Home is where the heart is, a place to feel safe, to relax, to escape from the stresses of the world outside. With the 20th of March being the official day of Happiness in the UK, spring is the perfect time to freshen up your home and put some heart back into it after the long winter months.

Let there be light

Clever lighting can help create a sense of comfort and relaxation. Switch harsh overhead lights in favour of lamps, fairy lights. Optimise on natural light by working with big windows, glass doors and skylights to let natural light in.

Get sentimental

Create a gallery of happy and positive memories, be it photographs, children’s paintings or family heirlooms. Tell a story through your home whilst adding a touch of warmth and familiarity.

Be at one with nature

There are a growing number of studies highlighting natures ability to reduce stress and improving our mental and physical health. Plants have both emotional and medicinal benefits so nurture your orchid, cultivate your cacti or if you want something longer lasting, add a floral or Muriel theme to your walls and really bring the outdoors, in.

 

Heighten your senses

What makes you happy? It could be a sight, sound, smell, texture, incorporate your senses to enrich your space. Add soft fluffy cushions and throws to your lounge, play your favourite music in the kitchen so you can dance whilst making dinner, or simply light a fragrant candle whilst having a bath after a long day.

Make a YOU space

Whether you live in a mansion or a studio apartment, dedicate a space just to you. It could be your favourite chair, an art corner or a writing desk, create a space to recharge, relax and unwind.
