Re: 🏡 What do you do to create “joyous” home environment?🏡

I find joy in a clean and ordered home.....lots of pillows, candles and fresh flowers are my favorites. Also, books.....I have them in every room except the bathrooms.

 

Love good food cooking, too.

Re: 🏡 What do you do to create “joyous” home environment?🏡

Keeping a clean, uncluttered and organized home helps a lot to bring me joy.

Each room must be decorated in a way that makes me feel proud, peaceful and happy! 

I am working on the last room that needs my touch. Saved the most difficult and important room for last: the kitchen. Getting it together now and plan to get the reno underway in about 3 weeks. Can't wait! A small-ish job and budget, but a big change and improvement.

Most important must have to create my joyous home enviornment on a daily basis-

my dog.

Had to ask DH how to answer this one. He said we don't spend time arguing, I put out cute seasonal decorations, and while the house is tidy, I put comfort over looks.

 

I pretty much agree with that.

Tidy home, tasteful decor. Careful not to raise voices, except for laughter. A net for people in need.

I ‘get’ you.  I have studied feng shui and have incorporated a bit into our home, wish I knew more.  It is so logical to me. Our home was built to face SE.

 

At the start of our relationship we agreed that Home was our safe place, only loved ones, and close friends are invited.  Any work, or public entertaining we do is done away from home.

I keep the house free of clutter.  Decor fits the season.  The furniture in the living area is comfy and inviting.
