It is about the time of year that many of you will be hauling out bins of holiday lights and boxes of decorations to transform your home for the season. As you carefully place garlands on top of the mantle, you may be wondering, is it really the best time to be listing my home? The answer is yes! Not only do tasteful holiday decorations make a home feel cozy and inviting, but studies prove that ‘when we experience warmer coloured lights, candlelight or light from warmer bulbs, it puts us in a more positive mood.’ Take advantage of this holiday season to add a little warmth to someone’s life. Help them to imagine a shared meal with family and friends around a festive table, or to picture an intimate evening enjoying a glass of wine, from a local vineyard, around the soft lights of the tree. It doesn’t take much to add some holiday charm to your home, just remember to declutter before the decorations go up, and to keep it simple; less is more. List away this season and use a little holiday magic to light the way.
