For more than a year we have been hearing statements that "the world will never be the same." The pandemic and isolation have largely changed our habits and behavior, which have every chance of staying with us even after the coronavirus threat disappears.
A person's attitude to home is also undergoing a transformation. Now it is not just a haven for a seven-hour sleep between work, daily chores and work again, but an important part of life. If during these hot summer days you wanted to transform the space around you, 2Shades is ready to share inspiring tips on creating a cozy atmosphere that will positively affect your emotional state.
Choose bright textiles
Curtains, bed linen, carpets or a tablecloth of bright shades will help you get even more pleasure from the sun and heat. This is a simpler and more budget-friendly option to raise the mood with the help of color therapy, which allows you to do without gluing wallpaper. The Missoni Home brand offers many extraordinary, delicate and pleasant shades of textiles. For example, a collection of bed linen, fabrics and decorative accessories
«Daydream» ("Waking Dream") presents a cheerful color scheme and an endless game of patterns.
Missoni Home likes to delight customers with playful shapes of its products. Take a closer look at the collection of cotton bath mats in the shape of a flower and the Wells diamond pouf.

Add natural light
It is not so important whether your windows are large or small. Pastel shades of furniture and decor will help to make the space more spacious, and soften the room, filling it with tranquility and comfort — multilevel uniform lighting, which in tandem with chandeliers create miniature appliances. Kartell Italian factory produces floor lamps, table and wall lamps. Many of the brand's lamps have a mirror surface that reflects the sun's rays and creates amazing glare. Among them are the Planet lamp with an elliptical plafond shape and a multifaceted surface, the portable Lantern lamp, charming in its eclectic design, as well as the compact Battery table lamp.

Light sources can be not only lamps and lamps, but also other objects made of transparent materials: for example, dishes. Kartell has a family of wine glasses, trays, plates and decanters Jellies Family.

Such dishes are not only a cutlery, but also a full—fledged element of decor.
Mirror is a friend of the interior
The mirror will visually expand the room and add more air to it. It exists not only to be hung on the wall — there are floor and table mirrors. But be careful with the bulbs on the chandeliers — the reflection may be too bright and hit the eyes. In this case, a stylized antique mirror with a patina will be suitable, from which a diffused light pleasant to the eyes will emanate.

Listen to your desires
Tips on home improvement are useful when you yourself clearly understand what the soul is for. The house is an intimate place, so only an individual interior that suits the desires and character of the owner can bring a sense of joy, happiness, peace and security. Think about what currently meets your needs and what you really want: surround yourself with cute little things or remove unnecessary items that you have not used for a long time. Remember: interior design is an area where you can always change, supplement and return, so do not be afraid to experiment and enjoy every moment spent in the walls of the house.
