Frame your memories


One reason we click photographs is to look back in time and relive the days gone by. But, to have those photographs hidden in some corner of your home is certainly not a good idea. Sit down and pull out the cheekiest and the best photographs from your wedding and honeymoon albums, and frame them.  We recommend that you have at least one wall in your home that celebrates your love and relationship! Whenever you are having a rough time, look at the happy photographs and feel the magic thereafter!

Give your home an aromatherapy


Most of us associate homes with a certain aroma and why not, it is what first greets you when you enter a house! A happy fragrance is all it takes to bring a smile on a frowning face. Here is how you can give your home an aromatherapy makeover and add scents of love in your house:
  • Use an aromatherapy burner or diffuser to spread a whiff of your favourite fragrance within your room. Not only will it uplift your mood, but will also add a romantic charm to your life.


  • You can also use incense sticks to spread earthly fragrances in your home.
  • Make it a point that you buy the fragrances and essential oils of a reputed brand because the market is flooded with fake scents that are a total rip-off.
  • Some oils that appeal to almost everyone include lavender, eucalyptus and tea tree.
  • If you or your sweetheart have health concerns or asthma, consult a doctor lest you will suffer inadvertently.

Paint the walls


Your house is an extension of your personality. And, the colour of your walls is a window to it. From a vibrant magenta bedroom to a sunny yellow living room, it is completely up to you. Choose from a spectrum of colours and interior décor ideas. So, wear your thinking caps and paint your walls together! Going gutsy or sombre is your decision, but it should make you feel happy and not grumpy. Are we headed to the market already?

Indoor garden


Who doesn’t like fragrance of fresh flowers and colours of beautiful buds ready to bloom? We are sure you and your better half have for long been dreaming of an indoor garden (rooftop or in balcony). Now is the time to execute your pending plan. Invest some time and money in renovating the empty space in your home and pumping life into it. Paint the mundane pots in neon colours, use empty wine bottles for money plants and use empty tin cans for flower beds! There is nothing better than enjoying a cup of coffee together amongst beautiful flowers!

Declutter and organise


Instead of cribbing about not having enough space to keep your stuff, just take up the challenge of decluttering your home together. We are sure you will find stuff that needs to be given or thrown away, whether dated paperwork, books or old clothes! Get down to cleaning your wardrobe and rearranging your furniture to let positive energy flow in your house.
 
These makeovers will give you and your beloved some 'happy kicks'!
