Decorating Tips to boost Good Health
By Suzy Chiazzari
Most people would like to become fitter and healthier, but the sad truth is that although many of us make good diet and lifestyle choices, we undo all their achievements by living in spaces that are full of toxic products, colours that can pull us down and layouts that make our homes difficult to live in. Choosing natural materials, cleaning products and good lighting go a long way to creating a healthier home but there are plenty of other decorating and décor tips that can help you feel more relaxed, healthier and happier.
The Holistic Design Institute specialises in Holistic Interior Design that teaches you how to create a beautiful, inspiring and user-friendly home that will also help improve your relationships and improve your mental and physical health.
Holistic Design Decorating tips:
1. Keep the main wall colour a light tone to reflect more natural light into your eyes. This helps balance your biorhythms and body clock and you will sleep better and have more energy.
2. Make sure your seating in the living room is close enough to have an intimate conversation. Shouting across a room can divide a family and strain relationships.
3. Don’t think you have to stay with one particular style of furniture and furnishings. Single styles look like stage sets and become dated quickly so rather have fun collecting an eclectic mixture of items that you love and reflect your individuality. Link them by colour and shape.
4. Put an aromatic plant at your entrance or hallway, as scent creates good memories and improves homecoming, especially after a busy or stressful day.
5. When it comes to designing a kitchen, don’t think large range ovens are the best. Most of these chew fuel and often are the cause of accidents in the kitchen. Instead go for a built in oven and eye-level grill. They are easy to use, easy to clean and don’t put strain on your back and knees.
6. Bedrooms should be private and protected spaces so try to avoid bedrooms that require you to walk through them to another room. We naturally feel safer and more relaxed when we can see the door from the bed, so if you cannot relocate your bed, then put a mirror on the opposite wall so you can see the doorway.
