If your mood is always changing, I definitely recommend going this route. ⁠ If you love bold, red or yellow would be great colours for you, but using muted colours or an accent wall instead of entirely red room would be your best bet.

Here are some tips if you are downsizing! ⁠ Take photos of your home before you downsize.

(Once you find the right house, ask the seller for a record of a year's worth of utility bills.)⁠ -Maintenance.
