Interior Design For Beginners [May 2020]

Here are a few things that can improve the mood of your home

Rounded furniture: It’s easy to forget that human beings are animals, and we’re not made to live among hard-edged geometric shapes. After all, those don’t exist in the natural world! Our brains still associate hard shapes with sharp rocks, so angular furniture makes you feel threatened on a subconscious level. Therefore, living with a bunch of sharp squares and rectangles in your house can take a toll on your mental health over time. But, furnishing your home with rounded, organic shapes will put your brain at ease and help you relax.

(Here’s a link for reference to the types of furniture I’m talking about:

A big, neutral-colored painting: Even if you’re not an art-lover, hanging a big, abstract painting in your room can improve the mood of your home. The more minimalistic and neutral it is, the better. A tan, white, or grey painting, possibly with some accent colors, will act as a focal point on your wall. It will draw your eye toward it whenever you’re in the room, which will allow your brain to rest for a few seconds. This is a particularly great way to lighten the energy in a small room that would otherwise feel claustrophobic.

A clutter-catcher basket: Clutter can really put a damper on your mood. Even small things like keys, batteries, and spare change on the counter can make your home feel disorganized, which can make you feel anxious and depressed. By placing decorative baskets around your home, you’ll have a place to hide those little pieces of clutter until you have time to put them away. But in the meantime, you won’t have to let that unsightly junk ruin your mood!
