#1. Bring nature indoors

Add a cleansing, citrus fragrance with candles, this Skeem Citrus & Olive candle is perfect and beautiful. Place lavender pockets in your house and flowers around your house. or buy an indoor plant. Bringing nature indoors can help create serenity, and certain houseplants – such as a sprawling Areca palm or a Dracaena plant – also cleanse the air within the home. With this step, beware of the temptation to re-clutter your space with too many trinkets and decorations – less is more!

 

#2 Rearrange your space

To create a new atmosphere and potentially more space, reorganize your furniture. Play around with the sofa arrangement, bookshelf placements and the TV table. Using this technique will help you to experiment with new and more stimulating placements, and give you the feel of a fresh renovation.

If it interests you, consider practising good Feng Shui placements to aid in maintaining a positive energy and outlook and keep a peaceful energy around your home.
