Wellbeing and interior design are two elements that you’d probably never guess go directly hand in hand, but they really do! Your environment has a huge effect on your mood and your wellbeing, so you should always make an effort to create the most tranquil and mood-boosting space possible! To build a home that builds your happiness, you’ll need to make a few adjustments.

Light matters!

Light and mood have a very close relationship. It’s a lesser-known fact, but the blue glow behind LED and strip lighting can have a major negative impact on how our brains function. The best cure? Natural light! Us humans need natural light, it makes you feel brighter, healthier and actually charges you up with a little bit of energy, cool right? Open up your home to as much natural light as possible! When you have limited window exposure, you should add some more lamps, fairy lights and candles to boost the overall glow of your home and make you feel that extra bit happier when you wake up in the morning.

Plants have power

Bring the outdoors inside to calm your mind. House plants, flowers and leaves all bring an air of natural serenity to even the drabbest of spaces. This one is pretty obvious, but it’s key to remember when you want to up your wellbeing and self-care. Plants actually have healing properties so they are definitely a must for your kitchen, lounge and bedroom. Is your bathroom feeling extra dreary? Pop a plant in there! Although this isn’t the traditional place for foliage, it can really transform the functional space.

Things you love

Our things affect how we see ourselves and how we respond to our space, fact. Build your identity and your spirits by placing objects that you truly love in your household. This can be items that you love to look at, things that have wonderful memories attached to them or maybe even family heirlooms. Antique pieces passed through the direction are beautiful, unique and charge your home with emotional meaning! Build your home around statement, sentimental pieces to really up the personality and comfort of your space. Remember that investing in furniture you love is better than picking up things purely because you can afford them. Grit your teeth and wait for upcoming furniture clearances in Sydney to nab pieces that you love at a lower price! 

Keep it clear, when you can

Ok, we can’t always avoid clutter, sometimes it just finds you! But, make an extra special effort to steer clear of mounds of laundry, overcrowded surfaces and messy displays. A calm, cohesive room makes for a quiet mind, so keep it clear! Being more minimal with your belongings means that you’ll actually be able to see and appreciate what you have, and you’ll be able to take care of it properly too! A stuffed and chaotic room will never look calm, clean or homely, so put a pin in that habit and watch your wellness grow!

Factor in scents

Candles, diffusers and essential oils are big business for a reason. Introducing a scent that you love into your home is the ultimate indulgence into self-care! You can really change how you feel in a space by burning a warming, comforting candle. Add a fresh, zesty scent into the bathroom, bring a salty sandalwood cocktail into the living room and keep it hearty and spicy for your bedroom. This will have a big effect on how you feel when you’re winding down at home, promise!

By making these small adjustments, you’ll find that you feel happier and more at home in your space. How you feel in your home is incredibly important so don’t skimp on it, invest in yourself and your wellness!

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
