  • One thing needs to be changed. Plants do not use up oxygen and put out carbon dioxide. It is the exact opposite, and it has been proven that having certain plants all through your house actually clear out contaminants and allergens. Drs actually may recommend that you put some in your bedroom, as they oxygenate and purify the air. If you wake up with headaches after sleeping with a plant in the room, you most likely have some sort of allergy go that plant. I am not saying put 25 ferns throughout your home, but having plants in your home can be quite beneficial.

    These styles hit on the money for me. I think at one time or another I’ve used them all. And, at the time, I really liked them. However, like you said, you simply get tired of the *trend* after looking at it so many years. My happiest decor ideas have always been to use what I like so long as I’ll be able to change it in the future WITHOUT breaking the bank. Then I can really enjoy what I love at the time knowing it’s not a ever-lasting look. It’s just a moment in time!
