Normally, an easy way to brighten up the house is fresh cut flowers, either from the yard or store bought. I love fragrant flowers to brighten my mood. Even just opening the windows and smelling the fresh air instantly makes me feel better.
Baking! Though I don't have energy for it this week. The smell of fresh baked bread or molten chocolate always makes the house feel happy. Some mellow music ~ or dance music ~ instantly makes me smile! Some good Latin music always makes me want to move. On a cold night, there isn't anything better than the fireplace, I love having a fireplace.
Of course, longer term, adding some color to my home has made me so happy - even as simple as painting an accent wall, changing the bedding or new artwork. We If you want to see more of my home - check out the home tour :)
The most important way to make my home happy - of course - is the making sure the people in it are happy! Who could be sad when they get to come home to smiles like these!
