When a new season approaches I look forward to the change of scenery. The change outdoors usually ushers a change indoors too! Each month of the year I choose a specific design project or room to work on, but during the transitional months (March, June, Sept, and Dec), I focus on seasonal updating.
As you know, I stay pretty neutral with most decor which allows me to have a change of scenery with the seasons. I have room to play with some color, pattern, and texture. I like to think of my home as a white canvas where I can have space to be creative and make changes as needed. I keep it super simple and choose something within each of these guidelines to bring into our home.

That being said, I do this using…
rugs / doormats throws / pillows plants / greenery
These are the 3 simple updates I use to usher in a new season, but you can change these to anything you want. As long as you have an update in these 3 categories your going to notice that special touch of change that gives your home a fresh and inviting look.
On a side note, I love design and decor so that is typically where I can go overboard. When stores and marketing campaigns promote their new seasonal lines it can make you want it all! Take notice of that, and don’t get caught in that trap. Not many of us have the funds to have it all, and we sure don’t need it all, so be a wise shopper and stay focused on what you can afford and what brings your home and all of those in it happy. You can carry a few pieces all around your home and interchange things here and there. The images above show how I’ve done that with a couple pieces I added this spring. It can be done with rugs, doormats, wreaths, and plants too! Think outside the box. I’m still on the hunt for a wreath and doormat…
I’ve included some of my favorite pieces below so have a look and get inspired… Happy Spring!
