You know that feeling when you walk into your home and everything just feels right? Whether it's the way the furniture is placed, the decor, or even how you feel. It may be all in your head, but there are some science-backed reasons to try these tips for home decor! From creating a sense of balance to reducing stress levels, these are some simple ways to get yourself motivated to do some touching up.

These are some things I do, and sharing with you!

Get the PERFECT furniture placement!!

It may seem like it's just about where to put the couch, but furniture placement can really impact how your space feels.

You want to make sure that there's a balance of light and dark colors in your room so that there's not too much contrast. You also want to be mindful of any busy patterns on the furniture or curtains and balance them with softer colors and textures.

The arrangement of your furniture will also impact the look and feel of your space. If you have a large, open area, try putting one big piece out in front instead of several small pieces scattered around. If you have a small square footage, try arranging furniture in a square shape instead - this will give the illusion that the square footage is bigger than it actually is!

With these easy tips for home decorating, you'll be able to make your house feel more like home!


One of the most popular decorating trends in recent years has been the addition of accent walls. Painting an accent wall is a great way to change up the feeling in a room without having to put too much work into it. It's easy for anyone with some basic painting skills to do!

If you're thinking about an accent wall for your home, consider painting one of your walls a different color than any other wall in your house. For example, if you have beige walls throughout your home, paint one room brown with white trim. Or if you have red accents throughout, try painting one wall yellow.

The idea is that it's always good to add some contrast into your home decor to keep things fresh and interesting. Plus, people often find it easier to feel motivated about decorating when they know what the focal point will be.

An accent wall can also help balance out a room or create symmetry where there was none before. This creates an aesthetically pleasing effect that many people find soothing and relaxing.

So, if you're thinking about updating the look of your home but need some more motivation, consider adding an accent wall! It'll not only make the room more visually appealing but will also provide some benefits like stress relief and balance!

Need some ideas for what you should paint? Here are some common colors that people use as an accent wall:

  • Yellow-creates a sense of warmth
  • Pink-chases away bad vibes or just adds a little color
  • Purple-chases away bad vibes
  • Red-spikes energy levels

PLANTS! Even ones that last a weeks! Trust me!

There are so many creative ways to decorate your home. You can create your own decorations by using some simple materials like fabrics, and ribbon.

For example, one of the best ways to decorate your home is with plants. Not only will they make your space look more alive, but plants can also help balance out energies in the room—especially if you put them on one side of the room and not on both sides.

Creating that space we all need! 

Did you know that the way you decorate your home can affect your mood? Believe it or not, what you put on your walls and how you arrange furniture can have a big impact on your happiness levels.

For example, symmetrical objects are more pleasing to the eye than asymmetrical ones according to research. And if that's not enough, placing symmetrical objects in an asymmetric design will balance out the room.

So what's the best way to do this? Try putting some favorite pictures on one wall and making sure all of them are parallel with each other. Or if you're trying for a more natural feel, try arranging plant pots or books so they match up on different shelves. The key is balance!

Add your personal touch to your home! What do you love! 

There are many benefits to adding your personal touch to your home. And the best part is that it doesn't have to break the bank!

First up, you can tap into your creativity by making subtle changes around your house. For example, you could change the curtains in your bedroom or replace pictures on the wall. By adding touches of yourself to the room, you'll feel more at home and less like a guest in your own home.

Next, you can use decoration as an inexpensive way to change the look and feel of a space. A quick fix for this is changing out throw pillows or swapping out artwork with framed photos of loved ones.

Finally, you can see if there are any little things that annoy or stress you out at home. Is it something like how close the couch is to the TV? Take care of these small things so they don't become bigger problems down the road!

These are just three simple ways that you can add your personal touch to your home without breaking the bank!

Reduce stress with scents! I love my candles! 

You may not realize it, but our sense of smell is the only one that works directly with the area of the brain that controls emotion and memory. This means scents can have a profound effect on your mood and brain function.

Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi identified this phenomenon as "the experience of flow" or "being in the zone." When you feel like you're doing something perfectly, your sense of self-consciousness disappears. Your focus becomes intense and time seems to stretch out or slow down.

In other words, when you're smelling something great, your home will have a positive effect on your mood—and your focus!

There are lots of ways to scent your space with pleasant smells. For example, try diffusing essential oils to create a fresh scent throughout your home. You can also bake cookies or roast coffee beans for a delicious aroma. You might even want to try lighting a candle to fill up an empty room with a calming fragrance. 

But whatever you do, make sure you keep it subtle so it doesn't overwhelm those around you!

Keeping it tidy helps.. I know , I know.. but start small! 

Creating order is one of the most important things you can do to set the mood for your home. Creating a sense of balance in your home, will help you feel more calm and relaxed.

Structure is also very important in creating coziness. By placing furniture properly, it creates a sense of order and it doesn't seem as cluttered. The additional benefits are that it reduces stress levels and enhances moods!
