Now, more than ever, our surroundings are important. They can affect our moods and
wellbeing and it has been shown that there is a direct correlation between aesthetics and our
mental health over the long-term.
We spend more time at home these days and you could consider channeling your travel budget into your home instead. Lighting up a space with softer, more muted colours with pops of colour here and there can elevate your disposition.
You want to linger in a room with sumptuous fabrics such as faux fur, rich wools and
velvets. Adding plants can not only bring the outdoors in but they also act as natural air
filters. Finally, look at your lighting. Is it soft and inviting or harsh and dim?
Investing in lamps and light fixtures can add much needed Zen to a space.
