It's important to love where you live. Whether you own a house or rent a room, it's a big part of who you are, your mood, your well-being.
Each day this week I'm sharing 5 free design tips you can do right now for a happier home & happier you!
*** to avoid overwhelm, pick one room or even one area of a room to start with.***
TIP 1- DECLUTTER DECLUTTER DECLUTTER
This part is the most important step so do NOT skip!!
Remove half (or 1/4 if half gives you hives) of every knick knack, book, vase, plant, toy, blanket, magazine etc. that is visable.
Less clutter = more white space. More white space reduces mental chaos and frees up your mind. Trust me, for your home to be a solace you need to eliminate extra visual noise. There is a whole psychology behind it.
Put everything you take away in a box for your storage closet, garage or even the trunk of your car. Save everything for a while, if you find you can live without them then sell or donate. Don't panic, you can still use this stuff later if needed.
Looking below, can you see how much of a difference removing the clutter makes? I walk by this counter all day long, seeing it less cluttered makes me feel good.
If you've already decluttered what you can see, for extra credit, you can try drawers, a closet, or a cabinet.
You got this! Tell me your plan, I'd love to hear it.
Stay tuned. TIP 2 coming tomorrow.
