Keep Your Home Decor Aesthetic While Still Incorporating Those Seasonal Feels!

It’s that time of year where everyone is decorating for fall, and soon enough, winter and Christmas too! It can be such a heavy lift to completely swap out all your decor for each seasonal change. Not to mention, the feel of your house totally changes too! That’s why we’re huge fans of incorporating seasonal decor that already matches your home aesthetic and design. What’s that entail? Glad you asked! Today we’re going to look at a few different factors: color palette, accessories, and scent.

Color Palette

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to completely change your color palette for the season! Not everyone wants bright reds, oranges, and yellows in their home for the fall season. We can totally relate. That’s why we’re all about finding pieces and subtle changes that bring the spirit of the season into the space without compromising your personal style.

Accessories

Accessories are the best way to accomplish your subtle changes for the season. Try swapping out your usual throw pillows for something more seasonal. This doesn’t have to be something big and bold like a throw pillow with a huge pumpkin on it. We love plaid and cable knit pillows for someone looking for a cozy fall feel. Cable knit pillows are especially great as they can easily transition into winter too! Adding a couple of extra beautiful throw blankets is also a great option to cozy up your home for the cooler seasons. They add texture, color, and snuggly warm when needed. Dried hydrangeas and white pumpkins are some of our other favorite accessories to add a nice subtle pop of fall. They can go with almost any decor color palette and are quick and easy changes to make!

Scent

Scent is one of the easiest ways to change the feel of a room without even changing anything! Fall scented candles and wax melts instantly give you that warm, cozy fall feeling without even lifting a finger on your decor. Same with balsam and the like for the winter season. If you do choose to change up your decor, changing up your scent really adds that extra touch to finish off your seasonal wonderland!



Winter Gathering

When creating this Winter Gathering concept, Parsimony Inspired's vision was to embrace the color palette of winter but balance the look with soft feminine accents. We created a design with hues of creams, greys and greens, a palette that we softened with flowing fabrics, gold accents and mixed textures.

Tucked in the mountains of the Berkshires, Bloom Meadows was the perfect backdrop for this romantic winter shoot. A space with beautiful lines, natural elements and neutral colors, our designs felt rooted in the space and allowed our soft color palette to pop against the beautiful white walls. We loved the venue's design so much we had our invitation designer Kim Small of With Wild and Grace draw the venue and add it to the elegant invitation suite's design. One of our favorite ways to add a custom detail. 

Our bride was styled in a stunning chiffon A-line Lilian West gown. The illusion V-neck and the detail of the lace appliqués also brought a feminine touch to the bridal look, while the long sleeves and chapel length train were the perfect look for a winter wedding. The hair style framed our bride's face with greenery touches while soft makeup with a smokey eye gave a bit of drama to the final look. To add a little sparkle to our bride's style, she wore a stunning engagement ring and wedding band set designed by Megan Thorne and stunning hand crafted moonstone earrings designed by Pamela Froman.

When it came to working with floral designer Stacey Radcliffe of The Tangled Grapevine, we knew that we wanted the flowers to be filled with different types of greenery, our favorite trend for 2017. We incorporated greenery in every aspect of the design from the aerial floral installation above our reception table to greenery in our bride's hair. Stacey created a lush presentation bouquet filled with white Anemone, silver Brunia, white Lisianthus, peach Spray Roses, white Tulips, seeded Eucalyptus, Ruscus, Asparagus Fern and Gooseneck Loosestrifes.

From the serene Berkshire winter setting, the soft and romantic invitation suite with it's perfect vellum wax seal to the amazing marbled cakedesigned by the talented Pete of Pete's Sweets, we balanced winter's neutral palette and elements of nature with soft fabrics, feminine touches and meaningful details that would make you want to spend a winter's eve snuggled up with the one you love.
