Top 10 Home Décor Influencers you need to Follow on Instagram ASAP6 minute
As they say “Home is Where the Heart Is”. When it comes to decorating our homes, we all want an abode that is welcoming, comfortable and beautiful, isn’t it? We believe the way you decorate your home says a lot about your personality and can be an expression of yourself. Whether you’re a modern interior design enthusiast or have a fondness for a Bohemian-style house, you are how you decorate.
Studies also reveal that decorating your home can be good for your mental health. There is also a term for it called neuro architecture. It refers to the relationship of the body and brain towards the built environment.
If you think of it, emotional wellbeing each day starts and ends within the four walls of our home. The layout, space and colours have a direct effect on our general mood. Thus, home décor can be extremely therapeutic too.
In the quest of redecorating a home or building from scratch, a lot of people rely on interior design blogs, Pinterest for DIY home décor ideas or simply do it on their own.
No matter which stage you’re at in your home décor journey, seeking a little design inspiration can always help you decorate a space that is trendy yet timeless.
