5 Ways to Boost Your Home’s Mood
If you feel like your home could use a personality makeover, there are many things you should consider. Below are a handful of things that can easily impact the mood of your space.
Colors. The easiest way to brighten or mellow the feeling of your home is with color. From the paint on the walls to the furniture and accents, you can ground your space with grays and deep blues, or make it pop with butter yellow walls and bright orange throw pillows.
Furniture. If you’re feeling stuffy in your space, the furniture (and its layout) may be to blame. Open things up by turning that wall-facing sofa out towards the room’s center, swap that beat-up old easy chair for a sleeker design, and remove any pieces that don’t get used enough to justify their presence.
Lighting. If your home feels dingy and dark, bad lighting is likely the culprit. Examine your space for the places you spend the most time in, as well as your entrance and main focal points, and ensure they are well-lit. This may take a few sconces along stairwells, tracking lights in the kitchen, or under-mount lights in the bathroom.
Art. Your home will reflect your personality if you add art that speaks to you. Remember when it comes to artwork in the home, less is often more. Choose a few bold pieces and place them in areas where they will get a lot of eyeballs.
Plants. Well-groomed houseplants have a calming impact on your space. Potted palms in corners or sweet little succulents lined on a shelf can do wonders.
