New Survey Finds Small Décor Changes in Your Home Can Affect Your Mood

HomeGoods® commissioned national survey; identified six home décor resolutions that can boost your happiness

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., (SEPT. 26, 2013) – /PRNewswire/ – A new survey released today by leading off-price home fashions retailer HomeGoods found that the décor in your home can impact your mood. According to the survey findings, 93% of Americans felt a room’s décor can positively or negatively affect someone’s mood, of which 77% had at least one room in their homes that needed attention. Released in time for fall decorating and holiday entertaining, the survey found that boosting your mood doesn’t have to come at a price; great news for the 54% of Americans who haven’t made the décor changes they want because it’s too expensive. In fact, nearly all (99%) of people surveyed felt that simple décor updates – improved lighting, stylish organizational solutions, decorative accents – could make them feel happier without breaking the bank. Through these survey insights, HomeGoods has created six happy home resolutions to demonstrate easy and affordable ways to incorporate small changes that can boost your mood.

“Updating your home’s décor doesn’t have to be complicated. Easy, decorative changes that speak to personal style, like adding colorful pillows or a graphic rug, may be all you need to refresh your home and ultimately make you feel happier in your space,” says interior designer and TV personality Genevieve Gorder.
