We don’t know how it’s possible, but fall is finally upon us.
Cue the pumpkin-spiced lattes, s’mores, and cozy outfits! With the transition of the seasons, now is also a great time to swap out your home decor. But it doesn’t need to be a ton of work to revamp your space—there are plenty of simple seasonal switches to refresh your home for the changing weather, and we’re here to help.
Not sure where to get started? Here are some of the best ways to transition your home decor with the seasons!
1. Start with the Floor
For a fast, low-effort way to make a big impact when changing your style for the season, start by switching up your rugs. From Halloween to fall, winter to the holidays, trust us when we say there’s a Ruggable rug for each and every occasion. With Ruggable’s interchangeable, two-piece system, all you have to do is peel your Ruggable rug cover from its pad and switch it out for something new.
When decorating for Halloween, embrace traditional motifs like skeletons, witches’ hats, and pumpkins. Our Bone Dance Black Rug is the perfect way to accent an entryway for impending trick or treaters!
For fall months, opt for a more subtle look by picking a rug that contains warm seasonal hues of oranges, browns and creams, like the Broken Stripe Rust Orange Rug.
When dressing up your space for holidays, try going big and bold with a festive design like the Dress Stewart Tartan Red Rug. The rich cardinal red and green colors in a traditional tartan plaid pattern will make a surefire statement to get you in the holiday spirit.
2. Play with Textures
Switching up the textiles in your home, like pillows, blankets, and rugs, is a no-brainer when it comes to updating your space for the seasons. From thicker textures for fall to airy fabrics for spring, textiles are a fun (and often under-utilized) aspect of the home to swap up.
For Halloween and fall, try rustic materials such as burlap, linen, or flannel in deep, warm colors to add a woodsy touch to your home. You can also add dark, gauzy fabrics to a table, mirror, or a mantle for a wickedly supernatural aesthetic. Our Checkerboard Soft Black Re-Jute Rug is a bold yet welcoming backdrop to complete the rustic look.
Winter, on the other hand, is the perfect time for ultra-cozy textiles like chunky knits and faux furs. Try layering our Sage Green Plush Rug to create a comfortable sitting area that’s sure to stand out.
3. Forage for Foliage
Seasonal foliage is a must when it comes to transitioning your home from season to season. It brings about a homey feel and will instantly brighten up any space! And if you’re not sure what types of foliage are “in season”, we’re here to help you get started.
While pumpkins will always be our go-to for autumn decorating, if you live in an area where the leaves change colors in the fall, another easy and inexpensive way to decorate is by adding some red or orange leafy branches. Dried arrangements also add a charming touch to any space, and are so low maintenance they can last for years if stored properly! Pair your fall foliage with the calming autumn leaves of our Aurelia Amber Rug.
In winter months, there’s nothing better than the nostalgic scent of pine to remind you of the holidays. Adding evergreen garlands of pine to tables, mantles, and doorways is a stylish and classic way to fill your home with the smell of Christmas. Or, if short on space, opt for a small rosemary tree in the kitchen—you can even decorate it with mini ornaments! Just make sure to sprinkle in some sparkle with a colorful rug, like our Holiday Lights Creme Rug.
4. Add Some Color
Another great way for transitioning your home decor for the seasons is by adding new colors. Stick with a neutral palette and find a “pop” of color that will complement your home and speaks to the season at hand.
Halloween is all about a dark, moody aesthetic. Decorate with deep hues by adding accents in hues of deep purple, black, or gothic emerald green. Our Witchcraft Rug will add a supernatural spin to any space. And since it’s washable, it works perfectly in this jewel-toned kitchen.
Autumn is a time for feelings of warmth and togetherness, while finally embracing some cooler weather! Take inspiration from nature and opt for fall colors like brown, taupes, red, orange, or cream. This vintage-style Verena Dark Wood Rug acts as an eye-catching neutral, allowing brighter hues to stand out in your home.
Decorating for the holidays is an opportunity to let your individuality shine through; dress your space in shades of deep forest greens, burgundy, or cranberry for a traditional aesthetic, or go for silver, navy and neutral tones for a more modern, funky vibe. Plus, the saturated evergreens and deep blue of our Buffalo Plaid Blackwatch Rug pair perfectly with a cozy blanket, a cup of hot cocoa and an adorable pup. What more could you ask for?
