4 Tips for Trading Out Seasonal Accessories


If you're like many, you're probably biting at the bit to get your fall decor out and put your summer stuff away! Of course, it won't be long and you'll be putting the fall away and dragging out Christmas. It's an endless cycle that happens every year, and with a little planning and organization you can streamline the process and make it easier on yourself while still keeping your home appropriately and seasonally decorated! Here at John Elliott Interiors, we know that your number one goal is to make your home beautiful, so here are a few tips to achieve that.

Find Ways to Easily Trade Out Items

Depending on the decor around your home, you can make it easier to easily add seasonally appropriate accents. Do you have a wreath on your front door? Find something that easily matches your style and then add seasonal accents to make it match all season long. You can add orange and red leaves for fall, snow men and pine boughs for winter, pastel flowers for spring, and bright flowers and butterflies for summer. You can take this same concept through your home when you add seasonal accents to the pieces you already own.

Remember to Include Seasonal Scents

It's time to go candle crazy and get those seasonal scents in your home. There's nothing that brings a seasonal giddiness like opening your next box of holiday decor and being met with the fresh fragrances of pumpkins, candy canes, or fresh floral notes. While your interior design at the Lake of the Ozarks is partly based on the look of your home, the way your home smells always plays a huge role. When your family comes home to the wonderful fall fragrances, they'll be ready to pull out the flannels and have a bonfire in the backyard.

Keep Them Organized Seasonally

Just as you keep your Christmas decor organized together, you'll want to keep the rest of your seasonal decor together. Don't mix fall and spring, otherwise, you'll be digging for ages trying to remember which box you put your pumpkins in. Better yet, organize everything in clear plastic totes so that you can quickly see which season you've got in which box. Do you want to be really organized? Stack them in order of the next season coming, that way the one you need is always on top!

Update Your Pantry

Okay ... so this may not actually pertain to your home, but the best way to make your home feel like a new season is when it smells like a new season. Stock up your pantry with plenty of baked goods that scream of pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, and other luxurious spices that invigorate your senses. If you have to attend any events where bringing food is required, you'll be glad you have those items on hand. Not to mention, when the cool weather hits, the desire to bake something amazing might hit as well *wink*. Make your home feel like home through the foods that welcome your guests into it.
