Changing Your Room to Suit the Season


Homeowners often want to change their home’s décor with the change of seasons, and happily, this interior design switch doesn’t have to be too costly or involved. At Home on the Range Interiors, we suggest starting with a neutral base and creating a seasonal look through accessories like area rugs, flowers and wreaths, drapes and throws, duvets, candles and pillows.

Area rugs: 
Incorporate a deep-toned area rug for fall and winter, and then use a lighter-weight option for spring and summer.

A red area rug and throw pillows transform this otherwise neutral room into a great fall and winter space.

Flowers and wreaths:
As they often reflect bits of nature, flowers and wreaths are perfect for seasonal looks.  You can use evergreen wreaths during the holidays, and seasonal blooms the rest of the year.

Drapes and throws:
Lighter-colored curtains work well during the summertime, while heavier materials such as velvet or corduroy work well for winter drapes and throws.

A dark velvet throw draped over your arm chair offers warmth and comfort during the winter.

Duvets:
Seasonal decorating works in every room in the house, including the bedroom. Just switch duvet covers for an instant change, and add extra blankets for fall and winter.

A textural fur blanket adds to the wintry effect of this neutral bedroom.

Candles:
Add candles. A few bright candles work well during summer. Use reds and golds to make the room feel warmer during the winter.

Pillows:
Bring in different pillows in seasonal colors not only in the living room, but also the bedroom.

Café Mom also offered some wonderful “summer-to-winter” design tips, so you can read her piece for more advice. Contact Home on the Range to find out how we can help you enjoy your home design through every season.
