Give your space a personality change!

It's a well known fact that humans are visual creatures. Our brains process visual data before anything else. Everything we see creates an immediate response in our brains, triggering all sorts of things including emotion. Those emotions, how you feel when you walk into a room, are what I like to refer to as the room's personality.

Luckily, for those boring, lonely or sad spaces, it only takes three simple changes to turn them into exciting, inviting, or happy places. I will show you how.

1. Color and Form

You guessed it, put up a piece of art! The art you choose will have a huge impact on the feel of any space. The bigger the piece and more prominently displayed, the more of an effect it will have. When you're choosing your art remember these general guidelines to help you achieve the ambiance you want:

  • Peaceful/Tranquil- White, neutrals, purple, blues and or greens. Flowing soft lines and shapes.
  • Comfortable- Warm earthy tones- think nature. Greens, browns, yellows, neutrals. Soft lines and shapes.
  • Inviting- Soft tones, lines and shapes- lavender, peach, neutrals. 
  • Spacious- Light colors, monotone color scheme, cool colors. Large bold art, or art with perspective to give the room depth.  
  • Cozy- Warm deep colors- reds, browns, oranges, yellows, greens. Soft lines and shapes. 
  • Sophisticated/Contemporary- Black and white or neutral tones with any color combination. Form is more important here, large abstract art, dramatic, geometric lines and shapes.
  • Romantic- Deep reds, purples, plums, dark browns or black, gold. Soft curving lines.
  • Exciting/fun- Primary colors. Try using them together. Red, yellow, blue. Geometric bold shapes and lines.
  • Happy- Orange and yellow, the sunny colors. Soften or add drama with consistent shapes and lines. 

Other great ways to use color and form include painting the walls, adding accents like pillows and throws, vases, plants and furniture updates.

2. Lighting

Unless you're going for a very intimate cozy feel, let the light in! Natural light is generally best to brighten up any space. Opening your blinds or curtains will obviously help or change them to white or light cotton to let the light in. Adding extra lighting with lamps or fixtures can help too.

The temperature of light has a dramatic effect on your space. Warm white bulbs are best for more cozy, intimate, comfortable spaces like bedrooms. Use bright white if you need more of a dramatic or organized feel. Bright white is also good for work spaces such as kitchens.

3. Declutter

This will make you and your space feel better! Unless you are one of those lucky people that actually likes cleaning, making everything shiny and clean is not much fun but it's really worth it for the feeling it gives you and your space when it's all done! 

Do you have any other ideas for transforming your space? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this! Please leave a comment below :)
