Warm Up to Color and Texture
"I'm seeing a lot of people turn to colors like orange and deep red, colors that had been unfashionable for a while. To help delineate the seasons in your home, use pillows. Get your big statement piece, like the couch, in a solid, neutral color; you can do wonderfully light linen pillows in the summer and then exchange them for something a bit more wintry—like plaid, corduroy or faux fur. Some pillows are as inexpensive as $20 or $30, and they instantly change the vibe of a room."
