How do you feel walking in a flower garden or sitting on a grassy patch or hiking among tall evergreens? Being in nature feels good. Inviting natural elements indoors is one way to add a sense of happiness as these are reminders of beauty and freedom.

Here are a few tips how:

  • Have at least one tall potted plant: it’s amazing what this does to a space

  • Treat yourself to fresh flowers: scatter in vases and add pops of color everywhere

  • Elect floral/tree prints on fabrics, rugs, or wallpaper
