(StatePoint) — A seasonal home makeover doesn't need to cost a fortune or be difficult to execute. Quick, easy and innova- tive ideas can give your home the fall flair needed to celebrate the season. "Seasonal décor updates should jive with your home's style, while also adding something extra to the mix," said Eric Cohler, who has been listed as a top interna- tional designer by House Beauti- ful and Elle Décor magazines. "Keep it easy though, so that when the season is over, you won't end up with a lack of moti- vation to refresh and a space that feels passé." To add autumn elements to your home without completely revamping your interior, consid- er these ideas: Rotating Gallery A digital photo display is the easiest way to showcase seasonal- ly suitable photos of friends and family. In fall, that means Hal- loween portraits, autumn picnics, trips to the pumpkin patch, and back-to-school photos. Consider rotating the artwork displayed in your home to high- light seasonal colors. Whether you want to get spooky for Hal- loween or focus on fall's natural hues, this task won't take long to do and will greatly impact the look and feel of each room. Pops of Color "With relatively little effort, you can add bright, bold colors to your home by swapping out the knobs and handles on your cabi- nets, credenzas and other furni- ture," Cohler said. Seasonal sets of cabinet hard- ware can keep the look fresh in your home. All you need is a screwdriver and a few hours. A free web-based application, Splash by Amerock, offers a new interactive design and shopping experience by allowing you to truly customize hardware for cabinets and furniture. The inter- active site and first of its kind product line allows you to test various colors and shapes of cab- inetry hardware and view the dif- ferent looks on different style and color cabinets. From kitchens to bathrooms to bedrooms and living areas, you can make your rooms pop with bold colors. Think orange, purple and black for Halloween flair, or greens, reds and browns for a nat- ural effect. Hardware is easy to swap out and you can give your home a fun, fresh fall makeover inexpensively and without much hassle.
