Do you know your environment can affect your mood? well YES, it CAN.
A well-furnished room affects your mood positively, creates energetic vibes, attitude changes and effectively increases productive mindset. Beautifying your space is not about trying to impress your guest or showing off decor skills but it rather has a positive effect on your mood than you think.
Nothing is so precious to me than coming home to a friendly atmosphere after a hectic stressful day and right at the door entrance kicking off my shoes, jumping into the shower, putting on a comfy PJ, dining to a delicacy that arouses appetite, pouring me a glass of wine and finally relaxing enjoying the comfortable atmosphere.
Personally, I acknowledge home decor as a source of escape and distraction achieving total peace and fulfilment at the end of every interior design project. The colours, layout of the furniture, design and the fabrics has really improved my mood and I discovered that it has also encouraged me to spend more time at home.
When picking decors for your living room you’ll need to pick soft textured colours and respecting the theme you already have. Having your home filled with a lot of objects only makes it looks tight and untidy, I believe decorating your home with less object keeps it neat, organized and in order which really matters a lot. Pieces of Stuff that I don’t like littering a stored in the sideboard or in the Ikea custom storage I built in the kitchen. Basically, I like my living room looking empty but yet organised and spacious, come to think of it I’ve gained more sense of improvement in the quality of living.
There is no secret to decorating an apartment all required is a keen aesthetic sense that helps you recognise which decorating style to choose. Believe it or not, whatever design choice you make has a psychological motiving force that impacts you subconsciously and reflexes your personality upon that you should think of customising your decoration to align with your style.
One of the decor element I find fascinating are books which have become a trend for modern home designers. There are simple ways to incorporate designer books into your home decor without acting O.T.T. Adding books purposefully to your decor can give your home absolute glam. Designer Books can be used to adorn a coffee table as well as fill in gaps or serve as an ornament riser as I did with this table lamp.
The good thing about decorating with books is that you can place them versatile whether you choose to stack them comfortably up on a coffee table vertically and a flower vase on top of it or horizontally placing ornaments by the sides or on each side and on a shelf.
In this picture below, when taking the pictures I realised the coffee table needed a middle rug which I didn’t have any at the moment so I had to improvise by using one of my fur faux hoodie dress to make a rug and funny enough it looks great. So it is not a mistake is intentional I believe in creativity. There is no limit to what you can imagine “IF YOU CAN THINK IT, YOU CAN DO IT 😉.
Books with uniform colours grouped together aim to give your decor an outstanding statement just like you see in these pictures as I used hardcover books and rapped it with predominantly white and black images of high-end fashion designer logo like Prada, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Tom Ford. When decorating you should be colour conscious what I mean by this is you should choose your colours wisely when combining with another, if you choose to go hard you continue on hard but if you decide on soft then stay soft. You should alternatively use colours that blend with other ornaments, art and accessories you have.
The glam this hardcover book gives my coffee table is amazing, the table lamp sitting so cute above the books arranged on my sideboard, the soothe it gives my surroundings put a smile on my face.
