Your environment could keep you calm, cool and calculated or distract you when it is in disarray. Let your home speak your language, your rooms should take on your sensitivity, mood, attitude, and spirit.
Whenever you are discouraged, the four walls of your room should comfort you; help you reflect on your energy and personality; and in no time, put you back on your feet. Your house can be a place of comfort when properly kept.
Take time to make your surrounding reflect your personality and soothe your sense of taste and class, by following the recommendations outlined below. Having your home appropriately arranged will enable you channel your energy appropriately.
Organic scented candles, fresh flowers such as tube roses, incense with various perfumes, linen sprays, lavender sachets for your closets or drawers. A freshly baked pie, naturally scented bath products in your bathroom. Aromatherapy lamps and clean laundries, all these can make a home welcoming and inviting.
Infuse your home with lots of green easy-to-care-for plants such as philodendron and lucky bamboo. Colorful flowers, pillows, paint, and draped fabrics could be used to spice up monochromatic spaces.
Allow sunshine to welcome a new day. Pictures of loved ones or artwork strategically displayed; framed postcards of all the places you have been to and loved and mirrors placed opposite empty walls to give more space.
A blend of either Faux fur, silks, Egyptian cotton or other fabrics with Chenille throws Sisal rugs, Velvet, organza, or beaded curtains. Smooth stone sculptures.
Having a pet to nurture like a gold fish in a nice looking aquarium at a strategic position will definitely be appealing to the eyes and give your home the look you so desire.
Delicate wind chimes outside the bedroom window, a crackling fire and classical jazz or soothing music within the house could be relieving.
Fresh fruit in a wicker basket or ceramic bowl on the dining table; a display of teas or hot chocolate on your kitchen counter; clear Mason jars filled with nuts and grains; a candy dish, snowflake sugar cookies; cinnamon sticks and cloves in transparent jars can be pleasing to the eyes as well.
