Make the most of your place by decluttering and organizing, making it tidy and attractive. Manage your system regularly, rethink it from time to time, as life changes.
The feeling of spaciousness will help you breathe better and enjoy your home more, as energy can flow freely.
Go easy on the eyes
Keep the furniture in scale with the room’s size by choosing pieces with low backs, slim arms, and clean lines.
Stay away from dramatic visual elements in the bedroom.
Neutral furnishings are a great way to create a serene environment. You can combine them with colorful accessories or art that pops.
Various textures will make a room inviting by bringing in dimension. Experiment with seagrass, mountain grass, jute, sisal, hemp, bamboo rugs/ screens/ baskets…etc.

Go light when it comes to colors, fabrics, even aroma!
Sheer curtains allow maximum amount of light flooding in without the glare.
Color can shine through or be reflected when you display some transparent, white, or reflective furniture pieces and accessories (mirrors, or even silver candle holders).
White can give a clean frame to your color story, making colors look crispier.
Stay away from dark, heavy fabrics for the season.
Essential oils like spearmint, peppermint, wintergreen can be applied for freshness.
Color is therapeutic: organic colors from nature ease body-mind-soul.
You can avoid calming greens becoming too mellow by throwing in some accessories that stand out.
Fresh greens and blues, the classic combo of blue and white, cool greys, soft and delicate pastels, and candy hues have a lot to offer.
One single color can be relaxing (or energizing) depending on the choice.
Textures and patterns will spice it up.
Earthy items will help ground your space, so it doesn’t get too ethereal.
Indulge in botanicals
You don’t need to paper all your walls with lush tropical forest images. Enjoy botanical motifs in smaller amounts, for example on throw pillows and beddings.
Magnified images of flowers/ plants can be magical, connecting us at a core level with sacred shapes in nature- so Creation.
Real plants with flowers and fruits are most auspicious from a Feng Shui point of view.
Bouquets of (real!) flowers are a great way to bring in the colors of the season and uplift your spirit.
Fruits in a bowl are inviting and symbolize abundance.

Rejuvenate with the whimsical
What sets the stage?
Select your signature fabric/ rug and build your story around it. It’s so much fun!
Don’t shy away from mixing patterns, just let them stay in a common color palette.
The walls should not be left blank when your furnishings are bright. Display colorful artwork for balance.
Take advantage of the support of Feng Shui
Elevate your fun summer home interior project to a higher level: apply Feng Shui principles consciously for the most auspicious energies in your home and in your life.
