5 Tips to Decorate Your Home
“Luxury, to me, is not about buying expensive things; it’s about living in a way where you appreciate things.” – Oscar de la Renta
“We shape our homes and then our homes shape us.” – Winston Churchill
We all love a well-decorated home, something that is truly reflective of our personality and brings comfort to us as well as those who walk in. Decorating your home, making it a cosy place to retreat to is a rather underrated and important element of your well-being. The need for a warm, comfortable home is deep-rooted in the human psyche from prehistoric days when people lived in caves kept warm and lit by fire.
Today, we have come a long way from caves, huts, and studios to homes with rooms for each purpose. However, the principle of all this is comfort. Home is where the heart feels cosy, safe and warm.
Sometimes, it may be daunting and confusing to know where to begin and what to do to complete your decor for the ultimate cosy appeal.Read the Blog to know some tips to decorate your home.
Here are 5 tips to decorate your home:
1. Lights and Mirrors
The first and unconscious element of a home that makes one feel cosy is the lighting. Assess the lighting situation in your room and customise it to your liking. Start by checking the light source of each room. We suggest trying to try and avoid a single harsh and overheated light source, instead replace it with warm scattered lights like table and floor lamps, scented candles, and ambience lighting. The lack of cool blue light in it helps induce relaxation.
Complement this with a mirror placed in the right spots to help yourself and others feel welcome. Mirrors not only add dimension to your space but it also reflects the light to create a cosmic and soothing effect.
2. Art, Painting and Pictures
3. Add Plants and Fresh Flowers
One habit the pandemic brought on us and that is here to stay is nurturing plants. Something we, at Eris Home, personally love to do! Plants make a home feel alive with their positive energy and greenery. It helps us feel rooted and connected to nature in our urban lives. Fresh flowers do the same thing with their bright colours and beauty. It makes anyone entering your home immediately feel warm, welcome and cosy. Other tips to decorate your home is to add flowers on the dining table.
