Give Your Home the Detox Treatment

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

It's January so many of us are full of aspirations of healthy living and exercise.  It's well documented that gym memberships rise by approximately 12% in January and I wonder how long you will keep to your new regime.  I too have set myself some eating and exercise goals and committed to stick to them long term.  I even made an avocado and kale smoothie this weekend and before I hear the roars of - yuk! it was actually very delicious.  Some experts suggest that visualisation is an excellent way to achieve your goals, so it got me thinking, if I added a touch of detox treatment to my home would it aid my commitment?  Well one thing is for sure it couldn't hurt.  So out are the biscuit cushions, cupcake accessories and in are coming healthy interiors for my home. For the Kitchen There are so many wonderfully healthy accessories for your kitchen, bursting with colour they will certainly not go unnoticed.  Start your morning with your favourite tea in one of these beautiful nostalgic yet contemporary mugs.  They do have a 1970's feel about them so you couldn't get more on trend for 2015.
