I love the idea of swapping out seasons to change the décor in your house. I want to get to that point with our home. Where it just feels inviting year round. I am one of those people who moves the furniture around every couple of months, I get bored with things being the same all the time. I figure that altering the decor with little things will make a big difference and not require a lot of storage space or money to do.I have been working on doing this starting small with place-mats for the holidays that I put on all sorts of flat surfaces and then tablecloths that are different for each season. Now I've been working on smell.
I read about the idea of finding a signature sent for the season in your home and I really like that idea. I’ve been toying with the idea of defuses and finding a nice holiday sent maybe a cooking smell (vanilla or something cinnamon or a heavier floral) I'm thinking that I may make my own all you need is a few reeds, a container, and the liquid. Smell is connected to memory and can change your mood. I love the idea of changing the mood in each room with a different sent.
