12 Mar Perk Up Your Home with Seasonal Changes
There is a bit of a let-down when the decorations from the holidays are put away. Perk up yourself and your home by changing out some of the touches that make a house a home. Choose to change with the season or with the assorted holidays the rest of the year has to offer, like Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, etc.
Greetings! Welcome yourself and visitors with these ideas. There are welcome signs that come with changeable parts for the seasons and holidays. Or you might try putting a pot of seasonal colored flowers in your entry area next to a tall narrow welcome sign. To further add to the seasonal feel of your doorway, pick out or make a wreath that reflects the season. Like flowers for spring, red white and blue for summer, and foliage and pumpkins for fall, which brings us back to the winter holidays.
Get decorative pillow covers! Decorative pillow covers usually come in an 18”x18” size which is a great size for many locations. Using decorative pillow covers instead of different pillows makes it easy to store your seasonal favorites when they are not in use. Pillow forms are available if you do not already have pillows to cover. Placing decorative pillows and a blanket or throw on the sofa or bed can result in a fresh feel for the whole room. Even wall decor can be changed seasonally if you want.
Don’t forget the kitchen! Changing hot pad holders and towels to go with the season freshens up the kitchen and makes it more lively. Table linens are fun to change with holidays and seasons, too. New placemats or runners make the dining area even more inviting.
No matter how much or little you change for the seasons, remember to celebrate life. Have a good day, Denise
