How To Decorate Your Home to Create the Life You Desire
The secret powers of home decorating & how to use them!
Did you know that the way you decorate your home can greatly affect your life? It can literally change your state of mind, your energy level, your emotions, & your whole life experiece. Pretty amazing, isn't it?
Take a moment to think about how different colors, patterns, textures, & images might affect you. Bright colors can give you energy. Dim lighting can help you to relax. Soft textures can make you feel safe and loved.
Many of these sensual experiences are fairly universal. However, your own personal life experiences have taken part in shaping your preferences, so it's important to get in touch with the way different colors, patterns, textures, & images make YOU feel, because your experience may be very different than someone else's.
Being aware of how things make you feel is extremely valuable, because you can use this information to create the experiences you want to have in each room in your home. It's this amazing super power you probably didn't even know you possessed!
So exactly how do you use your new found super powers?
Well, one of the very first & most important steps in designing any room in your home is deciding how you want to feel in that room. And this will be connected to how you'll most often use that room. (Because the feelings & experiences you want to have in your bedroom are probably very different from the ones that you want to have in your home office, right?).
So... how do you want to feel in this space? Do you want to feel relaxed, calm, & cozy? Or energized, motivated and excited? Or maybe exotic & sexy?
Next explore what colors, patterns, textures, items, make you feel that way. For example, feeling exotic & sexy may lead one person to think of red silk, sleek black furniture, tribal design details, and lots of shiny metals & crystal accents. Those are things that give them that feeling. While to another person it may mean purple velvet, silk sari patchworks, Moroccan lanterns, & lots of candles, because those are the things that make them feel exotic and sexy.
There is no right or wrong here, so rather than asking other people for their advice about how you should decorate your home (which will only tell you what THEY like) trust yourself and have fun creating your own experience of home. Get in touch with what YOU like & how things make YOU feel.
What you choose to express & the way you choose to express it are what make you unique!
