Autumn Leaf

 

Spring

 

Accessories

Floral pillows, birdhouses, watering cans, nature items, and anything that represents the awakening of the earth is Spring.


Fireplace

Clean out your fireplace, and add insert candles or flowers.


Flowers

Tulips, daffodils and other bulbs all scream spring. 

 

Summer

 

Accessories

Now is the time to take down heavy draperies, and replace them with lace drapes.  Lighten up tablecloths, remove area rugs, and bring in fresh flowers.


Color

Lighten your room with white or light colored accessories and furnishing.  If you have an accent wall, paint it a fun summer color.


Furniture

Move furniture away from the fireplace and use your windows as the focal point of the room to look outdoors and sit by the fresh air.

 

Autumn

 

Accessories

Autumn wreaths, pumpkins, gourds, colored corn, baskets, scarecrows, lots of texture, anything that represents harvest time.


Color

Bring in the rich autumn colors of flaming reds, and harvest oranges.

 

Winter

 

Accessories

Warm up your room with cozy quilts and throws.  Bring out the Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving.  Put out shiny metal accents for the holidays with brass, silver, and gold accessories.


Color

Get ready for the holidays with reds, greens, silver and gold.
