Open & Fresh – How to make a room feel decluttered

Clutter causes stress.

It’s a proven fact.

At least that is what researchers at UCLA discovered when they explored the relationship between 32 families and the objects in their home.  It turns out clutter has a profound effect on our emotional well being and not a positive one.

Now I am not advocating that we suddenly have a huge clear out and paint everything white.   So how can we create an open and fresh interior that will have a positive impact on our well being?

NATURAL LIGHT can make a home lighter and brighter and give the feeling of more space.  Where it is limited simple tips like clever placement of mirrors,  utilising paint techniques and  boosting brightness with the right kind of artificial light will help make the most of it.

HOUSEPLANTS not only look gorgeous and brighten up our home, but they can also be great for our mental and physical health.

When it comes to COLOUR simply adding a pop of uplifting colour through the use of accessories such as rugs, cushions or lampshades will immediately brighter an interior.

GROUPING SIMILAR ITEMS can make a strong visual impact on a room.  Objects look curated, rather than cluttering the room.

It’s all about keeping on top of the clutter.  5 minutes a day will go a long way to creating an open and uplifting space.

Once you have all the clutter gone you will now have the free space to match in the perfect rug. Visit our website to find the rug for you
