Living in a home surrounded by your favorite things does more than simply beautify your space; creating an oasis that’s unequivocally you can bring increased contentment, relaxtion and interest into your world — all things that have a positive impact on your quality of life and sense of well-being. That’s why today we bring you five things that every stylish homeowner absolutely deserves to have in his or her home!
A piece with a story
We love walking into a home and seeing interesting objects that the owners have collected over the years. These special tokens hold treasured memories and provide insight into our personalities, our hopes, the things we hold dear. They instantly give our guests a peek into our world and have the power to bring us comfort with their familiarity or even excitement with their daring designs. From antiques, to vintage finds, pieces from traveling, or family heirlooms – items that tell a story are great conversation pieces to have in your home . . . and are definitely something all homeowners deserve.
An area rug you love
Area rugs are like artwork for your floor. When chosen correctly, they have the ability to completely enhance a room and reflect your style in a way that your other decor cannot. Rugs bring different colors, styles, patterns and textures to your space and allow you to have some fun with your style. Whether you’re selecting for comfort, color, pattern, or texture, you deserve to love your rug. Search until it feels right. An area rug lays the foundation for your room decor and allows everything else in the room to flow from it.
An outdoor living space
An outdoor space extends the living area of your home space and lets you get some fresh air and enjoy the outdoors. Whether it’s a front porch, a balcony, a screened-in porch or a pergola, you can create an inviting outdoor space with comfortable seating, mood lighting, and a table for food and drinks. Outdoor living areas are perfect for entertaining guests, using as a bonus dining area, or just relaxing in your oasis.
Plants, plants and more plants! Did you know house plants scientifically make you happier? These stylish adds are actually beneficial to your health. Extensive research by NASA has revealed that houseplants can remove up to 87 per cent of air toxin in 24 hours resulting in improved concentration and productivity, reduced stress levels and a boosted mood. So, we say, bring on the house plants! Keep hoarding those succulents.
A ceiling fan that doesn’t make you cringe
You know when you walk in a room and there’s that one thing that just ruins the whole vibe? Don’t let it be your ceiling fan! An ugly fan is one of those items we try to tolerate but the truth is, it can totally throw off an otherwise perfectly styled space.
There’s something so refreshing about owning products you love versus ones you merely tolerate. Find a fan that’s just your style – one that nicely pairs with the style of your space and compliments your design aesthetic. Replace it and you won’t ever look back. Hello, home comfort!
Here’s to a happy home!
