The spaces we occupy are an important part of our everyday lives. They influence us in subtle unconscious ways especially since we spend so much of our time there. This is why it is essential to live in spaces that are comfortable and relaxing and allow us to unwind after either a long day at work or a short visit out with friends. Our houses are more than just a place of living for us as they represent who we are and how we see ourselves. It is also a place where we entertain family, friends and guests.

It is also very easy to implement and does wonders to one’s health. Organization can take the form of tiny changes like buying a Desk Organizer to keep stationary and other writing implements in easy to access containers. A more large-scale change would be to buy a locker to categorize and separate items of clothing such as clothes, bags and shoes. Another nifty trick is to use baskets to make laundry more fun and enjoyable by sorting them from before.

Or just go with plain old-fashioned photo frames of exotic locations or loved and cherished people. There is also the option of using fairy lights or tapestry to brighten up a wall instead of going with traditional options. Another unorthodox choice is to install a faux fireplace which adds a bit of character to a room without the cost of getting an actual installed.
