds, spring florals, summer brights and fall browns and oranges as needed.
Display Decorative Elements in Glassware. Buy a couple of oversized vases that you can stuff with seasonal items, like ornaments during the holidays and beach shells during the summer. For artwork, get simple black or white frames and switch the contents whenever you feel like it. You can frame fabrics, prints, photographs, or dried leaves and flowers.
Fresh Greenery. Instantly spruce up any space with fresh greenery that matches the time of year. You can use seasonal flowers for a traditional look, or go edgy-modern by using natural elements like a vase of sand in the summer or a basket of pumpkins for fall.
