Heart Of The Home
Your home is more than four walls and a roof; these small, yet impactful ways will help bring warmth and individuality to your living space
SPRING-CLEAN OFTEN A cluttered space only increases stress levels; you’ll be amazed at how a bit of streamlining and scrubbing can instantly make your home look and feel brighter.
GET COMFORTABLE Be it a fuzzy new rug or cushion covers, soft furnishings usher in that ultra-comfy factor. Plus, carpets and drapes absorb sounds like voices, footsteps and scraping chairs that can make a room feel hollow and cold, so layer away!
REMEMBER WHERE YOU’VE BEEN Curate a thoughtful display by corralling meaningful trinkets and objects from your travels onto a chic tray or display shelf. It’ll ser ve as a decorative centerpiece to anchor a sideboard, coffee table or dining area, but also evoke memories of places you’ve visited.
ADD SOFT LIGHTING While ceiling lights are practical for daily activities, switching on a warm pendant lamp (or two) by your bed, or a standing lamp in the living room, can dramatically change the mood of the room and create a relaxing atmosphere.
SHOW OFF THE FAMILY Create a unique galler y by framing up photographs from family trips or carefully selected ar tpieces on the wall. It gives your home personality, and the frames add weight and importance.
