We have all heard the expression "the type of food you eat will affect your general health", however, have you at any point considered applying those words into your home? Might it be able to be genuine, that we are what our home presents? Absolutely!
Your home is a symbolic reflection of what your ideologies and self-represent.
Despite whether you live in, your fantasy home or your first apartment, how you outline and improve your space is an impression of your identity and all that you aspire.
Simplicity in a home is more about refining, then removing. When we live in our homes, we all adopt our personal values in which build the interiors through a physical manifestation.Everyone represents their values in various ways; some may choose to present sentimental objects and memories of important individuals. While others immerse the minimalist lifestyle, allowing their experiences and bodily movements to fill the surrounding space. Those who take on renovations prefer to build new constructions that reflect their everyday activities and values. In this manner, from minimal, to diverse and expansive to little, each living space speaks to its present inhabitants' thought on what is viewed as critical.
Outlined are some basic questions to ask yourself when designing, renovating, or just refreshing your home:
• What interests do you love to do or think you want to do?
• Is there a particular passion?
• What does your dream house envision?
• Are there any strong values or beliefs you have?
These answers will start to help you formulate ideas of your values, beliefs, and aspirations in which you can translate throughout your house. Gather hues, finishes and fixtures that you are drawn to. Look for inspiration via print magazines, online libraries or engage with a professional opinion to help you create a home that is perfect for you. Now that you have the foundations, start room by room. Plan, Plan, Plan and finally execute. Remember there is no right answer. It can be as minimal as possible! Just remember to make sure it reflects you.
