Do you think seasons never change in Florida?

Maybe you’re not paying attention. Seasons change here in Southwest Florida just as much as anywhere else. Maybe the change isn’t as dramatic as in other regions. Maybe we actually have more seasons, if one also counts the rainy season, the dry season, the fishing season (which is any time), wood stork breeding season, stone crab season and – ugh – hurricane season. We could go on and on but you get the point.

Anyone who has lived in these latitudes for any length of time will quickly tell you October and May are, far and away, the best months to enjoy the seasons in Florida. But the seasons are beautiful and wonderous all year long.

But, okay, maybe you’re a transplant and perhaps, when October rolls around, you start feeling a little nostalgic for the changing leaves of fall and the cool, crisp days and bundling up for football games.

Thanks to our friends as Houzz – and particularly contributing writer Laura Gaskill – we’ll share with you her suggestions for home decorating with a flair for fall. Bring a little of the traditional (more northern) autumn into one’s home for comfort and, maybe, a little reflection. You can find Renovations by Henning on Houzz, too, right here.
