What you surround yourself with plays a big role in your mood and mental health as a whole. When you have cheerful surroundings, in terms of playful colours and happy people you’re bound to feel happier. It’s also going to make it easier for you to enjoy being at home even during the ongoing pandemic.

A few simple touches here and there can help you make your home more inviting without having to change everything.

If you want to make your home a place you enjoy, read on.

1. Make a statement wall

If you can get your hands on some paint, now is the time to experiment with wall colours. Try a bold colour, like pink, navy blue or dark green. You can choose to either paint one wall or an entire room. It’s all up to you.

5. Get new bedding

If you’re tired of the same, plain bedsheets in neutral colours like white and grey, why not get new ones. Try patterns like florals, prints of animals like birds or shapes. You can go as bold as makes you comfortable
