Summer design is usually associated with flowers, sunrises, and a bright/happy/sunny garden.
Summer colors are generally bright and bold.
Some bold and bright hues will help you offer a summery look to the space you want to design.
Yellowish background, white furniture, lush plants - all these and more are your keys to summer home design.
Other minor elements of summer design are:
Maintaining an airy and bright space/Adding accessories made of rattan/Adding a dash of color to your rooms, and more.
Winter is all about coziness.
Try to give your home a warm, comforting, and cozy look.
You can start doing so with comfy and clean sofas/loungers. Another excellent example is a fireplace that will be placed in the center of the living room, providing a feeling of peace and warmth.
Blue, black, Etc. - These are your go-to colors.
Winter colors are usually natural and slightly gloomy. Moreover, the guiding principle in winter design usually combines natural and simple elements.
Other minor elements of winter design are:
Pillows and blankets on the living room sofas/Furry and comfortable slippers/ hanging snowflakes to drape over windows, doorways, and walls/String Lights/ Walls Decorations reminiscent of winters, such as snow pictures and more/Pinecones.
Now, as for the fall and spring designs, both are slightly more subtle versions of summer and winter. Fall is linked to winter, and spring to summer. You will better understand these styles by delving deeper into summer and winter styles.
1. Step By Step.
One of the problems with seasonal changes design is the misconception that it is possible and even preferred to enforce things/changes and finish with everything quickly. Unfortunately - this is not the way things work! On the contrary - a gradual change will be much more appropriate in most cases.
This insight is super relevant in the context of our topic - A seasonal design change will be much smoother if done gradually and calculatedly than with complete suddenness.
'And how do you do that?' You're probably asking.
Well, As the well-known saying goes - Take it slow.
Create a gradual and slow timeline.
There is no point in jumping on the bandwagon and applying all those seasonal changes in a flash. Do things in a graded manner and stay motivated! If you choose to speed things up, you will probably quit too soon since there is indeed a lot to do.
Do things in a graded manner and stay motivated!
Some tips on how to make such a change gradually.
Set a schedule that will help you with your design change process. Do not wait until the last minute. You must figure out what is required and plan your schedule accordingly.
And now, as for making the process smoother:
Engage in not-so-significant changes. Ones that do not require particularly massive action.
For example, suppose you make sure to follow the well-planned and convenient schedule discussed above. In that case, all you need is a light effort in replacing 'summer accessories' with ''winter accessories' (as explained regarding the design characteristics of each season) rather than an action that requires a lot of work and energy (such as repainting your house).
Even if you have already started a significant design change operation, try as much as possible to do it in a graded way that will only partially exhaust you. Our recommendation is to divide the effort required into smaller parts.
2. Ideal Timing.
Let's face it. Despite our best efforts, avoiding some inconveniences in the seasonal design change process is impossible. Indeed, some required actions burden us no matter how much we try to lighten the process.
Smart time management is the best way to manage this ideally.
For example, suppose you've decided it's about time for a significant renovation within your house; it would be best to schedule it for the transition period. That way, you will kill two birds with one stone, and your renovation works will somehow express the seasonal change from a design point of view.
Timing is everything!
3. Focus On The Simple Things.
An ancient Chinese scholar once said, "Focus on the simple things."
If you're rubbing your head in skepticism right now, it's because you're right - no Chinese scholar has ever said such a quote. We invented it right now. But the guideline principle is still valid - usually, doing ten simple small things is much easier than one massive task.
It's all about the little things!
Apply this principle when transitioning your home decor in light of season change.
Please start with the simple things.
Care for some examples?
Scattering pillows around your house, providing a warm look/changing fabrics/scattering bowls of relevant seasonal fruits/adjusting seasonal scents/matching indoor vegetation pertinent to the desired season.
All these and more (and we refer you again to the links above, which expand further on this matter) - are just small and simple changes (which are very different, for example, from a complete house painting or construction to a fireplace, which are complex operations) That will help you a lot in your efforts to change your home's seasonal design gradually and, most importantly, do it smoothly.
Think about it for a moment: one small change and another small change (without you putting too much effort) - Ultimately leading to a big difference - and that is your ultimate goal - Smooth execution.
Breaking large tasks into more manageable pieces is a great idea for other areas of life, not just home design. You can read more about it here.
4. Reinvent Yourself.
One of the most powerful tools you can use whenever you want to create something new is to link it to your personal development.
At the end of the day, the instinct for personal growth lies within us just by being human. Therefore, if you make the right decision by wanting to get better and develop - It can promote you in many areas of life. Designing your home is just one of them.
"How is that relevant to our topic?', you probably ask.
Well, nowadays, we know the importance of doing something new daily. The feeling of freshness and renewal obtained by doing so is quite significant and helps the person's peace of mind and sense of growth.
Try directly linking changing your home-season design to this desirable feeling of renewal.
Thank us later.
After all, redesign is supposed to be an exciting action.
Indeed, A sense of refreshment and renewal accompanies the transition from season to season, and there is nothing more communicative with a sense of personal development and growth than seasonal design change. Therefore, linking the two will be a significant boost in making the seasonal transition smoother.
