Not only is home a place to “keep your stuff,” it’s where you lay your head to rest and recharge at the end of each day. As I get older, I am seeing more and more how much the layout of my own space affects my mood from day to day. In addition to doing your annual spring cleaning, use these tips to create the bedroom of your dreams:
Not only do add life and symbolize growth, it is proven that plants have a calming effect on people and can help you sleep at night.
Pile on the bedding.
A comfy bed is key. Trust me, there’s no such thing as too many pillows or blankets. To find affordable throw pillows and blankets with original art, check out Society 6, where a portion of every purchase pays an artist.
Account for lighting.
This includes both natural and artificial light. Find out what time of day the lighting is best in your bedroom and get a beautiful set of curtains that you can open/close as need be. At night get creative with your lighting fixtures and choose a decorative lampshade.
Find your signature fragrance.
Cover you walls in memories! Artifact Uprising is a great place to get your personal photos printed, whether you want them in square format from Instagram or framed.
Create positive energy.
You may prefer crystals or your own spiritual alter, create your own hub of positive energy in your most sacred space.
