As the seasons change, so does the decor for many people’s homes. Especially if you have kids, there’s nothing more fun than decorating your home to match the season as a way to help your family and your little ones get into the spirit of whatever holidays or events are coming up.
To help you in doing this for each quarter of the year, here are four tips for decorating your home for each season.
Winter: An Evergreen Christmas
The biggest seasonal celebrations during the winter months come in December. For some, this includes celebrating Christman. For others, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, or Winter Solstice are the causes for celebration.
In many places, one of the prevailing colors of winter and wintertime celebrations is white. So when you’re decorating your home, it makes sense to choose a color that will stand out as well as bring the spirit of the season. And according to Deirdre Sullivan, a contributor to The Spruce, using evergreens is a great way to do this. Whether you’re putting up lights on the outside of your home or setting up other exterior decorations, if you implement some evergreen boughs into your decor, you’ll not only look festive but will also naturally embrace the seasonality of the winter months.
Spring: Bright Colors And Hanging Plants
As winter fades to spring, it’s time to bring in some more color and life to your outdoor decor.
According to Zee Krstic, a contributor to MarthaStewart.com, implementing all types of colors into your outdoor decor is a great way to embrace holidays like Easter as well as play our part in brightening up the world around you just as the new flowers of spring do. In addition to this, you could also try hanging up some green plants to bring in more life and vibrant greens as the world around you changes from dull grays and browns.
Summer: Comfort And Lights
In the summer, you’re likely going to be spending more time outside than in any other time of year. Because of this, your outdoor decor should center around keeping yourself and others safe and comfortable when outdoors.
To do this, Ashley of Modern-Glam.com, recommends that you adorn your patio furniture with comfortable blankets and string up some lights to keep you company when you’re up late at night enjoying the warm summer air.
Fall: For The Kids
Fall has so many fun things to offer kids that it only makes sense for you to focus your outdoor decor on this as well.
Hadley Mendelsohn, a contributor to House Beautiful, shares that by using things like pumpkins, hay bales, corn stalks, and other fall or Halloween decor to spruce up your home, you’ll be ready once the time of trick-or-treaters rolls around.
If you’re wanting to freshen up your outdoor decor this year, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you accomplish this.
