Moll Anderson: Paint Walls Yellow To Brighten Room
Moll discussed the importance of creating a space that “draws you in” as soon as you enter. Yellow is a great color for walls, because it’s bright and energetic. Or, if you can’t commit to such a bright paint color, try yellow accents like throw pillows. Orange is another bright color that’s a bit warmer.
Moll Anderson: Decorate Home With Flowers
It’s scientifically proven that women feel romantic around flowers. The smell, as well as the bright colors, instantly enhance your mood. In a dark space like Cheryl’s, it’s important to bring the outside in. Add natural details such as greens and branches to your decor.
Also try going for a brisk walk and playing music, because music is known to combat depression.
