When we think about décor, most of the time we think about how a room looks, and then about how it feels and how comfortable it is. We have more than two senses, however, and they are all important for making our environment feel pleasant to us. Yet many people neglect the importance of one of the most emotionally evocative senses: smell. Here, we’re going to look at why scent is so important in the home, and how to make the most impact on it with just a few tips.
It’s about strategic placement
Bad odors tend to have the habit of hanging around a lot longer than we would like. There are good reasons for that, too. Soft furnishings can make a room feel luxurious and extra-comfortable, but their fibers tend to trap in the things floating around in the air. They hold onto those bad smells, so when you’re trying to give the room a bit of fragrance, they can hold onto good smells, as well.
Pulling a room together can be a lot of fun. While choosing to decorate an entire house in one go can feel like too much work, at the same time, it’s often a great way to make sure that each room flows together. Because that’s often the key to getting your decor right – you have to be able to build it all up so that it just works. From your workspace to your living spaces, you’ll want to create interiors that work well for their function, but look incredible too. One of the best ways to make sure you nail the latter is to work in soft furnishings. They often soften the room and bring the entire look together. So let’s take a look at how you can complement your decor and finish it off with the right soft furnishings.
Setting up a blog is no easy task. There are a number of decisions to make, from what domain name to choose to who will be responsible for your hosting, right? And let’s be honest, those decisions are way more important than a workspace…. Wait! Are they? I used to think so, forgetting that there are other essentials that can make blogging easier.
Workspace! It’s not something that I planned ahead. I worked off my laptop from the comfort of my bed or couch, and sometimes even on the floor. A few months in and I began to understand that having a dedicated work space was a need.
So, I started searching for a desk options, found a cozy-chic chair, invested on a desktop, added some decorations and it slowly came together. So, if you’re thinking about investing on a dedicated workspace, this is what I recommend.
Get a nice sized desk with enough room for you. My desk is not huge but it is functional. It has enough space for my Mac, mouse, keyboard, but most importantly for me to spread out my notebook and hand write notes and ideas. Then from time to time it also holds lots of toys that my little piles on it, like pretend cupcakes and tea cups – she loves feeding me. 🙂
Happy Friday and Happy December! I can’t believe it’s the last month of the year. Yikes! 2017 just flew by. Today’s Friday Favorite is Vellabox, a candle subscription box. Because I feel that candles are the easiest way to show a home some TLC; I mean they make any room fragrant. I wanted to share this with you.
I personally love to light a candle when I have guests coming and even when I’m alone. And what’s really neat about Vellabox is that they send you artisan candles – way better than most store bought candles – for as little as $10 per month. The candles are handpicked non-toxic, lead free, hand poured, from the best companies in the country. So each month you discover a new candle company to fall in love with.
We all have that one room in our home that is neglected, right?! I’m not alone in this or am I? Well, in our home, our Game Room had been neglected for many months. Not because of a lack of ideas but a lack of motivation to complete the project. This changed when I found the perfect canvas to dress up the walls.
By now, you know that I am not a Houston native, but I love this city. And when I saw that our beautiful skyline was an available design with Photowall, I did a little happy dance. 🙂 I mean, not only had I found the perfect design but the colors were a perfect match for our Game Room. This canvas really brought life to the space.
You’ve probably heard a lot about essential oils and have become curious – I know I have! I mean, I know people who swear by them and all the benefits these provide; from better sleep to being more alert.
Since I wanted to personally find out what these oils were about, when a fellow blogger introduced me to Simply Earth; I took advantage of the opportunity to partner with them. Especially, because I liked what this company offers.
Simply Earth, gives back! And this is a big deal for me when trying new products. A total of 13% of their profits helps to stop human traffic.
So, what is Simply Earth? It’s an oil recipe box that works on a subscription system – monthly and quarterly. It includes 4 essential oils shipped for free to you. If you’re a complete beginner, like me – you may be able to receive a free diffuser when you start your subscription.
