The Four Seasons of Decorating: Fall

When you’re starting to decorate a room, choosing a season as your inspiration can help you create a space that is integrated and interesting. All four seasons are effective, but today let’s consider autumn.

With its rich tones and elements, fall makes decorating easy, beginning with flooring. A wood floor provides just the right foundation for your space. Choose a dark cherry for its deep rich red-brown tones. Or would you rather have an oak with its strong grain and steady tans and browns? Whatever you choose, you have a good start on your fall room.

Grab any or all colors of fall leaves for your room’s fabric choices. Leaf patterns in fall colors, rich stripes of maple red and aspen gold will complement all the browns that oak leaves produce. You can go soft and dark or vivid, but don’t hesitate to combine both moods with the pops of bright color that echo a New England vista in October.

Just go outside to gather a rich provender of fall accessories. Cut a few branches covered with fall leaves and place in a vase along with some large fall blooms of chrysanthemum or dark orange sunflowers. Acorns and pine cones piled into bowls invite autumn into your space. Take it one step further with pumpkins and gourds combined with leaves to make the perfect table centerpiece. Or go simple with a bowl of apples washed and ready for eating.

Turn your space into autumn, and you can enjoy the season year-round.

Using the Four Seasons to Inspire Your Decorating: Spring

The Four Seasons of Decorating: Spring

Not sure where to start when decorating a room? How about designing a space around one of your favorite seasons? From colors to textures to materials, think about how every season provides a clear direction in each category. We’ll begin with spring.

Spend a moment considering what spring looks like to you. In color, how about the cool crisp tones of new leaves and spring flowers? Light yellows, yellow-greens and clear pastels such as pinks and lavenders say spring to the eye. Patterned fabrics such as florals and abstracts in your color choices echo the spring mood.

What about flooring? A light natural bamboo or maple floor nicely supports the spring mood, and lots of white painted moldings – baseboard as well as crown molding or wainscoting – give a fresh spring feel. Window coverings can echo the moldings with shutters in bright white, or consider just white sheers or linen drapes at each window.

Finally, plenty of flowering plants kicks the room into full spring mode. Tulips, daffodils and especially fragrant hyacinths set on a windowsill or lined up on a coffee table add the final touch.

When your rooms are fresh and light, it’s spring no matter what the season outside.
