When moving into a new house, finding the balance between old and new is tricky. There are many ways to spice up your decor and give it your own, personal touch.
An excellent way to add a personal touch and make the space feel homey is by adding family photos. Whether hung or displayed on shelves and tables, photographs of personal memories give that sweet touch and help create a familiar vibe.
Another way to feel more at home is to display souvenirs, collectibles, and family heirlooms. This helps create familiarity and comfort, and it is also a great conversation starter for guests visiting your new house.
Choose a specific color scheme or pattern that appeals to you and add pillows, rugs, and other accessories to give your space a pop of vibrancy and excitement. Each room can have its own theme, or you can move around the house with one set color scheme and style of accessories to create consistency.
In order to avoid clutter, store away previously owned, unwanted or unneeded furniture. One of the things that can bring stress and anxiety is too much daily clutter and chaos. As they say, “out with the old, and in with the new.”
Help children get accustomed to the new living space by bringing along their cherished toys and select items such as blankets or pillows. Changing environments can be confusing and difficult for younger children, and making a smooth transition is key.
Create a private space to relax in, whether it is a nice reading corner or a calm space by a window with a view. It is important to claim the space as your own and become comfortable and happy with your surroundings.
Choose a relaxing scent that you enjoy, like Lavender or Jasmine, and use incense or an essential oil infuser to get your new space smelling lovely. This not only creates a familiar atmosphere, but it can also induce different energies and vibes, depending on the selected scent.
As a final touch, add a few flowerpots and plants of your choice. The colors of the flowers will bring your home to life, and the benefits of the green plants will boost your mood. These benefits include improving levels of fresh air, healing, and concentration.
