Colour psychology is a popular buzz word in the world of interiors and rightly so. Colour can majorly effect how we feel within our homes so it’s important to choose a palette that works for you. Traditionally, uplifting colours include yellow, orange and green but you should be putting more emphasis on what makes you feel good as an individual.
Declutter and organise

A decluttered space is vital for feeling relaxed and calm which in turn makes you feel happy. Keep on top of things by cleaning regularly and choosing savvy storage that makes lightwork of tidying up.
Be mindful of the things you surround yourself with. Style your living room with tactile materials and recycled goods that will make you feel good. An uplifting coffee table book or two will not only look chic, but inspire you, too. Lighting candles is also a great way to make you feel happy and calm at home.
Bring the outside in

Make your inside and outside spaces feel seamless and fluid. Surrounding your space with plants and letting in lots of light will make you feel generally happier. This has never been more important as we are being encouraged to spend more time inside.
Choose things you connect with
Try and avoid following too many trends and focus on what makes you happy. Whether this is artwork that reminds you of happy memories or investing in luxurious soft furnishings that make you smile everytime you see them. This tip will be different for everyone but is definitely one of the most effective.
