It's spring season. Mercury is out of retrograde. What better time to cleanse your home of all that negative energy and reclaim it as your sacred space? You don't need to splurge big bucks to get your home feeling like your sweet escape from the world. Even minor details can make a big difference and these are some ways to improve the vibes in your home.

 

Plants and flowers

Plants and flowers are a sign of life. If you've been feeling like your house just feels dead lately, adding some greenery or flora might be just the thing to bring that spark back into your home. The best part is that plants don't have to be high maintenance to do the trick. Check out this post to find the right plant for you.

 

Personalized furniture

Don't worry, we're not suggesting you try to buy custom-made furniture. You can take a piece of furniture you already have and give it a facelift. Maybe you can add new handles to a dresser, paint a fun pattern, or decoupage some pretty paper. Any space will feel more like your own when you fill it with pieces that you made with love yourself.

Candles

Candles can make all the difference in your home for multiple reasons. Scented candles can make any space smell amazing and what's more comforting than a home filled with your favorite aroma? For the spiritual gal, a candle that helps cleanse your chakra is even better.

 

Lighting

Speaking of candles, lighting can completely change the vibe of a room. Harsh overhead lights can be really draining and create a really stark ambiance. One of the easiest ways to warm the space up is by playing with the lighting. Candles are a good option but you can also go with faux candles, string lights, or varying lamps throughout the room to make the space feel more cozy and welcoming.

 

Books

There's nothing like a good book to pass the time and escape from a stressful day. Gathering a collection of your favorite books and putting them on display is another way to liven up your home with all your fondest adventures. Coffee table books also create a welcoming vibe for guests. What's more inviting for a guest than a book that offers a quick light read on an interesting topic?

Cozy rugs

A bare floor can make your home feel empty so adding a nice rug or two can really add depth to a space. Plus having a soft floor to rest your feet on is sure to make you never want to leave. You don’t have to invest in one large floor rug, instead strategically place smaller rugs in areas where you step most often like next to your bed or in front of your couch.

 

Cleanse your home

We don't mean cleaning your clutter but rather removing bad energy. If you want to do this, get your hands on some sage, frankincense, or healing crystals and get to it. Even if you don't believe in this practice, doing it can help you metaphorically erase bad thoughts and uplift your mindset.

These may be small details but they can go a long way. If your home hasn't been feeling like a safe haven from the stresses of the world lately, then now is the perfect time to reset the whole vibe. At the end of the day, the love in a home always comes from the little details.
