The Home Edit: How to make home your happy place

The Home Edit: How to make home your happy place
We're all spending a little (or a lot) more time at home these days. Even though our wanderlust is stronger than ever, and we're missing family and friends, we've been trying to make the most of it.
And you know what, Bellas? Staying home doesn't have to be boring. With the right special touches, we can bring all our favourite places and experiences into our home. Today we wanted to share exactly how we're doing it!


Plan a picnic

Even if you don't have a sweet park or beach to visit nearby, you can still have all the fun of a perfect picnic in your backyard. 

You will need:

A picnic blanket or rug (try the Crystal Forest Picnic Rug or the Velvet Throw in Patches)
A basket or bag for your tasty treats (the Wandering Folk Cooler Bag shown here in Sage was made for this!)
Some (non-breakable) glassware. Try the Flemington Acrylic range or the delightfully colourful colourful Picnic Folk tinware shown below.
Something to do (take away the temptation to look at your phone!). We love journalling with a beautiful notebook like the Ishani.

Discover a new favourite meal

Now of course, you can't have a picnic without some delicious food to snack on.
Eating at home can get old pretty quickly (especially if you're the one doing all the cooking!) but having some enticing new recipes to try can definitely make those weekday dinners more exciting.
We love Mexico: The Cookbook for authentic recipes that can be easily recreated at home (it has over 700 recipes, Bellas!) or The Modern Bohemian Table.


Make space for things you love

While you're busy creating your dream space, also think about how you can make your home work for the life you want to create.
Want to wake up earlier? Make a cosy spot where you can't wait to sit and drink your morning coffee while the sun comes up.
Want to make creating dream outfits easier? Re-organise your wardrobe so everything is easy to see.
Have something you want to wear or use more often? Put it out on display to remind yourself!
Just a few things we're loving right now:
Siren Cowrie Choker (Sign Up for Restocks!)

Fill your bookshelf with good reads 

When was the last time you sat down and read a really good book? Maybe a little longer than you'd like?

Nothing beats the feeling of soaking in something uplifting when you need it the most. Keep your bookshelf stocked with some great titles and you'll always have something to reach for! 

If you want to take this important ritual to the next level, try some of our favourite wellness reads to get you inspired:

Try 101 Moments of Joy & Inspiration or The art of Gratitude from Meredith Gaston, or 365 Days of Wellness by Lisa Messenger.


Get some inspiration

Still hungry for more boho home inspiration? Okay, we like your style!
Add these books to your reading list for endless interior and home inspo:
Jungalow - Decorate Wild - the ultimate boho style handbook for the home.
Travel Home - to bring your favourite places to you!
The Art of Hygge. - Hygge (pronounced "hu-gah') is a Danish word that describes the feeling of being cosy, comfortable and at peace with the world. More of that, please!

We would love to see how you take these ideas and put them into action in your own home, Bellas! Feel free to tag us on Instagram using @bellaboheme so we can see all your creations.
