From seashells to ribbons, you can now make your own space attractive and welcoming. Whether it is an office space or your apartment that is in dire need of a face lift, follow these sure ways to make it more inviting:
- Go wild: A spring of colors here and there could just bring out the fun side of you but be careful not to go over the top especially in an office space! Sticky notes complete with words of affirmation, could just do the trick.
- Objet d’art: Little knick-knacks placed in strategic places could also work. It could be memorabilia, a family photo, a potted plant, squishy toys (which helps relieve stress) and ornaments. Something to lift the mood when you’re feeling stressed.
- Renovate: I’d suggest to switch things up a bit in your home, maybe by moving furniture around, hanging up nice art or paintings but that might seem ‘been there done that’ … so, during your spare time, you could piece together curtains made up of beads or a mat made of seashells, anything to give your space that flair.
- Maintenance: This is a subject that most people forget to do. You can’t just get new things and not give it a shine once in a while, it will lose its essence! So, scrub, clean and sustain. Throw out what is not needed and try not to hoard. A garage sale could help in that area to not only declutter but reel in some money.
These are just a few ideas, comment below if you have any more.
