Your home should be your happy place.  When you walk through the door you should not only feel like you have entered your safe haven, you should also experience joy.  If your home doesn’t bring you joy, maybe it’s time to make some changes and decorate for happiness!  Here are some decorating tips for making your home your happy place:

  • Create a welcoming entry way.

    It’s the first thing you see when you walk through the door, so you should make it a place that brings a smile to your face.  Incorporate your favorite colors in your entry way décor. Add some personal flair while keeping it simple and organized.  The last thing you want to walk into is a mess.

  • Bring the outdoors in!

    Nothing brightens up a home like fresh flowers.  Treat yourself to a bouquet every now and then or better yet, grow colorful flowers in your own garden that you can cut and display in containers around your home.

  • Choose flattering colors.

    This may seem obvious, but how many of us have thought about what colors that are flattering to us when decorating our home?  Choose colors that bring out your best features.  Do certain colors wash you out when you wear them?  Then why would you paint a room that color?  The right colors will make you feel good give a little boost to your self-esteem!

  • Display sentimental items.

    Your home décor should be personal. It should not only represent your taste, but it should represent WHO you are as well. If family photos make you smile, don’t leave them on your computer or hide them in albums. Display them! The same goes for ornamental items.  Place mementos that bring back fond memories in various places throughout your home.

    Decorating your walls with art doesn’t have to be expensive.  There are so many places where you can purchase great posters, framed art and canvases.  Or you can even create your own art and display it.  If it brings a smile to your face, hang it up on a wall so you can see it whenever you want!
