It’s a thought worth referring to when things aren’t going well in life. This phrase is useful to remember when it’s time for a change, but you don’t know where to start or where to go.
Your home is a reflection of your inner world. Your home is a reflection of who you are. Your home is a projection of your life.
Perhaps it’s time to work on yourself through your home? It’s not about magic, but about getting to know yourself and taking a constructive approach to life change. That’s what you need to pay attention to.
1. The predominant color scheme
Did you choose it or did you inherit this interior from the previous tenants?
Maybe it’s time to add some bright spots. Or, on the contrary, to create yourself a more peaceful environment. Or maybe you want something neutral and not distracting.
2. Order or disorder
Are you a creative person and accordingly you have creative clutter in your home, in which you exist harmoniously and create masterpieces? This is your microcosm and your pleasure.
Or clutter is annoying, you get tired of it, it takes away your last strength? Then it’s time to do a general cleaning.
It’s not so much about creating a clear space. It’s that in many life situations you will become clearer and more understandable. Your priorities in the house where order reigns will become clearer.
3. Which style do you prefer?
What do you prefer: light Provence, monumental Baroque, ascetic Loft or universal classics?
This is also in some way a reflection of your personal organization. Or maybe you’ve long dreamed of doing everything in a completely different style? Maybe it’s time to decide to make a change – it’s a step toward accepting yourself. And an opportunity to give yourself more freedom.
4. Functionality and practicality
Is your home comfortable? Is everything at your fingertips? Is it comfortable to move around the house unobstructed? Is there thoughtful zoning, special locations for different situations? Or did you just buy furniture and decorations and put them wherever you could or because it pleases the eye?
Maybe you should look at things more rationally, work on functionality in the house accordingly. Or, on the contrary, add a beautiful, bright element just for fun.
5. Do you furnish your home ahead of time or do you buy everything as needed?
If you are a fan of nostalgia, you probably tend to keep things for a long time (and generally like to dig into the past). In this case, the house very quickly becomes cluttered with all sorts of knickknacks that remind you of the bright moments.
If you prefer not to clutter up the space, and do not see the point in stockpiling “for a rainy day”, then it is likely that in life you move quite dynamically (and your house is arranged as rationally as possible).
6. A welcoming home or a homebody’s den
Do you often invite guests into your home? Or is it just your territory, your nest, that you protect from prying eyes? Much of this is based on whether you are an extrovert or an introvert.
That’s not an exhaustive list of criteria. It’s a hike from which you can draw.
Look at your home: what do you like about it, and what has long been annoying? Everything is interconnected. As you change, your house changes. As your house changes, then you change.
