Tree Classics Favorite Seasonal Decorations

The Christmas season is over, but seasonal decorations are always in style. By incorporating the flair of your region (tropical Florida, the Midwest or sunny SoCal), the trends of the season, and your own personal style, you can keep your home fresh and welcoming all year long. Here are some tips on seasonal decorating for each season of the year.

spring1Spring

Everything is coming to life. Flowers are blooming, the birds seem to sing a little more and the sun shines a little bit brighter. Spring seems wrapped up in life, vibrance and new beginnings. You can capture that springtime glow by making a few little changes that make a big difference in the feel of your home.

Infuse drab or dark spaces with a shot of color and new life by using flowers and leaves. Play with color and create floral arrangements to put in vases or tie with pretty ribbon. Display your springtime masterpieces on shelves or end tables.

You can use an old umbrella and fresh flowers to start the springy-ness at your front door like the author of the Be Colorful blog. Then be creative in sprinkling that theme throughout your home!

Summer speaks of warm sunshine. Rich, vibrant colors characterize this season, and accessories should match the warmth you see outside. Try adding bold accent colors to spice up bland décor. If you’re ever going to experiment with bright accessories, summer is the perfect time for it.

Fall

Ah, autumn. The leaves are falling, brisk air turns your cheeks a pleasant pink, and warm gold, red and brown hues are in abundance from the trees to your cozy sweaters. Your home offers the perfect place to settle in for a comfortable evening with a cup of hot coffee and a good book.

Winter

Dominated by the Christmas holiday season, winter decorating can be tricky. Perhaps you’re trying to avoid holiday decorating clichés and want fresh decorating ideas to celebrate the season. A pre-lit Christmas tree is a fantastic starting place that makes winter seasonal decorating easier. Use your pre-lit tree as a foundation, and then build a winterscape scene to suit your home décor. Try a sleek color palette of stark white and cool silvers and blues to create a modern Christmas display.

It doesn’t have to be hard to make your home a welcoming escape, full of holiday spirit. A pre-lit Christmas tree and accessories in cool colors make for a beautiful winter escape in this room, designed by Marie Antoinette Interiors.

By tweaking your design each season to work with your home’s flair and your personal style, you’ll create an escape with professional style details that your whole family will notice! Taking the time to keep the details fresh–the wreaths on the front door, the centerpiece on the table, maybe a lampshade or two–can make all the difference in the world as you transform your house into a one-of-a-kind home.spring4
