Gorgeous home decor ideas for every season


Emphasize the season by going with colours like pale purple, pastel yellow, pink and eggshell blue. A few other springtime choices:

  • Decorate the windowsill with early blooming flowers like crocuses, tulips, and daffodils in small terracotta pots.
  • Opt for sheer curtains, tablecloths, and pillows that lighten up the look of a room. Look for plain, embroidered, or printed sheer designs that complement your interiors.
  • Rework your accessories. Clean winter dust off the shelves. Bring out floral china or clear glass, and switch out dark-coloured couch cushions for more cheerful tones.
  • Reorient furniture that centres on the fireplace towards a view of the garden instead.


Summer is a time for rich colours. Here's how to create a few summertime touches:

  • Laying a white linen slipcover over the couch will create a summery mood, especially if you use colourful cushions as accents.
  • Counteract summer's heat with cool hues: outdoor tables draped with blue and white are like a cool breeze in the garden.
  • Create a maritime flair by simply filling glass tubes with sand of different colours and grain sizes, and setting them out on the balcony.
  • Change your heavy oriental carpet for a light and natural sisal rug.
  • Replace your fireplace logs with white candles of different heights and sizes.
  • Arrange sunflowers in glass vases and light them up with lanterns at dusk to add a warm, decorative element to garden parties or barbecues on the deck.


With no effort, you can decorate your house or apartment with foliage and fruit from field and forest:

  • Echo the changing colours of the leaves with accents in warm shades of orange and red. Dark green and harvest gold are also the perfect match for warm autumnal hues.
  • Let fall usher in soft, textured fabrics like suede, velvet, and felt. Satin in fall colours adds glitz to table decorations.
  • Place decorative elements such as fresh or dried leaves, chestnuts, acorns, or beechnuts in plain bowls to lend a little beauty to tables, sideboards, and windowsills.
  • Create autumnal table decorations from pumpkins, dried wheat stalks, corn cobs and gourds: simply spread them out on the table.
  • Looking to create an edible fall accent piece? One easy concept is to place vibrant red apples and juicy pears into a large glass bowl to turn it into an ornamental arrangement.


Even though it may be cold outside, you can create a cozy atmosphere in your home with these tips:

  • Bring ice and snow to mind with white, turquoise, and bluish-green. Of course, the true colour of winter is snow white, which can be beautifully combined with other seasonal colours.
  • Alternatively, chase the winter chill out of your home with rich shades of purple, gold, and red.
  • Use winter decor fabrics like soft wool, luxurious satin, chenille, and lambswool. Incorporate them via pillows, throws, and drapes.
  • Add warmth to a room (literally and figuratively) by swapping sheer curtains for heavy draperies.
  • Use carpet tiles for a quick and inexpensive way to warm up the floors of your living room or bedroom.
  • Make a colourful and cozy winter bolster pillow by sewing two scarves together lengthwise, stuffing them with batting, and securing the ends with ribbons.
  • Grab attention with decorative glassware like vases or lanterns. They contrast pleasantly with rustic-looking decorations made of wood.
  • Opt for a vase full of winterberries or evergreen twigs, or a bowl filled with glittering Christmas ball decorations, apples, or oranges for a nice winter touch.
