As the chilly autumn winds have arrived and the crispy winter colds are also soon upon us, it’s time to make sure that you have a warm and safe nest, where you can charge your batteries and feel at peace. When the dark months arrive, we spend much more time inside and therefore it’s important to make your home as comfortable as possible. Today, we share some tips on, how to do that with little touches that don’t take too much time, but make a big difference in how your home feels and looks like.
Out with the old, in with the new
Start off by getting rid of all the old energies to make room for new and positive vibes. Take time to properly clean your home nest and donate or get rid of all the things that you don’t really use anymore. The less things you have, the more air and space you will have at your home, because energy can’t flow, if your home nest is filled with stuff. Better fill it with good people and positive vibes. Once you have got rid of the old energies it’s time to bring in the new energies. One of the easiest ways to do that is to decorate your home with some plants or your favorite flowers. Also, if you happen to already own one of our energy necklaces, then hang it somewhere visible, where it can enhance the good vibes in your home.
Being happy and motivated is not something that will happen overnight - it helps to have some positive affirmations around to remind you that you already have a lot to be grateful for. Since most of us spend the majority of our time at home or at work, use some inspirational reminders as part of your home or workplace decorations. That can be anything from a picture of your dream travel destination, a quote you live by or something that reminds you that we all have wings, but it’s up to us to spread them and fly. Our lifestyle posters are perfect for that! They are simple and minimal, but still add a little pop of colour and nature to your home walls.
Light up your home
Another way of bringing warmth and comfort to your home, is by burning candles! Be smart and make your home environment healthier by using candles that are made of soy wax. They are environmentally friendly because soy wax candles don’t emit any toxins while burning and they don’t consist of any artificial ingredients. Also, due to the fact that soybeans can be reproduced each year - they are a renewable source of energy. Moreover, soy wax candles are biodegradable and burn slower than paraffin candles, which means they use less oxygen for the burning process. To create the right ambience and smell in your home, choose aroma candles, that are enriched with high quality pure essential oils since these candles also support your general well-being.

Decorating your home is the key to making it look unique and stand out from the generation of IKEA homes. Look for one-of-a-kind decoration pieces, that you like and that reflect who you are. Depending on your style, you can find great treasures from antique stores, flea markets or fancy boutique shops. However, sometimes it helps to look around at things you already own and find new and clever ways to exhibit them in your home.
For example, we have received many pictures from our dear clients about how they show off their butterfly brooches at home, when they are not wearing them. Thanks to the pin needle attachment, it’s easy to attach them on curtains, lamps, put them on flowers, etc. Just be creative and think outside of the box!
The secret of feeling good at home is not only about how your home feels, but how YOU feel and a big part of that is what you wear. Did you know that wearing clothes made of synthetic materials create static electricity around you that create tension and can make you feel drained at the end of the day? That’s why it’s important to wear clothes that are made of natural materials. Also, bear in mind that home clothes don’t need to be old rags that you just don’t want to throw away. Our “Inspired by Nature” T-shirt is a good example of comfort meeting style. The airy and flowy design of the T-shirt does not only make you look good, but also feel good because it’s made of organic cotton - a material that feels like someone is giving you a hug all day long.
There you go! These are five simple tips you can use to make the most of the time you spend at your home castle. Remember, we all need a place to charge batteries and hide from time to time, so make sure your home is a place that gives you energy not drains you form it.
