I love window-shopping in home decor stores, but I usually come out empty-handed because 1) I can be picky, 2) I don't want to clutter up our minimalist space with too many knickknacks, and 3) we already have the basics. Despite my urge to keep things simple though, I have an even more overwhelming urge to change things up a bit to reflect the changing seasons. My compromise between the two resulted in chrysanthemums from my mom's garden and a few mini pumpkins scattered around the condo: pretty decorations while they last, natural and biodegradable, and therefore guilt-free, when it's time to get rid of them. The new pair of bird-shaped salt-and-pepper shakers (serving a purely ornamental purpose on the side table) was courtesy of my little brother (so thoughtful!).
Since my last home decor update, not much has changed really. We bought a glossy white dining table and some dining chairs (one orange, three white). The flatscreen TV and media stand are set up, so we spend a lot of rainy nights in watching Netflix with a lit scented candle and a glass of wine.I guess this means we're settling in!
What do you do to shift your home decor from season to season?
