Stress is a constant fixture in our lives! However, even if we cannot do away with stress completely, we can change the way we react to stress.
Also, how we create the perfect world around us has a big impact on how we feel and think.
Well, you can turn things around by introducing certain design tweaks to make your home like a bio bubble against stress. Here’s how you can do that.
The Importance of Natural Light
You can never undermine the value of natural light in a room. So, ensure a quality source of natural seeps in through the doors and windows to help make you feel serene inside.
Natural light is one of the best ways to achieve it.
You can go for well-modulated, diffused light that can be the perfect foundation to create a serene yet inviting ambiance in your home. When it comes to artificial light, try dimmers that lend a soft romantic light in the evening.
Choosing A Calm Color Palette
Color sets the mood for the room and gives the illusion of space. When decorating your home, the easiest tool to play with is color.
It helps manipulate your mood in an instant. Explore various options and settle a combination of bright and muted colors to alternate between a calm and energizing vibe in the home. When it comes to your bedrooms, go for muted shades, and when it comes to the playroom or an exercise room, select more bright and energizing colors. Color lends functionality and even creates a narrative.
Paintings are one of the finest forms of art, expressing a thousand emotions that sometimes words can fail to express. The rare combination of colors and textures adds serenity and takes you close to nature. Ensure you select the right size and texture while you choose one—own one, which can be a complete showstopper and takes most of the attention of your guests.
But don’t just stick to one. Select a variety of paintings, mix acrylic with oil paintings to add to the narrative of your home. Imagine a stark wall, and when you adorn the very same stark wall with beautiful paintings, the wall will turn out to be a masterpiece. You can settle for something as simple as floral paintings, and you will be surprised at how much beauty and aestheticism the gorgeous flowers offer. It lends a touch of uniqueness to your home decor.
After you clear out the clutter of your home, it is time to organize. When you have everything in place, you have fewer things to worry about. Temper, style, organize and decorate your place to ensure there is a flow. Also, arrange it in a way that ensures your energy flow naturally in space, and it is easier to put things back in order.
Find a Balance
When space looks and feels too designed and perfect, it does not seem too homely; simultaneously, in some cases, a place that is too cluttered may make it feel too unorganized, and there is not enough order or structure. So, ideally, you have to strike a balance between the two. A Japanese saying describes just the very thing, Wabi-Sabi or imperfectly perfect or perfect imperfection. When you combine opposite techniques, it can create the perfect balance of harmony and depth. There must be a semblance of orderliness in disorder.
That balance is hard to strive for and only comes with practice. Sometimes, a mismatched painting or a discordant color or a mismatched rug gives sense to the overall scheme of things. If we can put forward the example of a color-coordinated outfit, say a blue outfit with blue heels, blue earrings, blue belt, literally blue everything.
Does it make it more beautiful, or if you break the pattern and a yellow purse, a tan belt, or white earrings, the whole look then comes across as curiously non-jarring? Well, for your home, too, several pieces of jarring and non-jarring elements combined to turn it into harmonizing whole.
Well, these are just some of the things you can add to your home decor to make your home look serene, gorgeous, and invariably inviting!
