Getting settled into a new home is such a wonderful feeling. It’s like turning the page onto a new chapter of life! A new home is a blank slate – a place that you can make into anything you want, where anything can happen!
I wanted to talk to you a little bit today about how you can completely transform the atmosphere in your new home by implementing just a few simple things.
Art is one of the best ways we can express ourselves and our creativity. You don’t have to create the art yourself but finding pieces that resonate with you and your personal style can really add to the overall feeling that you (and others) get when you walk into your home.
You might go for some photography prints, hand-drawn pieces from your favorite artists, a few prints from an online artist or one that you encountered somewhere in life… the possibilities for art are limitless! Pick a theme that makes you feel wonderful and run with it.
Nothing makes a home have a sense of warmth like glowing, flickering candles. Candles not only add to the way a home looks, but the way that they make your home smell can really give your home a signature atmosphere.
Did you know that our sense of smell is directly linked to memory, and it’s one of the strongest triggers of memory that we have? You can give you home an atmosphere that brings back wonderful memories just by filling it with scents that you love.
Area rugs are a great way to add some flair to a room without taking up any space! Even if you have carpeting, I really recommend getting a nice accent rug to liven up the atmosphere. There are so many options out there these days, so you can find something that really ties your whole room together.
Need a little area rug inspiration? Plush, patterned rugs under the couch make for a cozy living room. Faux fur rugs add some fun to the bedroom, and a bright area rug can add a pop of color to the bathroom!
Get yourself a good-quality Bluetooth speaker or smart speaker so you can have your favorite tunes playing at all times! You can even just play some melodic music without words to add to the atmosphere in your home in a non-distracting way. Music is a great way to transform your home into an oasis of relaxation, give yourself an energy boost, or turn things up and let loose!
Now that you have a few tips for setting the atmosphere in your new home, it’s time to go out there and do it!
