Interior Designer Amy Snyder of Sun Pine Homes, a custom home builder and developer in Prescott, Arizona writes about bringing seasonal sensibility to design in her new article, Use seasonal accents to complement your home’s good looks. View it on her company’s website, http://www.graniteparkaz.com.
According to Snyder, seasonal color can tie the indoors and outdoors. “I like to integrate the indoors with the outdoors, and light and colors all change with the season,” Snyder said.
The article includes advice ranging from classic to edgy, including these tips:
- When it gets cold, replace spring and summertime arrangements of flowers and foliage with vases of dried grasses, cattails, and pods.
- Pine cones and interesting rocks work all year long. Arrange them in a container and then add seasonal accents like fall leaves, flowers or dried grass
- Fill a bowl with seasonal fruit and vegetables. In autumn and winter, gourds and squash are excellent bets, as are oranges in the Christmas season. Large blown-glass bowls come in a variety of colors to match every season.
- Start your garden indoors. Plants like basil, tomato and peppers, which can be transplanted into the summer garden, make beautiful springtime accents on south-facing windowsills.
Using classic and even avant-garde seasonal accents to freshen the look of your home is not only inexpensive and inspiring, it’s also an effective way to maintain a connection to the great outdoors.
