What Makes a Happy Home

Is cultivating a happy home on your list of New Year’s Resolutions?  There are countless design secrets to bring inner enlightenment to your surroundings, but according to a recent article on Realtor.com, it turns out several factors are external.

The article explored various studies that indicated long commutes, relationships with neighbors, and the amount owed on mortgages all play significant roles in how happy your home can be. Other more manageable factors include cutting down on clutter, painting walls in hues of green or yellow, and conquering long overdue or dream renovations.

Happy home tips from other designers and lifestyle experts include installing a home security system (a sense of security does wonders for peace of mind), integrating furniture with curves (makes a room more inviting), creating an outdoor living space, adding small elements of whimsy or playfulness, and decorating with themes and pieces that you love.
