Your home should be the place you feel the most relaxed, comfortable and serene with! A place where you can retreat and get away from the outside world. When I come home, I don’t want to feel like I’m walking into someone else’s space, I want to feel as if I can strip away any external stresses and leave it all at the front step.
Some people have their whole house feeling like a sanctuary while others have just one room that they can slip away to. You may be wondering how to bring a sense of peacefulness into your home, here are 4 simple tips to help you reach that perfect level of tranquility.
Piece of Mind All Night Long
If you look around your home, I’m sure you can see lots of little ‘extras’ that really do not need to be there. All those knick knacks are really not necessary and not only take up space but collect dust and clutter your mind. Now, I’m not saying to throw all those items out, but pay attention to whether you are going to use those pieces over the next while or are they unnecessarily causing you stress.
When you declutter your home, you are also decluttering your life.

Reflecting Personality through the Use of Colour Palettes

Even playing around with shades of a colour can make a difference to the atmosphere and the overall feeling of a room.

As the transition to Fall soon approaches; oranges, light greys and browns are becoming the hottest in Autumn Fashion for both your home and clothing choices!
Choosing the correct piece of artwork is another big part in creating the atmosphere you want. A bold and eccentric painting can really brighten up the room and give electric vibes to all who enter. However, if you are looking to be more relaxed and chill, you may want to look at getting a piece that is a little more subtle.
As always, don’t limit your vision to just artwork. Incorporate decorative pieces, such as, bowls, plant holders, vases, wall hangings, mirrors and waterfalls to further express your personality!
A refreshing idea would be to add rose gold accessories that are bold yet provide the modern, chic finishing touches that are required for your home to be completed with the latest in home decor trends.
Brighten Me Up
