In home design, we often find ourselves looking for ways to add character to a room to make it feel energetic and bold. While a cheerful room is lovely, some rooms are meant to have a more serene look and feel to them, such as the bedroom and for some, the living room.
A serene room brings comfort, pleasure, and relaxation to those who are in it, giving them a place to retreat to when they want to unwind and decompress. To start, you do not want your walls to encourage energy and vibrancy, so it’s best to avoid red or yellow. To create a calm and stress-free atmosphere, consider using muted pastels, like lavender, creamy blue, soft green, or neutrals in general.
A minimal design approach will also work best, as clutter has never created a sense of relaxation, but instead, only stress! Avoid furniture or décor that has too many patterns to it, and if you’re looking to add dimension without pizazz, consider chunky throw blankets that have a bit of texture to them. Along the same lines, make your space extra cozy and comfortable with plush furnishings, such as bedding and pillows.
How would you choose to make your home feel more serene?
