Home Decor Tips to Create Calm Home Space
Creating a relaxing and beautiful space is easy; it only takes a few intentional adjustments to completely transform how you feel, work, and live.
Here are ideas we use for creating a calm space to recharge in:
Introducing natural light into the room improves our mood and reduces energy consumption. It looks beautiful, as the sun pours in from the skylight. If you don’t have a skylight, swapping heavy fabrics for sheer white curtains lets the perfect amount of light in.
The Five Element
The universe is made up of five elements: fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. Incorporating organic materials into a space has a calming effect, especially when compared to clinical and man-made interiors. Candles, wooden furniture, a vase of flowers, pot plants, and metal ornaments, are all examples of this concept that help to balance and improve any space.
Diffusers with a gentle mist or a candle scented with oils, do more than simply smell good. Lavender and rose geranium are two scents that are proven to calm the nervous system. The smell of eucalyptus from our Woodland Candle nearly always burns in the studio. It helps to clear the air and add to the calming atmosphere.
While there’s a place for collecting cherished items — too much hoarding can create a feeling of chaos. Keeping a space minimal, helps to keep the atmosphere easy-going. Minimalism can be achieved in a space with clean lines and a consistent colour palette, but be careful to incorporate warm light, warm neutrals and cozy textures to avoid it looking too clinical.
Indoor plants have been found to benefit our emotional and physical life. They lower blood pressure, remove toxins from the air and improve our general feeling of wellbeing. Succulents are a low maintenance option and look beautiful in any space from the bathroom, bedroom, courtyard, or studio.
