Brighten up your life

Are the winter blues getting you down? Why not brighten up your life by adding more vibrant colours to your surroundings and kicking the heat up a notch in the kitchen. Colours can conjure up various feelings from positivity to frustration to relaxation. In the wintery months, moods tend to dip which is why the addition of warmth through colour, texture and hearty recipes will ensure a more comforted feeling.

Functional working spaces at home

Space in a home can be limiting at times, especially when wanting to create a work space free of clutter, and sticky fingers. A working or office space at home needs to encourage focus and creativity, without over-indulging the senses with the relaxing feeling that accompanies being at home.

Happy healthy families in the kitchen

To encourage happy healthy families, there are a number of activities one can do to create a sense of relaxation in the home, whether it be lounging around playing board games with the children, going for walks or teaching them about healthy eating. These kinds of activities promote a sense of calm and togetherness, which is often not experienced in today’s busy world.

Bringing your Child’s Room to Life

Decorating a child’s room can be a dream for some, and a nightmare for others. The trick is to compromise with the ideas, while maintaining a sense of peace and functionality.

Fast Desserts
