A relaxing living room
Home is where relaxation should be key, especially since most of us live busier lives than ever before. Designing your home for maximum relaxation is a great strategy to help you find peace and calm when you enter your home environment.
Focus on purchasing pieces of furniture – especially your upholstered sofas and chairs – that help you create a soft and gentle living space:
– Less structured
– More rounded edges than square corners
– Well cushioned
– Soft, sensuous fabrics
– Comfortable construction
– No-fuss, informal slip covers
Finish off your relaxed furniture with other home elements that can help you feel more relaxed including:
– Soft lighting
– Calming paint colors
– Natural materials and colors
– Puffy throw pillows
– Silky rugs (maybe even a shaggy rug or faux fur rug!)
– Soothing scents created by candles and fresh flowers
– Translucent window fashions
In the bedroom, soften your bed with an upholstered headboard. Add a sumptuous duvet, lots of comfortable pillows and lighting that can be dimmed.
Adding relaxed furniture and accessories can help you feel calm and rested – and actually make you feel more at home in your home.
