You can use these ideas not only for the upcoming holiday season, but also they will work great to keep any space fresh and current.

A bounty of harvest-season accents: The tulip centerpiece and red- and white-checkered tablecloth look out of place. There’s a chill in the night air, and your summertime embellishments will soon be as appropriate as a Christmas tree in July.

To decorate your home for fall and winter, Robin Brechbuhler of Brechbuhler Interior Designs in North Canton, Ohio, has some suggestions.

• Paint the walls a different color. Remember, if you use a color other than a neutral shade, it can limit you.

• Buy dishware for the summer and something different for the winter.

Change the artwork on your walls. Thomas Kinkade, for example, has a holiday collection that depicts wintry scenes.

Desiree’s image is also a perfect example of this theme.
