How to Add Sparkle to Any Room
Do you ever feel in a rut? Need a little something to ignite some extra energy into you mood? The cure might be as simple as extra focus on a bedroom, a family room or a work space. Let’s look at how to take one room and use that to recharge your human battery.
1. Clean and De-clutter: Spend thirty minutes doing a deep cleaning by vacuuming, dusting, tossing unwanted and unused items, and finding items to donate. Make sure every thing has a home and belongs there. If not, do you need it?
2. Rearrange Items: Try moving all or some of your furniture to a new place. Consider anything is possible in a new layout. If you are limited in moving big items, try hanging a new piece of artwork or changing pictures from room to room. Add to your desk, a few new photographs of people or places that you love in a treasured frame.
3. Focus on Favorites: What’s your favorite space? Kitchen, bedroom, watching movies, or playroom? Take a space and spend extra time making it your own. Focus on all things that will add to that one space. Look at all the elements in the room, the walls, the furniture, the lights and ensure you are happy with all those pieces coming together in synchronicity.
4. Find Your Sparkle: Add a piece or two as fresh focal point with color, texture, sound or light. Try a new extra cuddly soft throw blanket. Add a pop of your favorite color with a vase or pillow. Uplight a dark corner with a small accent uplight on a timer hidden behind a plant or chair. Hook into Sonos and find a new Spotify station for the night.
Clutter and useless items creates stagnant energy. Breathe life into your space. Your space surrounds you. Attending to your home creates an dynamic, healthy and restorative environment. Once you charm your space, you’ll likely want to share your it with others too.
