Cost effective seasonal home décor
By Annette Vidrine, Owner of Nest Home Interiors
Is it because of our climate here in South Louisiana that we love seasonal decorating? With every season change, our door wreaths change welcoming both upcoming holidays and our friends and family.
For most of us, our front doors, mantles and dining tables are adorned with splendid displays denoting the time of year. This is typically where it stops. Every other surface in our home remains the same. We have the same tabletop accessories, candles, pillows, throw blankets, etc. year-round.
Of course, suggesting we completely transform our homes with every seasonal change would be impractical, costly and time consuming. However, there are subtle changes we can make to our homes that are rejuvenating, cost effective and take little time to achieve. We’re talking PILLOWS!
Reflecting Your Personal Style
Typically, during your soft furnishing selections, both the body and the pillow fabrics are selected at the time of purchase. They should reflect both your personal style and the interior surroundings of your home.
Years later, the same pillows adorn your lovely upholstered pieces. They still look fine but seem to make you feel a little tired.
In the interior design arena, we like to equate this with wearing the same outfit over and over again. You just begin to feel bored with it when Mother Nature changes the weather, and we retire that outfit for something new and different.
Just as your wardrobe change makes you feel refreshed, changing your decorative pillows with the seasons will make you feel excited and rejuvenated in your cozy surroundings again.
Brighten Things Up
Summertime is a great time to pull some brighter colors into your home. The children are home for the summer, home activity is revved up, and the sun is bright; your home should reflect the happiness summer inevitably brings in.
Vibrant hues are certain to celebrate summer. Adorn your soft-landing places with a few throw pillows of varying colors, patterns and sizes this season. Enjoy bringing the warmth of summer indoors without feeling the heat!
Everyone’s color palettes are different: some are light, others are dark, some are casual, others are formal. Regardless, simple seasonal changes to refresh your interior surroundings can be easily achieved rejuvenating both you and your beautiful home!
