It can be so much fun to freshen up your wardrobe at the beginning of a new season. And just how your closet is filled with certain basics, your home should also contain those essential pieces that transition from season to season. For instance, an oatmeal-colored sofa is the furniture equivalent of the little black dress—it provides the perfect foundation to build on. By starting with neutral furniture as your base, you have the option to make over your rooms each season simply by switching up your accents.
Living Room: Season Appropriate
When it comes to decorating, small changes can have a big impact. Home decor staples like accent pillows and area rugs
are easy to swap out as the seasons change and will instantly give your room a whole new look. You can even swap out table lamps
and window treatments to complete your mini makeover.
Just like in your wardrobe, you'll want to reach for home decor in season-appropriate colors, patterns and fabrics. During the spring and summer months, stick with accessories in bright, cheery hues and introduce floral textiles anywhere you can. When you feel that first chill in the air, turn to darker shades (we love navy) and heavier fabrics like jacquard. Ikat patterns (see on the throw pillows
) are all the rage right now and offer a fun way to beat the winter blues.
