Seasonal Refresh: Summer to Winter Furniture Transition in Texas Homes

Embracing the change of seasons in Frisco, TX, is not just about adjusting our wardrobes; it's also about transforming our living spaces. As we transition from the balmy days of summer to the cozy embrace of winter, our homes can reflect this change through thoughtful furniture and decor updates. In this blog, we'll guide you through this seasonal transition, drawing inspiration from renowned designers and successful blogs, while adding our unique Frisco touch.

Transitioning Living Room Decor

The living room, a focal point of any home, should evolve with the seasons.

  • Swap Out Throw Pillows and Blankets: Exchange bright summer colors with warmer, richer tones. Think plush fabrics like velvet or faux fur to add warmth.
  • Area Rugs: Replace light summer rugs with thicker, more textured ones. Rugs in deep hues or with seasonal patterns can instantly warm up the space.
  • Furniture Rearrangement: Consider rearranging your furniture to create a cozier setting. Positioning sofas and chairs closer together encourages intimate gatherings.  If your home has a fire place then make it the star.


Dining Room Updates for Winter Gatherings

The dining room, a gathering spot and hub for holiday feasts, deserves some special attention, especially around the holidays.  Heck, it might be starving for attention any other time of year.  Now is the perfect time to let it shine! 

  • Table Settings: Shift to darker, richer table linens and centerpieces that reflect the winter theme.  Did you know that we sell tons of accessories that would look amazing and could help you transition your dining table with little effort.
  • Addition of a Sideboard or Buffet: If you don’t already have one, consider a sideboard for extra storage and display space for holiday dishes and decorations.  We have access to the most jaw dropping options and would love to help you find your statement piece.


Bedroom Comfort for Cold Nights

Transform your bedroom into a warm winter retreat with a few simple changes.

  • Bedding: Switch to heavier, warmer bedding. Layering quilts or adding a thick comforter can make all the difference.  Plus layering your comforter on top of a fluffy down comforter is a complete aesthetic game changer!
  • Warm Lighting: Soft, warm lighting can make the room feel snug and cozy. Consider adding table lamps with warm-toned bulbs.  We love using vintage Edison bulbs in our side table lamps.  Such a quick and easy atmosphere changer.


Seasonal Decor in Entryways and Halls

First impressions count, and your entryway should welcome you into the season.

  • Hallway Runners and Mats: Opt for runners with winter motifs or heavier materials.  Consider layering your area rugs for a warm and rich designer look.
  • Seasonal Accents: Add a few winter-themed decor pieces like wreaths or seasonal artwork.  We don't recommend you go overboard on this but a few pieces splashed here or there really sets the tone.


Adapting Your Outdoor Spaces

While outdoor entertaining might be limited, you can still enjoy your outdoor spaces.

  • Patio Furniture Covers: Protect your summer furniture with durable covers.  You might want to consider one of our machine washable options.
  • Outdoor Heaters or Fire Pits: These can extend the usability of your outdoor space into the cooler months.
