Try a little happiness


Usually when we are designing our homes we are focused on things like furniture, color, styling, etc. But there are a few other things to consider to make your home, well, a home. 

The first is scent. I am usually drawn to woodsy scents. One of my favorites is Warm Embers by Kobo because it smells like a campfire. If you wear perfume or cologne find something similar to that and you should like the scent.

Sound is a huge part of our life. I listen to podcasts while cooking and music while working. I love the sound of record players. That low fi sound of the record is so warm.

For the high fi of us I love these gramophones for your iphone or ipad. Search gramophone on Etsy and you'll find people mixing old school gramophones with new tech.

Plants are awesome! They add a little life to your home and they also clean your air. I recommend going to a nursery and asking them for plant recommendations. Some plants have are very needy about light and water, but there are definitely some low maintenance plants.
