What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Work the lightNothing beats natural light to improve the mood and create a tranquil atmosphere. However, for apartments with little or no sunlight, a mix of lights, which will allow you to control the intensity and the areas to be lighted, is a great alternative. A combination of indirect and diffused lighting, such as floor lamps, uplighters, downlighters and table lamps, works well in creating a warm ambience. Avoid harsh fluorescent lights and strong direct overhead lighting.Tip: Incorporating reflective surfaces (such as a mirror or lacquered walls) will visually double the amount of natural light your room gets.Look for lighting products on Houzz

1. Clear away clutterComing back home should always make you sigh with relief, with its soothing environment instantly injecting a welcoming, feeling the moment you set foot inside. Decluttering and restrained ornamentation can do that. As in this space by Praxis, you can commence by offloading things you don’t need and make space only for what’s necessary and things that spark joy.
2. High- and mid-sheen emulsions for roomsAlso known as velvet, satin or silk emulsions, these paints look elegant and are some of the most commonly used paints in interiors. The high- or mid-sheen finish is smooth, washable and has enhanced radiance because of its ability to reflect a bit of light. To retain the shine of the surface, routine cleaning should include wiping the walls with a damp cloth every three months.Tip: Certain emulsions like Royale Aspira from Asian Paints come with a five-year warranty, which covers defects like flaking, peeling, fading and fungal growth. For a fire-proof home, consider paints that are flame-spread resistant.
