5 IDEAS TO FILL OUR HOME WITH CRAFTED DESIGNS AND GOOD VIBES

FILL OUR HOME WITH CRAFTED DESIGNS AND GOOD VIBES

Shifting to a new house, after almost nine years, gave us some freedom to rearrange our spaces and indulge in our creativity. We do miss the comfort we had in the old place but then what’s life without a few challenges, right? So, hubby and I took advantage of the situation and, with a fresh perspective, decided to fill our home with crafted designs and good vibes.

WALL PAINTS

We love coloured walls. In the old houses, we went a little overboard and chose our favourite colours, like darker shades of teal and brown. Here in the new house, we decided to keep the dark colours for the bedrooms and splurge the walls in the hall and living area with lighter shades. So, we have various colours all over the house, like teal (my favourite), orange and yellow, purple and white, green and white, light green and beige, etc. It feels great when we enter and see colours instead of the age-old whitewash.

After we bought the sofa and coffee tables from IKEA, Bangalore, we decided to get some unique home decor to spice up the place with designs. I loved the red floor cushion. It’s soft, eclectic and big enough for our comfort. Ordering from the website was a breeze and I received the product in less than a week.

SUCCULENT PLANTS

In the corners, or whenever you receive a bouquet of roses, you can place some brightly coloured vases to fill the place with decorative patterns and positive vibes.

Placing succulent plants, around the house, is a good option as they keep the air clean and pure.

BED COVERS

Initially, we would always buy solid-coloured bedsheets as long as they felt soft. But off late, we have been hunting for breathable bed covers with designs. Recently, we got an Indian-crafted cotton bedsheet with a Mandala design on it. Mandalas represent the circular universe and its creation is said to guide the mind to enlightenment. They are also said to help improve mental health which in turn gives you a good night’s sleep. Don’t we all need that to function properly?

PRAYER ROOM

If you’re a believer, a dedicated prayer room or altar is definitely a must. We’re Catholic, so, we have a small altar in the hall. There is a certain feeling of warmth in knowing that someone up there is looking out for us every day of our lives. Do you feel it, too?

Being comfortable in our own home and feeling ‘Home-Sweet-Home’ when we get back is a sign that our house allows us to be calm and free from stress. This should be our comfort zone or the story of our everyday lives. So, if you haven’t already, try and implement the above tips to fill your space with good vibes and smiles. If you have, I would love to know more about how YOU bring positive energies into your home.

    Those vases look interesting. I’m not big on color-blocking walls but love the idea of doing up the house with complementing colors. Having an interior designer mom is definitely an advantage 😀

    Lovely ideas, Cindy. It’s the time to shop till u drop but yes, even virtually it can be exhausting 🙂 The sales all over are so tempting but I am trying to pull the reins. The floor cushion is lovely especially coz it has your precious baby sitting on it.

  11. Madhu Bindra says:

    Great ideas. I really liked the bed cover. When my husband was in the army, we used to change house every two years. I used to enjoy trying out new things.

  12. Playing with Wall paint is my favorite when it comes to decoration. Lovely suggestion, Cindy. I am just waiting for Diwali shopping now.

  13. Succulent plants do add a dash of finess to the entire decor.

  14. Samata says:

    I just loved the floor cushion concept that you implemented in your home decor plans. If you ask me my personal choices then it will be little bit of greenary indoor to get the feeling of being close to nature even when you are indoor.

  15. Swati Mathur says:

    These are such simple yet effective ways to make decorate your house and bring positive vibes. I have done that and that’s why totally agree with you.

  16. Superb ideas Cindy, that red cushion with your cutie pie is lovely. Bedsheet looks beautiful….am going to shop a lot for Diwali. Thanks for sharing this.

  17. Jeannine says:

    Congratulations on your new home! It felt so homey already with all your personal touches. I personally would truly enjoy when that time comes that we get to have our own home as well. For now, I’ll enjoy learning for our home rentals which works well and make sure to incorporate all those learnings when we get to build our own.

  18. Pooja Sriram says:

    I love how you have set up small spaced in your home and these ideas are lovely! I am a fan of floor cushions. With kids its the easiest thing.

  19. Varsh says:

    We’re planning to redecorate and after ordering for wallpapers our next step is IKEA as well. Love their collection, especially home decor.

  20. Succulent plants are my absolute favourite. I love seeing coloured walls, but stick to stark white when it comes to my own home decor!

  21. Kaveri Chhetri says:

    A house as beautiful as yours deserves more than beautiful furnishings Cindy😊. I love the wall colour n the matching curtains. Also the EK cushion…
