Since our seasons are so short, I’m always looking for ways to style our home in ways that can transition into the next season or at least be able to carry the majority of the decor over with slight changes to freshen it up. It’s always great to have new and fun stylish pieces whether store bought or DIY. Today, we’re sharing our tips on how you can transition your decor from fall to winter, without having to spend a fortune!
Switch Up Your Throws & Pillows
A quick and easy way to refresh your space is updating your throw pillows and bringing out and styling your blankets. Don’t just have your blankets shoved in a cabinet, but rather think of a fun way to style those warm and cozy blankets. We got this adorable ladder at a flea market and it makes for the perfect blanket holder in our family room. During the summer months, we keep most of our warm blankets stored away, so I use this ladder in our bathroom for our towels.
Swapping out our pillows is something I love to do with the change of seasons too. During the summer months, we have cool, blue tone pillows and during the winter it’s all about the soft golds and metallics with furry textures.
Refresh Your Mantle Decor
Updating your mantle decor is another easy way to redecorate for the seasons without completely rearranging your entire space. We always recommend going with a neutral color scheme and picking a fun accent color, which allows you to transition your mantle decor from holiday to holiday without completely tearing down and setting up a new display.
Soft blush pink is really hot right now so instead of the traditional orange and yellow for this fall, we’re going white and pink through the fall and into Christmas.
Once you’ve decided on your color palette, it’s time to style your mantle. Pick a large focal point piece for the mantle. Below, we used a sign that we got from Projects in Person (which you can DIY at their studio if you’re in Minnesota). I love this saying, “Let’s Stay Home,” because I can’t think of anything more I want to do in the fall and winter months. Mirrors, frames, or a reclaimed piece of barn wood (like we’re showing this morning on WCCO), also work great for the large focal piece.
Shop Your Yard
It’s all about the greenery and bringing the outdoors in and so many of the things in your own yard are perfect for decorating in the fall and winter months. Go outside and find greenery, pine cones, sticks, tree bark, spruce trees, and more. If you love that fresh greenery and can’t find any in your yard, go to Home Depot or Lowe’s and ask for their scraps and they’ll give them to you for free. Then take all that greenery and sprinkle it throughout your home along the door frames, over your mantels, bookshelves, and in your table landscapes. You can never get enough free greenery in your home and nothing makes a statement more than the fresh smell of pine.
Use Printables to Change Wall Decor
A simple way to change up the decor on your walls is by using frames that can be switched out with different printables depending on the seasons. Check out our free fall printables HERE and free winter printables HERE.
Create a Centerpiece
Entertaining is so fun, but sometimes it can feel daunting to come up with a pretty tablescape. We love how this one incorporates those white pumpkins we already have with cozy candles, antlers, and white fabric bunches. This is something you could use throughout the fall season and would also be a perfect centerpiece for Thanksgiving dinner. Check out more Thanksgiving tablescapes HERE.
