Create an ‘atmosphere’ – Lighting is a fabulous mood creator. Create a focus with a lamp in a corner, or particular spot for accent. Light scented candles, listen to music you love, use soaps that are creamy, luxurious, lathery & smell great. Go for the multi sensory approach.
A pergola that is attached to your house can be a great addition; it’s a good way to create a useful sheltered outdoor area and give you shade from the sun.
Another great way to start your home decorating project is to clear the way with de-cluttering, clearing out & getting organized – if you would like some pointers to help you with this - visit this section of my website.
