A very important form of self-expression is how you decorate the space where you live. It helps you represent the kind of person you are to whoever visits your place. It is the most intimate form of self-expression as it shows people how you live at your most venerable, in your natural habitat. It is one of the few things that are specific only to you. Everything in that space is where it is because you prefer it that way and because it is convenient to your life style. Not only that, it is important for your own mental state because if you customize and decorate your space, you develop a sense of ownership towards it. It makes you feel more at home and comfortable as it should because it is the place you come to for the sake of relaxation after a busy day. It is your safe place and should make you feel like it belongs to you and you alone.
Which is why it is important to pick out every piece you put in it according to your preference. Be it a colorful painting or Southwestern rugs, all of it should scream you. You could go for a cozy look with vibrant colors which make you happy or you could lean towards the minimalistic look which helps your free your mind off of the busy humdrum of everyday life.
There’s a lot of directions you can go towards or even mix it up, whatever floats your boat. It is important however to feel good about your surroundings so you can live a happier life knowing at in all of the mess around you, there is something that only you have control over.
