Tasteful Decor Can Uplift a Room & Turn a Home into a Haven

There’s no question that we’re all spending a lot more time at home these days. With the previous
hustle and bustle of “normal” life, our homes often turned into some sort of bland hotel room—one
that we would come back to at the end of the day only to sleep and rush out of the next morning. Now
that we’ve been spending more time confined to the four walls of our house, the blank walls, cluttered
tables, and haphazard knickknacks never looked so stark.
With continued stay at home orders, there’s never been a better time to uplift your décor to turn a plain
room into a cozy and elevated home. Here are four simple ways to create a homey sanctuary using
tasteful décor.
Set the mood with warming light.
If you’re like me, you’re likely relieved to have escaped the harsh fluorescent lighting in your office
building. I actually spent more time than I’d like to admit researching the ideal light bulbs for my home
workspace—warm white, cool white? 2,500K or 7,000K?
But did you know that the key to creating an intimate environment is incorporating various sources of
light? In addition to choosing a tasteful lamp or ceiling light, consider soaking in light and warmth from
the flame of a candle. Candles serve as both an understated decoration and a source of peaceful
Choose calming neutralizing colors.
Sometimes the simplest décor can make the greatest “high-end” impact. I like to opt for mostly neutral
colors and then add some coordinating pops of color with throw pillows and blankets. No one wants an
item that sticks out like a sore thumb and distracts from the overall look and feel of a room.
That’s why I like Haven candles—perfectly color neutral and they fit in with any room décor for an
elevated, professionally-decorated appearance.
Minimal doesn’t mean boring.
Nevertheless, neutral colors and minimalism don’t have to mean boring. My Haven candles add just the
right amount of interest and texture with decorative vessels like speckled terrazzo and swirled marble.
Add a personal touch.
I love decorative items that I can personalize to fit my style and home—whether it’s monograms or just
choosing the color scheme or design of a statement piece.
What’s great about Haven is that you can pick from three different candle vessels—marble swirl,
modern concrete, and warm terrazzo—and then choose a scent that fits your mood. It’s my favorite,
easy to create and replenish candle that instantly uplifts my home.
