Your home should restore your emotional well-being. When you live in a space that exudes Soul you’ll naturally feel more positive and grounded. Being comfortable in your environment decreases anxiety and increases contentment.
Soul transforms an ordinary room into a space full of warmth and emotional appeal. Creating a space with Soul not only connects you to your environment, but on a deeper level, to your authentic self.
Two components are needed to create a comfortable environment – visual attraction and emotional appeal. The selection of furnishings, colors, and accessories can create visual appeal but it’s the correct composition of these items that creates emotional appeal. It takes the right balance of colors, textures, and placement to create Soul. If you don’t have Soul in your environment it will feel cold, sterile, or incomplete. Even if an environment is impeccably decorated, if you don’t feel like you can plop down and relax, you’re not connecting with the space on a positive emotional level.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to re-decorate, you can repaint or repurpose things that you already have. Sometimes, just moving a piece of artwork from one room to another will cause you to see the room differently and give you fresh ideas.
Decorating is more than filling a space with things. Decorating is about creating positive emotions by creating Soul in an environment. Not only does an environment need to look harmonized and stylish, more importantly, it should to evoke positive emotions.
