Good Energy for Your Home in anticipation of Summer

Summer is the perfect time to reinvigorate your living space and create positive energy inside your home. Whether you want to maximise daylight, increase biophilic values, or merely add vibrancy to your decor, these ideas will help you create a fresh and engaging atmosphere for the season.

Good Energy for Your Home in anticipation of Summer

Maximise Daylight

Maximising the natural light in your home is the first step towards embracing a summery mood. So roll up your sleeves and start by cleaning your windows to ensure they allow for a clear view. Remove heavy drapes or replace them with sheer curtains letting sunlight filter through. Position mirrors strategically to reflect light and make your space appear more expansive. Consider rearranging furniture to avoid blocking windows and creating a clear path for sunlight to flow into the room.

Biophilic Principles

Embracing nature and biophilic design is the perfect way to enhance the positive energy in your home. Bring the outdoors in by incorporating plants and greenery throughout your living area. Choose easy-to-care-for varieties like spider plants, pothos, or succulents, as they purify the air and add freshness to a room. Consider introducing natural materials such as wood, stone, or bamboo into your decor as these elements ground your design and provide connectivity to the earth.

Change Cushions and Soft Furnishings

Put away the winter tones and embrace the summer with vibrant, sun-inspired hues. Swap out your dark or neutral-coloured cushions, throws, and rugs for ones in bright, cheerful shades. Plump for this year’s trend colours of heather, spearmint green or peach /plaster tones to introduce energy and warmth. Mix and match patterns or experiment with mismatching prints to add playfulness instantly transforming the mood of a room.

Declutter

A clutter-free environment is essential for a positive and energising home. Use the opportunity to declutter and organise your living space, room by room. Start with the areas that tend to accumulate the most clutter, such as countertops, entranceways, and closets. Do away with items you no longer need or use and find designated storage solutions for the essentials. A clean and organised space looks appealing and contributes to a calm and stress-free environment.

Fix/Replace Broken Items

Broken or faulty items can disturb the flow of positive energy in your home. Take time to fix any broken furniture, appliances, or fixtures. Replace burnt-out light bulbs to ensure your space is well-lit. By addressing these small issues, you will create a harmonious environment that promotes relaxation and well-being.
