Changing seasons outside is the perfect reason to change your decor inside. Take inspiration from the weather! Bring the colors of fall into your home with the leaves start to change; transform your home into a festive and fun winter wonderland; use fresh flowers and other seasonal decor to liven up your home in the spring and summer. Not sure where to start? Here are some great decorating ideas that go from fall to winter.
Set The Stage With A Rug
A good rug can serve as the starting point for decorating any room. Area rugs come in all shapes and sizes, so even if you have a long and narrow living room you can still find one to fit the space perfectly. If you have a larger space, you can use two rugs to separate the distinct areas. Just be sure the rugs complement and coordinate with each other.
The Power Of Pillows
You'll be amazed at the impact a few well-placed throw pillows can have on an entire room. For a modern look, go with an odd number of pillows, like three or five. Traditional decorating takes on a more symmetrical look with two or four large pillows arranged on either side of a sofa. When decorating with pillows, think of a living room's pillows as a family. The group on the sofa doesn't have to match the single pillow on the chair, but if they relate in color or style, the space will feel more put together.
Arrange Artful Displays
Organize accessories around similar colors and display like objects with like objects. Use your mantel or a long shelf to line up a collection of favorite items, like plates, figurines or books. In a child's room, you can use the same concept to keep stuffed animals, baby toys and other treasures out in the open yet out of reach.
Use repeated multiples of little things and group favorite objects in odd numbers; that setup is naturally more appealing to the eye than even-number groupings. Stagger their heights and add space between them for a more artistic appearance. Even decorative bathroom accessories can be taken to new heights with this technique.
Fruit or flowers picked up at a market add instant wow to tablescapes, shelves and entryway tables. Change them out frequently to keep your home looking fresh. Looking for holiday table suggestions? Here are some tabletop ideas for any holiday.
