It is now cool and crisp in Kansas City. There are very simple ways to make seasonal changes without going "Over the Top" These images show that you can mix it up and also not necessarily use fall colors. The mantle setting includes a 3-dimensional work of art by Michael Pesselato. You can barely notice that next to the fireplace sits a Country French Armoire one of my favorite pieces of furniture. In the Hallway setting, this could also work for spring, though the rug has a lot of warm, rich color as does the oriental chest. My own work of abstract art has a Larson Juhl frame from the "Zen" collection.
