Stuck at home and staring at that blank corner that needs a little something to bring it to life? Feeling the stress of iso life? Need some fun activities to entertain your little ones?
We’ve go you covered!
Here are 5 quick and easy ideas to make your time at home joyful!
Create texture and warmth in your home by bringing the outdoors in. It’s a well known fact that adding plant life can improve health and wellbeing. While fresh plants can help by purifying air quality and improving mental health, dried flowers and foliage are pleasing to the eye and good for the soul! Plus, if you’re like me, and keeping plants alive ain’t your forte, then dried blooms are a must!
It can be as simple as popping a big beautiful palm leaf in an empty corner, adding a collection of golden toned flowers and foliage to a vase, or finding a piece of driftwood that can become a feature piece in your home.
With our Bloom Bar, you can pick and choose dried foliage and flowers to suit your budget or colour palette – check it out here
Add a warm, earth toned rug or throw to your bedroom or living room to make it cosy. Choosing something with lots of texture will not only add to the cosy factor, but fringing, tassels or woven textures can have a meditative effect. We might all be spending lots of time on the couch watching ‘flix, and there’s nothing better than running your fingers or toes through something soft and fluffy!
