Spring: A Breath of Fresh Air

As the world awakens from its winter slumber, it’s time to infuse your home with the vibrant energy of spring. It’s time to put away the heavy blankets and dark colors, and welcome light, airy decor that celebrates the season of renewal.

Spring Textiles

Swap out your winter throws for lightweight fabrics like linen and cotton. Change the look of your window treatments to include breezy curtains that let the sunlight stream in. Floral in moderation isn’t a bad idea either, just don’t go overboard. An accent pillow or two with floral motifs can help inspire springtime.

Spring Color

Embrace the freshness of spring with pastel hues like soft pinks, baby blues, and pale greens. Think of your home as a blooming garden and let these colors blossom throughout your space.

Spring Nature

Bring the outdoors in with fresh flowers and leafy greenery. Fill your vases with tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths for a burst of color and fragrance that will rejuvenate your senses.

Spring Textures

Keep things light and breezy with smooth surfaces and airy textures. Think glass vases, rattan accents, and sheer curtains that flutter in the spring breeze.

Spring Accessories

Add some garden-inspired decor with spring-themed accessories like ceramic bird figurines, woven baskets filled with Easter eggs, and botanical artwork that celebrates the beauty of nature.

Spring Senses

Take things a step further by engaging your senses with light, fresh scents like citrus, lavender, and mint.

Summer: Sunshine and Serenity

As the days grow longer and the temperatures rise, it’s time to embrace the laid-back vibes of summer. Think lazy days spent lounging by the pool and warm evenings spent sipping cocktails on the patio. With the right decor, you can bring the carefree spirit of summer into your home.

Summer Textiles

No need to take down the curtains from spring. Keep things cool and comfortable with the same lightweight fabrics of cotton and linen, or even sheer layers. Retire the pastels to add a pop of color with brightly colored cushions and throws.

Summer Color

Channel the sunny vibes of summer with bold, vibrant hues like citrusy oranges, tropical greens, and ocean blues. Let these colors wash over your space like a refreshing wave of energy.

Summer Nature

Bring the beauty of the outdoors inside with potted plants, fresh flowers, and beach-inspired decor. Think seashells, driftwood, and woven seagrass baskets that remind you of lazy days spent by the shore.

Summer Textures

Keep things relaxed and casual with natural textures like jute rugs, bamboo accents, and woven hammocks. Embrace the laid-back vibe of summer with soft, tactile fabrics that invite you to kick off your shoes and unwind.


Add some coastal charm with summer-themed accessories like nautical stripes, tropical prints, and beach-inspired artwork.

Summer Senses

Fill your home with the sounds of summer—think waves crashing, birds singing, and the gentle hum of cicadas in the distance. Light candles scented with coconut, pineapple, and mango for a tropical ambiance that will transport you to your favorite beach destination.

Autumn: Cozy Comforts

As the leaves begin to change and the air turns crisp, it’s time to embrace the cozy comforts of fall. Think warm, steaming beverages, crackling fires, and evenings spent curled up with a good book. With the right decor, you can create a warm atmosphere that celebrates the beauty of the season.

Autumn Textiles

Cozy up your space with plush fabrics like velvet, wool, and faux fur. Swap out your lightweight throws for chunky knit blankets and add luxury with velvet cushions in rich, autumnal hues.

Autumn Color

Embrace the warm, earthy tones of fall with shades like burnt orange, deep reds, and golden yellows. Let these colors infuse your space with a sense of comfort that will make you want to snuggle up by the fire.

Autumn Nature

Bring the beauty of the outdoors inside with branches of colorful foliage, bowls of seasonal fruits, and rustic wood accents.

Autumn Textures

Layer on the textures for maximum coziness. Think plush rugs, velvet curtains, and woven baskets filled with blankets and throw pillows. Embrace the rustic charm of fall with distressed wood accents and aged brass.

Autumn Accessories

Tune into the harvest charm with fall-themed accessories like pumpkin decor, leaf-shaped candles, and rustic centerpieces. Hang a wreath made of autumn leaves on your front door and set out bowls of candy corn for a festive touch.

Autumn Senses

Light candles scented with cinnamon, apple, and pumpkin spice for a cozy ambiance that will make you feel like you’re wrapped in a warm blanket. Play soft jazz music in the background and snuggle up with a mug of hot cider for the ultimate fall experience.

Winter Transition

You might expect winter to have its own section, but with the holidays quick to follow, consider making just a few tweaks to your autumn decor instead of doing a complete overhaul. Keep the jewel tones, and maybe add or swap some out with silver accents here and there. Add some lights to the interior and exterior of your home, a holiday tree in the living room, and save the rest for gifts.
