Those little touches that count

To make the most out of your living space – consider a few minor modifications. Besides making sure your interior lighting is integral, a newly reupholstered chair, a comfy footrest, maybe some new bookshelves for all those bestsellers you intend to dig into – you will be surprised how much of a difference small changes, like your lighting, can make in staying home. Add a plush throw blanket, or two, to wrap up in, and make sure your couch is comfy with plenty of squishy pillows. If the weather is getting chilly, a fireplace or woodstove adds to the coziness of the room itself and the warmth emitted relaxes all who enter.  Make sure your interior walls are painted with shades that transmit a calm and stress-free atmosphere in which to totally unwind.
