We can’t control what goes on outside of our homes, but we do have say when it comes to the spaces we create within them. Things like colour, proper organization and lighting can help make our home feel like an oasis. Starting with colour, there’s actually science behind how different colours impact our mood. Colour such as blue and grey can help us relax, while warm colours like orange and red give us energy. As for the clutter – get rid of it. Easier said than done, certainly. But if you create small storage centres around your house you’ll be able to stash all those odds and ends away. One great storage solution is a cute, moveable cart. If you work from home, having a place to put all your pens and paperwork that moves around as much as you do can be super handy. If you have crafty kids, use it for their art supplies. Try to utilize natural light as much as you can. Use areas near windows for both work and relaxation. Natural light helps us to focus, but it also can make us feel happier. If your home lacks windows, use layered lighting as well. Mix overhead lights with lamps at different levels, which will help to diminish dark corners.
