I don’t care if your house is a big ball of crazy. Wacky color schemes and eclectic furniture? Awesome. Into simple neutrals? That’s great too! Your home needs to make YOU happy. But … if you walk into a room and describe it as boring and uninspiring? Well honey. That just won’t do.
That’s exactly how my good friend Adrienne felt about her bedroom. As a super busy working mom of four young boys (with a girl on the way!), her bedroom’s decor just wasn’t high on the list of priorities.
But who deserves a restful retreat at the end of the day more than busy moms? Literally the only group of people I can think of are like, ER surgeons.
So when HomeGoods invited me to be part of their Happy Home Resolutions contest, I hopped, skipped, and jumped at the chance! First of all, I frickin’ LOVE HomeGoods, and second of all, that meant I could help Adrienne go from this:
When a national study found that making small changes to your home’s decor can measurably boost your mood, HomeGoods was like, “Yeah! We know!” They used those findings to create their six “Happy Home Resolutions,” to share easy ways for you to improve your home’s happiness.
The resolution I was asked to focus on was improving a room’s mood with decorative accessories. Yay, my favorite! I’ve long said that anyone can put a bed in a bedroom, but it’s that extra 10% that really make a room special.
Adrienne’s room had the very basics: a bed, two nightstands, and two lamps. We needed to take it to the next level with some decor. But to me, accessories are more than just knick-knacks taking up space. They need to bring different elements to a room:
And my favorite element of all: something shiny!
Does this room not seem 1000% happier already? Just looking at the pictures makes me happy.
