1.Increased optimism

People who live in homes with bright interior décor and/or sufficient natural lighting tend to be happier and more optimistic. Your state of mind immediately improves upon entering a room with beautiful furniture and fabrics that conform to your tastes and preferences. Decor and furnishings that you love stimulates your happy hormones and raises your optimism in life.

2. Décor’s calming effect

Adding greenery and other nature-friendly decorations into your living spaces can help you to cool down and be calm at all times. Green plants signify growth and continuity, which serves as an assurance that no matter how hard life is proving to be, there still is hope for a better future.

3. Cheering you up

You don’t deserve to feel lonely and sad in your home. That is why you need to choose a décor that cheers you up and encourages you to be happy no matter what. Think of that antique you acquired during an important and fruitful trip abroad or that you received as a gift from someone who is very close to your heart. If you hang it strategically such that your eyes land on it first before scanning the rest of the room, then it will cheer you up and make your stay in the home worthwhile.

4. Bragging rights

We all love to feel good about ourselves. A word of praise and admiration from people around us means a lot. And which is a better way to make a statement to your visitors than through your interior décor? Getting the bragging rights over every homeowner in your friends’ list is good for your confidence

5. Increased ambition

Painting your walls red or blue makes you feel powerful and passionate. It improves your energy and ambitions to achieve more. Purple and pink represent confidence and stability. All these factors combined make you ambitious and increase your chances for success.

6. Making you organized

How organized is your home? Keeping your home tidy and well organized at all times improves your organizational skills and helps you to de-clutter your life.

7. Encouraging personal growth

Metallic decorations make people feel strong and capable. Wooden furniture makes people feel complete; it makes life seem beautiful. Those two combined encourage personal growth in many ways.

8. Typography Art for Inspiration

Thanks to tech advancement, it is now possible to make beautiful art out of lettering. The art of letters is both contemporary and futuristic, promising to revolutionize the world of craftsmanship. Some of the most legendary pieces of the inspirational wall art are made through typography.

The good thing about typography is its ability to use 2D and 3D imagery to make your living spaces more stylish and highly sophisticated. Other typographers craft inspirational messages in their art as a way of renewing people’s hope. They can, for example, take motivational quotes from past and modern thinkers and then cleverly pin it on their art in an inspiring and conveyable way.

Typography has also made it possible for artists to spectacularly reinvent legendary characters like the Batman and the Iron Man. If you were/are a fan of these legends, then hanging these decors on your interior walls will positively affect your wellbeing.
