Your home can tremendously affect your mood. When you are spending a lot more time within the four walls of your abode away from the golden touch of the sun rays and soothing music of chirping birds, you may feel depressed. Urban living may not allow you to look outside and find a patch of green. However, it only takes a bit of effort to lift your mood. You can add the warmth that you were missing with only a few minor changes. Here are a few tips that you can apply to your home decor to bring in the joy of staying indoors.
1.Change the color palette:
The color scheme of a room plays an essential role in setting the mood. Adding a splash of warm color to your space can bring you out of the aloof feeling. Cold colors like blue, dark green or neutral colors may fail to create a sense of warmth. Even a tiny splash of warm colors like yellow, orange can add this sense of comfort and glee to your mood. If you have a room with white color dominance, try using a contrasting warm or bright color to create a comfortable atmosphere.
It is not always possible to change the whole wallpaper of rooms. How about changing the accessories? Remove the old faded cushion and pillows and add some pretty warm colors. You can also choose the colors of the bedsheets, curtains, and small decorations in the space accordingly. Other accessories can include a few small and cute showpieces or abstract designs that can uplift your area’s mood.
- Paintings and other wall decorations:
Using wall decorations is a good option when it comes to adding color to your living space. You can also put a painting on the wall, which can add aesthetic beauty and color to the not-so-extravagant decor of your area. For a more urban, sophisticated look, you can also use a set of decorative wall plates. These plates can have different abstract patterns, scenarios, floral designs, and you can choose one as per the theme of your place. If you are more into soft and cute wall decorative pieces, you can bring adorable racks, dreamcatchers, wall hangings, etc.
- ‘Light’ up the mood:

Choose bright lights that can light up the dark corners and hit you with a bright splash of energy. You can also put some yellow bulbs or fairy lights near the shelves, walls, planters, which can be a pleasant addition to your setup. If it’s a summer day, then you can put some sheer curtains on your window and let the sunlight hover over your floor and bed, and wall. This can brighten up your mood.
