Human beings, as a collective, have been spending a lot more time indoors. Some of us have welcomed this with open arms, seeing this as an opportunity to take a step back and reflect. While others, not so much. I understand, though. There’s something about being in the same space day in and day out that feels kind of claustrophobic. There are ways to open up and cleanse the space that you live in. Make it a point to regularly sweep, dust, and mop. Clear out any clutter scattered around. Pop open a window or two to let some fresh air in. Perhaps, it’s time for a change of scenery? Why not try your hand at repainting your living space? We have some lovely, perfectly hygge hues for you to choose from.
