Make your home a Haven

Our homes should be a place to feel centred and connected – a retreat from the pressures of life. Here are some simple ways to create your own personal hideaway. Whilst it’s nice to be busy and spend time connecting with friends and family,how often do you take the time to connect with yourself and the space around you?After a day or week filled with work, family and social commitments, it’s important to carve out time and space for yourself. This space should allow you to switch off, recharge and reconnect with what’s most important to you personally.The way in which we live and the environments we create for ourselves play a huge part in our overall wellbeing and happiness. With this in mind, we should think of our home as a haven – somewhere free of clutter and full of uplifting and energising spaces away from the frenetic energy of the outside world.
Fill your home with beautiful blooms
Fresh flowers are a fantastic way to add a pop of colour and freshness and work well when brightening the darkest of spaces. I love having a pretty bunch of tulips next to my bed.  It’s such a great way to wake up in the morning. When picking out a vase to match your gorgeous blooms, a great starting point is to think about where your flowers will be placed.For example if it’s on a dining table or coffee table setting, than  a shorter vase would be more suitable. I also like to have at least one vase to match my colour scheme, 1 textured and 1 or two vases  in white.  You can also never go wrong with a simple glass vase.  CountryRoad and Adairs stock a great range of vases to suit most budgets as does Target.
Bring the outside in
Indoor plants are known to help increase overall well-being and health. Introducing a potted plant to your bedroom, lounge or office space can really help to create a sanctuary-like feel,whilst making your space beautiful. And no plant is complete without a beautiful planter in which to house it. One of my all time favourite plant pots in my home was an ugly old black pot that I painted a beautiful pink, it really makes an impact and certainly was a lot cheaper than a designer pot. Bunnings and Kmart stock a great range of planters and pots, and if the colours don’t suit, then simply give them a coat of paint to suit your style.If you’re not keen on the DIY than Design Twins or Pop and Scott stock a divine range of on trend pots and planters.  My go to indoor plant would have to be the Fiddle Leaf Fig, a very low maintenance plant that really delivers on style.  A great indoor plant that can easily grow to over 2 meters. String of pearls and Mother in Law’s tongue are also a great starting point for your first indoor plants
