Plants

Plants bring natural beauty to our living spaces. By creating texture and balance, a room or patio can be transformed into an environment that comforts and welcomes. But, just like Miss Universe, plants can do more than look pretty. They’ve been proven to reduce stress so well that one glance at a plant lowers your heart rate. They also help clean the air we breathe by absorbing toxins and acting as little oxygen factories. Plants simply make us feel better.

Starting some one place in the home that needs focused on and decide what should stay or go. Adding extra shelves to the walls or book cases will press that extra pieces against the wall creating more clear space for fun and activities.
