In this post, I will be sharing 5 tips to easily decorate your home throughout the year.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes home is just that.
Inspirations cease and I don’t have it in me to decorate.
If you feel that way sometimes, raise your hand!
As much as I love home decor and all the beautiful refineries that speak to my soul.
There are times I am too busy to care about what my home looks like but I still want my home to look cozy and put together.
How do I accomplish this?
By simply implementing these 5 tips.
And I am passing them on to you so that hopefully they can make your life easier, too.
Here are the 5 tips to easily decorate your home throughout the year.
Tip #1: Add some live plants
This one is super easy because these plants are from the grocery store.
I recently went shopping at Trader Joe’s.
Throughout the year, they have the most amazing floral arrangements, living herbs, and plants.
Now, mind you, I am not a green thumb.
But this time around, I was so impressed with the collection of desert plants that require minimal watering or sun.
I picked up a few.
A few weeks went by, and they are thriving!
So, I bought a few more!
Home plants intrigue me because I learned that they give your home clean oxygen and reduce contaminants.
Not only are they pretty to look at, but they are good for you, too!
Now that is a win, don’t you think?
With sickness going around, that seemed very appealing.
So, I say more plants, please!
Tip #2: Change out prints.
This simple trick has been my go-to for a few years.
I purchase prints from Etsy and get copies printed at my local Fed Ex Print Shop.
I have a stack of them now, rolled up with a rubberband for easy storage.
It is easy to pick out fresh season-appropriate prints from my stash that gives my home a new look.
Like the summer prints on my gallery wall.
The fun thing is I didn’t have to change the placement of the frames as we went into fall.
That was easy!
Here is the same gallery wall decorated for fall.
All I did was change out the prints.
This was an easy transition into another season.
Here are some photos below of my staircase.
I love refreshing this area throughout the year.
The biggest impact is the prints.
They add a wow factor. Don’t you think?
So, that is my biggest tip to easily decorate your home throughout the year.
Tip #3: Change seasonal dishes on the wall.
Hanging dishes on the wall of my guest bathroom has added that cozy vintage vibe I love!
As shown in the photos above the simple change of red plates for Christmas, brown plates for a Fall theme, and blue plates for the Spring and Summer seasons made for a quick makeover.
You don’t have to add new nails to the wall or rearrange.
It’s a quick and easy swap that takes a few minutes.
Now, that is super easy decorating, in my opinion.
Tip #4: Change pillow covers.
The photos above show the easy swap of the mustard yellow fall pillow to the green and blue striped farmhouse pillow for Christmas and other seasons.
I’ve acquired a nice collection of pillow covers over the years.
Having them folded and seeing all the colors of the season all together is a delightful sight.
It’s fun to pull from this collection and add a fresh new look to my home for the changing seasons throughout the year.
In the photos above is our antique sofa where I swapped out pillows for summer and Christmas.
I find this to be the easiest way to decorate my home throughout the year.
Investing in quality pillow inserts has been the key to getting that fluffed-up look with a swift karate chop at the top.
Feather-down pillow inserts are great for that!
But recently, I’ve been swapping out my feather-down pillows for ones I discovered a while back.
They are so nice and don’t have those prickly feathers poking through.
And they keep their shape and are firm when you lay against them on your bed, sofa, or chair.
I love them!
They are the Pillowflex Synthetic Down Pillow Insert.
Don’t think I’ve abandoned the fluffy feather-down pillows completely.
They are perfect pillows for decorating.
Here is a link to my favorite feather-down pillows, here.
Tip #5: Change out faux florals.
This one is my utmost favorite thing to do!
If I am in a funky mood or not feeling so well, all I have to do is grab some faux flowers from my seasonal bins, and my whole world is brighter.
Making floral arrangements is something I love!
I share some simple steps on how to arrange a floral arrangement here.
The link on how to simply put a floral arrangement together for Fall.
But the same steps would apply to all floral arrangements for every season.
Investing in good quality faux flowers is key to having a good collection to use throughout the year.
Lately, my favorite place to find cheap flowers has been Joann Fabrics.
They look realistic and have so many to choose from.
And then there’s Hobby Lobby, of course, which is across the street from Joann Fabrics in my area.
I reuse my flowers over and over again.
Some of my go-to florals are white and go well with my vintage-inspired home.
Here is a list of flowers to look for when you’re shopping for a good foundation that you can build from.
They can be mixed in when adding colorful flowers.
I love the wow factor of adding bright-colored flowers against a white wall or transferware.
Or take an ornate flower like a rose, peony, or hydrangea and have that be the only flower in the vase.
These 5 tips to easily decorate your home throughout the year will hopefully give you ideas for an easy transition through the seasons.
A home that is functional and has beautiful aesthetics that please the eye can bring peace to our day.
Bonus tip: Putting away seasonal decor for the next year saves time when life gets busy.
Here is a link to some storage bags I use to store my favorite decor.
I grab from my collection of seasonal decor that I have kept from years past and rearrange them around my home to look new.
That’s so fun!
