The festivities have passed, and the new year is here. It’s the ideal time to get your house back in order and set a few new resolutions for your home. The saying goes; home is where your heart is, but a more sustainable, better-organized, and comfortable place to live will work wonders.

5 tips to create a prosperous, more harmonious living space this year.

As per the Chinese Zodiac, 2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit and is expected to be a year of longevity, peace, prosperity, and healing. But when it comes to good Feng Shui, bringing the earth element into your home this year is key. Lucky colours are azure blue, apple green, red and pearl white. 

1. Introduce the element of earth; Wood

Get in touch with nature by introducing more natural materials such as wood. Wood represents health, wealth, family and prosperity. Bringing in the outdoors can create more harmony and energy indoors.

2. Add a Pop of Colour

Lucky colours are azure blue, apple green, red and pearl white. If changing your wall colour feels too much of a commitment, introduce colour to the room using accessories. Cushions are the easiest way to do this: choose two or three hues and then mix plain cushions with patterned ones to add interest to a sofa. Use rugs and wall art to weave in some colour that will really ‘pop’ against a plain background. Decorative accessories like vases or candles grouped by colour make an eye-catching display.

3. Declutter and Get Organised

Declutter and welcome a calm vibe by investing in multifunctional pieces that can safely store items away. Get your book collection organised, or showcase your plant babies with a beautiful shelf. 

4. Create the Perfect Chill Zone

Create a designated space for relaxation where you can light a few candles and rest away your blues. And nothing quite says comfy like the sofa of your dreams. Compact corner sofas are an excellent solution for optimum use of the available space and corners in the living room.
