In these erratic &testing times, adequately coupled with stressful modern lifestyle make it a challenge for most of us to find tranquility and peace. To assuage the same, we thought of bringing to you some tips and tricks from our interior experts to help you turn your home into a bubble of bliss and peace.
So, let’s dive in!
- A Calming Palette
Color inherently has mood-altering properties. However, research in the realm of color psychology has also found that the feelings elicited by particular colors are deeply rooted in one’s personal choice and experiences. This is exactly why our color experts often conduct in-depth discussions with our clients to find the perfect color for their space that reflects their personality and induces a feeling of calm and happiness.
However, a general rule of thumb when creating a calm space is to go for soft hues, neutral tones, or earthy colors inspired by nature. Some of our fave colors for creating a calming mood are –
- Powder blue
- Dusty rose.
- Comforting Coziness
Focus on incorporating softness into your space. Since we live in a tropical climate, thick and fuzzy fabrics like faux fur can feel very warm and uncomfortable. Instead, invest in plush textured rugs, cloudy cushions and pillows, and soft seating arrangements.
- Minimalism FTW!
Clutter causes anxiety, coupled with Stress, and depression; is a scientifically proven fact. One of the most effective ways to avoid clutterin your space is to take a minimal approach. Do away with unnecessary accessories and décor items from your space. De-clutter the ancient treasure chest that is your closet. Invest in furniture with modern, chic, sleek designs featuring clean lines.
Be smart about accessories and invest in those décor items that look great and also serve a purpose. For example, artsy sculptured planters that act as an art piece and a pot for your house plants at the same time.
- Electronics at Bay
It is best to avoid electronics in an area where you want to create a relaxing mood. By electronics we especially mean television sets and computers. However, if you are trying to give your living room a makeover or do not have enough space to place your television set elsewhere, then consider keeping them concealed.
- Aromatherapy to Invoke Your Senses
Soothing scents have been used traditionally in almost every culture to soothe and heal the mind and body. You can create a very spa-like relaxing ambiance with scented candles. Want to go for a more eco-friendly way? Try potpourri. However, nothing beats the beauty of a simple, compact humidifier with a few drops of natural essence oil to scent your entire room.
Some of the best calming scents are –
- Soft Glow &Some Halo!
Bright lights are great to keep sleep at bay and keep you active. But, they are not conducive for relaxation. Research shows that blue light plays a deep role in relaxing us, unlike white light. Keep the intensity of your lights soft and ambient.
