How to Decorate Your Living Room with Easy Seasonal Make Overs in Mind

April 29, 2023

Everyone likes to decorate their homes for the seasonal holidays. However, it isn’t always easy to create that designer, glossy magazine look that is so desired. This is because, as you will probably understand, these locations are selected due to the color schemes of the rooms already fitting in with the look that the designer has in mind - when in reality, it can be an entirely different scenario.

So, when it comes to decorating your living room, you should make it easy for yourself to create these designer looks and not only impress yourself but also wow all of your guests in the process.

#1 Choose color palettes carefully

Choose color palettes carefully; although white on walls can look good in some circumstances, it can also look cold, unwelcoming, and stark. So maybe the answer is to go for an off-white or a pastel shade that will go with any other color. Ceilings can be painted the same shade as the walls if need be. While flooring certainly looks better when providing a warm wooden glow.

However, if you are particularly keen on carpets in your living room, then a neutral color without a pattern but maybe a texture would be best. It is a brave individual indeed that opts for a white or pale cream carpet in their living room, and these shades are probably better left to a bedroom where shoes will not be worn and food will not be consumed.

#2 Keep backgrounds smooth and flat

Backgrounds such as walls and ceilings should be kept smooth and flat as this can steer the eye away from the items that you want to showcase and draw attention to. If you have a large expanse of wall, think about hanging art or a large mirror with a chunky frame to break up the space. These can either be changed as the seasons progress or enhanced by embellishments that are specific to the season you are celebrating.

#3 Add touches of color that can easily be replaced

Add touches of color that are easily replaced but are associated with the season that you are currently in. For instance, exquisite living room rugs, cushions, and throws, along with colored ornaments, can bring a room together and yet still be versatile enough that they can be showcased at certain times of the year and stored during others.

Constantly having a store of items that can be brought out of storage and placed around your living room will keep it fresh while all the time limiting the amount of money that you are spending on your seasonal makeovers.

Final thoughts

It is a good idea to create a mood board before you start decorating so that you have a plan of what you are trying to achieve during every season that you want to celebrate. Decorating your home and in particular, your living room at these times of year can add to the experience and the joy that is felt, especially to children and visitors.
