THE #1 TREND TO MAKE YOU HAPPIER AT HOME

Great design creates great moods.

May 9, 2018

Our homes are an extension of who we are: what we do within our walls shapes our mood, affects our productivity and influences our outlook on life.

Scientific studies have shown that everything that surrounds us affects us, and beautiful houses that open with clear sidelines and open concept living create good moods. Compartmentalisation is a thing of the past.

Whether you live in a tiny basement flat or airy spacious homes (where people can make monumental mistakes that almost destroy what natural has given them). We can all do it.

The most important thing you need is space and light. Wherever you are, maximize what there is of these. The secret is to open up houses with open-lines that connect with the outdoors. It’s better for families keeping an eye on their kids, better when entertaining, and even better for making rooms feel bigger. With the aid of natural light, you can make a tiny place feel as big as the great outdoors.

It’s amazing how a few tweaks – like ripping down heavy curtains, bashing down an arch, or opening up a wall, can become a catalyst for meaningful, positive change. It will take less time than you thought, and your life will improve dramatically.
