Creating Tranquility in Your Home
We all need a space to decompress, relax, and unwind now more than ever. As we are spending more time indoors, it’s important that we find refuge in our own homes. There are a few simple ways you can transform your chaotic house into a serene sanctuary. It starts with thoughtful and well-designed spaces.
The last thing you want to do is stress about creating a stress-less environment. Don’t worry, I’ve got over 20 years of design experience to share and help you with creating a tranquil home. First things first…(take a deep breath!)… and follow these tips:
Start with the Colors of Nature.
Neutral, earthy wall tones set the stage for a clean and fresh space. Farrow & Ball is a beautiful resource to get started. Explore this European paint brand with colors like skimmed milk-white, skylight, and skimming stone to inspire a calming feel to your space. Bringing in a sense of nature, these paints start the canvas of your room. Add in texture to open the senses.
Think of Wood as a Neutral.
Natural wood is a great element that can bring the peacefulness of nature outside, into your home. Reclaimed wood shelving, wood paneling accent walls, tables, and lighting fixtures serve as unique ways to incorporate texture into your space. Since wood functions as a neutral, different shades and grains can be mixed in one design.
Make it personal.
Fill your heart and soul with your own retreat. Texturized details and images can be used to break up the neutrality of the room and add personality to your design. Bring in gorgeous books full of images of places to travel and connect with nature.
As we spend more time in our homes, it is more important now than ever we make it a space we can find light-hearted joy and tranquility. These ideas are just the beginning.
