Say Goodbye to All That Negative Energy!

Now that it’s October (known as the “spooky” month), people tend to bring out sage and light incense to get rid of all the negative energy in the home. We, as designers, have a few ideas and tricks we use that you can do in your home as well to sweep out all that negative energy and bring in the positive spirit!

Remove Clutter

This is a pretty well known action to getting ride of bad energy, because when clutter is around, it tends to add a feeling of extra stress and tiredness. Objects themselves tend to hold an intensity which is directly affected by where they are placed, so go ahead and find a home for every object in each room. You will feel a lift off your shoulders immediately when the room is less cluttered.

Use Neutral Colors

Every color has its own personality. Red is known as a power color that also tends to make you hungry; yet, light blue happens to be soothing, relaxing, and is known to project loyalty. Sometimes when you use colors that have so much behind them, it’s overwhelming with the things you already have going on in your life. Most importantly, try to stay away from dark colors. They can look great in a room, but they make spaces look smaller when you don’t want to feel crammed.

Fall Cleaning

Do a little Fall cleaning. Everyone always feels accomplished after cleaning. It’s a thing. You just always feel more comfortable in your home. Wipe down all surfaces, make all the beds, vacuum every room, etc. Do anything that needs to be done or that you haven’t done since Spring Cleaning. (Some of that cleaning needs to be done more than once a year.)

Go Green

Welcoming plants into your home is always a great and easy way to clear the negative energy in the air. The plants themselves actually clean the air toxins, and they’re just purely good feng shui. Plants present the idea of growth and creativity which will certainly bring about good energy to any room.

Essential Oils

#FridayFavorites: Silestone International

Silestone International is such a great company with a variety of incredible tiles to choose from, and that is why we have picked them to be our #FridayFavorites this week! What exactly is Silestone you ask? They are the world’s leading producer of quartz surfaces. Their surfaces have so many great qualities that have gotten the company up to this ranking, including high stain resistance, high acidity resistance, scratch resistance, and high impact resistance just to name a few. They come in a very wide range of colors and textures, and even though they all look so different, every product uses natural quartz.

We always have Silestone on display in our store, so come by and check out some of their products yourself! Come see how great of a variety they have…
