|Last week, we detailed how decluttering is beneficial for your mental health. This week, we’re bringing you some more mood-boosting content by giving you a list of our favorite happy home accents.|
|1. Bright furniture|
Studies show that bright colors often have a beneficial effect on mental health. If you’ve been looking for a piece that’ll instantly brighten your room, why not add a bright couch, coffee table, or lamp to your space?
Happy factor: Who doesn’t love a pop of color?

Having natural elements in your home, like big, leafy plants and colorful flowers not only livens up a space, it allows you to exert your creative flair with discerning flower arrangements, hanging vase layouts, or whatever speaks to you.
Happy factor: Make daily watering an exercise in meditation

3. Area rugs
We’re not talking about bath mats or little foot warmers—we’re talking about BIG rugs that pack a visual punch! Whether it’s in a bold shade, or features a striking motif, a large area carpet instantly transforms a space for the better.
Happy factor: Big, soft area rugs are a natural pet magnet
4. Fruit bowls
Similar to plants, fresh fruits add a pop of color and zest to a space (literally!). They also make a room feel inviting, especially the kitchen.
Happy factor: They’re a home accent that doubles as a tasty, healthy snack
While vibrant prints are a must to brighten your home, we’re talking about artistic prints here! Prints, unlike paintings, are often inexpensive and are found in a huge variety of colors and designs.
Happy factor: Design your own for a space that truly feels like YOU
