Sema baridi lol! But I just did a 20 minute work out and I now have all this energy. I'm listening to an inspirational video while typing. Have you ever thought about the law of attraction? Hmm...
My post today is about decorating your house. I've seen on TV people can change the color of their walls or even add installments to their rental homes. That's a dream in Nairobi. Landlords don't really allow you to change anything. So here's what I do to try and quieten my creative mind.
First in my bedroom, where I spend most of my time, the cushions are of different colors. My pillow cases, the same. This allows for the room to look a bit more decorated, like you put in some effort yoh!
Second, in my sitting room I have hang a colored cloth, sort of draping on the wall. This breaks the monotony of the plain color of the wall. Almost making the wall look like a painting. The cloth has a floral print. Make sure the cloth you choose has a color similar to the wall so that it matches, or not; you can make it abstract too.
Scent is also an important part in a home. I like incense; Jasmine and Lavender are my favorite. Your nose is important and I believe pleasing the senses makes for a comfortable home. Remember in my last post I spoke about soft pillows and the feeling on your toes? Some people prefer air fresheners that come in the aerosol cans, I like the more natural products.
Another way to spice up the color in your home is to have differently colored curtains so that when you was and switch them out, you get a new experience each time.
