Seasonal Artwork?

Pin it button big

My mom loves decorating according to the seasons and their corresponding holidays. When my sisters and I were growing up she would the house with American flags for the 4th of July, decorate the tables with real and ceramic pumpkins in the fall, deck the halls with boughs of evergreen after Thanksgiving, and after each interminable New Hampshire winter, break out pastel Easter eggs come spring. All of this seems within the realm of normal seasonal decorating (especially when you have young kids), but she also did something I've rarely seen anyone else do: she changed the artwork on nearly all the walls to reflect the changing seasons!

We here at Apartment Therapy often talk about decorating for the seasons (see Kate's 8 Fun Finds to Bring a Little Summertime into Your Home for inspiration). Changing out the pillows on your sofa or adding a colorful vase is a fun, easy way to freshen up your decor without spending a lot of money or time re-decorating. For a lot of people, though, artwork is an integral part of their overall room design. It's hard enough finding the one perfect piece of art for a room--let alone 3 or 4 more pieces for the same spot for the rest of the year!

So, my questions for you are: Do you change out the pictures on your walls according to the seasons? Do you think doing so is a great idea or carrying the seasonal re-decorating thing just one step too far?
