Decor Tips That Empower Your Home and Your Well-Being

Today I have a guest Post Chloe to share some decor tips with us. 

Homes have always been synonymous with intimacy, security and relaxation. A home should be a place that allows you to be yourself and encourages you to take care of your physical, mental and emotional health. But, unfortunately, not every home exudes these positive feelings. If you think your living space needs a bit of help on that horizon, here are some tips that will empower your home and boost your well-being.


When you come home and enter a place that’s messy and overflowing with stuff, there’s no way you can relax and shed the stress. Clutter can have several negative effects on human well-being: it causes tension, stress and makes it very hard to concentrate and be present. That’s why so many people today chose to embrace minimalism or at least reduce the number of things in their home. After all, material possessions aren’t what makes us happy and content. So, keeping your home tidy and clutter-free can do wonders for both your physical and mental health. Getting rid of things that carry negative memories is especially important.

Beautiful decor

Once you remove clutter and free up some space in your home, you can do some things to beautify the place with a few meaningful and carefully picked decor elements. All the items you choose have to have a purpose, either be used for a certain action, have an aesthetic value or personal meaning. Some people choose art—an original piece from an artist you love will certainly make you proud of your space. Other people opt for a family heirloom that carries strong emotional value. Those who want to boost mindfulness can get a Zen garden, candles or a Buddha statue to put in their meditation corner. No matter which group of people you belong to, make sure to pick something that inspires you, makes you balanced or happy.

Use the color to your advantage

It’s a well-known fact that colours can affect our emotions, so if you want to boost a certain feeling, dig out your overalls and get painting. However, be careful which color you use and how you combine them. For instance, darker colours such as brown, deep blue and charcoal grey always carry a feeling of cosiness with them. On the other hand, yellows, oranges and greens tend to make people feel invigorated and motivated. The best colour to achieve peace and clear-mindedness is probably white. It conveys the feeling of cleanliness, simplicity and freshness. Bring a splash of vibrant colour with greenery that will make your home healthier and inspire positive emotions in you.

Cosy up your bedroom

Your bedroom is the place where you start and finish your day, so it has to have a positive and comfy vibe that will make even the early winter mornings a little easier. The star of every bedroom is the bed. It dictates not only the overall aesthetics of your room but also your sleep pattern. Investing in a good mattress will ensure you get a solid eight hours and wake up without back and neck pain. Also, treat yourself to stylish and soft bed linens and decorative pillows. For instance, cute pillows with bamboos or a geometric linen set from Florence Broadhurst can both boost the look of your bedroom and make your nights warm and comfy.

Remodel your bathroom

If you find spas and wellness centres very relaxing, you can easily replicate that atmosphere in your home. Pay some special attention to your bathroom and give it a little makeover. For instance, investing in a stylish and spacious bathtub will provide you with a perfect place to relax and recover your energy. Light some aromatic candles, dim the lights and feel your batteries recharge.

Play with lighting

Bad lighting can make you feel stressed, tense and uncomfortable, so it’s quite important to properly light your space. Replace all strong and cold lighting with warmer bulbs with dimmers. This will allow you to regulate the amount of light and achieve just the right atmosphere. Also, if you have a fireplace, don’t miss the chance to light it up occasionally. It will instantly warm up the space, make it romantic and relaxing.
Use these tips to turn your home into a source of strength and safety for you and your family. Your new and improved home will certainly inspire you to pay more attention to your well-being and inner peace.
