With a new year comes new beginnings, goals, desires and journeys. When it comes to adding something new to the home, there can be hesitation because change can be scary. I’m going to list four things that you can consider changing in your home for 2019. Will you try at least one?
1 – CEILING COLOR. Who says that ceilings have to be white? The 5th wall, aka the ceiling, is a great place to try a light color. Now don’t go crazy here especially if you have a low ceiling. Here are come colors to consider. Now before your turn your nose up at these colors, just imagine the warmness they would add to any room. Be sure to hold the colors upside down when viewing, just like you’d see them on the ceiling.
I did a quick rendering to show you what a room would look like without a white ceiling. This is Paper Lantern. Sure makes the room feel different doesn’t it?
2 – Speaking of “feeling different” the Holistic Home is just that. What is a Holistic Home? It’s a home that feels good based on the color palette and elements that are in the home. A while back I said that I’m going to dig deep into talking about the four main Elements, Fire, Air, Earth and Water. Well these Elements belong in the home. This time of year for some of us is the winter season which represents the Water Element. Having water in the home is comforting, soothing, relaxing and it just sounds awesome to have in the background, nice white nose to calm.
3 – The sights, the sounds and yes, the smells! I LOVE incense in the home and you bet I have it in mine! I love watching the smoke rise (relaxing) and yes it smells awesome depending on what you like. Tapping into our senses whether it’s a physical color that we like, a sound we like to hear or something that smells really good, these are all little changes that we can do in our home to make it special for us.
4 – Sure there’s many more things that we can do to our home to make it a little special and cater it to our liking. Cozy up your home! Make it look good with the right colors. Go out of your comfort zone and try colors that you would have never thought of. I would suggest finding an inspiration piece for guidance. This palette was taken from the incense collection. Great colors don’t you think?
