Boost Your Mood and Style: Incorporating Dopamine Dressing into Your Home Decor
What is dopamine dressing?
When it comes to home decor, we often focus on aesthetics and visual appeal. But have you ever thought about how your surroundings can impact your mood and overall well-being? Dopamine dressing is a concept that involves using colors, patterns, and textures in your home decor to stimulate the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and happiness.
Benefits of incorporating dopamine dressing into your home decor
Incorporating dopamine dressing into your home decor can have numerous benefits for your mental and emotional well-being including improved mood, increased productivity, enhanced creativity, and reduced stress.
How to incorporate dopamine dressing into your home decor
Colors play a crucial role in dopamine dressing. Certain colors are known to stimulate the release of dopamine and evoke specific emotions. Here are a few examples:
Yellow is associated with joy, optimism, and energy. Incorporate yellow accents, such as throw pillows or artwork, into your space to create a cheerful and uplifting atmosphere.
Blue is known for its calming and soothing effects. Use shades of blue in your bedroom or living room to create a serene and relaxing environment.
Green is associated with nature and balance. Incorporate plants or green elements into your decor to create a sense of tranquility and harmony.
Adding patterns and textures for dopamine dressing
Geometric patterns can add visual interest and stimulate the brain. Incorporate geometric prints in your rugs, curtains, or accent pieces to create a modern and dynamic look.
Incorporate textured fabrics like velvet or faux fur to add depth and tactile stimulation to your space. Consider using textured throw blankets, pillows, or rugs for a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
Natural textures like wood or stone can create a connection with nature and evoke a sense of calm and grounding. Use wooden furniture or stone accents to add warmth and earthiness to your decor.
Incorporating dopamine dressing into your home decor can have a significant impact on your mood and overall well-being. So go ahead, get creative, and transform your home into a haven of happiness and style.
– SPIDER SEASON IS HERE-
Agent Contribution: Catherine Stephens, Operations Manager/Partner Agent
Spider season is upon us here in Northeast LA!
In case you haven’t already found yourself batting away a recently-walked-into web, the rest of us can tell you, spider season is upon us here in Northeast LA! Autumn is the season of the arachnid in Southern California – House spiders tend to be most visible in the late summer and early autumn, when males come out to mate. Though it often appears that they are coming in at that time because the summer warmth is going away, they are in fact more visible because they are scurrying around to try and find a mate.
While scary to some, and simply annoying to others, spiders are a part of life, and are beneficial for pest control in your gardens and home. That said, and since almost none of us want to resort to toxic pesticides, here are 10 Natural Ways To Keep Spiders Out Of Your House, including natural repellants (everyday items, like vinegar, mint & citrus), as well as housekeeping (banish dust!) and landscaping tips (watch for leaf piles).
If you do find yourself face to face with an 8-legged “friend”, of the 67 spider families with literally thousands of species, 59 families are found in California; Fortunately, almost all spiders that you can find in California are harmless for humans or pets – the few potentially dangerous species are rare and relatively easy to identify.
Or perhaps you want to – like, by choice – see some of these creepy crawlers up close and personal? Head over to our very own Natural History Museum to check out their “Spider Pavilion”. Centrally located in Exposition park next to the LA Coliseum, this one-of-a-kind seasonal exhibit (only runs September 17 – November 26!) provides a rare glimpse into the secret life of spiders… and the magnificent webs they weave, including those of the garden spider, which can range up to almost ten feet in diameter! Just try not to walk into that one…

– LOVE WORDS –
We love our clients and they love us….
❝We had an exceptional homebuying experience with Francine from the L34 Group. As New York transplants, her dedication was evident as she conducted virtual home tours on our behalf, and provided detailed videos to help us make informed decisions. Throughout the process, Francine’s communication was outstanding, and she guided us through the offer, escrow, and closing with ease. Her honesty about the pros and cons of each property was refreshing, and we felt confident in her expertise. Thanks to Francine’s personalized and attentive service, we found our dream home and highly recommend her and the L34 Group for anyone in search of a reliable and caring realtor.❞
