1.- Decorate your home with wellbeing in mind, not fashion

As you know, not all people have the same tastes: we do not appreciate in the same way the same smells, or the same colors, etc.. Therefore, it is very important to know the people who live in a home to customize an interior design and decoration according to their mood or emotions. 

Some people prefer open spaces and open to the space, while others choose multifunctional furniture to suit each room of the home. Others prefer to center the decoration of their home around an element of rest as important as the sofa. 

In any case, it is not enough to have at home the latest trends in interior design or decoration, but what makes us feel more comfortable. This factor is key to add welfare within our home.

2.- Pay attention to the colors!

By choosing the shapes and colors of a home we are influencing our own brain and that of our guests. Depending on the chromatic range chosen, as well as the general lines of the house, we can make people feel more confident and relaxed or, on the contrary, stimulate them to exploit all their creativity. It all depends on our style and tastes! 

Warm colors help to recreate daytime and daily use spaces, such as the living room, kitchen or dining room. Areas where we usually share conversations with friends and family throughout the day. Therefore, opting for earth tones, grays and oranges help, in these spaces, to increase our attention and creativity. 

However, cold colors, generally present in bedrooms and bathrooms, are intended to convey serenity and relaxation. Hence, white, beige, blue or green tones are the great favorites for this type of rooms. In addition, these colors become great allies of space, generating a greater sense of spaciousness.

3.- The importance of natural light

When the sun comes out you feel full of energy and strength, but when it rains and the sky is cloudy you tend to get depressed. Does it happen to you too? The truth is, we are all susceptible to weather changes, and so is the lighting inside our home. Its greater or lesser incidence affects our mood, altering our energy levels.  

Therefore, it is vital to have several entrances of natural light inside our home. A factor that, combined with different lighting fixtures, will help us to improve the vision inside our home and will contribute to focus or give the importance it deserves to different spaces or elements of our decoration. 

It is very important to dedicate enough time to organize the lighting in our home, in order to achieve a balance between natural light and artificial lighting.

4.- Control the dimensions of the spaces in the house

A concept we all know as neuroarchitecture, or the science that studies how the environment we see influences our emotions. For example, we know that high ceilings favor creativity, while low ceilings help increase concentration and generate a certain peace of mind. 

The same is true for the type of furniture chosen. Depending on its shape we can experience a type of decoration that influences more or less our mood, as well as our behavior at home. Thus, furniture with organic and rounded shapes bring us tranquility, while elements with pronounced angles keep us alert.

5.- Includes organic decoration

Decorating the home with plants and flowers brings warmth and vitality, as well as a touch of freshness. In homes located in the city, this type of decoration influences your mood and will be essential to feel at peace at home. Creating a space close to nature, which will help us to increase our productivity and also improve the air quality. 

If you do not want to place natural plants at home, we recommend you to bet on natural wood furniture. A good way to harmonize a seemingly simple space is to introduce in it some unique piece that brings style and elegance to our home. As well as any textile with floral or tropical print. The details in green, blue and other tones that evoke a wild atmosphere will bring nature closer to home.

6.- Keep your home clean and tidy

Although sometimes it may seem impossible, it is essential to keep your home clean, tidy and ventilated to have a harmonious distribution. 

Having an organized space generates efficiency and reduces stress. Therefore, try to establish a rigorous order at home, placing the elements that you are going to use daily and removing that decoration that does not influence your mood or emotions. From Molins Design we advise you to follow the maxim: “Live with less, to live better”. 

It will also be important to have an aroma that makes a difference (and that matches our tastes, of course). As you know, the sense of smell activates our memories. Therefore, it will be vital to take into account the smell that transmits our home and its different rooms. 

Choose a fragrance that defines you and is not overwhelming. Fresh scents such as lemon, lavender or tea tree are perfect for creating the perfect atmosphere. You can achieve a 100% personal scent thanks to the fragrances of the Le Compositeur designer diffuser. Take a look!

How to give new life to forgotten rooms in your home?

Make the necessary adjustments in those rooms that you do not use. You may need to stop and think about your needs and how to better distribute the space. To do this, we advise you to get rid of what is extra and place a decoration according to your mood, which is more functional and adapted to your daily tasks. 

For example, if you are passionate about sports, it may be a good time to create a small gym at home, with the machinery and accessories that suit your exercise routine. It may also be the ideal time to give life to a new corner where you can relax reading a good book or watching your favorite series. Set your priorities and make the renovation or intervention in your home that best suits your needs.
