WELLNESS IN DESIGN
In a time where everyone is focused on health and wellness, the idea that home design and décor may help your mental and physical well-being has never been more explored. Here are some ways you can promote wellness in your home.
With color: Hues of blue have been known to promote tranquility without dullness. Use a muted blue to create this tranquil space, or use a brighter blue to improve your mood. You can also use other bright colors such as yellow, green, or orange to promote increased mood.
With design: Simplicity is key for wellness in your home. A disorganized home can lower self-esteem while also creating more housework, dirt, and dust. Simplify your space by creating a place for everything that you use, while disposing or donating the items you don’t use.
With lighting: Lighting is incredibly important to the utility of your home. Most homes do not have adequate lighting, and with that comes decreased mood and trouble sleeping. How do we fix this? Start by adding warm LED lighting to the rooms that you most frequent: your home office, pantry, living room, or bedroom.
