Is your home or office a one-dimensional decorated spaces? Meaning, uniformly bland painted walls like you see in an elementary school or high school, or the boring and unappealing walls of a hospitals. We all know the reason schools and hospitals are painted this way, to avoid drawing attention away from studying, focusing on other things or relaxing your brain. However, painting your home this way may be a bad idea for so many reasons. We all spend a good amount of time in our homes and of course we all want our homes to be a place of relaxation however, we also need our homes to show our personality. If you have solid colored wall and need a quick fix add some patterns to your textiles. Some thing as simple as adding throw pillows could change the look and feel of the room in a matter of seconds.
