There are basically two types of people in this world. Those who move into a new space, home or office, and leave the walls blankly white for months or years. Then there are those who throw art and color up on the walls as soon as they walk in the door.
Designing your space to be functional, aesthetically pleasing, soothing or energizing can change your life! Not only is the process of decorating and designing therapeutic, the result is positively gratifying.
Here are some thoughts on decorating and some tips for making your home homier than ever (or your office a really pleasing place to walk into).
-Consider some of your favorite places and think about what colors are there. These may be great colors to consider in decorating. Also, don’t use multiple patterns of the same size that will compete with each other. [More tips here.]
-Your home is a metaphor for the self. Look at redecorating as a therapeutic process that lets you clean up and improve areas of both your home and your life.
-For most people, erring on the side of minimalism as opposed to clutter works better.
-A therapeutic office can get the productive and creative juices flowing. Utilize water elements, whimsical toys, and scents for a great workspace.
-Apply basic fen shui to your bedroom for a soothing space to rest. Pay attention to the images in your bedroom, and make sure your bed isn’t directly in line with the door.
What’s decorating your home?
If you’re looking for a place to start decorating or redecorating, I recommend a gallery wrap canvas print of an image that really speaks to you. A picture you took traveling, a favorite view, the best snapshot of you and your friends, or a soothing scene of nature in this beautiful format can inspire your decor or really bring a room together.
