If you have been a reader of my blog for a while than you’ve probably heard me say once or twice before that when I decorate our home I change my decor up more seasonally so I get the most use out of it. Unless the mood strikes to refresh a space, I simply stick to the same key pieces, and make subtle changes as the seasons change. Today I’m going to show you how I do this in our entryway. It’s a simple area, with not much too it, but even so, changing things up seasonally makes a big impact.
First lets take a look at the space during Spring time.
With leaves budding all over the trees, I grab some faux stems in a fresh green that help set the mood for what the season is about to do outside. Not only does it help grow anticipation for seeing fresh pops of green after a long winter, it resembles the season we are in. I opt for a lighter throw pillow, this one in a pretty chambray blue hue, that helps set the mood for spring.
Next Summer :
For summer, I always keep a fresh vase of flowers from our yard. My white hydrangea bushes go crazy in the summer, so I always have plenty to pick from, to keep fresh flowers in the house. A simple swap with the throw pillows, this one a navy and white ticking stripe, helps add a little summer flair with a subtle nautical touch. Just a simple swap up to help feel the summer vibe when you first walk into our house.
For Fall :
I clip some branches from our yard. These get changed up as frequently as our leaves change outside. I keep the same throw pillow arrangement but add in a faux or real pumpkin, in this photo faux.
I’m reminded that I don’t have to do anything big or over the top to welcome in fall. I love that I can place a pumpkin just about anywhere and it instantly feels like fall.
Winter gets the most change. Especially as I start to decorate for Christmas. I replace the pumpkin for a faux tree, decorated with tiny silver ornaments. I take our reclaimed wood frame off the wall, and replace it with our Advent calendar. This is a perfect spot to add a little christmas decor into our entryway, without getting in the way of a place for us to put on our boots, or unload from coming in out of the cold.
I love this little spot in our kitchen. Since we don’t have a mudroom, you walk right into our kitchen, so this space provides shoe storage and mudroom functionality that is also pleasing to the eye. I believe that no matter how big or small the space is that design and function can go hand in hand.
