Yves Saint Laurent famously said, “fashions fade, style is eternal.” As one of the world’s most successful fashion designers, it’s safe to say he knew what he was talking about.

There’s nothing like a seasonal update to put a spring in your step around the home, whether it’s a new cushion combination on the sofa, updated wall art, or a few new sculptural pieces to display on the bookshelf. Having achieved serial-seasonal-update status long ago, we know the best way to keep your home fresh without doing an entire [...]
