How to Gradually Change your Home Décor with the Seasons
September 4, 2020

Decorating for any season can make you want to break open all your decor boxes and quickly start updating your home! Let yourself decorate with minimal time, money, and energy by gradually adding seasonal decor throughout your home. This way you’ll be able to collect new decor pieces throughout the season.

Here are a few tips on how to make your home decorating process a little more gradual and a lot more satisfying!

Start with Surface-Level

Start with Surface-Level

To encourage gradual change, try to continuously update your surface-level décor. By surface-level, we mean the little things on your dining room table, kitchen island, walls, counters, shelves.

Whether it’s adding a few seasonal flowers, changing out your placemats, updating your accent pillows, or adding a new candle, the little surface-level changes go a long way. This will ultimately change the vibe of your home, making it cozier for those fall nights!

Let in the Linens

Most people don’t change their home décor gradually because it takes too much time and effort. But it doesn’t have to.

Linens are one of the central aspects of home decor in nearly every room, and they’re super easy to change. Think about it: You have towels, mats, rugs, blankets, tablecloths… the list goes on. Switch out your everyday accent blanket to a fuzzy fall blanket, or lay that autumn-pun doormat outside!

Change with Nature

Change with Nature

We love using nature to decorate! And one reason for that is it forces you to change gradually with the seasons.

If you decorate with fresh flowers, greenery, etc., you know these things don’t last forever. When they wilt or run dry, you simply shift to whatever’s in season. Add fresh fall leaves, cotton, or mini pumpkins to your tablescapes. It’s the easiest way to change with the seasons because nature is the embodiment of the seasons. You can’t go wrong!

Add Something New

Add Something New

Every time you’re shopping and see something you’d love to put in your home, there’s always that little voice in your head that says: “Do you really need it?”

Well now, you can tell that voice, “Yes, I do!”

We’re not trying to turn you into a hoarder. On the contrary, getting new things allows you to get rid of the stagnant elements in your décor. It keeps your home fresh, and plus it’s shopping, so it’s fun!

One of the biggest benefits of gradually changing your home décor with the seasons is that it keeps your home feeling alive and ever-changing—like it’s a part of you. It will also sharpen your decorating skills so your guests will always be impressed by your style. Keep decorating, keep changing, and keep loving your space!
