We all want our home to suit us whether it be when we first move in, or several years in. We are dynamic, ever-changing people.
In an ideal world, our home will suit us through those changes. Whatever your mood, you should be able to come home and feel your design needs are being met,
That’s why it’s important to be incredibly selective in the furniture you choose for your living space. Including the daily pieces you know and love, but incorporating pieces that are occasion specific when necessary.
Below are suggestions on what to consider when looking for new furniture when you’re settling into a new place:
When you have a more relaxed style, you may want furniture you can get lost in. Nevermind hard chairs and grand sofas.
You want something you can snuggle in. Invest in a comfortable armchair, or giant beanbags like those found at http://www.sackdaddy.com/pages/poof-chairs.
Stock up on comfortable blankets you can snuggle up in (especially during storms like the one we are currently in!)
Other options for creating a more serene environment? I love to include white lights (so basic I know), candles on every open space available, noise cancelling items (it’s amazing what a rug can do) and as much natural light as I can get.
Have you got important guests coming? Is a family visit looming? Time to put away the somewhat worn blankets and other items of pure comfort and turn to the formal aspects of your home.
Any home needs a beautiful sofa for such occasions to be the center of a living room. Look to choose a sofa that’s sure to do you justice for special occasions but still be appropriate for day to day use.
Consider the print and fabric of items, as both can make a significant difference and not cost much more.
Fake Warmer Weather Even During Winter
Warm weather decor goes beyond a few scattered seashells and planks with beach painted across them.
During the coldest winter months, adding a bit of literal warmth to your home can help you see the light (aka Spring.)
I like to add more plants to liven up the space, include a few pastels (say lavender) to compliment my deeper plums and navy, and opt for textures already found in nature.
Another way you can brighten up your space is taking a more relaxed approach to mixing and matching sets (not everything has to match!)
Remember Your Sleeping Haven
Exhaustion is never a pleasant feeling and we all suffer it from time to time. You know the feeling; it’s been a long day at work, and all you have the energy to do is collapse.
Make sure you’re equipped to deal with or prevent exhaustion by getting proper rest each night. That starts with your mattress!
Pick a bed with plenty of room to spread out if your budget allows. Take some time, too, to decide on the right mattress for you. Find out which are best from sites like http://www.sleeplikethedead.com/bed-mattress-review-home.html.
The quest for rejuvenation doesn’t end there. Make sure that you stock up on the right pillows and duvet for your needs.
