We’ve all been cooped up inside for quite some time, and at this point, it’s understandable that you might be getting a little bit tired of your surroundings. Whether you’re staying with your parents, quarantining with a loved one, or in your own abode, chances are you’ve thought about changing up your space. According to Shannon Wollack and Brittany Zwickl of STUDIO LIFE/STYLE this is the perfect time to do it!
This design duo is known for making homes and commercial spaces alike gorgeously chic (I mean, have you seen their IG?) so we’re inclined to believe them. But how do we start revamping our homes ourselves? We chatted with them to learn all about why a clean and cozy space is essential to mental health and how to make your space feel like new (without spending a penny).
Your surroundings can absolutely reflect how you feel. If you are surrounded by disorganization and clutter, it’s easy to feel that way too. If you simply freshen up your space with things like flowers and candles, it can set a peaceful tone that’s much needed for mental health.
Good design can elevate your mood and give a sense of ease. This is critical now that many of us are working from home — living in a space that is both functional and comforting is more important than ever. I find that I need my home workspace to be tidy, have the proper lighting, and have fresh flowers or a candle burning if possible.
I agree, fresh flowers make every space feel warmer! If you don’t want to spend the money buying them, you can forage for branches and flowers in your yard or while out on a walk. I also think rearranging your furniture or accessories can make a space feel fresh. Try taking everything off of your bookshelf and starting over with re-styling it.
