Hello, I LOVE changing out my decorations in three main areas of my house depending on what season we are experiencing. It is just a simple way to bring new life into your house. Here are my top ideas to switch out every few months!!
Photographs per Season
I do not know about you, but I cannot see my children in swimsuits when there is snow outside. Frames behind my couch, the hallway leading to the garage, and on a wall in my dining room are places I always change out my photos. I love capturing past memories!!! While I am ‘building’ my photo stashes I have black and white photos that I can put up in the ‘wrong’ season. These are generally fun action ones. Don’t you just LOVE getting that photo of a children in the midst of a genuine laugh or enjoying life, or the picture with Santa when your children were little???
Another way to easily update your home decor is by changing out your faux flowers. I keep the same Pottery Barn baskets and Crate and Barrel vases in my living room but switch out the flowers. I have a plastic storage bin where the out of season flowers wait for their turn! I do pink in the spring, bright reds/oranges in the summer, burnt reds and oranges for the fall, and reds/whites for winter.
If you are feeling ambitious, I also rotate rugs. Right now, I only rotate my front door and then kitchen rugs during Christmas/winter season. I used to have a flower pattern in my kitchen but after the gray snow flakes I decided that blended so much better. So last winter I spent ages looking for the right one.
Rotating throw pillows works really well for bringing the outdoor weather inside. I started buying throw pillow covers. This way I only store the fabric and not 15 plus actual pillows.
Another item that I started changing is my dining room tablescape. The rustic piece is going to be my ‘main’ piece. I will just rotate the tree for something seasonal appropriate. You can read all about my rustic piece here and my fall piece here.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I easily adjust my home decor for the different seasons. It only adds an extra 10 – 15 mins during your cleaning to switch these items up. If you notice, a lot of the items are the same year around I just adjust those items mentioned. The only time I do a full change is Christmas.
