It’s now 2019, and with the start of a new year comes the perfect opportunity for change and renewal. We can improve upon ourselves, whether that’s our physical health, appearance, mental outlook, or all of the above. We can also reinvent our surroundings, especially in our home, where we spend most of our waking moments; these ideas will help you do just that, ringing in the new year with new style, smarts, and savings.
What better way to brighten up your home and your mood than to paint an entire room or just an accent wall a bright, vibrant color? For this reason, Pantone Color Institute selected Living Coral, a “life-affirming” and “nurturing” shade, as 2019’s color of the year. Want to give this “coral hue with a golden undertone” a try? Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, recommends pairing it with blue for a complementary color scheme or with hot pink for a "nostalgic vibe."

Sleep Like a Queen (or King)
More than one third of adults in the US don’t get a good night’s sleep, according to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Lack of sleep is associated with a slew of health conditions, like obesity and heart disease. One way to help ensure a good night’s sleep is to change out your mattress every 5 to 7 years. You should also choose a bed frame that has center support, which prevents your mattress from sagging.
Eco-friendly decorating is easier than you think, and it can complement your look, whether your style is Classic Home, Bungalow, or Refined Mix. By simply purchasing a quality piece of furniture now rather than a poorly made piece that will have to be replaced in the near future, you’re saving landfill space. You can also seek out furniture that is made from recycled, reclaimed materials, thus breathing new life into perfectly usable lumber or objects.
Remember—your home environment affects your overall well-being, since you live your life in it. Hopefully, these ideas will help you refresh and improve your surroundings for 2019, and you can start the year off with the new style and soul that you deserve!
