How to Create a Calm and Peaceful Home

Think about your favorite place


A simple idea: Think about where you felt the happiest and at peace; and bring the elements of that place into your home. For example, if you love travelling, adventure and are a sea lover, you can create your design scheme accordingly. The calm green, blue and ivory palette is ideal for this. Use your favorite tones, although natural and soft color tones are often associated with peaceful spaces.



Colors have a real therapeutic effect on us. According to Feng Shui and Chromotherapy, you can examine which colors affect your psychology by watching the video below.



What matters is how you put the colors together. So whatever the color palette is used, be sure to balance and neutralize the color groups. Chromotherapy helps to increase the energy of your space and bring calm feeling.


Let's slow down


Life is hectic, but don't forget to calm down by taking small breaks for reflection. Like us, your space also needs a calming down every now and then. Even if you like very dominant and striking tones/forms, you must ensure the minimal/maximal balance by including neutral tones and minimal forms. If you are a true minimalist, you can definitely refer to Scandi style. Click here to view Bold minimal, the trend of both sophisticated and serene spaces.



Relax


A comfy blanket provides comfort and a stylish look almost anywhere you need an extra layer, whether you're relaxing on the couch or working at the dining table.



Use the right forms


Besides creating a spatial trend and design match, shapes also have important effects on our psychology. We recommend organic and soft forms to create a peaceful space. Besides your home, office, kitchen, etc. be sure to review the video for which forms create which effects for space types.


Relaxing Power of Green

Why people living in the city center should have plants in their homes?

Plants should not be considered merely decorative. Besides improving the air quality of the space, looking after the plants, growing them and taking care of them is a meditative experience in itself. Moreover, this experience has many benefits for us. So, to get away from the stress of the city life even for a minute, add these wonderful creatures to your life as much as possible.


What are the best indoor plants for a happier, healthier home?

Tall and large plants, of course. The tropical house palms in particular are eye-catching and create a real focus in the space. You don't have to buy ready potted indoor plants. With a little more care and patience, we can recommend you to obtain it in seed form.


• Why is placing your plants in the right spot in your house important?

Light, light, light... This is the key factor for placement. If you don't have enough natural light—which is usually stronger in south-facing windows—then we can recommend incredibly resilient, low-light snake plants.


Disconnect from technology


Do you want to keep the stress of city life away from your home? Even if we all tied up with technology, unplugging from tech improve your quality of life.


Out of sight out of mind


• Keep your computer in your study or in a place where you can close the door.


• Reserve a drawer for phones. Ask everyone to keep it there during mealtime.


Set up your phone


• After 20:00 or 21:00, keep your phone in "do not disturb" mode to silence calls, text messages, emails and other alerts. If you're worried about missing an emergency, you can set it up to let some people through (for example, your children) or to notify you when the same person tries to call you twice.


• If you can't resist the constant scrolling on social media, uninstall the apps. Force yourself to check social media form the computer, or at least take the extra step of logging in from your phone's browser.


Creating a command center


• Set a central place where you can charge your phone and store mail and other paperwork. Sort paper items into folders marked "to do", "to read" and "to shred". When you plug in your phone, get something from the "to do" or "to read" file. Thanks to this, you can not only achieve something, but also forget about your phone for a while.


Move carefully


• They say it takes at least 30 days of routine to turn into a habit, so take it easy. Be honest with yourself about what really works. It's better to take baby steps than to start fast and give up completely.


Music is food for the soul


The noisy order of the city puts stress on all of us whether we are aware of it or not. In fact, what we all need is the sound of nature or music that makes you feel peaceful and alive. With a minimalist wireless bluetooth speaker, your favorite playlists and your smartphone are waiting for you to add positive energies to your day and home.

Feel the amazing and deep impact of Zen philosophy in your space. Would you like to create such a space in your home?


Leave a Space. If you don't have an entire room for meditation, you can use a decorative screen to divide a room and designate a space for meditation. Then get ready to feel more comfortable with your back to the window, wall or a corner. You can arrange the rest of the space according to how you feel.


Start with your favorite blankets, cushions or throw pillows. Then turn on music that represents a calm feeling. Let the space fill with a soothing scent with an incense or a scent of lavender. All the details for the right meditation space are in this article.


Art


Sculptures or paintings... Visual arts are not only decorative but also important elements that create depth and serenity by adding an identity to your space. Including a few art forms that are compatible with the color and form balance of your space is an ideal way to make your space and you more complete.

Have better sleep


Don't bring your work into the bedroom. Leave the screens (cell phones, laptops etc.) out and make sure there is a boundary between work and sleep environments. One of the reasons why people have poor sleep quality is that they cannot set this limit. Adjust the thermostat and humidifier. It is known that their ideal temperature for sleep is between 65 and 70 degrees with 30 to 40 percent humidity. Use blackout curtains in your bedroom. In general, darkness is good because it prompts the pineal gland to start producing melatonin. Blackout curtains can make a big difference for people who live in the city where light can be unavoidable.



Start dimming your lights even before you go to bed. Create a semi-dark environment to complete the darkness to help the transition from wakefulness to sleep. Use cotton sheets. Our body's internal temperature should begin to drop before we fall asleep. Cotton allows your body to breathe, loses heat and moisture. Reduce allergens. One thing people forget is that allergies can affect sleep. If you suspect you suffer from them, purchase bedding made of hypoallergenic material and wash your sheets – especially your pillowcases – at least once a week. Replace carpets from time to time wherever possible.
