The area of self-care and home designs are becoming more intertwined. These days, most people rely more on their home environments to boost their mood and an overall sense of well-being. Optimizing your home for happiness and creating a safe space to decompress and disconnect from the days' hassle is very necessary, especially in today's climate.
The best interiors are the ones that allow us to shut out all of the noise and access a peaceful sanctuary within their own space.
As we tend to shy away from discarding old or excess stuff, maybe because they hold sentimental value or they might even be useful.
Either way, It is better not to have too many stuff lying around. You stop noticing and caring about the details, thereby losing control of both your home and its design.
If by any means you have to keep old stuff, it should be something that evokes a sense of histories such as vintage furniture or a treasured travel souvenir.
When designing a new house, many celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, often request spaces for reflection and silence. Craft corners, reading nooks, prayer, and meditation rooms, and even yoga corners are top of their list.

The idea of optimizing home wellness and design has also seeped into our travel and lifestyle choices. A few years back, when we were booking hotels, things like hotel designs didn't matter to us.
Nowadays, before booking a hotel or vacation spot, we ask:
- what the design of the bathrooms is like?
- What is the location of the pool and gym?
- Does it have a spa?
Social platforms like Instagram and Pinterest or even blogs can help homeowners curate their interests and create a home design that reflects their personality and taste. The design consciousness of people has been elevated based on their access to information.
People do not just plan their home designs on these platforms; they also expect their weddings and the next meal.
Your best shot is carving a home that feels safe and warm is by figuring out what design style best suits you before pulling out your credit card. When our homes are better, we do better.
Our house makes a huge difference in how we move through the world. At the end of the day when we come home, and we light that candle and close the doors, we want to know that we're surrounded by the things we choose and love.
