“You have done what you could—some blunders and absurdities have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
A “little birdie” told me 10 tips to refresh your home and yourself in the new year…..and I’m going to share them with you!

After taking down the holiday decorations, sometimes your home can feel a little dull. Brighten things up with a gorgeous lamp from Bali. These lamps create a wonderful glow of ambient light to make a room feel comfortable and warm. So many pretty designs, colours and styles for you to choose from.
TIP #2: BRING THE OUTSIDE IN
Every home needs a little botanical. It’s not lush outside, so make it tropical indoors. We have several natural looking permanent florals and greenery in store. Create your own masterpiece and personalize your space. Need a little help with your design? Let us inspire you!
TIP #3: UPDATE ACCESSORIES
Just as you’d add a scarf or necklace to enhance an outfit, do the same with your home. Dress your home like you would yourself. Look for great accent pillows and textiles with colour. A little pop of colour is all you need to make your decor feel new and fresh.
TIP #4: SOOTHE YOUR SENSES There’s nothing better than walking into a home and having a glorious fragrance fill your senses. We have amazing incense from India created by perfumists and the scents are incredible. We have ten aromas to choose from to create a fresh and rejuvenating feeling for yourself and your guests.

You love your treasures. You’ve got an assortment of statues in every room! Centralize your collection in one spot so your space looks organized and your visitors can truly enjoy it. It gives a more dramatic effect. If it’s a small collection, anchor it on a tray.
