Follow these ten simple steps that will be sure to add personality to your property.

In Living Color

The quickest way to shift the energy of a room is to paint the walls. Brighter colors promote vibrance while calmer colors give off a soothing effect.

When in doubt, Throw it out

Don't let your possessions possess you. If you haven't used an item in six months to a year, it's time to part with it.

Get the Pictures

Showcase all the members of your household (even those that have since moved off to college) with personalized picture frames that display the individuality of each loved one.

Light a Candle.

Scented candles can set the mood for any occasion. Remember to always extinguish the flame before leaving the room. 

Make your scene green.

Plants provide healthy oxygen and are proven to raise the moods of those that keep them. You can find maintainable flora at your local home-improvement store.

Keep it warm and friendly.

Studies show that a warmer environment makes people more pleasant. Raising your thermostat will also save you additional money which is another reason to be happy.

Home cooked meals make common scents.

The aroma of a home cooked meal when you walk through the door is comforting and appetizing. Gather the entire family around the table for some good ole fashioned eats a few times a week.

Get into the holiday spirit.

Decorating your home during the holidays is a fantastic way to show off your household's festive side. It will bring your family closer together and make the season's more memorable.


Invite family and friends over for a night of fun, food, and games. Having company over can lift the spirits in your home and create a more vibrant atmosphere.

There goes the neighborhood.

Go outside and meet your neighbors. Scheduling play-dates with your children is a perfect way for you to engage with the people you share your community with.
