Decorate your home according to the seasons with these simple and beautiful decorative tips.
Celebrate this season by opting for colors like pale violet, pastel yellow, pink and blue-green. Other spring options:
- Decorate the window sill with early flowering flowers such as crocus, tulips and daffodils in small terracotta pots.
- Opt for sheers, tablecloths and cushions that illuminate the room. Look for simple, embroidered or printed patterns that complement your decor.
- Rework your accessories. Dust the shelves. Take out your flowery porcelain or clear glassware and change the dark cushions of the sofa for more cheerful tones.
- Move the furniture facing the fireplace to enjoy a garden view instead.
Summer is perfect for rich colors. Here’s how to add some summer touches:
- Placing a white linen cover on the couch will create a summer atmosphere, especially if you use colored cushions to accentuate.
- Counter the summer heat with cool hues; outdoor tables draped in blue and white bring a breath of fresh air to the garden.
- Create a nautical atmosphere by filling glass tubes with sand of different colors and sizes, and place them on the balcony.
- Change your heavy oriental rug for a light natural sisal rug.
- Replace your fireplace logs with white candles of different sizes and heights.
- Arrange sunflowers in glass vases and light them with lanterns at dusk to add a warm decorative element to your garden parties and barbecues on the terrace.
You can decorate your home or apartment effortlessly with leaves and berries and forest:
- Imitate the changing colors of the leaves with accents in warm shades of orange and red. In addition, the forest and golden green harmonize perfectly with the autumnal hues.
- Highlight the arrival of autumn with textured and soft fabrics like suede, velvet and felt. Autumn-colored satin adds sparkle to table decorations.
- Place decorative elements such as fresh or dried leaves, chestnuts, acorns or beeches in simple bowls to decorate tables, buffets and window sills.
- Create autumn table decorations using pumpkins, dried wheat stalks, corncobs and squash – just spread them on the table.
- Looking to add an autumn and edible stamp to a room? Place vibrant red apples and juicy pears in a large glass bowl to turn into an ornament.
Even if it’s cold outside, create a warm atmosphere in your home with these tips:
- Recall ice and snow with shades of white, turquoise and blue-green. Of course, the iconic color of winter remains the immaculate white, which combines beautifully with other seasonal colors.
- You can also chase the winter cold with rich shades of purple, gold and red.
- Use winter decorative fabrics such as soft wool, luxurious satin, chenille and lambswool. Incorporate these colors with cushions, throws and curtains.
- Add warmth to a room (literally and figuratively) by replacing your curtains with heavy draperies.
- Carpet tiles are a quick and inexpensive way to warm floors in your living room or bedroom.
- For a colorful and cozy winter, make a bolster by sewing two scarves together lengthwise, then fill them with cotton wool and fasten the ends with ribbons.
- Attract attention with decorative glassware like vases or lanterns. These contrast nicely with rustic wooden decorations.
- Opt for a vase of wheaten or coniferous twigs or for a bowl filled with sparkling Christmas balls, apples or oranges for a nice winter touch.
