1.Playful Hanging Lamps:
Every night when you retire from the day to take shelter in your dreams, the last thing you see or hear or the last thought on your mind takes the shape of your dreams. Replace the bedside table lamp with a playful hanging lamp from the ceiling or on the corners will light up the mood as well as a lamp in the form of a piece of art, which you admire, will immediately turn the happy switch on in your system.

Gone are the days when changing furniture was not even considered as luxury for middle class people. All their lives they would keep the furniture passed onto them from generation before they shred into pieces, but not any more now.
There are a lot of websites and startups, who help you, rent the furniture for certain period of time. If you are bored of the furniture or have grown liking for another set of furniture, rent it out from them.
The price is reasonable and the pain of carrying them from places to places and generation to generation will be easier.
Colors have very strong effect on psychology as per studies, dark colors induce strong feelings like romance, anger, mood swings, whereas light colors persuade soft feelings like joy, cozy, satisfaction.
Thus it is advised that a well trained interior decorator finishes the home with changing wall colors, suitable for the moods. Like for example dark colors in bedroom for enticing romance, light colors for study to keep the mood free from other negative thoughts and light color in kitchen, especially white, to keep the cheerful mood while cooking.
