Modern home decor is constantly changing, so how can you keep your home looking classy without paying high-end prices? Create a home theme that can change with the seasons.
While a bright colorful room might look great when it’s summer, that same color scheme will clash with richer winter colors. Avoid this problem by creating a space that works for all seasons. Then add small seasonal elements to match the changing mood.
We’ll walk you through it!
Autumn is a time of changing colors. Take a hint from nature and add in the stunning colors that appear during this time. Rich browns, reds, oranges, and yellows are all beautiful elements to incorporate into your room.
If you have simple cream-colored walls feel free to add strong accent pieces in the room. A dark brown rug and red pillowcases would complement the room nicely.
However, if your walls are a darker color, don’t add in as much brown. Instead, focus only on lighter accent colors. For example, you could add a happy yellow vase or light orange throw pillows.
These changes will help the room feel like autumn without breaking the budget.
During winter the light that comes into the house is stunning. The sun sets at a lower angle and creates beautiful colors. Unfortunately, the light doesn’t last long.
On the shortest day of the year, the light only lasts about nine and a half hours. That means that most of the time it will feel dark.
Because of this, you’ll want to avoid adding dark elements to your rooms. Instead, brighten the area up with light winter colors. These include soft blues, white, and light greens.
Many of these colors are trending for 2018. Check out the hottest interior decorating colors for this year.

Spring represents new life, and after being cooped up in all winter it’s a good idea to bring life to your modern home decor as well.
During this time, the light that comes into your house will be increasing every day. Complement the light with bright colors, such as teal, turquoise, lime green, and more.
Indoor plants, bright throws, and mirrors will all add this light and energy to the room.
Finally, we have summer. Summer colors include rich blues, greens, and soft pinks or purple. During this season there is still plenty of light coming in, so that means you don’t have to worry about your rooms appearing too dark.
However, with every dark color, you add be sure to balance it with a softer hue. Navy blue works great with soft pinks or greys. They also help the room to feel cooler, which is a major benefit when the average temperature in the United States hits 72 degrees Fahrenheit.
