3 Decor Ideas That Will Make Your Home A Happier Place

Let the sunshine in!


After long, tension-filled days at work, all of us simply want to unwind. There are those who prefer working out, taking a long walk, or getting drinks with friends and officemates. While these are great and effective, we believe that you should also be able to put yourself in a good mood without leaving the comforts of your home. After all, your house is your sanctuary and the only place you can call your own. 

If you're looking for ways to be happier at home, a few design tweaks can help you achieve it!

Nothing livens up a home more than a nice bouquet of fresh blooms. As often as you can, put some on display as flowers can set your day to a good start. Pieces like a vase of flowers or potted plants can make a space feel more peaceful—reminding us to appreciate even the little things.

Repaint the room in a bright color—pick yellow or orange for maximum impact. It's a very cheap investment that goes a long way. By simply changing the color of your walls, you get to breathe new life into the space, symbolizing a fresh start.

Remember to bring in and maximize natural light! If your home has huge windows, use light-colored and sheer curtains to let the sunshine in. It's believed that stress and anxiety symptoms are relieved when we are exposed to sunlight, helping boost our mood and bring more positive thoughts.
