Seasonal decor lives in many homeowners' minds. Where do I start? How do I decorate for the holidays? What if I just want a space to explore decorating ideas, like throw pillows, on a rotating basis?

These are just a few questions that can be answered with a few quick tips.

Mild seasons

Decor ideas aren't limited to just interior decorating tips. Your front porch or yard is as great a place to express your ideas, as long as you keep the seasonal elements in mind.

Materials that can withstand intense weather can preserve your canvas and help your decor last. Once you've leveraged the basics of your environment, such as watching weather patterns and finding the right material, it's time to leverage the season itself.

For spring, use local plants and natural elements as outdoor decor. If you want to bring the elements indoors without the outdoor remnants, such as dirt or critters, borrow your outdoor color palette and incorporate bright accents.

Do the same for fall decor. Just slide down the color wheel to the warmer hues, such as reds, oranges and browns.

Extreme seasons

More extreme seasons, like winter and summer, may need a few extra home decor elements.

Incorporate elements most associated with these seasons, like mason jars and citrus during the summer and cocoa mugs and evergreen decor during the winter.

Holidays

The holidays can be fun, yet tricky. Keeping a holiday decorating schedule on hand next to your daily calendar is an excellent way to manage the waters of decorating for the holiday.
