Well, we can answer the second one, as it is using the right colors in your home!

Come with us now as we let you in on the colors that will make you happier than you ever thought possible and have a think about where you might like to incorporate them in your home!

1. Peach.

Soft and fuzzy, like its namesake fruit, peach is a naturally uplifting hue tat will leave you feeling all warm and romantic. A little less feminine than a standard pink, it works well with basically every other color too! 

2. Lavender.

For your bedroom, lavender is a perfect color choice! Naturally soft, sweet and refreshing, it will also make you that little more predisposed to sleeping, just like the flower it is inspired by! 

3. Purple and yellow.

Inspired by nature, mixing purple and yellow together will make any room instantly more sunny and natural, which in turn, will leave you perky and happy. Look how well they work with white as well!

4. Turquoise.

Vibrant and reminiscent of tropical shores, what could be better for garnering a happy, positive mindset than a color that makes you feel like you are on holiday, all year-round? Wow!

Turquoise works for all soft furnishings!

Yellow works amazingly well with so many other colors, but when combined with blue, it has such a nautical and fresh feel! We're happy just looking at this sofa and cushion combination, so imagine lounging on it!
