Our bodies need the feeling of seasonal changes, and so do our homes. Those in-between times give way from scorching heat to cooler breezes before the leaves turn.
Can you see the dish of dusty seashells on the coffee table waiting around until you replace them with pinecones and acorns? Give your coffee table a break between the seasonal decor.

Clear the room
Let the table breathe and clear the surface. Gather up all the decorations in the room, clean, and store away for next year.
Use white for all your vases, decorative bowls, and glassware for decorating. Since we’re working on between seasonal decor, use white or clear. If you’re low on white, use chalk-based paint to update glassware. Or thrift store shelves are overloaded with white “decorware.”
Use greens real or fake. I use fake since I can’t grow anything. A simple white pot with a green plant works wonders any time of the year.
Bring in nature. Gather branches from the yard or while walking the dog — place in one of those white vases.
If you’ve done each tip so far, you’ll notice a neutral look is forming. Continue by adding creams and browns. Lean a worn cutting board on the mantel. Then place an antique cream chipped crate with a small white dish inside.
Keep the decorating between the seasons simply.
Keep the changes in your home and body simple. Breathe.
