Why Is the Heart Associated with Love?

From the earliest experiments in anatomy in Egypt in the second century BC, the heart has been associated with emotions.

As scientists followed nerves around the body, they saw that the vast majority of them seemed to lead to the solar plexus in the chest.

This gave rise to the theory that the heart was the seat of emotion and reason. It was considered the basis of thought.

Later, the Greeks believed that the heart was the seat of everything; similar to our belief that the brain makes us who we are.

The idea is reinforced by the fact that our heart pounds when we get excited.

Decorate Your 1st Home on a Tight Budget

When moving into your first home, you probably have a tight budget for decor. Fortunately (aside from the basics of a couch, dining table, and bed), a few targeted pieces will go a long way towards giving you a high design look on a low budget:

1. Rugs. Spend a bit of your budget on a few nice accent rugs. They add color and depth to your space, and set off your few furnishings.

2. End/coffee tables. Even a plain old couch can be enhanced with end tables or a coffee table that has the look you want.

3. Lamps/lighting. Search for interesting lighting that makes a statement without being expensive. Lamps, pendant lights, wall lights, etc. There are many low-cost look-alikes that add character to a space.

4. Paint. After getting your accent rugs, couch, and lighting, it's time to choose paint colors. When matched to your furnishings, painting completes your décor. 

5. Plants. When you lack a lot of furniture and other decor, purchase plants to fill in the empty spaces.
