Home is where the heart is!
People who love their homes are the ones who are particularly fond of coming back to their nests each day. They have been so engaged with keeping their houses well and welcoming that they identify themselves with their space. Are you one of them?
But once in a while, you can also get bored of the same décor. You may want to simply refresh your home so that you get a fresh feeling. There are so many things that you can do to bring about an effective change in the sphere you call your own without crunching on your finances and making your bank account weep, lol.
Paring up old stuff and ringing in some news can help bring freshness into the décor. Do not fret if your things are still new and you feel it is a shame to discard them especially since they look so new. Consider giving them to someone who will value it like a close friend or family or even putting it up for charity sale so that the money so got can be donated. This was an idea I used when I was young. I used to collect things that I no longer needed around the house and conducted a garage sale and donated the cash to an institution that I was associated with.
Candles and scented!
Buy the fumeless candles. Aww, there are so many to choose from that you can never really go wrong with this one and the scent that they impart gives so much freshness and good vibes around.
You can contrast with the present décor of yours. It will take away the hint of predictability that your guests have about your house. For instance, you can totally change your coffee table display and the showpieces can be swapped for some hardcover books to give that nerdy appearance to the living space.
Putting up posters with funny messages brings in a lot of lightness:
Care must be taken to show your funny or sarcastic side. Vulgar posters can mean that you can bring in a lot of negative energy inside and that you can put off or make uncomfortable a lot of your guests like the elderly or the children.
