It is important that all homes are calm and peaceful, and that guests feel at ease in your property.
After being at work all day or looking after the children, a relaxing environment is necessary for having some quiet time.
Take a look at these tips to help you create an inspiring yet serene space:
- Remember every room
As you start to think about making your home more peaceful, include every room in your plans. You could start by removing all clutter from each room of the house.
As well as being organised and clean, every room should be styled with appropriate furniture that gives a feeling of belonging.
- Pick the right colours
Colours can change our mood and feelings. The shade of each room can have an impact on the homeowner and everyone visiting the home.
Natural, earthy hues can have a calming effect, while soft tones, such as white and beige, are comforting. You could use two complementing colours in a room, featuring them in accents throughout the space.
- Accessories that make you smile
A really easy way to encourage positivity in your home is through accessories that make you happy. These could be family photographs, a specific painting or a special souvenir – anything that reminds you of good moments.
Plants are a simple addition that boost your mood. A small plant placed on the windowsill adds a natural and bright feel to the room.
- Choose fresh fabrics
Curtains and bedding should be light and flowing for a relaxed vibe. Linens and wools are natural and warm with comforting textures.
Remember natural textiles for cushions and throws to add a soothing touch.
