HOME ACCESSORIES THAT WILL BRING YOU JOY

Most of us have been staring at the same walls of our home for over a year as we try to stay indoors and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Even if your home used to bring your joy, there is a good chance that some of your rooms could use some refreshing so that your home feels like a sanctuary again. Fortunately, there are some simple changes you can make that will breathe new life into your home and spark some much-needed joy.

Not only are house plants beautiful, but they are also scientifically proven to make us happier. Indoor houseplants reduce stress and anxiety and help you have a more positive outlook on life. Tending to plants is therapeutic and the added greenery will improve the indoor air quality. If you don’t have much of a green thumb, start with easy-to-care-for plants like bamboo and succulents. Also, don’t be afraid to splurge on fresh flowers every once in a while to add some color.
