Experts suggest seasonal renovations

You’ve heard of spring cleaning, how about spring redecorating? It might seem a little extreme to totally change your interior decorating with every season, but Pat Elliott, an interior decorator and owner of The Borders Design House interior decorating firm, suggests that a few small changes in color palette, furniture accessories, or style can do a lot to give your house a fresh, new feeling and help you throw off the winter blahs.

Choose versatile colors

Spring and summer colors differ from autumn and winter colors, according to Elliot. The latter two seasons favor darker, heavier colors which are meant to create a cozy atmosphere. The former two seasons favor colors that look great in both bright sunlight and stormy, cloudy days. And while white is a good neutral color that many people opt to go with because of how stunning it looks in bright sunlight, Elliot said, "whites and cool pastels . . . are rather more chilly when rain is beating on the windows." Therefore, she suggested, it is important to "incorporate flashes of warmer pastels or the zingy citrus shades popular this year."

Out with the old, in with the new

The style and accessories you might change up for the warmer months will depend a little on your existing style and what type of entertaining you might be doing. You’ll have a much different style if your house plays host to four kids and a muddy dog than it might if you’re used to inviting over close work colleagues and friends. Elliot said that all it really takes to shake up the feel of the room is to "take away all existing accessories, to remove window dressings entirely and, if feasible, to rearrange furniture around a different focal point." Once you’ve stripped the space down to the bare minimum, you can build it back up with new drapes, pictures, and pillows.
