1. Enjoy natural light
It’s proven that when we’re exposed to natural light, our quality of life improves and so does our sense of wellbeing. Our advice is to make the small illuminated corners a comfortable and relaxed space where you can read, play sports or just rest. Don’t waste those little rays of sunshine in unfurnished corners and accommodate them, for example, with a comfortable sofa and an interesting book
2. Aromas of happiness
The freshness provided by scented candles, oils or incense are fragrances that evoke all kinds of places, sensations or emotions that produce vitality and improve your mood. In addition, they provide a lot of play, since their wide variety of colors, sizes and shapes allow multiple uses. A few rustic candles accompanied by succulent plants will create a beautiful and natural centerpiece for a large table in your dining room. Or if you like more relaxing atmospheres, we suggest some light floating candles, flowers and a glass bowl filled with water. Also to recreate more intimate and romantic spaces, we bet on red candles in the shape of a heart on a black plate and white sand, ideal for your bathroom.
3. Add a layer of color to your life
Breaking up with monochromatism is a good option, so give life and color to one of your rooms. You can opt for something more striking like pastel colors or perhaps warmer like earth tones, but the important thing is to create a contrast that fills you up with energy and gives dynamism to your home. If you don’t know what color to use, this 2021 trend is “Illuminating”, Pantone’s choice for the year, a vibrant and cheerful yellow: a cozy tone that reminds us of the sun’s energy.

From a decorative point of view, the goal is to look for spaces that favor rest. The main objective is relaxation with a very sustainable style, recreating natural spaces such as rivers, mountains or beaches. This effect will be achieved with decorations in earth tones, wooden furniture or handcrafted details such as decorated vases in which to include fresh flowers that produce a feeling of warmth in the home.
10. Your bedroom, your refuge
We spend more than a third of our lives in our bedroom, specifically in our bed. That’s why it’s so important that your bedroom recreates the peace you need, so forget about rough sheets! Give yourself the pleasure of lying on soft cotton or lyocell ones, which reinforce the feeling of comfort and well-being. Blue, green and ochre colors are more suitable for the afternoon/evening and will help you rest better. In addition, the brain retains the last colors before going to sleep, so forget about reds or pinks that are more strident. Try to create a place where you can be comfortable and calm, away from an overloaded decoration. The simpler it is, the greater the sense of well-being.
