People get their houses decorated for all sorts of reasons.
However, the single biggest through-line, the thing we hear again and again, is ‘I want to bring some life into my home’.
We spend so much time in our homes, and having a space which is dull, uninspiring and above all lifeless can slowly lower your mood.
It is, therefore, always worth putting in that extra effort to really make it come alive.
You will feel energised and uplifted, and people who visit your home or office will see you in a whole different light.
How do you do it, though?
Injecting life into a home is all about shaking things up.
One brilliant, simple way to energise a space is giving it a lick of distinctive colour.
Using bright, bold colours and making sure the finish is spotless will make the whole space feel more alive.
You can even use colour psychology to create specific moods and alter the way you interact with the space.
Another great idea is introducing house plants and flowers.
So many homes have been transformed by the presence of a living, breathing plant.
It makes the whole space feel alive, and spreads beautiful smells and a sense of being a part of your surroundings.
It also requires care and attention, which has the knock-on effect of making you take better care of the whole space!
Finally, playing with lighting is a great way to introduce new life into a space on a budget.
Try out new lamp shades; experiment with different sized bulbs or weird colours.
You can get dimmers, meaning you can control the level of light in a room.
Or you can buy new curtains or drapes and experiment with the way light filters in and out of a room.
Or you can invest in windows, and bring more and better sunlight into your life.
With these simple, easily achieved methods, you can be sure to bring some extra life into your home.
